From when she was a little girl, Mahsa was very fascinated with three things. Self-awareness, creativity and weddings! Growing up, she took all kinds of art classes and though her Academic background is in Psychology and Counseling, she always opted for more art and creative training. With a background and passion in Fashion and Interior design, Mahsa has years of experience in the event and wedding industry. She considers herself a perfectionist and will work tirelessly until the details are just right! In her own words, Mahsa reveals: “I treat each wedding or event as if it were my own and put my heart and soul into it to make my clients happy.” Mahsa loves to keep herself updated with the latest industry trends and vendors to ensure her clients receive a truly special event.
Friends and family would often ask Mahsa to help with the design and décor of their weddings or parties. She always happily obliged and was often times more excited about the design than the people whose wedding it was! It was at one such wedding that a family friend asked her to help her with their Sofreh Aghd (Persian Wedding Spread). With another successful and joyous event completed, Mahsa felt a strong calling to be a part of creating someone’s special day on a more regular basis. With the conviction to make her passion into a reality and a few conversations with a dear and talented friend later, our company “Sofreh Atelier” was born. Since then, we have built a strong team of talented professionals and our work has been recognized as one with sophisticated taste and an upscale approach and we have had the pleasure of working in the area’s top venues.
