Kelley & Milad had double the fun on their wedding day! First a ceremony at University United Methodist Church followed by a Persian Wedding Austin TX at Villa Del Lago!  The sneak peek from UUMC is on the way, here is a sneak peek from their Persian wedding at Villa del Lago! I love the ceremonial elements.  One element includes a scarf being held over the bride and groom’s heads while two cones of hardened sugar are softly ground together above the couple to shower them in sweetness. And then the Honey Exchange, when the bride and groom dip their little fingers in honey and feed it to each other to symbolize starting the marriage with sweetness. Love it!

Such a gorgeous Texas Hill Country wedding!  We’re so excited to have it selected for feature publication on The Knot!  Maren & Derek met in Barcelona while working for the same modeling agency.  With Maren’s busy modeling career including features in Vogue and campaigns for Victoria Secret and Alexander Wang, we fast forward several years and now this NYC-based couple is celebrating their beautiful wedding in the gorgeous Texas Hill Country!   Maren’s beautiful dress by Monique Lhuillier was absolutely captivating, so we set aside a few minutes after the ceremony for an impromptu bridal session at dusk.  The magical Texas sky was just perfect with its softly lit hues.  Wonderful families and friends celebrated the night away under a classic starlit night, capped off with a sparkler and antique Jaguar departure.   Travel tip:  The next time you’re in Brooklyn, be sure to visit Derek’s restaurant The Heyward (you gotta love his groom’s cake featured below!).   Congratulations, Maren & Derek!
