On a day Christine thought she was attending a business meeting with a friend, Samir surprised her with the proposal of a lifetime. A private rooftop dinner overlooking Times Square, an impromptu party with friends and co-workers downtown, and best of all, a trip to Atlanta where, instead of a housewarming party for Christine’s parents (which she thought was the purpose of the trip), an engagement party with both sides of the family who had flown in from all over.
The inspiration behind this couple’s luxurious celebration was the coming together of their two cultures- Persian and Indian. From the venue to the color scheme, Christine and Samir wanted to blend their cultures in a fun and inviting way. Choreographed dances performed by family members and a dhol player were just a few of the traditional elements they included, while table names that said love in one of the 30 languages their family and friends spoke were a nod to the diversity that made up their guest list.
The couple remembers some of their favorite moments as taking pictures together as husband and wife, watching their parents dance the night away without a care in the world, and ordering pizza right before the ceremony for the entire wedding party and stuffing their faces as fast as they could. It was a night uniquely them, and one they will never forget.
