Shams + Sharmin {a fusion of 5 cultures: wedding sneak peak}

We have had the pleasure of getting to know this beautiful couple lately and am honored to share a sneak peak of their unique story and wedding taking place over 4 days in August 2016.

Bride: Dr. Sharmin Dharas, Groom: Shams Mehri

Wedding dates: August 24-28, 2016

“Our theme for our save the dates was to join the two cultures where we were born. My fiance was born in Kabul, Afghanistan so his mom sent me their traditional clothes as a gift to wear for the photo shoot at Casa Rondena Winery. The architecture at the winery really gave the image of us being in Afghanistan. I was born in Albuquerque, New Mexico and in order to depict the new Mexican flavor in our pictures we went the flamenco way and took pictures in Madrid New Mexico, Santa Fe New Mexico and Sandia mountains. Our photographer really knows how to capture the moment and is very familiar with our cultures! The wedding is a 5 day 8 event wedding that will include 5 different cultures that exhibit who we are and how we were raised. Its been tough but well worth the experience!”
