Niloofar and Elyad’s journey began in 2017, orchestrated by the hands of fate through mutual friends. What started as a casual acquaintance swiftly blossomed into a deep and meaningful friendship. Their first date, set in the cozy ambiance of a Midtown cafe, laid the foundation for the enduring bond. While on their date, they delved into shared interests, from their favorite TV shows to their mutual appreciation for Persian culture. From that moment on, they became inseparable.

In August 2021, Elyad orchestrated a picturesque proposal against the breathtaking backdrop of South Lake Tahoe. Understanding Niloofar’s love for capturing the beauty of sunsets, Elyad led her toward the beach under the guise of a spontaneous picture. As the sun dipped below the horizon, Elyad dropped to one knee and asked Niloofar to marry him.

On May 6, 2023, Niloofar and Elyad exchanged vows in a traditional Persian ceremony at the exquisite Sans Souci Ballroom. Prior to the ceremony, the couple shared special first-look moments with their loved ones, each filled with emotion and anticipation. Niloofar’s mother meticulously crafted the Sofreh, infusing it with pieces from Iran passed down by her grandmother. “Each item carried with it a piece of our heritage, weaving a tapestry of memories that will forever be cherished,” the bride says.

The couple’s wedding reception exuded elegance and sophistication, with black and white decor, floating candles and lush floral arrangements adorning the venue. Against the backdrop of laughter and music, Niloofar and Elyad danced the night away, surrounded by their cherished friends and family. A special moment from the evening was the couple’s private last dance, shared with Niloofar’s grandmother. “It was a poignant and intimate moment, one where time seemed still as we danced in the glow of her affectionate gaze,” the bride says.
