DIANA'S STORY: OUR WEDDING

Garen's and my saga began on a rainy fall day. It was our first date and we had decided to go to the Natural History Museum (yes, we are self-described nerds). We realized that we had something special when what was supposed to be a nice leisurely date at the museum, ended almost eight hours later with a trip to two museums, lunch, and dinner. 

After some time dating, we got engaged in May 2018. By June, we had decided that we were going to have our own Armenian wedding.

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!

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.
