This stunning Tuscan inspired wedding from yesterday is all kinds of beautiful! I loved working with this amazing couple and what I loved even more was all the love that surrounded them on their big day. Their big beautiful families surrounded them, and made up their bridal party and it just all felt really intimate.
Medina and Arash meet in college, in an 8am class, which just blew my mind. Number 1, who signs up for an 8 am class? And number 2, who goes? But these two noticed each other. They had a mutual friend who invited them both to a party, and as the saying goes, the rest was history.
The inspiration behind this wedding and venue was their engagement trip. They went to Italy where Arash proposed in the small beach town of Vernazza. The spot near the beach was crowded, so Arash found these stone stairs, followed them up to a balcony next to a church. The Church was right up against the water with a little bench. It was all super private, with no one there. Medina was looking out at the ocean, turned around and he was on a knee proposing. I mean could all have been more picture perfect? I can see it all so clearly in my mind.
I think with every couple you pick up something new and different trait about them, and I think the words that come to mind with this couple are inspiration and aspiration. Inspiration to those around them, and aspiration to always be better, always do more. And they both have these qualities which make them a real balance. There is a deep well of support for each other, and I can't wait to see what life they build on that foundation.
Congratulations you two! I hope you enjoy these sneak peaks, and I can't wait to hear all about the honeymoon!
