San Fransicso couple, Leyla and JB headed to Southern California to say their ‘ I do’s, with 175 of their guests at attendance. They had a beautiful ceremony at the Peace Lake Fountain at Soka University, located in Aliso Viejo, California. As part of the Persian culture, they had a gorgeous Sofreh Aghd (a table with many symbloic and beautful items, set up at the ceremony). I love that Leyla and JB added some traditon to their wedding day. It is so special and meaningful! When the two of them sat at their ceremony, and shared their personal vows, I could not keep my eyes off of them! And those vows? Tissue please!! (actually several!). Yeah, those two should be perfessional vow writers or something. WOW!
Following the romantic and heartfelt ceremony, the guests headed to Founders Hall, to enjoy a lovely cocktail hour, while the couple snuck away to grab some photos with their family.
I didnt know how they could top that amazing wedding ceremony, but somehow, they did! If I could describe the wedding reception in one word? I would say PARTY! Yep, this wedding reception was in total party mode. From the live percussionist, energic MC and DJ, playing dance music, photo booth, the Habit Food truck (yes to burgers and fries please), a donut truck, (yes I said DONUT! YUM!), delicious Persian cuisine, dancing, (lots of dancing!), an epic rose petal toss, and then a ecofetti grand exit farewell, this wedding was (as they say), off the hook! Can you tell how excited I am? Besides all the fun details, there were some pretty amazing decor details that caught my attention. The gorgeous florals were out of this world. And then add those flowers to a romantic naked cake, and its perfect. I love me some cake, but this one I could not help but take a MILLION photos of it. It was a simple cake, but sometimes simple is better. This one for sure was!
I can go on and on about this wedding, but that may take several days. So I will just say it was truly a beautiful wedding day with one of the most sweetest and fun couples. What a joy!
Congrats to Leyla and JB!

Literally Amazing. Niloufar made our wedding everything we had ever dreamed of and most important, made it all happen stress free on our end. She is incredibly detailed orientated and insanely responsive to e-mails. There is no way our wedding would have turned out the way it did without her. From choosing your invitations to selecting your venue, Niloufar will be there helping you make even the smallest of decisions. She even showed up to my brides first wedding dress appointment to meet her and her family—you aren’t going to find anyone as amazing as Niloufar.
On the wedding day Niloufar also did an insanely amazing job. She shows up with her team of people, I’m still now sure if there were 2 or 20 of them, and makes everything seamless. I’m sure I didn’t see 99% of the things she did that day, but whenever she came up to us she was perfectly calm and reassuring. She made sure we were always where we needed to be, brought us out a plate of appetizers (and drinks!) during post-ceremony photos, and somehow was always there when we had a question or concern during the wedding. She’s crazy—the second we needed something I would turn around and she would magically appear and then handle the request with a smile on her face.
You NEED Niloufar. She is way too affordable. I am one of those people that likes to do a lot of research before making a decision (as you should, this is a big one), and most of the places I spoke to were at least double Niloufar’s price and did half the work. And, what you pay Niloufar you will save in dealing with vendors and time. You are essentially getting a free ridiculously amazing wedding planner by the time your wedding is over.
Even after the wedding we are still getting phone calls talking about how incredible our wedding planner was. You are going to have to make a lot of decisions in planning for your big day and this is the easiest one out of all of them. Hire Niloufar as your wedding planner.
