Rehearsal dinners are more than just an evening affair to “rehearse the wedding,” the night before your big day—it’s a wonderful occasion to meet members of the “other side of the family” or “ extended members of your new family” and bond with your loved ones in an intimate setting. It can be just as formal or informal as you like! Just remember to include everyone in your wedding party with their significant other and anyone who has traveled down specifically for your wedding as well as the officiant.

After meeting through mutual friends in 2014, Shiva and Jonathan later connected on Facebook when Jonathon messaged Shiva about the World Cup because he knew she liked soccer. “He came up with all these stats on players and I assumed that he knew a lot about soccer and that we had a lot in common,” recounts Shiva. “We decided to go out to a cafe in Montrose, just us two, and we hit it off from there.” Three years later Jonathon proposed to Shiva on the rooftop of Hotel ZaZa with the glittering lights of the downtown skyline as their backdrop.
Shiva and Jonathan pledged their love at The Houstonian Hotel, Club & Spa in a traditional Persian ceremony, accompanied by a beautiful Sofreh Aghd, in a timeless wedding palette of white and gold. The bride describes her Persian wedding as “glamorous and romantic.” The reception decor featured tall dramatic floral centerpieces, glittering chandeliers, and a custom monogrammed dance floor from LG Event Entertainment & Production. Guests enjoyed a delectable surf and turf reception meal, followed by an elegant four-tier white and gold squared wedding cake with raspberry filling from Susie’s Cakes. Cherished moments for the bride included the father-daughter dance, first look, and dancing with everyone! We are so excited to feature this gorgeous Houston couple and their romantic Persian wedding. Congratulations, Shiva and Jonathan!
