The Couple: Samin and Joseph

Samin Saniei met Joseph Martinez at a club while on vacation in New York City; they chatted up the night and began a long-distance relationship soon afterward. Two years later, Joseph moved to Toronto to be with Samin and surprised her by proposing in her parents’ backyard. The romantic set-up included a live violinist, an oversized ring structure, rose petals, the question “Will you marry me?” cast over the pool, and friends and family waiting nearby to celebrate with an impromptu engagement party.

THE WEDDING

Samin and Joseph’s wedding took place at the Aga Khan Museum in Toronto, Ontario. Full-service event planning and design was provided by Sincerely Yours Events, with event planning and coordination supported by Grace Arhin Events.

 


Samin wore a “two-in-one” glittering Pnina Tornai wedding gown. After the first dance, Samin removed the gown’s overskirt to reveal a sleek second look. The traditional Persian wedding ceremony was held outdoors at the Aga Khan Museum’s gardens featuring a beautiful Sofreh.

THE CEREMONY

The outdoor wedding ceremony had a “fresh heavenly feel” and featured a Sofreh by La Violetta with flowers by Henna Florist. Samin’s brother officiated the ceremony, guiding lighthearted traditional aspects like the grinding of sugar cones by happily married women, as well as asking the bride three times if she “agreed” to marry the groom. 

 


THE COCKTAIL HOUR

Cocktail hour took place at sunset, which reflected the beautiful evening light around the reflective ponds of the venue. During this time, guests enjoyed passed appetizers and an oyster bar while the bride and groom enjoyed a portrait session with Purple Tree Photography. So Pretty in Print designed the gold mirrored seating chart.


THE RECEPTION

In contrast with the light and airy ceremony, the wedding reception, held in two tents, was designed with an enchanted garden theme using lush greenery and black decor.
Henna Florist provided florals for the wedding. Both tents were from Premier Event Tent Rentals. All day-of stationery was designed by So Pretty in Print, including the flower-shaped menu with a gold mirrored center and white and gold petals. The table numbers were created with tactile velvet. 

The wedding reception included all of the traditional elements such as the father-daughter dance and bouquet toss, while also showcasing experiential entertainment in the form of ballet dancers and an interactive cigar bar. A DJ and live band played a mix of Persian music with songs requested by the groom.
