CHRISTINE'S STORY: BOOKING OUR HONEYMOON

Victor and I knew that no matter where we went on our honeymoon, we would incorporate our culture and experience a new place to see together. We hoped to have the opportunity to experience the countries from which our families come from together one day.

Our good friend, Hrant Vartzbedian, invited Victor to join him and AGBU, the largest Armenian non-profit organization for a SARF dinner. Victor purchased a few raffle tickets. The grand prize was airfare to Armenia. A few weeks later we were absolutely shocked when Hrant told us that Victor had actually won the grand prize!

TALAR'S STORY: BRIDESMAIDS DRESSES

All I ever knew about my bridesmaid's dresses was that they had to be the color mint. Keeping this in mind, two of my bridesmaids and I happened to be in downtown one day and decided to just peek and see what dresses may be available. We walked into a store, and I saw a particular dress hanging on a mannequin. I fell in love with the look and asked to see it in mint. My friends tried on the dress in mint and although I thought it was pretty, it definitely was hard to picture five girls in that dress in that color.

TALAR'S STORY: LET THERE BE CAKE!

It seems as though wedding cakes have become a sort of competition: how many tiers, how many flavors, the design, etc. I've even seen some upside down, albeit beautiful, cakes. I knew that I always wanted a smaller cake, something simple yet elegant, plain yet delicious. So naturally, I started my search, like most others, on Pinterest. I searched and searched and never found a cake that I fell in love with. I even put Serj to work to find a design he liked, and well, he came back with a Batman cake!
