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.

Especially if you are going somewhere tropical where you are going to be in the water often.

FEATURED WEDDING: MEGAN AND GEORGE

George and Megan Safar met in Miami in 2010 while on vacation with friends. Even though they met away from home, they already had one thing in common which was a group of mutual friends from Church. Following their meeting in Miami, they came back to California and started dating. After 6 years of dating, George proposed to Megan in Lake Tahoe on a hot air balloon ride, overlooking the lake with a beautiful sunrise, and champagne toasts. The couple got married with a stunning ceremony and reception on August 16, 2014 and we're very excited to share all the details and the beautiful photos from Vic Studios

Wedding Tuxedos

Choosing their attire is the main decision we had to make for all the men involved in the wedding. The first step in the process was deciding whether the gentlemen would be wearing tuxes or suits. After some advice and some of our own research we decided to go with rented tuxes. In addition to our 6 man wedding party, we also wanted to rent tuxes for our dads and Serj's younger brothers, a grand total of 11 tuxes! So after researching for a company that would be accommodating to everyone's schedules and make sure that there were no errors, we decided to go with Bridal & Tux 4 U in Glendale.

CHRISTINE'S STORY: MY BRIDAL VEIL

Often times when purchasing a bridal gown, brides will also opt in for a matching veil. When I was purchasing my gown, I didn't fall in love with any of the suggested veils. Because my dress is a very dramatic ball gown, the designer suggested a short veil. The longest veil that was recommended was elbow length but I really had my heart set on a cathedral veil.

TALAR'S STORY: WEDDING DAY DECORATIONS

Decorating the hall is such an exciting part of wedding planning. Lucky for us, Metropol's design is already beautiful and has it's own elegance to which we really didn't need to add much. However, by the recommendation and suggestion of our florist, I started looking for a special head table, specifically a mirror one, that would add an extra touch to our wedding. She had recommended that I look into the services of ZI Events for some options.
