  • Nilou was an absolute pleasure to work with! She was incredibly elegant and professional, and was very accommodating with our preferences. We loved how she made the ceremony personalized and did an excellent job focusing on our love.

  • Nilou was highly recommended to us by 3 of our family/friends whose weddings she officiated-one of which we attended and solidified our decision to request her services. She's elegant, eloquent, professional and attentive. She spoke to us several times and asked us and those close to us details regarding our relationship and our love for each other. Even though we had seen her beautifully officiate the wedding of a dear friend, we were all blown away with how memorable and unique she made our wedding ceremony. She captured my husband and I's love in its totality with personal details, funny stories, beautiful quotes and poetry. She evoked tears, laughter, and love from every person in attendance, including us. I am forever grateful to her for making one of the most important moments of our lives so wonderfully special. I could not recommend a better officiant! She listens to what the couple want and delivers it with grace and beauty. All of our guests were blown away by the ceremony an... Read more

  • Nilou officiated my wife's and my Persian wedding ceremony this past October. We had first reached out to her after struggling to find an officiant with knowledge of Persian wedding ceremonies in our area. After just one conversation with her we knew she was the one we wanted to marry us. She is extremely knowledgeable about a variety of different types of ceremonies and was able to advise my wife and I on creating the perfect structure for ours. During our meetings, she asked us questions about how we’d met and what we loved most about each other, and was able to bring details about our relationship into the ceremony. She read beautiful selections from poems during the ceremony too--in perfect Farsi, English and even French--which she thought were good representations our relationship. Her presence during the ceremony was inspiring, and so were her words. Overall, it was the most perfect ceremony we could have imagined. In the days following the wedding we received nothing...

  • I started working with Nilou 8 months before my wedding as a day of planner and she exceeded my expectations. She was available for me anytime I needed her and started working with me almost 2 months before my big day. Most planners start working with you only a month or a week before. Nilou is very professional, but also makes you feel so close and comfortable with her. She is very thorough and never misses a single detail. I couldn't have asked for a better planner for my big day! Thank you Nilou joon for making our special day seamless and unforgettable.

  • My daughter’s wedding ceremony was so beautiful and extraordinary thanks to gracious Nilou. I knew from the moment I saw Nilou to talk about the details that it was the best choice that we made for officiant. She’s eloquent, classy, and so caring. Her in depth knowledge of Persian wedding ceremony traditions is superb. Nilou is the best and I strongly recommend her.

  • We were so incredibly happy to have had Mrs. Nouri be the officiant to our wedding. From the first moment we spoke to her, we knew that she would be the person that would set the tone for our entire day, and she certainly did. The ceremony was beautifully executed with the perfect mixture of Persian traditions sprinkled with American styles. We could not have imagined it any other way. Our guests all raved about the ceremony and how beautiful everything was. My husband and I still talk about how that was probably the most memorable part of our day, our aghd ceremony. Thank you Nilou joon you are truly an amazing spirit and your presence at our wedding was truly magical.

  • Nilou officiated my brother's wedding in 2016, and I knew after that day that she would be the easiest vendor decision I would make once I got engaged (even though I was getting married halfway across the country). She spent time prior to the wedding getting to know my husband and myself to make sure our ceremony was exactly what we wanted for our dual culture (Iranian / Western) ceremony. Her attention to detail is wonderful, and she does a fantastic job customizing the ceremony. Nilou is so elegant and professional! We had to make some changes right before the ceremony due to weather, and she made them seamlessly to the point where even I (as the bride) did not notice. Over half of our guests were not Persian, and she did a great job making them feel part of the ceremony by explaining the symbolism and meanings behind the many Iranian traditions. We are still receiving so many compliments on our ceremony thanks to Nilou! Thank you for making our wedding ceremony so special!

  • Nilou was recommended by our cake vendor and I am so happy we decided to pick her as our officiant. She is so eloquent and put together the most beautiful Western/Persian ceremony with so much elegance and humor. It was seriously a dream and all of our guests raved about the ceremony.

  • We were SO happy with Nilou's work as our officiant! Her experience and confidence was exactly what we needed to help guide us through planning our culturally hybrid and highly personalized ceremony. She has an amazing talent for taking charge with clear recommendations and timelines just when it is needed while also balancing with staying true to our vision and sentiment. We got so many compliments from friends and family about her. After several meetings discussing our plans, she came up with a beautiful, multi-lingual ceremony that represented both our humor and our deepest felt love for each other. We wanted to include our respective cultures in the ceremony but had no idea what that would look like. With poise and grace, Nilou was able to craft a ceremony that incorporated old and new customs - and some that we just made up! Nilou is incredibly professional and was a pleasure to work with. We would wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone looking for an officiant.

  • Complete strangers raved about Nilou to my wife and I when we told them who was officiating our wedding and they were totally justified. Nilou is an amazing officiant and was able to blend the Persian and western elements of our wedding seamlessly. She has a very calming and elegant presence, which made the event that much nicer. Not to mention she adjusted on the fly when we had a major hiccup at our ceremony. We are incredibly grateful to Nilou for making our special day so memorable and would recommend her to anyone looking for an officiant.

  • Aside from being an experienced and captivating speaker, Nilou really made sure to deliver what my husband and I wanted for our ceremony, regardless of conventional norms. She's very flexible, open-minded, and inclusive. I asked for Nilou's help in a panic a couple weeks before the wedding. I'm so grateful for how responsive she was and how she immediately put me at ease with her professionalism! Thank you for being part of our special day!

  • Nilou was an amazing officiant and we are glad that she was a part of our wedding ceremony. As a persian man marrying a non-persian woman, we wanted to blend the cultural aspects of each of our backgrounds and Nilou did a wonderful job accomplishing just that. She worked with us to make sure we were happy with the outcome, she was a consummate professional throughout the process and we received many compliments after our wedding.

  • Booking Nilou as our officiant and day of coordinator was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding! After meeting with her locally in San Francisco, we quickly realized that Nilou was not only highly professional and an expert at her trade but she also took time to get to know us and about our families to create a unique and memorable ceremony for our Persian American wedding across the country. She put everyone, especially us at ease, researching the out-of-state marriage license information and delivering a beautiful, eloquent ceremony. She flawlessly orchestrated the communication and vendor coordination in advance and on the day of the wedding so that any last minute details were executed perfectly. Our guests were very impressed and we cannot thank Nilou enough for all her efforts to make our special day the best it could be!

  • Nilou is a 10/10. Before booking Nilou for our wedding, I had seen her officiate a few weddings. I was always extremely impressed by her. She is truly one of a kind. When my husband and I got engaged, we knew immediately we wanted a Persian wedding. I am Persian, but my husband is not. When it came time to book an officiant for our wedding, I wanted someone who I knew could capture the beautiful nuances of Persian culture and explain it to those who were not familiar with this style of wedding in a romantic, beautiful and hilarious way. We knew we wanted Nilou. There is no one else! Not only does Nilou engage the crowd, make everyone laugh, explain all the traditions perfectly in Farsi and English (or whatever you want - she is incredibly accommodating and will style your ceremony any way you desire) she shows up dressed to KILL! Her impeccable style is unforgettable. I have had so many guests come to me after the wedding, asking about her and commenting on how fabulous she is. The g... Read more

  • We loved working with Nilou. She was great about getting to know our personalities, both individually and as a couple, even though we were located far away (Australia). We also love that she brought her own character to the ceremony; it was not generic at all. It was heartfelt, and everything went smoothly. She brought a cheerful but calming presence to our special day, and she also filed the paperwork for us afterwards, so we didn't have to think about it after we signed. We would highly recommend her!
