Fairmont Pacific Rim Persian Wedding – Vancouver

Fairmont Pacific Rim Persian Wedding with Alnaz and Hossein.  Everyone in the wedding industry was so excited when the new Fairmont Pacific Rim opened its doors just before the 2010 Winter Olympics took place here in Vancouver. There’s only a handful of really swanky hotels in the downtown core and when a new venue opens up, it’s like a breath of fresh air! The Fairmont is a wonderfully contemporary hotel, focused on the rustic beauty of BC, interlaced with some of the most expensive, not to mention beautiful and interesting marble I’ve ever seen. One of their ballrooms is floor to ceiling windows and is such a great place to shoot as the late summer sun keeps the room bright and light. You can also check out their wedding featured on Wedluxe.com.


Persian weddings are one of our favourites for the pure fact that they love beautiful details. Everything, from their gown, attire, jewels and the intricate pieces which adorn the wedding Sofreh. Each piece of the Sofreh has a different blessing for the couple in their new life together. Often times, the pieces and food comes straight from the homeland for true authenticity.


After the traditional ceremony, we headed out around the hotel and in the Presidential Suite for the formals and couple time for the evening.


I must say, I don’t think I’ve seen a more unique decor feature, Alnaz had crystals placed in the overhead pot-lights and they just lit the place up, genius!!! I always say, adding accent lights and coloured lights just give the room so much more sparkle.


Persians know how to celebrate and I LOVE that everyone participates, EVERYONE dances! A great addition to the night was a special performance by a very talented belly dancer. Not to mention the food was AMAZING!


Congratulations to Alnaz and Hossein and we wish you much happiness and joy in your new life together!!
