Ethnic wedding traditions represent the culture, values and beliefs of a particular country. Many wedding traditions are full of symbolism that reveal a specific culture and life style. Each wedding tradition honors the sanctity of marriage and features themes of unity and new beginnings for the couple.
The Joseph Smith Memorial Building was fortunate to be able to host one such wedding where the brides Persian culture was celebrated at the reception.
The couple was married in the temple in a traditional LDS ceremony, but the reception was full of tradition and symbolism from the bride’s ethnic background. It was beautiful and very touching for all who attended.
