Megan Baqeezada and Aryan Davachi met on Santana Row in San Jose, California. Their first date lasted eight hours and included dinner, great conversation and laughter, and it felt as if they had known each other for years. “Megan was a sweet-hearted angel that walked into my life and stole my heart away,” says Aryan.

One spring day, back on Santana Row, Aryan proposed at a private Tuscan terrace on the rooftop of Hotel Valencia. A table was topped with red roses, and the sun was shining down on the golden Silicon Valley mountaintops.

The wedding planning process was challenging, yet exciting. Megan and Aryan decided to have their wedding in San Francisco, and the Four Seasons Hotel would play host for them and their guests. It was Megan who took it upon herself to design and source the right vendors for the wedding, and she knew exactly what type of décor and ambiance she wanted. Inspired by elegance, glamour, and timelessness, the couple opted for an all-white color palette with touches of gold. 

On the day before the wedding, the future bride and groom treated themselves to a day of relaxation so they could really take in and enjoy their experience at the Four Seasons Hotel San Francisco. They spent time at the spa, as well as with their closest friends and family, which was the perfect way to decompress before the nuptials.

Their wedding day was met with sunny San Francisco weather. Aryan spent his morning playing basketball and Megan went for a walk before getting ready in the presidential suite with her makeup artist and photographer. Prior to the ceremony, they had their first look photo session, which was a beautiful moment for the pair. “When I saw Megan for our first look, I was not only speechless, but she took my breath away,” the groom says. “She was the most beautiful woman I had ever seen. I would love to relive that moment in time with her.”

The bride and groom had a chic, modern Persian ceremony with mirrored décor, which made everything reflect beautifully. An array of Persian items on display represented different symbols of love, life and prosperity. “We wanted our guests to feel like royalty, celebrities and VIP guests,” the bride describes. In order to create that special ambiance, a red carpet was rolled out for guests to walk down during the cocktail hour. A customized step-and-repeat was also hung, so guests could have their pictures taken on the red carpet to commemorate the occasion.

Personalized messages were featured on large mirrors, along with mirrored picture frames, mirrored tabletops glowing with candles, white roses, and white orchids. Loved ones who weren’t able to celebrate with them were honored with a family tree table, in order to show that they were there spiritually. The entire display was stunning and melted everyone’s hearts.

The bride and groom’s guests raved about how it was one of the best weddings they had ever been to, which was a wonderful feeling for the newlyweds–especially after a year of hard work and planning. “It truly was a powerful and captivating day for Megan and me,” Aryan says. “Everyone, including us, was speechless on how everything turned out.”
