Traditional Iranian wedding of Pegah and Lincoln in Antalya
We met with Pegah and Lincoln on the occasion of their wedding request, which they set out in May 2022. After long correspondence, they chose Club Arma Hotel for the wedding. Club Arma is really the most important wedding venue of Antalya. Pegah and Lincoln wanted to throw a very special party on the ship with their guests the day before the wedding.
We offered them our 5-deck Harem Maldivian ship partner. For private weddings and parties, the Harem Maldivian is the most exclusive luxury ship in Antalya, serving as a floating hotel.
On 02/06/2023, we took Pegah and Lincoln, their bridesmaids and groomsmen with 2 limousines and their guests by buses to the Harem Maldives ship. During the trip, Pegah had a lot of fun with her bridesmaids and Lincoln with her groomsmen in the limousines.
Iranian traditional dishes and Turkish traditional dishes were served on board.
Our team picked up the wedding group from Antalya Çelebi Marina with Harem Maldiv and anchored near the island in Antalya Mediterranean waters. Incredible Antalya city view and night lights added m
eaning to the night. Everyone had a great time at the party on the ship. On the way back, everyone was very tired but happy.
On the 03/06/2023 wedding day, my team and I were very stressed because the weather forecast said it was 80% rainy…
Club Arma was an outdoor venue by the sea. We contacted Pegah and Lincoln and immediately got 100 umbrellas for all the guests. A special tent was supplied to each table. Wedding decoration preparations started at Club Arma, the weather was cloudy, it was bound to rain, but when.
All decoration preparations are finished.
The sofreh table, the bridal table and the guests' tables were specially designed with vibrant white roses and white Casablanca flowers. Specially designed live flowers and candles were made for the bridal table and the Turkish table. I personally made all the special designs myself so that Pegah would like the bridal table and the sofreh table very much.
I and my team prepared for this wedding with very special enthusiasm. Our only fear was what we would do if it rained. The weather is as if it will rain at any moment and it is cloudy, the stress is high. Pegah phoned me, she was very hectic and said: “All the decorations are closed, please remove the tents we put up for the rain, I am very unhappy, I want to see the decorations without a tent.” Pegah was true. Rain is coming.
My god, I'm confused about what to do. We've been doing international weddings for years, I've never felt so helpless… There are 30 minutes until the ceremony and we have to dismantle 20 tents and rearrange the tables. All the employees of Club Arma restaurant and our team have removed the tents together. The tents that blocked the view of the magnificent decoration were removed, and then the limousines of Pegah and Lincoln reached the wedding venue.
We grew everything in seconds. We had an incredible amount of stress, I forgot all my stress and tiredness when I saw Pegah coming down the stairs. Pegah looked incredibly beautiful in her white wedding dress. She came gliding almost like a swan, and with her magnificent smile and joy.
A magnificent traditional sofreh ceremony began when Pegah took his father's arm.
To the left of the Sofreh table were the groomsmen and to the right the bridesmaids. All of them were like oil paintings with their clothes and postures.
Lincoln, who was waiting for Pegah in front of the Sofreh table, was excited to be believed, incredibly handsome and ready to cry at any moment and was experiencing a flood of emotions.
Lincoln couldn't take it anymore as the religious wedding was held and they were telling each other about their feelings. He couldn't hold back his tears while telling Pegah about his feelings... Few can see such sincere feelings and great love in human life. The magnificent traditional religious ceremony is over.
Everyone is incredibly happy. Unfortunately, when we are saying rain will start in a short time suddenly it started to rain heavily. Everyone took the umbrellas which we bought as a preca
ution from behind their chairs and tried to protect themselves from the rain. Pegah and Lincoln also opened their umbrellas.
Everyone is screaming and dancing with joy. Everyone's morale is high and there is no panic. In fact, the bride, groom and guests turned this negative situation into entertainment and never disturbed the energy of the wedding.
They got wet, but they did not lose their joy. I appreciated Pegah, Lincoln and the guests and was very impressed.
When the rain started, I thought my heart would stop for a moment. I had the senseless feeling that even though I had a magic wand, God, I could build an invisible ceiling on top of the Club Arma. I have made too many weddings, but I learned something very important in this wedding: "If a person wants, can be happy under any circumstances."
Yes, I seem to hear you say what did you do next...
While the rain was in full swing, our team and Club Arma employees re-set up the tents and protected the tables together. We were just like a time-lapse film. With the towels we brought with us as a precaution, we quickly wiped the chairs floating in the water and made the uests sit in their places. Everyone had their share of rain and got wet, but no one lost their joy. Wedding dinners were eaten, drinks were drunk and the wedding cake was cut.
Everyone had unlimited fun. I even saw Pegah at the DJ's table, she was wearing DJ headphones. She was amusing and entertaining like crazy.
Pages are not enough to describe this wedding. Dear Pegah and Lincoln you will never forget you. Even if you get wet from the rain, you have never lost your excitement, no challenge in life can discourage you. Always go hand in hand on your joyful life path. I wish you a healthy and happy life.
With my most sincere greetings and love.
Good to know you...
