We recently connected with Mariam and fell in love with her wedding photos. After a brief chat, we decided to not only feature her and Tigran's wedding but include some of the key events leading up to the big day. Let's just say the photos were stunning and deserve two separate blogs! So we're excited to introduce to you Mariam and Tigran and share with you their romantic proposal story.
3 years after Tigran and Mariam started dating Tigran planned a romantic date to the Huntington Botanical Gardens. He knew Mariam loved cherry blossoms and since they were in bloom it was the perfect spot for a surprise proposal. With Tigran planning many activities before proposing and her mom suddenly planning a last minute party for relatives, Mariam was a little suspicious of something going on in the weeks leading up to the proposal. She explains, "When we got there, Tigran wasn’t behaving like himself. He was quieter than usual and kept looking at his phone. He suggested we go under the cherry blossoms and that’s when my heart started racing. He told me he had something to give me and handed me a book – the same book I had given to him as a gift when we first started dating. I had written him a note on the first page. When he handed it to me, I was confused, until he flipped it to the last page where he had written something for me. I started to read it and immediately knew where it was headed and by the time I finished reading the last sentence, he was down on one knee, asking me to marry him."
How fitting that Tigran used the same little book Mariam gave him in the beginning of their relationship to continue their story. Mariam started their story on the first page, and he continued it on the last.
We asked Mariam if she used Harsanik to plan her wedding and she stated: "I definitely looked through most of the lists on Harsanik.com, and I know that it was most helpful for venue shopping, because there are so many options here in LA that it was overwhelming. At one point we went to ver 8 venues in one day which was way too many! It was also nice to be able to see the blogs from other brides because you can get ideas as well as be inspired and figure out what it is that you really want your wedding to look like."
A few months after their proposal, Tigran and Mariam did their pre-wedding photoshoot with SakoSan Photography. They shared their favorite photos with us. These images are a great representation of their love and magical relationship.
Thank you to Tigran and Mariam for sharing their proposal story with us. We are so excited to be sharing it with our readers as well as bringing their wedding story to our blog! Make sure to keep an eye out for Tigran and Mariam's wedding blog which is coming very soon!
