Glamour at the U.S. Grant

The historic U.S. Grant Hotel in downtown San Diego is iconic – known for it’s classic style and glamorous detailing. It was the perfect venue to celebrate Golnaz and Mohammad’s Persian wedding ceremony and reception. From the moment our blushing bride-to-be, along with her sister and mother began the getting ready-process, we knew we were in for a modern-day tale.

Since the chandeliers are such a focal point in the Crystal Ballroom, Organic Elements dressed the aisle in illustrious candlelight centering upon the ceremonial fireplace, draped with an embellished garland of green foliage and floral accents in rose varietals. Complementary chair garlands aligned the aisle with two grand centerpieces framing the entrance to the “I Do’s.”


The blossoming garland of roses and hydrangea carried through from ceremony to reception in varying centerpieces with crystal candelabras for continued candlelight ambiance. This fun-loving couple incorporated a few feel-good games for their guests — from wedding mad libs to a polaroid guest book and an indulgent display of fruit and sweets!

As always, the U.S. Grant sets the scene for an absolutely glamorous affair to celebrate this beautiful couple.  Congratulations to Golnaz and Mohammad!
