SERENA WILLIAMS: "I'M AN HONORARY ARMENIAN"

Recently we featured Alexis Ohanian, Sr. and Serena Williams' gorgeous wedding on our blog. We were honored to have met Alexis Ohanian at the Hustle While You Work event hosted by Open Listings, and pleasantly surprised when Alexis answered our questions about his and Serena's wedding in New Orleans. As if talking to Alexis Ohanian (co-founder of Reddit and now founder of Initialized Capital) was not enough, we loved hearing about his love of Armenian food and the fact that Alexis and Serena chose to serve khorovats at their wedding!

Now, just a few months later, we are thrilled to come across a Twitter post by tennis journalist David Avakian with the following quote from Serena herself:

"I'm married to an Armenian, and I have learned that Armenians are incredibly proud. So I'm learning a lot about the culture. My daughter is half Armenian. I'm an honorary Armenian now, so it makes me feel really good. It's a great, great, great feeling. Yeah I love how proud they are. Some things just happened recently over there [Velvet Revolution]. I'm planning on actually going to go visit there. I don't know when, but I think either this year or next year..."

WE'RE HIRING: DIGITAL MARKETING MANAGER

Hey guys! For those of you who actually read our blog articles, this one is for you! ;) We're growing rapidly and we now have more beautiful wedding, romantic proposal, and traditional engagement stories to share than we can handle! We're honored that so many brides want to share their story with us. But we've fallen incredibly behind and it's time to beef up our team. 

So if you have a marketing background or are interested in learning about technology, analytics, and digital marketing, then this is the role for you. We currently have a part-time position available and we're looking to hire a rockstar. The perks are the work is fun (you must find Armenian weddings fun!), the hours are flexible, and there's no office you need to commute to - work from home, go to a coffee shop, or come to our co-working space in Pasadena. If this is in any way exciting, read on. Or you know someone who would love to do this work, please pass this on to them.  Our ultimate goal is to interview and ideally extend an offer by the end of next week (5/11) so let's see if we can make it happen...

17 IRISH WEDDING CUSTOMS AND TRADITIONS

We love when couples choose to incorporate their culture or wedding traditions on their big day. In honor of St. Patrick's Day, we're sharing some of our favorite Irish wedding traditions!

1. Horseshoe:

Horseshoe symbolizes good luck in many cultures. In Irish tradition, brides carried a horseshoe with them on their wedding day to bring good luck to the occasion and their marriage. Eventually, instead of an actual horseshoe brides started carrying a symbol of the horseshoe. According to the legends, the horseshoe should face up resembling a "U" so that the luck doesn't run out.
