Dear Mr. Mohtashami, I have to start by thanking you for making our wedding everything we had envisioned it to be. The ceremony was truly lovely and since it was a Persian/American wedding it was instrumental to have someone well versed in love and poetry ( in both English and Farsi) to oversee it. From our first introduction to our last hug goodbye you made us feel so comfortable as if we were your own family! We got many compliments from our guests about how beautiful and seamless our ceremony was. I honestly feel that this is not only a professional endeavor you perform but a calling... you were made for this!! Thank you again for making our wedding day one of a kind and would HIGHLY RECOMMEND you to anyone planning a wedding!

Dear Mr. Mohtashami, Weddings are all beautiful, but mine was specially more beautiful with you as our officiant. The way you performed our ceremony was beyond our expectations. When we met few days before the wedding, James and I knew that we have chosen THE right one and I don't mean each other! Your work in combining both the Iranian and American ceremonies into one and explaining the traditional Iranian ceremony to the American guests was incredible. Everyone truly loved your work and of course your jokes! Your poems were very romantic and relevant. Keep doing what you are doing. You are the best!

Ashley & James
We were truly blessed to have Mr. Mohtashami as our wedding officiant. From the first time he took time to meet with us months before our wedding day we knew he was a perfect fit. He was so helpful in getting us ready for our big day and was available whenever we had questions as the day approached. On the day of our wedding, he was calm, professional, and did a good job of capturing our entire wedding audience. Mr. Mohtashami did a great job of keeping all of our guest engaged by intertwining his beautifully delivered recitations from some of the best selections of Persian poetry and his own personal thoughts and blessings in regards to marriage. The Aghd ceremony was really important to us and we wanted to make sure that we were able to capture the beauty of the Sofreh but also have someone highlight its meaning for those that were not familiar. This is exactly what Mr. Mohtashami did by explaining the true meanings of the Sofreh in English in a very short and sweet manner. We are so happy we made this decision and will always remember him as such a special part of such a special day for us. If anyone is planning on having a ceremony that engages the audience, captures the beauty of the Persian culture, and does it with his heart do not think twice about choosing Mr. Mohtashami!

Soudeh & Sasan
We could not be more pleased with the ceremony that Mr. Mohtashami performed for our wedding. The ceremony was short and sweet, filled with beautiful poems and all well spoken by Mr. Mohtashami. We were given many compliments on the beautiful ceremony by many guests. We are truly thankful!

Shireen & Kayvon

Sahar & Michael

Thank you Mr. Mohtashami, You truly made our aghd magical. I got so many compliments about our aghd ceremony and how well spoken you are. Thank you for your beautiful poems and being a part of our special day. Much Gratitude.

We were blessed to have Mr. Mohtashami as our wedding officiant. He has a very warm, charming, and professional approach. He met with my fiancé and me two weeks before the wedding and spent time with us getting to know our personalities and telling us what we can expect. He inquired about what I was expecting for our ceremony and he taught my husband about the Persian culture. On the day of our wedding, Mr. Mohtashami surprised me by wearing a tie that matched my wedding colors! Mr. Mohtashami made the affair touching and personal, therefore my husband and I were able to relax and enjoy the wedding, without any “wedding day jitters.” I love the way he described the details of the ceremony for the non-Farsi speaking people.

Stephen & Atusa
Thank you so much for making our wedding such a beautiful, loving, meaningful event. We were so overwhelmed with how beautifully you married us. For me personally, it was the absolute highlight of my entire wedding. The way you spoke of marriage and love was so genuine and uplifting. We received the most compliments about the Persian ceremony from our guests. Your Farsi to English translations allowed everyone from all different cultures to appreciate the beauty of marriage through the traditions of the Persian culture. We even had non Persian guests requesting your information because they were so impressed. Again, thank you so much for making our wedding day perfect!

Nooshin and Ignacio
I want to thank you for making our wedding so special! You have an amazing presence that made all of us, especially the bride and groom, feel at ease. I appreciated the time you spent in attending our rehearsal, taking the time to get to know each of our family, and making sure that Richard and I stay focused on getting our Marriage License and preparing for the special day. You also took the time to explain everything in clear English, which our guests greatly appreciated I felt like you were more than just an Officiant for us. You felt like family! I loved your sense of humor and your humbleness. Again thank you from the buttom of our heart for all that you did to make our special day extra special. I'm so glad that we took a picture, which I will send you as soon as I receive from the Photographer. You receive a 5+ out of 5 from us and are highly recommended.

We could not have asked for a better experience for our wedding ceremony. Being that half of my wife’s family does not speak or understand Farsi, we wanted to make sure that the ceremony would be enjoyed by everyone. We met with Mr. Mohtashami and all of our worries and stresses about the ceremony instantly disappeared. Mr. Mohtashami’s relaxing and encouraging personality was more than we could have asked for with all the other stresses of planning a wedding. His poetry was beautiful and the translations and explanations were very thorough. My wife’s non-Farsi speaking family complimented us on the beautiful and enlightening ceremony. We would definitely recommend him for a beautiful ceremony.
