Mahsh & Wander’s winter wedding was a modern and sophisticated fusion celebration in the heart of downtown Dallas. Guests received their first peek of the elegant wedding to come with the custom designed midnight blue and ivory invitation with gold sparkly accents by Significantly Said: Invitations by Significant Events. Mahsh wore a stunningly regal ball gown and carried a lovely bouquet in shades of white and blush with cascading orchids. Wander looked equally stylish in his custom midnight blue tux. Bridesmaids wore various styles of midnight blue dresses and carried similar bouquets to Mahsh’s which were so pretty. The ceremony room was decorated in champagne and ivory draping and a gold bejeweled stage skirt beneath the elaborate and ornately beautiful Sofreh Aghd for the Persian ceremony, a nod to Mahsh’s culture. After the traditional Persian elements of the ceremony, Mahsh & Wander exchanged vows and rings in a more Western style of ceremony. Following ceremony, guests proceeded to the foyer for cocktail hour decorated with gold accents and white tufted bar facades. Next, guests proceeded up to the ballroom on the top floor of the hotel with crystal chandeliered ceilings and wall-to-wall windows with views. Mahsh chose three different linens in mixed patterns of taupes, silvers, and golds. The head table was particularly stunning including a midnight blue lamour linen and custom made gold sparkle overlay. Floral was of varying sizes in shades of blush and ivory with gold and crystal detailing. A custom white and gold dance floor formed the centerpiece of the room. A delicious multi-course plated meal was served for dinner. Mahsh’s wedding cake was unique and beautiful with floral rosettes with gold edging and blue and white tiers. Wander’s cake featured sculptured elements of his Dominican background and profession as a salsa dancer. A bevy of Persian desserts was also offered for our guests. The dance floor was a blast with both a bilingual Spanish speaking DJ spinning Western songs and Latin music and a Persian DJ spinning South Asian beats. Such a fun evening joining two cultures in love and celebration!
