Summer Wedding Bliss – Shaghayegh & Mahram – Aug.11.2012

Shaghayegh & Mahram celebrated their wedding with a Persian themed ceremony and reception at the John M.S. Lecky UBC Boathouse. Getting married with water in the background and being outdoors was very important to the couple. “Out of all of the places we looked at, the UBC Boathouse was the perfect place. When I saw it I fell in love” – Shaghayegh.

The couple celebrated with a Persian ceremony setup but had a non-religious ceremony. They also incorporated their Persian culture by having a large dance floor. They chose to have the room arranged with guests seated in a large u-shape with the dance floor in the middle of the room right in front of the head table. “We were really happy with the beautiful weather and loved the outdoor bar. Guests loved the bar on the balcony!” – Shaghayegh & Mahram.

Shaghayegh & Mahram used a variety of vendors to make their day special, including 3 of our preferred vendors!

StonePhoto was fantastic! They take very natural photos and made us feel very comfortable. We also did our engagement photos with them!” – Shaghayegh.

Savoury Chef provided the couple with a cocktail hour, dinner, dessert, and bar service. They went above and beyond for this couple, providing Shaghayegh & Mahram with an exclusive server that ensured that they too enjoyed food and drinks throughout the evening. “The food was great and the service was great, they really made sure that they took care of us too!” – Shaghayegh & Mahram. Their menu included: a roasted lamb carving station, pasta with wild mushrooms, salmon with citrus salsa, saffron rice pilaf, and a variety of salads.
