We wanted our very first real wedding for our blog to be a very special one. We couldn’t ask for a better wedding to feature then this! Parmis & Kevin got married this summer at their gorgeous house in Loomis that overlooks the north end of Folsom Lake. The couple was engaged for 2 years while they built their dream house from the ground up. They were married on the couples 6 year anniversary of being together in the backyard of the home. The wedding was filled with American traditions mixed with Persian traditions and also incorporated both the bride and grooms personality and style. When it came to transforming their backyard from ordinary to extraordinary they hired Fearon May Events to help them create their dream design. The design included a Plexiglass dance floor over their infinity pool, a tent made out of white draping and market lights, a ton of candles and lots of white orchids. This was such an amazing wedding and we hope you get lots of ideas and inspiration from their pictures. They were captured by Sam from Sharpe Photographers. Enjoy!
“The trick to the wedding was taking the lavish ceremony site set for 150 guests and turning it into the reception room within an hour, while guests mingled in the house. It was tricky, but with a great team we were able to accomplish it and seeing the guests face when they walked down the stairs was priceless. They couldn’t believe that it was the same space. We planned it so they would walk down right at sunset which really created different lighting and a sense of a new reception space.”
Explains Fearon from Fearon May Events.
Because the couple is not big on cake, they decided to replace the cake with something they do love…CHEESE! If you look closely, the cake is made out of giant wheels of cheese cascading with white orchids and displayed like a wedding cake. They cut into blue cheese, the couples favorite and fed each other a slice. The cake was then cut up and served with crackers and bread as a late night snack. Little boxes that said “Eat, Drink and Be Married” were provided for the guests to take some cheese and dessert home with them.
