Even on the most beautiful day a bride can become distressed, so you can imagine how impressed I was by Laili's upbeat and refreshingly relaxed demeanor on her wedding day, which happened to be the same day Hurricane Irene shut down Manhattan. Public transportation may not have been working, but this didn't stop Laili and Paul, who live in Geneva, Switzerland, or their guests from making it to their gorgeous afternoon ceremony at St. Patrick's Cathedral. The couple and their guests braved the coastal winds and headed to the Prince George Ballroom for the reception. Laili is an interior designer and her design aesthetic is represented all throughout the sophisticated blue and orange decor. Laili and Paul were introduced as husband and wife to the sounds of "Signed, Sealed, Delivered I'm Yours" by Stevie Wonder and Laili, who is of Persian heritage, shared a traditional Persian dance with her father. No amount of rain or wind could have stopped the joyous feeling surrounding Laili and Paul's wedding day. Congratulations Laili and Paul! Thanks to Jeff Tisman for the stunning photos.
