Real Wedding: Paree and Robert


On Thanksgiving weekend at the San Diego Four Points by Sheraton, Paree and Robert announced their “I do’s”. Decked in beautiful orange, brown, green and hints of red, Paree and Robert celebrated their marriage with their family and friends. To cater to guests, the wedding infused elements of Afghani, Middle Eastern and American culture.

Paree and Robert met mutually through friends where they were set up on a blind date. Soon after their initial meeting at Starbucks, everything fell into place. Finally, on a rainy Superbowl Sunday, Robert took Paree to the Cabrillo Lighthouse in Point Loma. After a walk in the rain, Robert proposed to Paree.

Henna, a plant that is used for dying a variety of materials, is used in modern traditional Afghan weddings. Proceeded by the mother of the groom, the henna is placed on the bride’s palm and covered by a fine, triangular cloth. In return, the henna is placed on the groom’s pinky finger by the bride’s mother and also covered in cloth. This tradition symbolizes the union of two.

See the resemblance? Paree’s bridesmaids were her sisters!
