Lalig & Jamil Wedding : Montebello, Ca
Lalig and Jamil had such a fun wedding in Montebello, Ca with a beautiful wine, navy and gold color palette. But what made this day extra special, was all of the fun Armenian traditions throughout the day. While they did not make the day hundred percent traditional, Lalig and Jamil did add in some traditions to represent their beautiful culture. Before the ceremony, Lalig’s brother placed money in her shoe for good luck and with the help of mom, then placed her shoes on her feet. All of her family is also in attendance, and watches on during all of the events. After her shoes are on, Lalig’s veil was circled over her head three times by a happily married woman to bring her marriage luck.
“May you grow old on one pillow," is a a traditional wedding blessing in the Armenian culture, and their ring bearer held a beautiful pillow while carrying candles to represent such. The end of the day was also not without tradition, and traditional food such as dolmas, hummus, babaghanoush, and kabobs was served. The whole array was absolutely gorgeous, and so colorful. What ended the day on such a fun and high note was all of the dancing! There was not a single soul not on the dance floor by the end of the evening, including all of the children as well. It was so much fun to get to experience Lalig and Jamil during their awesome slightly traditional Armenian wedding, filled with elements just for them.
