CHRISTINE'S STORY: A JOURNEY'S END

Now that the wedding bliss has passed, I want to share a little bit about my wedding planning journey and my experiences as a Harsanik Bride's Story Winner. Some girls spend their entire childhood dreaming about their wedding and what it would be like. This was not the case for me. When Victor proposed, it was like the world stopped for a minute. As soon as the news spread to our friends and family, the immediate question was "So when's the big day?!" That's when I realized we needed to start planning our wedding.

CHRISTINE'S STORY: TRASH THE DRESS PHOTOSHOOT!

Years before I even started planning our wedding, I was introduced to Pinterest. As I started my Pinterest search, the first images I came across were about a unique idea called "Trash the Dress" photography, where after the wedding, the bride and groom essentially "trash" their outfits to get some incredible photos.

CHRISTINE'S STORY: BRIDESMAIDS GIFTS

The first place we went after our parent's homes was my cousin Armine's home. Armine's two daughters, Anita and Aileen, are also two of my bridesmaids. In addition to the invitations, I decided to present them with their bridesmaid gifts.

CHRISTINE'S STORY: LASHES BY LYNETTE

When I heard that there was going to be a bridal bar at last year's Harsanik Bridal Show, I was so excited! I had recently heard about lash extensions so I definitely wanted to try them. When I arrived at the bridal show, I met Lynette from Lynette Marie Skincare and Lashes. Her bubbly personality was so welcoming!

Lynette specializes in skincare and lashes at Tranquility Spa in La Canada which is conveniently local for me. Lynette did a demo of what eyelash extensions would be like on me. She reminded me that when you are on your honeymoon, you don't want to have to wake up and put mascara on. Especially if you are going somewhere tropical where you are going to be in the water often.
