Ever After was excited to be a part of this beautiful Persian wedding. The event took place at a Private Residence in Paradise Valley and the home was literally transformed into a super wedding resort. The ceremony was full of culture. The alter was set up atop a special rug with low sitting chairs and included candies, spices, fruits, goldfish, honey, a mirror for the couple to look into and see their future, as well as lots of flowers. Each item brought the couple something special such as blessings of prosperity, fertility, happiness & love. The aisle too was very different than most we have designed. The bride wanted the petals scalloped from the beginning to the end with red, yellow and ivory petals. Over 500 roses were used to complete this design.
After the special ceremony full of poems & prayers sung & spoken by family & friends, the guests were ushered out of the large tent and to the cocktail hour. This poolside cocktail hour included a belly dancer for entertainment and food & drink of course. During this time, the ceremony site was being made into the reception site as well. The large team at Tri-Rentals & us at Ever After Florals made everything come to life as we moved in tables & rearranged chairs. We also set up each of the tables with linens and large floral centerpieces of multicolored roses. The event was very colorful and included colors such as teal, ivory, red, orange, and yellow. Tri-Rentals also lit up the tent with thousands of white lights in tulle netting to give the tent a soft glow which made the event very romantic as well.
Ever After Florals was very proud to be a part of this amazing wedding and loved working with the bride and her family. This will always be one of the most memorable weddings we have ever done.
