As most couples know, true love is hard to find so when you find your soulmate even at a young age, you want to hold on to them forever. Neana and Ali are a pair of high school sweethearts who dated long distance (east coast/west coast) while Ali went to medical school and afterwards, began living in a brand new city as a couple. So, when Ali proposed, this west coast couple had an east coast wedding in the place they now call home, New York City. Neana looked simply radiant in her ivory lace wedding gown by Monique Lhuillier and we all drooled over her pearl and bow heels by Chanel. Their wedding day called for rain so we decided to take their bride and groom portraits inside Grand Central Station.
The beauty of the city really shines through this renovated masterpiece, which happens to be one of Neana's favorite places in all of Manhattan. When we reached the Central Park Conservatory Gardens, the rain stopped and we were able to roam around the garden for some more photos. The happy couple were married underneath the ivy covered pergola in middle of the Conservatory Gardens. Their Persian wedding ceremony was filled with so many wonderful traditions that I had never captured before. Towards the end of the ceremony, the couple is presented a bowl of honey and asked to each dip their pinky into the bowl and feed it to one another. Honey represents the sweetness of life and by doing this, it will bless them to have a happy honeymoon and therefore a sweet marriage. So romantic! After they exchanged their vows, the couple decided to celebrate their marriage with a small intimate reception at Daniel. Treating their family and friends to a decadent feast they will remember for years to come. Neana and Ali are just the sweetest, most thoughtful and one of the most wonderful couples I've ever had the pleasure of getting to know. Their wedding was so meaningful, elegant and completely stylish. xo
