With Gabriel always finding a way to make her laugh, Jessica naturally fell head over heels. Twelve years later, he still makes her laugh. The couple celebrated their nuptials on June 24, 2017. The Ceremony | To reflect the beauty of nature, Jessica and Gabriel decided to have a beautiful summer garden- inspired ceremony held under a white gazebo lined with flowers. Half of the outdoor ceremony was performed in French and the other half with traditional Persian customs such as the grinding of sugar cones and a mini sofreh aghd filled with little treasures symbolizing prosperity, fertility and everlasting love. Gabriel’s uncle officiated; Jessica’s aunt read a poem written especially for the occasion; and the couple’s adorable dog acted as the ring bearer. The Decor| Keeping with the natural beauty of the venue, Jessica opted for greenery garlands and bouquets featuring silver dollar eucalyptus for her and her bridesmaids. Inside the reception, chalkboard signage was paired with a gold frame seating chart and mixed green centrepieces in glass bottles. To honour the couple’s 11 years spent together, tables were named after each year of their relationship. Andrew Monia Photografikart captured the entire day seamlessly.
