FEATURED WEDDING: SHANT & MARAL

We recently stumbled upon an Armenian wedding in the Bay Area and we knew we needed to know how the bride and groom were able to plan a full Armenian wedding with such limited Armenian vendors. Shant and Maral recently got married and since they live in the Bay Area they knew they had to work a little bit harder to find their Armenian wedding vendors in order to have a traditional Armenian wedding. Maral told us the whole story from how they met, wedding planning, and of course the wedding itself.

MANIFA'S STORY: CHOOSING OUR VIDEOGRAPHER

Hello fellow brides and wedding planners. It has been a while. Emin and I put a short hold on our wedding planning, but we are back on track!

Throughout this wedding planning journey, as many of you know, Emin and I have found it extremely difficult to book vendors. We talk to as many people that we can. We do a lot of research, but there were two vendors who were very easy to book. The first being our Videographer!

FEATURED VENDOR: SATINé BOWTIQUE

We at Harsanik are passionate about the Armenian culture and our beautiful Armenian wedding traditions, so when we stumbled upon Satiné Bowtique's Kanach Karmir product, we were thrilled to share with all of you. As some of you may know, one of the many Armenian traditions is to have the groom wear Red and Green Ribbons on the wedding day. Kanach and Karmir are the Armenian words for the colors Green and Red. We sat down with Meghedi who recently launched Satiné Bowtique and asked her to tell us more about this tradition, its meaning, and what inspired her to start this business.

DIANA'S STORY: OUR WEDDING FLOWERS

Roses, ranunculus, dahlias, coxcombs, lisianthus, amaranthus, anemones…and my centerpiece floral arrangement list goes on, and on, and on. 

Like many brides, I absolutely love flowers and picking a florist was no easy feat. When I began my search, I knew two things – (1) what floral arrangements I generally liked (the diaphanous look, typically achieved with high petal count flowers), and (2) that I wanted a romantic look for the wedding. 

With the above in mind, I went on my quest for a florist. After weeks of searching, I came across Giah Events Studio. Although I initially had some hesitation because of their location (Huntington Park), I was reassured by my contact at Giah Events, Hong, that they were more than happy to work on a wedding in Pasadena. And I have since learned that they have worked on countless Los Angeles area weddings, including many Armenian weddings in the Glendale/Pasadena area.
