Chris and Anashae met in 2008 at an event Chris was hosting and started dating ever since. Four years later, Chris proposed to Anashae and they began planning their fairytale wedding. On January 31, 2015, the couple got married at St. Leon Armenian Cathedral followed by a beautiful all white reception at Palladio Banquet Hall. We spoke to the couple and we're excited to share all the details of their stunning wedding.
Last weekend, one of Hollywood's hottest couples, Sofia Vergara and Joe Manganiello, tied the knot in Palm Beach, Florida. Surrounded with friends and family, the couple began celebrating throughout the weekend and wed on Sunday, November 22, at the Breakers Resort. Their stunning wedding was filled with beautiful floral decor, celebrity guests, performances, amazing fashions, and lots of romance.

From the morning of the wedding, there are always activities, appointments, celebrations, even unexpected events and time changes that occur. Therefore, in order to feel calm,, organized and avoid forgetting important things, it is important for every bride and groom to plan ahead and eliminate any last minute tasks on the day of their wedding. We've featured a checklist for you to utilize prior to your big day.
1. Wedding Day Emergency Kit:
Pack a wedding day emergency kit! This should include bobby pins, hair pins, band aids, hair spray, gel, baby wipes, stain remover, double sided tape, hemming tape, tissues, and touch up makeup.

For the last couple weeks, I've been researching wedding cake shops. I requested quotes from a couple of different vendors in order to help make a decision. After all the research, the one that stood out to me was Cake Studio LA. Sonia designed the cake I loved while maintaining my budget.

Cake Studio's designs are unlike any other but that's only half of what makes her cakes so desired. When she sent us her menu we had such a hard time deciding on the four we would try. Everything sounded so delicious. At the end we decided on Chocolate Dipped Strawberry, Mocha-licious, Praline Cloud and Strawberry Short Cake.
We are very excited to feature Ishtar and Lawrence's fairytale wedding. One glance at the beautiful photos of the newlyweds left us wanting more! So we spoke with Memorable Moments Event Planning and they shared all the details of this picture perfect wedding.
Ishtar Issa & Lawrence Mansour met in 2009 through their involvement in many humanitarian organizations to aid Assyrian Christians in Iraq. Upon their meeting, Ishtar and Lawrence knew they would spend the rest of their lives together, but the two put a hold on marriage in order to finish Law School. Christmas Eve of 2014, Ishtar was in her room when she overheard one of her favorite songs, John Legend’s “All of me” glaring from the backyard. She ran downstairs, opened the curtains to find a winter wonderland with “will you marry me” labeled in big Christmas lights. A long aisle way awaited her with past memories of the 6 years they had shared and at the end of the aisle was her prince charming waiting to seal the rest of their lives together with a special engagement ring!
Flower girls have a special place in every wedding as they pave the way for the bride! Traditionally, the flower girls toss flowers from their baskets as they walk down the aisle. Recently, we've seen different trends and alternatives for flowers and props. Here are our favorites.
Instead of carrying a basket, have your flower girls carry a single stem of a similar flower to your bridal bouquet. For example Alliums, Peony and Dahlia are popular choices.

Speeches have always been a major part of weddings. Whether it's a prepared speech for the audience or simple congratulations, everyone wants to leave their heartfelt messages for the newlyweds. However, due to time constraint, usually 1 to 2 people are given the opportunity to give a speech. Then, the bride and groom spend a while going to every table to say their thanks as their guests give them their blessings and pass on special wishes. Unfortunately, not all of them are captured nor remembered! We recently came across SpeechBooth, which is a great way to save these speeches and allow everyone at the wedding to pass on their special, fun, and even silly messages.
Fall 2016 Bridal Fashion Week just wrapped up setting a romantic mood for the season! The designers presented collections that were sensual, feminine, refined, elegant, and most of all light and simple! A few months ago, we shared with you the 13 Bridal Fashion Trends for Spring 2016. Many of the Spring trends continued to Fall but were redefined to better fit the Fall Bride.
Some of the major trends for Fall 2016 include floral appliques, lace, beading, embroidery, pearls, petals, bows, sheer and corset bodices. In addition, full skirts, cropped tops, plunging necklines, high neck bibs, off-the-shoulder, mid length dresses, and removable skirts dominated the runways. Designers incorporated dense beadwork with weightless tulle, organza, and chiffon fabrics or padding and boning with layers of tulle to achieve the simple and light theme for the collections.
This weekend, the lovely couple Star and Zhebo got married on Saturday, October 17th. While we normally love to share wedding stories and photos, this week we are thrilled to feature Star's bridal shower. Star’s Bollywood theme bridal shower was fun, unique, and simply stunning! We absolutely love when people incorporate a unique theme as part of their event, so we interviewed Star to learn all about her gorgeous and unique Bollywood themed bridal shower. We adored every detail and are very excited to share with you the inspiration behind the theme, the design elements, the games and the traditions incorporated!

Before we share photos and details of this gorgeous shower, we wanted to introduce to you the couple. Every wedding begins with a love story and Zhebo and Star have theirs! The two went to school together. They were friends in high school, but never anything more. They lost touch after high school and happened to meet at work years later. They became good friends again, and before they knew it, they became inseparable. As Star jokes, so she let him marry her! Interestingly, they are polar opposites with uncompromising love and respect for each other! They have both made such progress in life since meeting each other and can’t wait for all the more to come in the future. They are excited to begin this new journey together. Marriage won't be the end of anything; Instead the beginning of everything.
