TALAR'S STORY: CHOOSING A LOCATION

The first question people often ask when they hear you are engaged is, “so when is the big day?” and realistically, the answer is “whenever I find a hall.” At first, Serj and I were very adamant that we wanted to shy away from the typical Armenian banquet hall. Realistically our dream was to get married at Hummingbirds Nest Ranch in Santa Susana. We reserved a date, a random Saturday, then were told that the location had been booked almost all summer for the filming of a show or movie. So we started our search for an outdoor location all over again and our dreams of an outdoor wedding were quickly crushed when we learned about the costs and restrictions associated with those types of locations.

TALAR'S STORY: THE PROPOSAL

In Talar's first blog, we heard the story about how their relationship started. She also mentioned, Serj said if the Kings won at the Stanley Cup Championship, he would propose! Three months later, they were both in for a surprise. Here’s Talar and Serj’s proposal story, from the groom’s perspective! 

There comes a time in a man’s life where dreams turn into reality, especially when you make that choice to wake up from your dream! From our first date on, I knew I was living in a dream in the presence of Talar. I would refer our dates to my friends as being on “cloud 9” and how she would hear the good, the bad and the ugly in my day to day life yet remain very optimistic of my outcomes. She was always a positive and loving presence that I cherished to have week in and week out. That’s when I knew I wanted to turn this into a life long friendship. I say friendship because it’s not just love that keeps us together, but our passion to strive and be a strong presence in our Armenian community and family life.

TALAR'S STORY: HOW IT ALL STARTED

Serj and I met in September of 2013. Our first date included an amazing dinner at Café Santorini in Pasadena followed by drinks at the beautiful Perch in Downtown. Never had I ever had a first date like this… filled with so much laughter, so much smiling, and really a wondering if it was all real. Serj and I are very opposite in many ways, but we’re also alike. We have different tastes in music and movies, but both love sports and spending time with family! It keeps our relationship so very much alive and always interesting.
