Emma and Hovik were the perfect couple to end our 2006 season. Adorable, sweet and kind, we just loved hanging out with them on their wedding day. Emma was exquisite from head to toe. Just look at those eyes!! It was such a fun day and the huge Armenian families had the time of their lives dancing and singing and showering the couple with love (and dollar bills). You know how Adi and I LOVE weddings with tradition. From the dowry presentations, to the knife laden door guard, to the post-ceremony dove release and then off to the beautifully ornate grand ballroom with several money dances and a fabulous Armenian band. Don’t get me started on the food. The courses never ended!!
Especially memorable was out trip to the Los Angeles County Arboretum & Botanic Garden in Arcadia (despite the goose poo everywhere). If you haven’t visited with your family for a picnic or a walk, go now! What a beautiful corner of paradise! We were so thankful that the weather was kind to us, but even more so that the Ginko trees were bursting full with their yellow leaves.
