Real Weddings



The setting for Rojia and Pouyan’s wedding ceremony was the luscious greens of The Manor Carrying Place Golf & Country Club in Toronto. Performed in front of a gorgeous gazebo overlooking a serene pond, the ceremony included a traditional Persian “Sofreh Aghd” floor spread elaborately designed on a riser and mirrors. The bride and groom sat on arm chairs facing the guests, with the “Sofreh Aghd” comprised of decorated fruits, pastries, candied nuts, candelabras and much more.

A theme of white, chic, contemporary accents was used for the overall décor. In the reception area, the couple sat perched on a raised platform behind a Lucite sweetheart shaped table – where a crystal chandelier hung overhead – decorated with white roses. Close family and friends sat nearby on two long communal tables topped with sequined linen, low floral centrepieces and candles fit in crystal holders. The two tables framed a white custom-made dance floor. The rest of the guests were welcome to tables fixed with white candelabras adorned with roses and a cozy lounge area with white couches and tables. Find this wedding in the June 2015 issue of Toronto’s Elegant Wedding Magazine.
