TALAR'S STORY: LET THERE BE CAKE!

It seems as though wedding cakes have become a sort of competition: how many tiers, how many flavors, the design, etc. I've even seen some upside down, albeit beautiful, cakes. I knew that I always wanted a smaller cake, something simple yet elegant, plain yet delicious. So naturally, I started my search, like most others, on Pinterest. I searched and searched and never found a cake that I fell in love with. I even put Serj to work to find a design he liked, and well, he came back with a Batman cake!

TALAR'S STORY: WEDDING INVITATIONS

I've always wanted my invitations to be unique and different. I used Harsanik.com's wedding directory and looked up a few vendors. After meeting with a couple, I was given a recommendation to contact Creative Works Designs. I e-mailed Sherry and immediately set an appointment. When I arrived to her adorable shop in Burbank, there were so many samples, and different options and every single one caught my attention.

TALAR'S STORY: MORNING OF THE WEDDING

Based on Armenian tradition, often the morning of the wedding day becomes it's own spectacle. The way I understand or know it to be is that Serj, his family and ushers will be getting ready and essentially pre-partying at our home. I will be getting ready at my parent's house with my mom, sister-in-law, aunts, family and friends. Then, once Serj and his group are ready, they will make their way to my parent's house where the morning festivities will begin.

TALAR'S STORY: MY MOST IMPORTANT WEDDING DAY VENDOR

There's just one person who has been helping me plan my wedding well before I was even engaged. In fact, she happens to be my most important wedding day vendor. You see, I'm a type one diabetic, and although during my every day this isn't that big of a deal, for my wedding day, it's the most important "deal". When brides plan their "day-of" events, most will tell you that you simply can't account for what to eat and when you will be given a chance to actually eat a meal. For me, this isn't an option.

TALAR'S STORY: HAIR AND MAKEUP

With my frizzy, unruly, and extremely thick hair, it’s practically impossible to find a hairstylist who can do a good job. At least until I found Nare! A friend of mine had made an appointment with Chateau De Luce for her bridal shower, and I went along. No one, and I mean no one, has been able to pull of what Nare can. Once after, I had my hair done for my parent’s surprise party and again it looked flawless. So when it came to making an appointment and deciding who will be doing my wedding hair, there was no doubt in my mind, that it would be Nare!
