What do you get when you combine a Persian groom and a Southern bride? A whole lot of people who know how to boggy, and one classy affair!
We knew when we met Rachael that her attention to detail and organizational skills would make us the perfect Asheville wedding planners for her! If there is one thing we love it’s a good spreadsheet (or five, or six). A lot of brides come to us with no idea of where to start or how they envision their day, and that’s ok! I mean, that is what we are here for. But when a bride comes to us with and knows what she wants and how she wants it, it is our pleasure to roll up our sleeves and get to work to make that plan a reality!
Rachael and Sal were married at the Grove Park Inn on an absolutely crystal clear day in November. The ceremony was a perfect marriage (waaaaah waaaaaah, you can only use that pun once!) between a traditional Persian ceremony and a traditional Christian ceremony. The grooms mother Mrs. Tadjalli provided all of the items for the Persian wedding spread, it was an absolutely stunning array. And all of those beautiful sweets and pastries? She made them herself!
This wedding was all about classic and romantic. The color palate was based on neutral whites, creams and gold, with pops of deep red. The flowers by Studio Flora Diva were wonderfully elegant.
Our favorite moments (there were so many!):
Rachael’s something blue, aren’t these shoes so much fun!?
In the theme of shoes – Rachael and Sal gifted their wedding party with his and hers matching Nike’s! You better bet these came out later in the night when the dance floor was hoppin’
Rachael’s ceremony entrance – Rachael entered the ceremony down the steps of the Grove Park Inn’s Sunset Terrace, as she made her way across the hotel to the Mountain View Terrace where the ceremony was held, all of the guests stood for her. It was such a moving moment (we all teared up!) – Hat’s off too the guests at the Grove Park Inn, your momma’s certainly raised you right!
The father daughter dance – Mr. Seneker is a graduate from the University of Tennessee, Rachael and all of their fellow Volunteers surprised him with a rousing rendition of “Rocky-Top” at the end of the dance.
It was a beautiful wedding and one that Verge Events was proud to be a part of!
