A Persian Celebration

One of my favorite events of 2007 was a celebration that was held in a Castle called Castello di Amorosa in Calistoga, California (Northern Napa Valley). It was a fairy tale evening that consisted of Persian Dancers, Beautiful Traditions including a Hookah Lounge and a very detailed Persian Altar called a Sofreh . This is what happens when 2 doctors from Harvard mesh and fall in love- an extraordinary event!!

There are so many out of this world photos from this event which was held in October that I would like to share with all of you but I am saving many of the pictures for my new website that I am working here is a sneak peek!!

The Persian Dancers were Outstanding!

The florist, Tanja from Blumengarten and myself collaborated together to design the look and feel, Pomegranite fruits were everywhere (very symbolic for Persians).

Autumn Wedding in Woodside

Here are a few images from an October wedding in Woodside. The couple wanted simple elegance as this was their second wedding this year (they just had a wedding in Korea a few weeks prior). The weather was impeccable and the bride's Monique Lhuillier gown was absolutely stunning!
