Let it be known: Armenians know how to throw a good party. I mean, wedding. ;) What an experience! It was an honor to second shoot this fabulous Armenian wedding for the talented Jason Chan. I was fascinated by every cultural tradition that came into play – the crowning of the bride and groom, the AMAZING one-man band, the baba ganoush! But in the end what truly blew me away was the dancing. Everybody joined in, young and old. Enjoy: I love the details that set every wedding apart. Marissa’s beautiful dress was unlike any I had ever encountered before. We had a quick moment to take some first look photos by the Berkeley Marina before heading off to the church. I could not get over how cute he was!!! Future heartbreaker.
