MANIFA'S STORY: THE PROPOSAL

In Manifa's first Bride's Story blog, she told us all about her and Emin and how their relationship started. As she mentioned, Emin's love for gambling would play a big role in his proposal. Find out how it all happened as Manifa shares their sweet proposal story: 

Every girl dreams of her perfect proposal. Some want something grand and majestic, others prefer something low key and romantic. I always just wanted my proposal to be a surprise. I knew that when Emin proposed to me it would be unexpected, extremely creative, and personal.

My proposal was easily the cutest thing Emin has ever planned. It fit our personalities perfectly! I couldn't have asked for anything better.

DIANA'S STORY: OUR WEDDING

Garen's and my saga began on a rainy fall day. It was our first date and we had decided to go to the Natural History Museum (yes, we are self-described nerds). We realized that we had something special when what was supposed to be a nice leisurely date at the museum, ended almost eight hours later with a trip to two museums, lunch, and dinner. 

After some time dating, we got engaged in May 2018. By June, we had decided that we were going to have our own Armenian wedding.

DIANA'S STORY: OUR WEDDING DAY FLOWERS

Can't believe our wedding has already passed! Garen and I recently got our wedding photos so I can't wait to share my wedding blog post soon. Until then, I'll start off with my favorite wedding topic - flowers! As a woman who absolutely loves flowers, my wedding flowers were a top priority. My amazing wedding florist, Giah Events Studio, and I worked for months on using the perfect flowers and other decor to create the right ambiance for both the wedding ceremony and reception.

DIANA'S STORY: OUR WEDDING FLOWERS

Roses, ranunculus, dahlias, coxcombs, lisianthus, amaranthus, anemones…and my centerpiece floral arrangement list goes on, and on, and on. 

Like many brides, I absolutely love flowers and picking a florist was no easy feat. When I began my search, I knew two things – (1) what floral arrangements I generally liked (the diaphanous look, typically achieved with high petal count flowers), and (2) that I wanted a romantic look for the wedding. 

With the above in mind, I went on my quest for a florist. After weeks of searching, I came across Giah Events Studio. Although I initially had some hesitation because of their location (Huntington Park), I was reassured by my contact at Giah Events, Hong, that they were more than happy to work on a wedding in Pasadena. And I have since learned that they have worked on countless Los Angeles area weddings, including many Armenian weddings in the Glendale/Pasadena area.
