And they danced happily ever after.
Sara and Paco had a ceremony full of traditions from both sides – persian/iranian and mexican – like a beautifull decorated Sofreh-ye-Aghd, the Kalleh Ghand*, the honey test or the Entrega de las arras* – but also, they had a weding full of dancing and joy making both families sharing Sara and Paco’s love with infinite rythms. They provided us with a nice & eclectic world music selection.

* The Kalleh Ghand
Two sugar cones made out of hardened sugar to be used during the ceremony. These sugar cones are grinded together above the bride and bridegroom’s head (over the scarf held above their heads) throughout the ceremony to shower them in sugar (symbolizing sweetness and happiness).
* The Arras (mexican tradition)
The groom gives the bride thirteen gold coins as a symbol of his unquestionable trust and confidence. He pledges that he places all of his goods into her care and safekeeping. Acceptance by the bride means taking that trust and confidence unconditionally with total dedication and prudence.
