Event Design: Persian Afghan Wedding | Fairmont Hotel, San Francisco

We are so excited to see Soraia and Ali's wedding featured on the Grace Ormonde Wedding Style Blog! Check out the feature to learn all about the bride and groom and the whole wedding process.

When I met Soraia the first few times I knew immediately we had a lot of things in common - our love to keep things classy, our love for family, and our love for Tory Burch! It was such a pleasure to work with this lovely couple. Soraia and Ali both cared about their families very much so it was important to honor both of their cultures - Persian and Afghan. The wedding took place at the beautiful Fairmont Hotel in San Francisco. The venue had a classic elegance to it that we knew we wanted to continue throughout the wedding decor. 

The Sofreh ceremony took place under a gorgeous chandelier. We lined the aisle with high and low pillar candles making a beautiful walk way for the bride and groom. All the beautiful and intricate Sofreh items were provided by Pretty Please Design and our team helped style the spread.

Since the ballroom for the reception was so elegant and ornate we went with a more simplistic approach to the decor. The tables were covered in a soft blush linen and we had hydrangeas and blush colored roses for the centerpieces. The sweetheart table was on a large stage to accommodate for the afghan traditions that would take place behind the bride and groom. We re-purposed the high and low candles from the ceremony and placed them in front of the sweetheart table which created a beautiful illumination. We also dressed up the table linen by draping it with curly willow ties adding a romantic element. The bride and groom sat on a white leather tufted love seat. Soraia and Ali, we wish you a lifetime of happiness together and we hope to be a part of more of your celebrations in the future!

  1. Having just got married last week, I was eager to tell everyone about this place. We had the perfect wedding, thanks to their amazing service. Most places don’t care and charge you for a lot of the things that guys at Malibu wedding venue were willing to help us out with.

  2. So chic wedding ceremony! I loved everything golden in this wedding. This wedding was filled with so much glamour. Thanks a ton for the photos. The venue is also very pretty. I would love to book such stunning party venue rentals for my engagement.
