Tara and her husband embarked on a romantic journey that led them to the captivating shores of Puglia, Italy. Their combined passion for travel and exploring new horizons inspired them to choose a destination wedding. This decision transformed their special day into a global celebration, weaving together Tara’s Iranian heritage with the enchanting charm of an Italian destination.
How They Met
Their love story began on a fateful day in the UAE, where they met on their first day at work. Their connection only deepened, culminating in a romantic proposal on the secluded beaches of the Seychelles.
Under the gentle hues of a Seychellois sunrise, Tara’s husband knelt on the soft sands and asked her the most important question of their lives. With the waves as their witness, he proposed, sealing their commitment to a future filled with endless adventures and boundless love.
Why The Couple Chose A Destination Wedding
With hearts woven together by their love for travel, a destination wedding was a natural choice for Tara and her husband. They envisioned a celebration that would not only mark their union but also treat their guests to a three day celebration where they didn’t have to lift a finger. For this couple, celebrating amidst the beauty of foreign lands was not just a choice but a cherished dream come true.
Their remarkable wedding planner guided them through various venues, and just when they believed they had settled on the ideal location, they arrived at the castle. The instant their eyes met its grandeur, they were captivated. The castle emanated an unmatched charm and majesty that left them utterly spellbound. Its myriad of spaces, each more enchanting than the last, filled them with excitement.
The prospect of their guests immersing themselves in this regal ambiance brought them immense joy. Italy had always been a lifelong dream, and even though they chose Puglia without prior visits, it proved to be the perfect choice. Puglia quickly became one of their most cherished places in the world.
Tara’s vision for the day was one of timeless elegance. Opting for a neutral palette, the flowers, table settings, and bridesmaids’ dresses came together in a harmonious blend of sophistication.
The Wedding Dress
From the moment she laid eyes on it, Tara’s wedding dress became an instant love affair. Surprisingly, it was one of the first dresses she tried on, capturing her heart in an instant. The journey to her dream dress took nine months, during which anticipation grew with each passing day. What made it utterly perfect for her was its ingenious 2-in-1 design. The ethereal overskirt transformed the gown into a fairy tale princess dress, and when she removed it for the reception, it felt like an entirely new creation, adding a touch of magic to her special day.
