These two simply stole our hearts. From the moment we met Nilou and Gerald we knew this was going to be a wedding to remember. Nilou is a Broker/Realtor and CEO of Stage of Designs, Gerald is a Professional Basketball Player and together they are #Gilou, or in other words, perfect! Nilou knew what she wanted and we were happy to make it all happen for her, and Gerald too!
The weekend started with a Persian Ceremony to honor Nilou's Iranian heritage. It took place on the rooftop of Level 28, a super chic, semi private space atop AKA in University City. It is one of the sweetest ceremonies we have witnessed to date. They danced the night away to Persian music and enjoyed custom henna tatoo's.
The next day started bright and early with 15 plus ladies getting hair and make up done for the church ceremony to be held at Holy Trinity in Rittenhouse Square. After the ceremony we ventured over to Water Works for the reception.
It was truly an amazing night filled with lots of love and endless surprises! Look for this wedding to be published in Philadelphia Wedding Magazine!
