Marriage is a blending of not only the couple but their families and cultures and some of the most lovely ceremonies are those incorporating various traditions. Lia and Reza’s wedding did just this, weaving the groom’s Persian heritage with touches of the bride’s Chinese background. The result was absolutely one-of-a-kind and magical.

Although the day before had been sunny and hot, the rains started at noon on the wedding day and didn’t let up. Being August, we’d planned for the possibility of the wet stuff and moved the ceremony to the covered restaurant area at the Reserva Conchal Beach Club where the reception was to be held.
