Today’s luxe wedding in California will leave you feeling #sparkedbylove. This glamor filled wedding is quite literally sparkling (peep the last photo by Rene Zadori Photography) and has all the white decor we could ever dream of! Le Jolie Events planned the party of the century from a lush heart shaped floral installation at the ceremony to the custom hashtag signage we are crossing our fingers that there’s some leftover cake from the massive tiered wedding cake just so we can say we were there. If luxury is your love language, then you’re in the right place!
How did you meet?
Areg is my brother’s closest friend so the first time we actually met was at my brother’s 21st birthday. He was 20 and I was 16. We had no idea that we would start dating exactly 10 years after that.
Describe the moment when he proposed
It was so magical. We had only been dating for 4-5 months (when you know, you just know). We were on the rooftop of EP LP and I actually thought we were walking into someone else’s proposal. Without even realizing, I walked into a heart shape made out of flowers. I was taken back by the beautiful decor that was done for the proposal with the marry me sign floating in the air across the rooftop and the stunning flowers in every corner. As I turned around after admiring everything he was already down on one knee asking me to be his forever. I of course said yes!! At that moment our friends and family popped out from hiding in the back of the rooftop! We celebrated all night! I can’t believe my husband had been in front of me for 10 years and I had no clue!
Describe your wedding planning experience
We absolutely loved planning our wedding! Thankfully, our tastes were similar so we had no difficulties in planning and making decisions. It took a lot of time and patience, but working together along with our vendors made our dream wedding come to life. Some advice I would like to give to brides is have fun planning!! There are times it can get extremely overwhelming, but don’t ever forget the reason as to what you’re planning for! It’s ok if things go wrong the day of, just remember that everyone is there to support their unconditional love with you and your husband and that as of that day, you get to spend the rest of your live with the person you love most! We’d like to give a special thanks to our coordinator, Christina, who worked with us through every step of the way and was always making sure we were calm and at ease. She was truly a blessing in helping us get organized and made sure every little detail was taken care of. We’re so happy we chose her to be our coordinator!
What are some of your favorite moments from your wedding day?
Where do I begin? One of the many moments I will always remember and cherish is the look my husband gave me the second he saw me in my wedding dress. It made me so emotional and overwhelmed with joy. We couldn’t wait until the moment we said I do. Another moment I will always remember is when I was walking down the aisle. All I remember was looking directly at my husband and his big smile. I did not realize there was about 200 people around us about to watch us exchange our vows. Once I turned to my husband to say I do, I noticed everyone around us at that point. It was such a beautiful moment.
Describe your experience with finding your wedding gown
I always thought finding a wedding dress would be easy, but it was quite difficult! There are so many choices! I went to every store possible, but found my beautiful dress at Kaoza in Glendale. Everyone kept telling me you will know it’s the wedding dress the second you put it on. I couldn’t agree more! The second I put it on it felt like it was the one! Then and there I stopped looking for a wedding dress. I took so many pictures of the dress and kept looking at it everyday up until the wedding day.
Wedding reception design theme
I would describe our wedding theme as dreamy, magical and whimsical. Our inspiration came from several nights of pondering at pictures and thinking what we could do to make our wedding a dream come true. We took bits and pieces from every picture we saw and every thought that crossed our minds, and just did what we felt to be the best.
