The coolest part to me was their “engagement session” – what we did was substitute their typical engagement session for a Persian wedding, called a Sofreh, that they did as a pre-ceremony to their actual ceremony. What this involves is a setting of Flowers, Eggs, Esfand, Cookies, Candles, Bread and Cheese, Honey and Sweet, etc. (it’s a very large setting that actually took up Minas parents entire living room). Mina and Jeremy huddled under a fabric held by family and were sprinkled with sugar.. they recited vows and became married by the Persian culture. As a wedding photographer, it’s very neat to see all of the customs of other cultures – the celebration of wedding is a beautiful thing. Our friends Kifle and Freweini also had a beautiful cultural wedding that you canView Here
And the funniest part was the cake Mina gave Jeremy – a UofK blue and white covered red velvet cake.
