The Wellshire Event Center is located in Denver adjacent to a golf course. Catharina and Borna got married here mid-August of 2021 and with their marriage, merged two families, one of Mexican and the other of Iranian heritage. The ceremony was held in a light-filled room, and finished off with a traditional Persian chuppah ceremony surrounded by important talismans representing a blessed marriage. Loved ones offered their kind wishes by grinding salt on the chuppah held over the new couple, and the couple shared pinkies dipped in honey. My favorite part were the delicious sweets flown in directly from Iran that Borna’s mother was kind enough to share with me.
After the ceremony and some fun entries into the reception, Cathy’s sister gave a rousing toast and they danced into the night. At the end of the night, before the couple had their private dance, I briefly pulled them away from the reception for couple photos that took advantage of the stained glass that adorns the main event’s center building. Cathy’s dress was one of my favorites of the year, it moved effortlessly with her and gave off an elegance that was pure modern princess, and she looked amazing in it!
