DIANA BIACORA & SOHRAB GHAZI-ZADEH
July 8, 2016
FROM DIANA: Believe it or not we met at a club ... but keep reading. We were both at a club for our friends’ birthdays, and my girlfriends pointed him out to me and told me to talk to him. On Boxing Day we went for Greek food on Toronto’s Danforth Avenue and learned that we had several mutual friends connecting us. Eight years, a few long- distance stints and plenty of Skype calls later, we made it official. For the wedding, we wanted a soft and romantic look. We wanted the day to feel classic yet modern, so we chose a palette of white, ivory, cream, blush, soft greys and natural greens, with brass accents. Some of our favourite wedding details included seeing all the candles lit up in the tent, and sitting under a lace canopy held by our mothers, grandmothers and bridesmaids in front of a traditional Persian sofreh aghd (wedding spread). My favourite moment of the day was reading a handwritten letter by Sohrab just before putting on my wedding gown. It took me three attempts to read it because I was in tears. Sohrab is a man of few words and to have him do something like this was very unexpected, thoughtful and touching. We selected the song “Yellow” by Coldplay for the first- dance song. We’ve gone to a few Coldplay concerts together and it brought back memories of being in the moment and seeing a million lights brighten a dark room. We also shared a lot of laughs with this song trying to practise our first dance in the kitchen!
