Favorite part of the day: "Aside from the ceremony itself, we absolutely loved the Persian food!

The bufet included Shirazi salad, yogurt cucumber salad, salmon with caper beurre blanc sauce, safron chicken, Persian rice and grilled vegetables. Wedding planner: "My poor mother (Ruth Ohlendorf)! Because Cameron and I are both so busy, she had to do the majority of the wedding planning and deal with my being rather particular."
