A Snowy Engagement Celebration
We met the lovely Samineh at a wedding we were photographing a few months back. She enjoyed being able to see us as work and seemlessly blend into the day to capture the essence of it all. To celebrate their engagement, Samineh and Reza hosted a lively engagement party for their closest friends and family.
While the guests were dancing up a storm inside the Vancouver Rowing Club, outside was being covered in beautiful blanket of fluffy snow. So pretty!
The Persian Knife Dance! This playful part of the evening was where Samineh and Reza tried to retrieve a cake knife from their guests so they could cut the cake. The dance started with one of their guests who danced to an upbeat Persian song with the knife as a show piece and money was then offered to try and get the knife. Once the dancer happily received the money, the cake knife was passed on to the next dancer to show off their dance moves. After some back and forth, more dancers and cheers from the entertained guests, Samineh and Reza finally were given the knife and were able to cut their gorgeous, chocolate covered cake.
Congratulations to Samineh and Reza on your engagement! It was a party to be remembered! 🙂
