What a gorgeous summer day it turned out to be for Atee and Pendar’s super cute vintage-themed Persian wedding (interesting combination, we know). Both Atee and Pendar have a background in graphic design, and so we knew that the wedding would be infused with many artistic elements (you can see some of Pendar’s creative talents here: www.mahimoto.com). We had our fingers crossed for clear skies so that we could take photographs of Atee and Pendar on their cherry red Vespa, which they use to scoot around Toronto together…adorable! It also acted as the inspiration for their invitations, which were designed by Pendar. Lucky for us the weather held out, and we were able to photograph the couple driving their scooter at The Evergreen Brickworks. Atee’s dress was simply stunning, and we loved, loved, loved the fascinator she chose to go with her birdcage veil. Pendar was also stylin’ with his cute polka dot socks that matched the colour scheme of their wedding (which Atee picked out for him and he gallantly agreed to wear) – we couldn’t let the day pass without a photograph of them. Their Persian ceremony was held at the Toronto Board of Trade, where their reception followed shortly after. A vintage corner was set up with some nostalgic paraphernalia where guests could type the newlyweds a message on an old typewriter… and there were some interesting messages! Once Atee and Pendar made their entrance into the reception room they had a slow and charming first dance, which was immediately followed by dance floor pandemonium! Just about everyone was on the dance floor and the party was in full swing before dinner was even served.
Congrats Atee and Pendar. The love and laughs you shared together was contagious and it was a pleasure to capture that magic through the lens.
