Kihana&Sepehr

San Francisco Design Center, San Francisco, California

We always love when two people from different backgrounds find one another, fall in love, and blend their unique cultural traditions on their wedding day.

Kihana is African-American, and Sepehr is Persian. They chose to honor Sepehr’s Persian heritage with a traditional ceremony using a sofreh – a platform decorated with symbolic items that represent a couple’s new life together, including fruits, sweets, breads, flowers, candles and a mirror. Then during the reception, you can see one of Kihana’s relatives dancing in a traditional African dress.

Kihana and Sepehr were married at the San Francisco Design Center, a modern, blank-slate venue that allowed them to make it their own. It was a glamorous, classic San Francisco wedding day full of beauty, emotion, laughs and love. We were so proud to be there to witness their first day as husband and wife.
