Masha and Kambiz: A Cinderella Story by Guest Blogger Tom Trainor

Today's guest blogger is Tom Trainor of Suburban Video.  Suburban Video is a member of the PARTY FAVORITES PORTFOLIO.  We selected Suburban Video as PARTY FAVORITES PORTFOLIO member because although Bill Bowen and his team been capturing DC-area events on film for 25 years, their work remains some of the freshest and most current in the industry.


Masha and Kambiz celebrated their beautiful Persian wedding ceremony in the intimate Crystal Room at the historic Willard Intercontinental Hotel Washington DC. Suburban Video filmed all of the elegance of the bridal party’s preparation for the day. The world renowned Erwin Gomez as always was perfection with the bride’s makeup and Giselle of Elegant Hair designed the bride’s stunning hair. Len Depas from The Photographers Gallery alongside Bill & Cara Bowen captured all the romantic energy of the bride and groom. Photos were taken around the hotel grounds and at the Tidal Basin across from the Jefferson Memorial. Masha and Kambiz toured historic Washington, DC in a horse drawn carriage and arrived in grand fashion for the reception. Suburban Video projected their arrival onto a theatre screen simulating their walking right out of the carriage into the Willard Ballroom as they were introduced as husband and wife. The world famous Moin from Iran kicked the reception off with dynamic sounds and traditional songs and energized the crowd. Patrice Golesorkhi of Exclusively Events expertly designed and coordinated this fabulous wedding. This cinematic reel truly reflects the romance, energy and style of this bridal couple.
