Mona and Bobby's wedding happened on a beautiful sunny day in September. The day began inside the Pacific Rim hotel, where she and her bridesmaids prepared for the day ahead. The morning was a flurry of activity as the girls were pampered with makeup and hair, amid flowers and dresses, rings and shoes!
Mona looked gorgeous in her Lazaro dress and Sergio Rossi shoes, and her bridesmaids looked lovely in soft shades of dusky pink. The men looked very handsome as well dressed in their suits and jackets.
Following the preparations, Mona and Bobby were led across the street to the Convention Centre where they had their first look. It's always lovely watching couples "see" each other for the first time on their special day - it's intimate, sometimes emotional, and super sweet to witness. The creative session followed with the wedding party around the seawall and Coal Harbour area. One of our favourite images was taken on the dock extending out into the water, right in front of the seaplanes taking off and landing!
After the creative session, it was back to the hotel, where Mona and Bobby had photographs taken in a private area on an upper patio. This was a perfect opportunity to have some downtime before the anticipation ahead at the ceremony. The ceremony was given by two officiants - Joanie Mitchell, who gave the civil ceremony, and Mr. Sopani, who delivered the Persian ceremony. The sofreh was stunning with all manner of delectable items and colour, as well as groups of goldfish in glass bowls!
The reception was a lively affair with Ali Fard at the helm as DJ. The music was an electric mix, with a distinctly Persian thread - it kept pretty much everyone on the dance floor! The delicious buffet dinner was followed by family and friend speeches - some funny, some touching.
Congratulations, Mona and Bobby - your wedding was elegant and fun, and we wish you the very best in the years to come!
