Sahar and Mike chose to elope at
in Fairfax, Virginia earlier this winter. They contacted me a couple weeks before the day and only invited immediate family and close friends. It was a beautiful, warm day for the outdoor ceremony. They had many of the Persian ceremony traditions including the grooms parents giving the bride a gift after the rings where exchanged. It was intimate and touching as they proclaimed their love for one another. After the ceremony, everyone enjoyed a relaxing brunch in DC.
