HOW THEY MET
‘We met at a dinner party in Los Angeles. Michael proposed to me just the way I wanted, at my parents’ house with everyone there!’
THINGS WE DID OURSELVES
‘We made our gift box, we bought a white vintage-looking chest and decorated it with flowers.’
DRESSES AND SUITS
Jasmine had two dresses, both Monique Lhuilliers. She had 9 bridesmaids and she asked them to wear whatever they wanted as long as it was long and vibrant colors. Dresses were Monique Lhuilliers, Oscar De La Rentas, and one Elie Saab.
HAIR AND MAKEUP
Jasmine entrusted celebrity stylist and close friend Jorge Serrano with her hair while her makeup was done by Roman MUA Stefano Comelli.
Persian all the way. Officiating their marriage was Michael’s father’s childhood friend and law scholar Dr. Said Mahmoudi. ‘We are both lawyers so we were grateful to have our wedding ceremony officiated by such a renowned attorney and close family friend.
Jasmine and Michael took off for Lake Garda after the wedding.
What is it that makes your wedding unique?
– We decided on a destination wedding in Italy without really having any contacts there. We both knew that a traditional ballroom wedding was not for us and Italy, with its beautiful villas and warm people stole our hearts. Amazing thing was we managed to bring 150 of our friends and families there.
– We had a 3 day affair, the first night was in a modern, secret club location in the centre of Rome, the Neoclassical wedding villa itself was in a panoramic position overlooking Rome and the final night we transformed a typical Roman trattoria into an amazing dinner and dance party! We loved the mix of styles, from sleek, to Italian opulance, then traditional!
