Angela + Farhad’s wedding was in the Santa Cruz mountains, surrounded by redwoods, their loving family and friends. One of my favorite moments was when Angela surprised Farhad with a pocket watch with a photo of his mother. Another favorite moment was when Farhad surprised Angela by performing the song he wrote to prepose to her. They met at UC Berkeley, and the story goes that she was won over by his stellar lead drumming skills. However, the truth is she fell for his humility, light-hearted nature & self-assuredness.

Their wedding was unique & DIY. The color scheme was rainbow. The inspiration came from a trip they took to Nepal and India. To Angela the vibrant colors conveys joy and celebration. They had a Persian ceremony. And the backdrop was made from recycled Indian sari, and the pennants strung over the reception area is made from handmade Indonesian batik.
They made their rings at Fitzgerland Jewelry Studio in NY. They turned out beautiful!
