Real Weddings| Paras and Louis| Persian/American Wedding

Paras and Louis had a unique wedding event filled with American and Persian traditions. This beautiful couple had a two day wedding extravaganza! They began with a traditional Persian ceremony at the Casa Monica on Friday. They followed that by a traditional American wedding & reception on Saturday! They picked two of St. Augustine’s most beautiful and historic locations- The Casa Monica hotel and Lightner Museum. The team of all-star vendors brought to life Paras’ vision of classic elegance. Crisp white with luxury gold accents.

Paras’ style is timeless glamour. Everything was perfectly placed- both of her dresses were gorgeous! These two are such a vision. They took my breath away. And they are such sincere people. They are truly in love and so meant for each other!

The Conservatorie created a Calla Lily, Dahlia and Garden Rose bouquet for Paras. Tall Centerpieces were a combination of Hydrangea and manzanita branches and the low bud vases were filled with hydrangea and Calla Lilies. Candle illuminated White lanterns and gold mercury glass votives completed the decor.  

Their traditional American reception was fun filled- including a friendly games of cornhole, ring toss and jenga shared among guests. The Casa Monica catered a delicious spread of decadent seafood -including crab legs and oysters on the half shell. So yummy!
