Goldbarg and Drew truly had the most beautiful day for their wedding at the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum. The sun shining off the pond was the perfect backdrop for their wedding ceremony, which took place outside in the Ravine. Immediately following the ceremony, guests were greeted with a Rhubarb – Prosecco specialty cocktail and nibbled on tasty hors d’oeuvres prepared by Blue Plate Catering. Guests were treated to a delicious Persian inspired menu (to reflect the bride’s background) while dining alfresco on the terrace. The terrace looked stunning with dining tables adorned in ivory and raspberry shades and simple, yet elegant floral arrangements designed by Eva’s Flowers.
The cake cutting was no ordinary cake cutting ceremony! It is a tradition in Golbarg’s family to do the Persian Cake Dance. The purpose of the cake dance is for the couple to retrieve the cake knife by offering money to the dancers who posess the cake knife. The bride and groom continue to offer money to try and get the cake knife. A little back and forth, and a few dance moves later, Goldbarg and Drew retrieved the cake knife and cut into their beautifully designed cake by Take the Cake.
The rest of the evening was spent dancing to the beats of DJ Sultan from PMI Productions. After a few hours of dancing, the guests refueled with late night snacks including mini hot dogs, sliders and gyros. The evening was truly magical and J. Brown Photography did an amazing job capturing all of the special moments throughout the event.
