Boston Persian wedding photographer, Nicole Chan, will preserve memories of your skhastegari, ballet born, sofreyeh aghd, and colorful dance party!
The Commons 1854 is a beautiful place for a wedding.
Even more so when the couple getting married is as sweet as Marjan and Roy. Ever since meeting in grad school at BU, these two have been attached at the hip. They conquer every day as a team, united in their love for each other. When asked why she loves Roy, Marjan says that he is everything that she never knew she wanted. Sweet, supportive, and dedicated to their relationship. These qualities all showed during their wedding day and it was a joy to watch them interact.
Like all relationships, Marjan and Roy have their tough days.
What sets them apart is how they handle those tough days. They both are incredibly supportive and go out of their way to help each other every day. Roy says that even when they are both rushing out the door, Marjan never fails to make sure he has everything he needs for the day. “It’s wonderful knowing she is there to be my partner and go the extra mile for me.” After five years together, they are still quick to laugh. Taking themselves seriously has never been part of their personalities, so their days are filled with goofy jokes. Whether they are shredding the slopes or enjoying breakfast in bed, these two are happiest when they are together.
Marjan and Roy’s wedding day ended with amazing dancing.
Their ceremony was so beautiful. The table they sat at was ornately decorated with honey, spices, sweets, and many other traditional Persian wedding items. The weather was perfect, the guests were gushing with joy, and Marjan and Roy were so adorably excited all day. Being able to be a part of weddings like these is a special privilege. Standing next to Marjan and Roy as they declared their love for each other was a beautiful moment and I am so happy to have been a part of this day. I wish them all the best in their future adventures together!

Sara and Farid had a traditional Persian wedding at Brown University’s Faculty club in Providence, Rhode Island. My favorite part of their wedding was their beautiful Sofreye Aghd, the wedding spread during the ceremony. On this ankle-height table, were herbs, pastries, mirror of fate, candelabras, the blessed bread, symbols of fertility (decorated walnuts), the heavenly fruit basket made by Sara’s family (strawberries, apples, etc.), Shakh-e-Nabat (a bowl made out of rock candy), a cup of honey, a prayer rug and of course, the Sacred Text. I loved all of the small candles that lit up the room. It made for beautiful light during the ceremony, which happened as the sun went down.
Interviews are usually very professional matters, or at least I imagine so for a grown-up serious industry concentration like internal medicine. For Paras and Andy, the two-day interview was the platform where they knew they were supposed to talk to everyone, but ended up only talking to each other. With some savvy techie work, Andy found her e-mail stuck up conversation about her name and connected over his familarity with Iranian culture. Andy’s two closest friends are Iranian. He even participated in an Iranian dance group! Though Paras first mentioned that he’s a bit shy dancing in front of her, I heard that they had considered dancing together at their wedding and I crossed my fingers for almost the entire week, hoping that it would happen – because it was something I really really really wanted to see! 🙂
Paras and Andy’s wedding reflected them perfectly. It was filled with energetic dancing, lots of laughter, big beaming smiles, and some incredibly heartfelt speeches from their dads.
