Today’s dazzling Los Angeles wedding at Vibiana has it all! A striking venue, gorgeous fashion, important cultural traditions, an elegant color palette, and an incredibly handsome couple! Neda and Eidin’s wedding day was beautifully captured by Callaway Gable Photography, and we are so excited to share it with you!
The Goals: Above all else, Neida and Eidin wanted their guests to leave thinking they had been to the party of their lives! They chose L.A.’s unique and awe-inspiring Vibiana as their venue, and then they carefully selected party elements that would exceed expectations. Another priority was to pay homage to the cultural traditions of their families through Persian music, food, and customs.
The Design: The couple wanted an event that would bring to mind both Old Hollywood and modern design. Vibiana’s striking interior was the perfect backdrop for their glittering white wedding ceremony, and their black and white dream reception. The unique decor included a dramatic sofreh complete with black crystal mirror, baroque frame escort cards that also served as favors, and a sophisticated black and white wedding cake by The Cake Collection . Their contemporary centerpieces from florists Spring Flowers were sculpted topiaries of white blooms on black manzanita branches, which echoed the white manzanita trees that framed the ceremony area and sofreh.
The Look: Neda wanted a wedding dress that was also sexy, so her gorgeous fitted Kenneth Pool gown was an inspired choice. She accessorized with not one, but two pairs of Christian Louboutin wedding shoes to round out her “something new”! She borrowed antique diamond and pearl chandelier earrings from her mother, and wore her mother’s blue bracelet with a traditional evil eye to keep away bad spirits on this oh-so-important day. Neda kept things elegant and timeless for her bridal party with long black chiffon dresses with ivory sashes. The incredibly dashing Eidin wore a tuxedo by Yves Saint Laurent, and crazy-cool studded loafers from Christian Louboutin.
The Moments: The most memorable parts of the busy, joyful day where when everything else slipped away and Neda and Eidin found themselves focused on their love for each other. Neda said, “We were both so nervous to see each other for our first look, but the moment he turned around, we locked eyes and couldn’t look away”. Their first dance to Stevie Wonder’s “Overjoyed” was another incredibly romantic moment when everything else seemed to temporarily recede.
Neda wanted to infuse their ceremony with cultural wedding traditions and the upbeat Persian song that played while she literally danced down the aisle provided another wonderful memory. And they will always treasure the best man’s speech that brought the entire place to tears!
