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.

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.

CHRISTINE'S STORY: OUR UNIQUE CENTERPIECES

Flowers have always held a place close to my heart. When I was young, my mom used to make sill flower arrangements for our house and for friends. In high school, my close friend worked at the local florist. I thought what a beautiful line of work. So I started working at the local florist in high school. I realized though, my favorite florals were wedding florals and luckily I got the opportunity to work with a florist that does a lot of weddings. Bardwell's Florist became like my second home and family.

CHRISTINE'S STORY: CHOOSING OUR WEDDING FAVORS

Wedding favors are an easy and simple way to show gratitude for your guests. After all they do to be there for you, you want to show them that you care and that you are thankful. When it came to favors we wanted to stay away from chocolates, which are traditionally used as wedding favors. We wanted to have something that people would not only like but that they would keep.

CHRISTINE'S STORY: TRNDEZ CELEBRATION

Happy Trndez! For those not familiar with this Armenian tradition, we're featuring Christine's blog from 2016 where she explains this Armenian holiday that takes place on February 13th.

Last weekend, Victor and I, celebrated a very special day, Trndez, with our families. Trndez or Candlemas Day is considered to be one of the most loved holidays among newly engaged couples and newlyweds. According to church rituals originating from Ancient Armenia, Christian Armenians create a bonfire which "resembles the Lord's light and warmth". Traditionally, newly engaged or newlyweds jump over the fire symbolizing joy and happiness. Trndez takes place on the evening of February 13th overlapping with Valentine's Day!
