The couple wanted their wedding to be as meaningful as possible, so they had friends provide many of the wedding services and kept the event to just 30 guests.
Maria & Yousef: Ultra-glam Wedding Day at Villa St. Clair
Wedding: September 23, 2017
Ceremony & reception: Villa St. Clair
Honeymoon: Iran, Italy and Greece
Maria Aguirre and Yousef Mollazadeh met at work in 2009 and enjoyed learning about each other’s cultures—she’s from Mexico and he’s from Iran. After a year of being friends, he asked her out on an official first date. He proposed seven years later on a trip to New York City, and the two envisioned an elegant, glamorous wedding blending their respective cultures through music and tradition. They went for a clean, chic look using purple with gold accents. The first dance was to “Everything I Do” by Bryan Adams, and they also incorporated a Farsi song and a Spanish song into the dance. Though they’d practiced it only once, the dance went smoothly as the couple celebrated in joy.
