Armina and Ali fell madly in love, and then they hatched a plan: Elope in Hawaii, then throw a big, huge party in San Francisco. And that’s exactly what they did. To host their party, they rented out the Bently Reserve, decorated it to the nines, filled it with an unbelievable cornucopia of fruits, buffet dishes, desserts, big a** speakers, and a few hundred immaculately dressed revelers. Beheshteh Varasteh (varastehb[at]yahoo.com) served as the couple’s event designer and wedding planner. They invited me to document it all, and to create some iconic urban portraits around the Embarcadero and Financial District. The couple looked absolutely gorgeous, wouldn’t you agree? By bringing everyone together, they took the opportunity to share their Hawaiian wedding memories, and to express their gratitude to the community surrounding them. The Persian dance tunes were pumping, and the crowd packed the dance floor ALL night. Great success! p.s. Persian dance music rocks. I told them I was stealing their playlist.
