At the time, Sanaz was living and studying in Toronto and Wael was doing the same in Ottawa. One night in Toronto, when Sanaz went to a concert with friends, she saw a man in line at the entrance that looked oddly familiar—Wael’s fraternal twin brother. Sanaz instantly recognized him and later that evening called her friend to follow up on his brother Wael. Turns out, Wael had moved back to Toronto for the remainder of his studies and was single. Within a week, her friend set them up on a semi-blind date and the rest is history. The Ceremony | The ornate Sovereign Ballroom at The Omni King Edward Hotel served as the ideal spot for Wael and Sanaz to host their tradi- tional Persian ceremony. Beauty and romance filled the room with lush blush flowers, white orchids and textured greenery from San Remo Florist along- side a gorgeous candlelit sofreh aghd. Soft jazz music played while guests took their seats and when Sanaz walked down the aisle, one of her favourite songs “Mia & Sebastian’s Theme” from the major motion picture La La Land played. The ceremony took place in both English and Arabic (with some Farsi) and was officiated by two of the bride and groom’s closest and oldest friends. flowers & decor : San Remo Florist Inc. | SanRemoFlorist.ca | venue & catering : The Omni King Edward Hotel | OmniHotels.com/Toronto ELEGANT EDDING.CA 51
