Neda + Reza
Neda and Reza got to know one another in a college biology course in San Antonio. “Since then,” the bride recounts, “the relationship has grown from friends, to best friends, to a love that has beautifully flourished.” When Neda was accepted into medical school in Philadelphia, the couple knew they were going to do everything they could to make their relationship work, even if that meant tackling four years of long distance. With modern technology (“Skype was a lifesaver!”) and their unfaltering devotion to each, the pair made it to the altar for the wedding of their dreams at lovely Chateau Cocomar. Neda walked down the aisle in a stunning Winnie Couture gown, amidst lavish ivory and blush blooms, to wed her husband in a traditional Persian ceremony. At the couple’s reception, table numbers rested upon succulents hand-picked from Neda’s mother’s prize garden, and guests indulged in Persian sweets from a dessert table created by the bride’s father.
