Here at Wedding Elegance By Nahid, we love to help our couples infuse blended cultures into their wedding day. We have a decade of experience in ensuring that traditions are respected and incorporated into one wedding that will be memorable to our couples, their families, and their guest. This was the case with Aparna and Shalindra’s wedding which took place at the luxury resort, St. Regis Monarch Beach in Dana Point. The wedding to place over multiple days and included a Sangeet, a Catholic Ceremony, a Muslim Ceremony complete with a Barat. The groom arrived in a sporty red convertible! The photos by Lin and Jirsa show every detail to perfection. When it came to decor, our creative partner Shawna Yamamoto Floral Design, outdid herself. The reception decor included arches on long family seating tables that took everyone’s breath away. This wedding set new trends that we’re sure will be copied! We hope the images will inspire you to call us when you want seamless planning, magnificent decor, and respect for your cultures.

Next month I have the incredible honor of speaking at The South Asian Shaadi Summit, hosted by Electric Karma. This conference is an absolute must for wedding professionals wanting to be versed in Multi-Cultural Weddings. The conference takes place from November 8th to November 11th, in Sugar Land, Texas.
This four day conference will teach you everything you ever wanted to know, and what you didn’t realize you needed to know about this ever growing segment of the nationwide wedding market. I’ll be speaking about the complexities of Persian Weddings. I’ve overseen the design and coordination of countless Persian Weddings in my career, and I’m excited to share my knowledge and expertise with you and all of the attendees. The entire conference is actually an event. With interactive learning, you’ll walk away with the confidence to properly represent clients who are Persian, Indian, Muslim, and more.

It’s with such great pleasure that I share the wedding video of Adam and Nouran with you, courtesy of Fiske Film. This wedding was filled with spirituality, beauty and love from everyone present. I can’t begin to explain the feeling of love that emanated from this union. I had the pleasure of designing the event. My favorite part was designing the Persian Sofreh Aghd. Every vendor who took part in this event worked so hard to bring the couple’s vision to life, and the video shows that. The two cultures of Arabic and Persian came together beautifully. It’s probably the favorite aspect of my job, to make sure that happens. My expertise in blending culture and tradition is a true blessing to me. It’s becoming a universal world, and I’m so lucky to be part of helping couples honor their cultures, and having the wedding day they’ve always dreamed of. I hope you enjoy this video as much as we do! Congratulations on your beautiful marriage Nouran and Adam!
The video shows how a seasoned team of professionals come together to create something very special. They are:

One of my biggest accomplishments besides helping couples plan their wedding day, is to serve on the Board of Directors of WIPA – Wedding Industry Professionals Association. It’s an organization that I can truly stand behind. The mission of this organization is to bring excellence to the wedding industry. Earlier this year the Southern California Chapter held it’s annual design challenge at The Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel. This event brings out the best designers who bring their “A” game in designing tables based on a theme.
This year I decided to take part in the challenge. The overall theme was “Somewhere In Time”, and transported guests to a historical time and place in history. My theme was The Roaring 20’s. Influences that inspired me included art deco architecture, feathers, pearls and bold colors, like black and white. I couldn’t have asked for a better team of professionals that worked together to bring my design to life.
There were so many beautiful details that made this table look and feel luxurious and polished. From the sequin linen, to the candelabras, beautiful graphic menus and more, it certainly felt like a table at a speakeasy in Chicago circa 1920! Thank you to the creative partners who went the extra mile for me:
