On September 5, 2010, Dr. Jasmine Kahen married Dr. Jacob Rastegar at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California. The event was not only a spectacular affair due to the breathtaking décor, but also because of the way in which the spirituality of the couple was reflected throughout the night.
Their ceremony took place in the Beverly Hills Ballroom of the iconic hotel. Trees featuring crystals hanging from flowering branches were placed indoors to frame the interior and provide a touch of nature. Soft gold lighting cast dramatic shadows on the ceiling, giving the room a modern yet romantic ambiance. A large chuppah draped in fabric and overflowing with flowers in shades of white and ivory provided the backdrop against which the couple exchanged their vows. Their ornate ketubah was on display for all to see. Guests moved into the International Ballroom for the dinner and reception that followed.
Long tables were lined with gold Chiavari chairs and covered in white and gold linens. Guests were served their multi-course meal on gold-trimmed charger plates that reflected elegant candlelight. Tall centerpieces featuring a mix of white and ivory flowers were kissed with greenery and dangling crystal accents. Floral arrangements in the shape of swans adorned the perimeter of the space. The couple performed their first dance surrounded by a sea of mist on a large white dance floor that featured their monogram in gold. Pink and purple lights gave the room and adjacent lounge area a festive, hip vibe as guests danced the night away to a full band.
