It’s taken me exactly three months to write this post. An entry filled with so much emotion and content I can hardly contain myself. Yup, our wedding #TwoEmsWed is finally here for you to see!
August 13th marks exactly three months of marriage…and I really can’t believe it…I’m married! May 13th flew by leaving behind the sweetest, most cherished memories and moments of my life. Everything was perfect and I have my friends, family and vendors to thank for that!
We started the morning at The Charlie Hotel in West Hollywood, where our bridal party and immediate family gathered to kick off the day. The girls drank rose in Love Ophelia robes while the boys put on their striped matching socks and had a few beers.

I wore the Elysia Dress by Hayley Paige, a stunning halo headpiece from Eden Luxe Bridal and shoes (that are now so brown I can never wear them again) by Aquazzura.
My hair and make-up was done by the incredible Melos Touch and my peony bouquet by Arte Floral.
Emin wore a custom suit by J.B.Clothiers.

We had our first look at the Charlie Hotel while our friends and family watched from the suite windows. It was a moment straight out of a classic Disney film.

We then headed to the Pasadena Princess c/o Wedding Estates for photos before our ceremony. The grounds of this estate were unlike anything I had seen before. I felt like I was at a Chateau in Paris.

Our ceremony was next and Emin and I decided to have a semi-traditional Armenian wedding so we got married at an Armenian Catholic Church in Glendale.

In true Armenian fashion our wedding was filled to the brim with food, alcohol and music. Our reception took place at Palladio Banquet Hall and the theme was inspired by Ralph Lauren’s Spring 2017 Runway Show. The backdrop beautifully crafted by Arte Floral was filled with orchids and tons of greenery.
Our wedding was coordinated by the lovely ladies at Fancy That! Events and the stationary was created by Cordially Invite including our Thank You cards placed on each seat with a quote that read “You are my Today and all of my Tomorrows”.
Everything was perfect.
