From the Bride... Alex and I were married almost exactly three months ago at the Central Park Boathouse in New York City. It was a gorgeous day, and we had a traditional Western non-denominational ceremony followed by the Persian "sofreh aghd" ceremony. We infused my Persian heritage into many aspects of the wedding, including having a traditional Persian "knife dance" during the cake cutting. My nieces and female family members danced with the knife (really the server) used to cut the cake and teased the bride and groom until the groom finally paid my niece, who was the last one holding the knife/server. The whole night was filled with so much love, laughter and dancing, and Magic Flute Videos did such a great job catching the spirit of the day that I thought I would share!
