Wedding Feature: Armen & Stephanie

In our next few posts of featured weddings from 2011 & 2012, we thought it only appropriate to begin with our very own Stephanie Jelladian {now Bedrosian} as one of the beautiful featured brides!

Being that we are wedding professionals, the expectation was set high when Stephanie and Armen got engaged in November 2010! Introducing this extravagant celebration was nearly the most important. Taking note of the traditional Armenian Church ceremony, the desire to encompass the Armenian language and to capture the opulence of this event were inspiring details that guided Gina as she began sketches for this invitation design. Once the invitations were mailed, personal notes and phone calls came rolling in with the buzz about the wedding...the excitement was overwhelming! From the china and table linens to dinner selections and table decor - Love was in the details displayed throughout every element of this celebration!

Stephanie and Armen were married on November 19, 2011 at Holy Trinity Armenian Apostolic Church with their reception following at the Holiday Inn Downtown in Fresno, California. The day was rich with Armenian tradition - from the morning festivities and the traditional wedding ceremony to the breaking of china and evening entertainment. Their bridal party of 24 offered a tower of anticipation as Stephanie and Armen finally entered the ballroom surrounded by the professional Armenian dance troupe, who dazzled the guests during dinner. The Armenian and American bands each provided unbelievable entertainment to family & friends who danced the night away.

Every moment was unforgettable. Only eight months have passed since the treasured memory of this evening and we remember it everyday! In our business, we have the joy of experiencing the excitement brides and their families feel leading up to the wedding - it was so thrilling to have experienced that joy first hand at the celebration for Stephanie and Armen. A big thanks to the people and vendors who made this beautiful event come together:
