Wedding Photographer: Tabby & Sam's Persian Wedding - Four Seasons Miami

Tabby and Sam's wedding was a blast! The beautiful bride, Tabby, happens to be 100% Persian, so they had a traditional Persian Wedding. I had never photographed a Persian wedding before, so there were new customs and traditions I learned about. It was all very interesting. First, the ceremony had a variety of different foods and items that all symbolize something different for the couple. For example, sugar is grated over their heads to 'sweeten' the marriage (seen in one of the photos below). The reception was also filled with rich Persian customs, such as the 'Knife Dance' done right before the cake cutting (also seen in photos below). They even had a bellydancer. And boy, did they LOVE to dance. The whole night, the dancing never stopped. It was one very exciting, fun-filled, and interesting wedding! I had a great time and loved photographing all of the excitement. Thank you Tabby and Sam for having such an awesome wedding! Congrats!!!

Venue: Four Seasons Hotel in Miami
