Dearest Sarvenaz and Kevin, Congratulations!

Sandi and I are honored to be invited. Thank you! We love your hi-tech invitation, it is amazing! However, we regret wholeheartedly, that we cannot attend.

Sarvenaz, it was not to long ago you were just a beautiful, little girl. How you’ve grown into a beautiful, young lady, ready to go through one of the most special events of your life! We are so happy you have found Kevin, the love of your life. May the love and happiness you both have found together, be just like the perfect circle of a wedding ring, and may it continue for ever.

Your beautiful relationship reminds me of one of my favorite quotes: “Man and woman are like the two wings of a bird and when both wings are reinforced with the same impulse the bird of humanity will be enabled to soar heaven-ward to the summit of progress.”

Much Happiness and Love in your marriage!

Love you both,

Sarv and Kevin,

Congrats!! Such beautiful news! I am sure it will be a lovely wedding! I am so sorry that I probably won't be able to make it. My mom has had some serious health issues lately, and I need to be back in the DC area at several points this summer to help her through treatments. I can't make any travel plans at this point, since issues with her health are so unpredictable. My best wishes, and I cannot wait to see pictures and hear all about it!

Much love,

Liis

About Us

Our Favorite Trip - Bhutan

Given that our first date was in the French Riviera, it's no surprise that traveling together is one of our favorite activities. In addition to France and Monaco, some of our highlights include St. Martin, Grenada, Cambodia, and Malaysia.

Our absolute favorite was The Royal Kingdom of Bhutan, a tiny country in the Himalayan mountains between India, Nepal, and Tibet/China. We spent ten days there after my dermatology board exam, and it was the experience of a lifetime!

What excited us to go originally was photos and stories of Tiger's Nest, a cliffside temple up in the mountains. But what we didn't realize was how much we'd fall in love with the culture and people of Bhutan. The serenity and natural beauty was like heaven on earth!

We'll never forget visiting a monastery of young monks, and realizing that most of them were infected with tinea capitis, a fungal scalp infection. We were able to purchase medicine from a nearby pharmacy, dose it based on their weight (for most of the boys, this was the first time they had seen a scale!), and donate the medicine to the monastery.

It was incredibly rewarding for us to be able to contribute to the Bhutanese people in a small way and make a difference in these boys lives. We hope we'll get to go back again!!!

About Us

The Groom

Kevin grew up outside of Boston in Boxborough, Massachusetts, with his sister Karen, mom Peggy, and dad Dennis. He went to Acton-Boxborough High School with his friends and groomsmen Pete, Rick, and Matt. Growing up, Kevin played several sports competitively; it was in high school that he decided to focus on soccer. He went on to play soccer at Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island, where he also majored in economics. For the last seventeen years, he has been working in investment banking at Keefe, Bruyette, & Woods, for over a decade in Manhattan, and recently in San Francisco. Kevin enjoys fly fishing, cooking (insanely!) spicy food with his Cuisinart, and going on long challenging hikes -- Patagonia and Taos, New Mexico are two of his favs.

About Us

The Bride

I grew up in Northridge, a suburb of Los Angeles, with my sister Paula, brother Sam, mom Mehran, and dad Sohrab. I went to Calabasas High School (where I met my amazing friend Amanda!), and then moved across the country to go to Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland. I was a total dork and majored in Biomedical Engineering, which I loved, believe it or not. I was also the director of a peer counseling group called A Place to Talk, one of my favorite Hopkins memories. I then moved to Boston to go to Harvard Medical School. Including my internship at Carney Hospital, those were six cold years in my life. But I did make time for oil painting in the Public Gardens, salsa dancing with my sweet med school friend Alisa, becoming great friends with my neighbors Darcy and Danielle, and going to Machu Picchu with my sis. With my adorably affectionate cat Reina (see her photos on the left!), I made my way back to sunny California for my three-year dermatology residency at UC Davis in Sacramento. And that’s where I met Kevin! Hurray!!! :-) I spent the last year as an attending dermatologist at Loma Linda University, teaching residents and medical students. I now work at a wonderful dermatology practice in Marin, just north of San Francisco.

About Us

Proposal

From Kevin:

I conspired with Sarvenaz's friend and co-resident Dan Michael to have her see a "patient" at the end of the day on Friday, the day after a stressful dermatology exam. Dan helped me sneak into the clinic, hide in an exam room, and put balloons all over her car. Sarv expected something for the weekend, but not this….

So, I hid in the exam room, sat on the exam table, wearing a tux, thermometer in mouth, carrying the self-designed pill bottle in my coat pocket with the ring inside (scroll to see the picture on the left). When Sarv arrived in the room, she was shocked to see I was no patient! I told her, "I have a fever, and the only prescription … is more Sarvenaz." I got down on one knee and asked if she would “fill my prescription for more Sarvenaz,” a play on one of our favorite Saturday Night Live skits, “More Cowbell” with Christopher Walken. She said yes!

We came out of the exam room to find the whole clinic still there waiting to hear what happened. We went to Napa Valley for the weekend to celebrate.

You can see a clip of SNL's "More Cowbell" skit here:

About Us

Our Story

From Sarvenaz:

Kevin and I met in Las Vegas in December of 2006, where we were joining our friends Karin and Darius who were running a half-marathon together. Karin was my friend and co-resident at UC Davis, and Darius was Kevin’s longstanding friend from New York. We saw each other again at their engagement party a few months later, but since he lived all the way in New York and I was in California, we didn't think much of it.

Later that year, when we were separately planning to go to Karin and Darius’s wedding in Sweden, I asked Karin if any of her friends wanted to travel together beforehand. Turns out that Kevin and I were the only ones traveling alone! So I passed on the word to Darius. It was at Aaron Bullwinkle's wedding weekend that Kevin heard the news.

After hearing this, Kevin skillfully transitioned my suggestion of casually traveling to Ireland together before the wedding into an incredible fantasy vacation to the French Riviera. Our first date was in Cannes in August of 2007, our third date in Monaco!!!! But it didn’t just start there….

For two months before we left, we had been emailing each other every day. At first, simply to make travel arrangements. But then the emails continued. Long, funny, detailed, enticing. Some in French (that didn’t go too well), lots in Spanish. All hilarious, captivating, and really endearing. We felt like we knew each other well before we got there. Once in Sweden, we learned we shared the same ridiculously-dorky sense of humor too – holy sheet!!! :-)

Suffice it to say, our story was a fairy tale! We didn’t leave each other’s sides for ten days straight. It was like nothing existed but each other! We did manage to go out for a night on the town at the Monte Carlo Casino (photo on left), but we didn’t bet a single euro.... By the time we got to Karin and Darius’s wedding a week later, we said I love you to each other!!!

For the next six months, Kevin flew out to visit me almost every single weekend! Being together was just blissful. By February, Kevin moved out to San Francisco. Two months later, we were engaged. :-)
