When I first met Sherma for coffee in the Valley, we bonded over many things, specifically our relationships with our grandmothers, and really didn’t talk too much about her upcoming nuptials at all.
Once we started talking specifics about working together over the next couple of weeks, I was incredibly impressed with Sherma’s wedding plans. She was going to marry Arash at the gorgeous Hummingbird Nest Ranch outside of Los Angeles, and had a hands-on approach to her design, taking on many DIY projects with the goal of being as involved as possible in making their big day feel exactly like it should.
I loved how everything came together for this amazing wedding - intimate, intricate, elegant, and yet still very personal and inviting. Wow. What an incredible introduction to my first experience documenting a Persian wedding. The traditions and symbolism were not only touching, but inspiring in their rich meanings. I adored every minute of my weekend with Sherma and Arash, and their friends and family.
Hope you all enjoy a look into this beautiful wedding, and congratulations to the lovely couple!
My little brother got married yesterday and I’m beyond thrilled to be here in Lucca, Italy with Rob and my new sister-in-law Samantha! Last night we walked through the city and around the wall shooting a night session…here’s a peek at the happy couple:
We absolutely loved this amazing destination wedding from 2011. We had to hold off on sharing these images on our blog because Kelly and Matt’s wedding was featured by the amazing Destination I Do Magazine. I’m so excited to be able to share a peek into this magical day, which has been a long time coming for this blog. Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday weekend and aloha, friends!
