A Big, Fat Iranian Wedding (times two)

I have the coolest writing gig-I get paid to write a bi-monthly column called ‘Together in Tulsa’ for the regional paper, ‘This Land Press’. I’ve been doing this for two years now and loving it. And if this information is new to you, now you know.

I find unique couples in the Oklahoma area, interview them, design a photo set for them and then ‘kapow!’-photograph them. (Most of the photos are bizarre-or different-as my Dad would say.)

And, after my article has been edited for the millionth time (you know who you are, Mark…), it is printed in the physical newspaper first, and then put online a couple of weeks later.

This is my latest couple-Nick Doctor and Mana Tahaie.


The couple had planned to originally tie the knot at the justice of the peace. But, Iranian mothers don’t take “no” for an answer. Soon the couple had two weddings back to back, a house to close on and a speeding ticket to get out of-in a matter of two days.
