Just Married

Ashley Basij and Samuel Barbara
December 31, 2016

Happy New Year! Ashley and Samuel loved their New Year’s Eve wedding, all gold and sparkles, with Ashley’s crystal-bodiced wedding gown and bridesmaids in sequined silver dresses. To Keep You Warm: Blankets were handed around as favors so guests could keep warm during the chilly evening ceremony. Persian Delight: Ashley’s Persian heritage crept into the event with a sweetheart table set upon an authentic Persian rug brought from Iran by her grandparents. Midnight Munchies: Cheeseburger sliders and french fries hit the scene at midnight, and kept everyone fueled up for dancing till well into the new year. Confetti Kisses: On the golf course, under the rain of confetti shot from cannons, the couple kissed under the beautiful night sky.
