Angela + Farhad’s wedding was at Sanborn park in Saratoga. Their wedding was really sweet, and everyone was so loving. I am grateful to our mutal friend Lauren, who referred me. One of my favorite moments was when Angela surprised Farhad with a pocket watch with a photo of his mother inside. To help Farhad remember and feel that his mother was close on their wedding day. My other favorite moment was when Farhad surprised Angela by performing the song he wrote to prepose to her. They met at UC Berkeley, and the story goes that she was won over by his stellar lead drumming skills. However, the truth is she fell for him because of his humility, light-hearted nature & self-assuredness.
Their wedding was very unique & DIY. The color scheme was rainbow. The inspiration came from a trip they took to Nepal and India. To Angela the vibrant colors conveys joy and celebration. They had a Persian ceremony. And the backdrop was made from recycled Indian sari, and the pennants strung over the reception area is made from handmade Indonesian batik.
They made each other’s ring at Fitzgerland Jewelry Studio in NY when Angela was in grad school at Columbia. They turned out beautiful! The same day they made their rings they saw the old western swing band, they hired for their wedding called Brian Cloud Western Swing.
