After almost a decade of dating and a romantic helicopter proposal, Artin and Sarineh got married on September 26, 2015 with a beautiful, traditional Armenian wedding. Here are all the details of their love story and fairytale wedding captured by Talin Film Photo & Video.
How They Met
Sarineh was a senior in High School when she met Artin through mutual friends. Sarineh's friend was showing her boyfriend and friend, Artin, pictures of her birthday when Artin noticed Sarineh and started asking questions about her. At first, Sarineh refused to go out, but eventually they decided to go on a double date. Sarineh was immediately attracted to Artin because he was very polite, respectful, and a complete gentleman. Since then, they continued dating until a year later Artin gave Sarineh a promise ring in Santa Monica, CA.
It was March 2013, when Artin and Sarineh went to Catalina Island to celebrate Artin's birthday. He told her they'd be spending his birthday there and as they were flying there in a helicopter, he popped the question and asked Sarineh to marry him. Sarineh said yes, marking the beginning of a new chapter in their lives.
Artin and Sarineh started wedding planning about a year and a half in advance. They began with the wedding reception hall and took it from there. The couple's favorite parts of wedding planning were going to different appointments every weekend, whereas the challenging part was deciding between the many options and vendors.
They imagined a purple, fairytale, royal wedding with lots of sparkle! Sarineh said she ended up not having as much sparkle as she anticipated and that is the only thing she would add if she got to do this again. Artin and Sarineh had a traditional Armenian wedding starting with the morning celebration at the bride's house, followed by a photoshoot, Church ceremony, and a wedding reception. Everything they planned came together beautifully and the couple had a wonderful time celebrating their special day.
