FEATURED PROPOSAL: TADEH & LIANA

Liana was only 15 years old when she first met Tadeh. But it wasn't until a few years later when the two went to a Hollywood nightclub that the couple reunited and realized they were destined to be together. Their love for each other has withstood time and just a few months ago, Tadeh made Liana's birthday wish come true by proposing! We caught up with Liana and she told us the story of how they first met, then reunited, and exactly how Tadeh proposed. 

Featured Proposal: Tadeh & Liana

Let's start off with a brief introduction of you and Tadeh.

Where should I start? Tadeh has always been a man's man. He is this tough, independent do-it-all but he's actually the most romantic man in the whole world! I'm very kind, loving and bubbly and I think that I level Tadeh out with his seriousness.

They say opposites attract! So how did you and Tadeh meet?

#9: Eduard and Renita's Proposal Story

We love romantic and surprise proposals, so we were thrilled to get the details of Eduard and Renita's proposal story. Eduard knew Renita was suspicious of the proposal happening so he kept throwing her off until she was sure it wasn't going to happen. Eduard surprised Renita with a gorgeous set up in their hotel room with flowers, candles, and balloons. Our favorite part was when Renita peaked outside the balcony to find their close friends and family standing outside waiting to celebrate with them!

MANIFA'S STORY: PICKING OUR CAKE VENDOR

Hey Harsanik readers, it's Manifa again and I'm back with another wedding update. You can catch up on my wedding planning adventures on my blog series: Manifa's Story. I have been waiting and waiting to book this vendor for almost a year and a half and I am FINALLY able to confirm that Emin and I have booked a cake vendor! I'm pretty sure everyone dreams of going cake tasting. I mean it's FREE CAKE that you get to try multiple flavors of until you find the perfect flavor! It was this sweet lovers dream!

Before we even started the fun part of finding our cake I did what I always do; went to the Harsanik directory and searched for Cake & Dessert vendors. I looked at the most reviewed vendors and started making my contact list. I will say that I was a little shocked that many of the vendors wouldn't book for my wedding date a year and a half in advanced, therefore my list sat in my binder for about a year before I could actually go cake tasting! Finally, the day arrived where I could grab Emin and go taste some cakes.

FEATURED WEDDING: SHANT & MARAL

We recently stumbled upon an Armenian wedding in the Bay Area and we knew we needed to know how the bride and groom were able to plan a full Armenian wedding with such limited Armenian vendors. Shant and Maral recently got married and since they live in the Bay Area they knew they had to work a little bit harder to find their Armenian wedding vendors in order to have a traditional Armenian wedding. Maral told us the whole story from how they met, wedding planning, and of course the wedding itself.
