For this collection Sareh pulled elements and inspiration from her Persian heritage. A history rich in art that is defined by detailed designs and patterns visualized in its mosaics, calligraphy, miniature paintings and intricate weaving. “The fabrics, laces and patterns that I selected and designed for this collection are reminiscent of an ancient, yet modern artistic culture” said Sareh Nouri. From the layering of sophisticated laces to the long dramatic trains, each dress in the collection lends itself to detail, intricacy and romance with the use of long lace sleeves, dramatically detailed backs and elegant embellishments. The collection stays true to its mission of light-weight and ultra-luxurious gowns, each with impeccable structure and fit with a built-in bustier, entirely hand-sewn in the U.S.A. Sareh Nouri’s exquisite Fall 2016 collection captures the essence of chic luxury inspired by traditional design, directly reflecting the designer herself and her Persian heritage, further setting her apart as a leader in the fashion industry.
We have a very elegant Washington DC wedding to share today, perfectly captured by Emily Clack Photography. There are so many beautiful details and ideas at this one. The little vow books are adorable, the lace detail on the bride’s dress is amazing and the “Love” sign looks like fun! There is just so much loveliness going on here!
“We met by joining the same kickball team in DC. My friend, Alan (who was also our officiant) and Shane’s friend Tom (one of his groomsmen) worked together. Tom recruited Alan and Shane to join the team, and Alan convinced me to join as well. We were immediately interested in each other, but it took Shane a couple weeks of kickball and flipcup games to finally make a move!
Although neither of us is from DC originally, it will always be where we fell in love. Some of our first dates were to the national museums, the zoo and to embassies’ open houses. We chose our venue due to its historical significance and proximity to all the major dc attractions. Our guests were able to easily walk everywhere!
The day of the wedding was a little stressful because we knew it would rain at some point, but it was unclear exactly when it would happen. Fortunately, the rain held off for the ceremony and cocktail hour! It started pouring down right after we entered for dinner and the reception! We like to think we got the best of both worlds – the beautiful outdoor ceremony we planned, plus plenty of good luck from the rain, while everyone danced the night away.”
