After meeting 10 years ago at Six Flags, Sheri Alzeerah and Sean Henry joyfully tied the knot in a vibrant and bold celebration at Lombardi House in Los Angeles. The couple’s main goal was to show their guests lots of joy, love and laughter—especially the last. True to their fun-loving personalities, they devised quirky details, such as randomly assigned table numbers, Diet Coke escort cards and unusual songs, including Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas Is You.” The brightly hued wildflower floral arrangements were inspired by the movie “Midsommar,” a nod to the couple’s weekly Sunday horror-movie night. Sheri is proudly half Filipina and half Iranian, so guests were treated to a traditional sofreh aghd, an Iranian spread of items representing different parts of a healthy marriage. The couple also fed each other honey off the tips of their pinkies, an Iranian wedding tradition symbolizing sweetness in life. The groom put his artistic skills to work and designed all of the paper products, including the colorful table numbers, place cards, menus and programs. For the bride, one of the most memorable moments was the father-daughter dance to a piano arrangement her father composed when Sheri was born. “The song is called ‘Shahrzad,’ which is my full name,” says Sheri. “I don’t think there was a single dry eye in the crowd!”
