Sydnie and Farzad

Modern hearts meet old Persia at the Stanley Park Pavilion in Vancouver

A wedding film about Sydnie and Farzad wouldn’t be complete without copious amounts of dancing at the Stanley Park Pavilion and vibes to warm you to your core. On a bright and beautiful summer’s day in Vancouver, these lovely humans were married surrounded in nature and their community. It was all meticulously planned by the couple in a collaboration with the brilliant Spread Love Events.

Stanley Park Pavilion was the perfect setting for this nature loving duo

Honouring tradition while infusing their own meaning into the elements of ‘old Persia’ for their wedding, Sydnie and Farzad asked their community to sit with them while surrounded by the beauty of Stanley Park, raise the roof late into the night, and follow them into this next step of their lives together:









Feeling grounded in nature and honouring that by being married at the perfection that is the Stanley Park Pavilion. Catching up with old friends because the Persian community in Vancouver is the most welcoming around.

Spending every other moment of your wedding day dancing with your best friend—in the streets, in the forest, while playing an electric drum together. The most thoughtful touches of tile work, fruit, and poetry. An elegant Sofreh Aghd to delight the senses and radiate warmth. DJ Ali Fard (the one and only) bringing the house down with an assist from the talented newcomer DJ Sydnie. A grand entrance, the knife dances, and cry-laughing our way through the speeches.

If you’ve never been to a celebration infused with all manner of Persian traditions, energy, and style… you’ve been missing out 100%. This wedding filled our hearts with the kindness and warmth that is Sydnie, Farzad, and their community. Thank you, dear friends for all that you are.
