Kate and Kaveh gathered their community for a weekend of celebration in the wine country. First, the rehearsal dinner at Soda Rock Winery, followed by the main event at the unique Barndiva in Healdsburg. It was immediately clear what an incredible amount of effort and attention to detail had gone into creating Kate and Kaveh’s wedding. Soda Rock Winery was transformed with Persian wedding symbols of sweetness, opulence, and tradition. The following day, Barndiva’s welcoming outdoor spaces were in fine form to play host to the ceremony and reception. When rain appeared unavoidable, the Barndiva staff, in a whirlwind of heated effort – and a display of exemplary service – transported the entire reception indoors. Rain or shine, the vision for the wedding ultimately came together seamlessly, and the level of personal detail was especially striking. Arash, Kaveh’s brother observed in his toast that “…Kate put A LOT of effort. She came home … and just dumped out like 30 K’s, like there were just K’s everywhere. And she said ‘Which are the best two, do you think?’” A bevy of clever, hilarious, poignant toasts were dedicated to K & K each night. As family and friends took turns in front of the microphone, it became clear just how much love, respect and admiration surrounded the couple. Despite the pouring rain, the couple decided the ceremony would proceed outdoors as planned, and again the Barndiva staff came through with heat lamps and umbrellas to try to keep the guests warm and comfortable. Being music aficionados, K & K brought in local sensation Monophonics to light up the dance floor on their reception, and it wasn’t long before a party broke out. No one even thought about the rain. Only the warm embraces of family, friends, food, drink and music were palpable on that November evening. The coordination was provided by Downey Street Events.
