Payvand and Jeremy were married on April 25th at the Hilton in Chandler.  They had a traditional Persian Ceremony and it was simply breathtaking!!!  We absolutely adore photographing cultural ceremonies!  It is a wonderful way to learn about and experience the customs and traditions of other cultures throughout the world.

 

The sofreh table is the most ornate component in the persian wedding and this one was made by Payvand's mother, who did a beautiful job.  Some components of the sofreh table include the Mirror (of fate) "Aayeneh-ye Bakht" and two Candelabras (representing the bride and groom and brightness in their future) placed on either side of the mirror.  The mirror and candelabras are symbolic of light and fire, two very important elements in the Zoroastrian culture.  When the bride enters the room her veil is covering her face and when she sits down and the veil is removed the first thing the groom should see in the mirror is the reflection of his bride-to-be.  The sofreh is also decorated with a multitude of grains, nuts and spices each with it's own symbolic meaning.

 

Other notable components of the ceremony include a shawl of fine fabric held over the couple's heads by happily married female relatives and two sugar cones "Kalleh Ghand" made out of hardened sugar which are grinded together over the bride and groom's head (over the shawl held above their heads) throughout the ceremony to shower them in sugar, symbolizing sweetness and happiness.  A cup of honey to sweeten life is set on the sofreh and immediately after the couple is married they each dip a pinky finger in the honey and feed it to one another.

 

Payvand and Jeremy, let us start by saying you make an absolutely stunning couple.  It was truly our pleasure to not only be your wedding photographers but to take part in such a magnificent event.  Thank you for the opportunity!!  Hope you enjoy the photos ... there are sooo many more where these came from :-)!!!

 

Payvand's dress was Exquisite!!
