Sooke Prestige Wedding | Iranian Wedding


Sooke Prestige Wedding | Iranian Wedding

I met Golpar and Charles for their Sooke Prestige Wedding on their wedding day. This couple is madly in love. This is exactly the type of couple I love working with! They hosted an Iranian wedding with family and friends from Iran and all over the United States. Charles is a PhD student in Alabama who is from British Columbia. Golpar, from Iran, is a structural engineer in Florida. Needless to say, they spent a lot of time apart before their wedding. Long distance relationships can be tough, but they are also rewarding. You could see how much love they shared when they were together.

Planning an international wedding can be such hard work, but they pulled it off without a hitch. These two are so laid back and just so happy to be together. Paired with their love for each other, it was such a joyful occasion! I was honored to see them in my hometown of Sooke for their special day. A Sooke Prestige Wedding was the perfect fit. They wanted to incorporate cultural elements in their ceremony. There were beautiful fabrics and several meaningful foods and mementos. The ring box was my favourite, because inside it was a love note from when they first started dating. How sweet is that?!

The ceremony was so beautiful, unique, and heartwarming.

All of the guests formed a circle around them. The ceremony site has a gorgeous view of the Sooke harbour and the stunning mountains of Olympic National Park in Washington. It was a windy day, and we made it work with some beautiful portraits of this loving couple. After the ceremony, Golpar had a surprise visit from her dog! They then shared a wonderful meal and danced the night away. It was such a joy to listen to the speeches. With many guests coming from all over the world and Golpar and Charles living so far apart, they had wonderful and loving stories to tell.

Congratulations Golpar & Charles! I wish you the very best in your marriage! <3
