This Moment: A Wedding

{ Persian Wedding Ceremony Spread }
On Saturday, I was lucky enough to share in the joy of my dear friend Kamron marry his beautiful fiance Faaraz.  The couple had a beautiful Persian wedding, complete with the “Sofreh-ye Aghd” which is the traditional Persian Wedding Ceremony Spread.  As soon as I saw the beautiful Sofreh I knew the whole experience made up This Moment for me.  The Sofreh is adorned with colors, fragrances, objects, and blessings.  These blessings, each with a purpose, bring forth grace, hope, promise, light, and love for the bride and groom.  

Throughout the evening I thought about the love Kamron and Faaraz share for each other and it made me think of one of my favorite quotes by Dr. Seus:

“you know you’re in love when you can’t fall asleep because 
reality is finally better than your dreams.”  

As Kamron and Faaraz exchanged wedding vows, without any hesitation, I thought to myself that their reality is much better than the dreams we have of love. 

Kamron and I have been good friends for over a decade, but we’ve always acted more like siblings (he has always assumed the role of the older and annoying brother).  This brother/sister friendship had not proven so true as it did on Saturday.  As soon as I saw Kamron I was overcome with emotion – raw emotion. I couldn’t help but feel the happiness, hope, and love my friend was feeling.  It was that moment that I knew exactly what Kamron felt the moment he asked Faaraz for her hand in marriage and in the months leading up to the wedding day.  It was a good feeling to know that my dear friend was actually living his dream, the best reality anyone can experience.
