last, but certainly not least, on our trip out to portland was the wedding of our sweet friends brian and nicki. it really is so wonderful to see two kind-hearted people embark on this chapter in their lives together. plus, i just love seeing two cultures coming together - in this case, persian and american. nicki was sweet enough to explain all of the persian customs and imagery involved in advance so we could follow along during the ceremony. 

[adding sweetness to their marriage (jana and i got to partake in this as well!)]

after feeding each other sweets, the presentation of gifts by their families, and the kiss, they were pronounced husband and wife! it was such a beautiful moment and i'm so happy we were there to witness it...well, T was performing groomsman duties with michael, but you get what i mean :)

once the entire bridal party made their entrance, it was time for the newlywed's first persian music, of course. their moves, their smiles, and the music were amazing.

the rest of the evening was filled with loads more dancing, food, cheering, a knife dance (yes, you heard me right), far too many goofy photo booth pictures, and a confetti-filled farewell to the happy couple. we couldn't be happier for you both, and are so happy we got to be a part of y'all's special day!
