Forget what the internet tells you; there is really no time frame for dating. Miguel and Nazanin Mandi are proof.
The couple who met when they were just 18, got married over the weekend after dating for 13 whole years and it was every bit as beautiful as can be.
The wedding which took place at the Hummingbird Nest Ranch in Simi Valley, California saw the bride Nazanin who is a model, actress and artist dressed in a gorgeous Monique Lhuillier gown, while the groom looked dashing in a tux by Van Van.
Just before their wedding, the couple recounted their unconventional engagement to Vogue. See excerpts below.
“The engagement in D.R.—it was an adventure,” says model, actress, and artist Nazanin “Naz” Mandi. “For sure, it was an adventure. Long story short, we were there for a week—right? Probably, the fifth day there I drank the water, and I got really sick.”
“This was early!” the Grammy Award–winning singer Miguel Pimentel interjects when he realizes that his longtime love is launching into the tale of how the two became engaged. “She just passed out; the sun is starting to come up. She’s completely knocked out . . . drool coming down her face. I was like, ‘Aw, poor thing.’ ”
“I think you’re being dramatic,” Naz says with a laugh.
“So, you know, I kind of slide out stealthily,” Miguel explains. “Grab the ring, get her hand, and delicately slide it on and then get back in bed until she wakes up. It takes her a minute to notice it and then she notices it.”
“I turned over and was like, ‘Oh my god, I did not expect this at all!’ ” Naz says with a smile.
