Kohl Mansion Wedding D + A

This was probably one of my favorite weddings that I have ever done. Not only was the bride and groom absolutely adorable, but they were open to extravagance! This wedding had over 300 guests and when I say a Persian wedding, I mean a true PERSIAN wedding! Bright color palates, lots of attention to detail, tasty ethnic food, great music, and a whole lot of fun.
The wedding took place at the Kohl Mansion in Burlingame, Ca. In the early 1900's, 40 acres of Burlingame's woodlands were transformed into this rare brick estate. With its exquisite gardens and ponds, it has been the host of countless social gatherings since 1914!

Please enjoy the wedding of Delbar and Arash on 8.8.8, a very popular date that year!

I pulled a lot of my favorite vendors together to help bring this wedding together.  
The rentals were from Classic Party Rentals.

Floral was from Camilla Svensson Burns.  Camilla's talent and creativity can inspire anyone.  Always thinking outside of the box, each and every one of her designs, are unique and blow the clients away with her visions.  She recently just did a wedding for David Tutera!

The confections were created by Elegant Cheese Cakes, in Half Moon Bay, Ca. The layers of the cake were made up of pistachio butter cake with fresh strawberries, champagne butter cake with fresh raspberries in chantilly cream, and chocolate decadence with chocolate raspberry ganache. YUMMY!

Cheesecake 'Love Bites' with Heath Crunch on a Chocolate crust were adorned with 8.8.8, representing their very special and unique day.

Catering was done by a local Persian catering company.

The menu consisted of:

Beef and chicken kabobs
Ghormeh Sabzi
Ghaimeh Bademjan
Saffron rice
Javaher polo
Lavash and Pita Bread
Fresh Persian herbs, feta cheese, and walnuts

Their DJ for the evening was DJ Teymour. The dance floor was the place to be once the sun set. People could not get enough of his current top hits and new age music. There was a definite presence on the dance floor that you could not dance past!

Lighting was courtesy of Bella Vista Designs. Owner, Trevor Zellet, not only lit the place from top to bottom, but he was responsible for the massive structure that was designed to shade the hundreds of guests from the sun.

Videography was the very talented Anton Lorimer with Lorimerworks Productions.  Here is the video for you to check out.  He did a fabulous job!

Jose Villa Photography graced us with his presence. He never seizes to amaze me. He is a brilliant photographer. Thank you Jose!
