An Armenian wedding


From Instagram
And then the wedding. Wow. What an experience... I'm grateful to the family for having in the end invited this Costarican wedding crasher to experience such a magical personal and cultural moment. The wedding took place in a beautiful green area called Aghveran that showed me how different the landscape can be in Armenia. The ceremony took place in an Orthodox Christian Armenian church in a very small village.

The priest really looked scary, I was not used to this. He had a big hat and some really long white beard.



The car was pretty sweet. That's Vahe, the buddy I am in debt for having invited me to Armenia.

As the celebration in the church ends a local band awaits the bride and groom and folks start dancing.

The father of the bride then looks out and calls for the bride and starts the dance off.

There then is a big dance on, a meet and greet and then we step to the celebration hall.

Great shots. It would have been a good number of photos if you have a good camera with you. Nevertheless, they're great shots. I look forward to my sister's wedding. I hope to catch the same great moments with our wedding photographer perth.

This wedding is very beautiful and the photos really captured the bride and the groom's glow. I'm looking for wedding venues oxgordshire to have a simple wedding. Not too flashy. I just want everybody to enjoy our day.

With the natural light and the scenic locations, I'm pretty sure our videography perth studio could make excellent wedding shots for this. Nevertheless, the photos still captured the great moments you guys had. Congrats!

As I've noticed, most of the shots there are all in black and white. I think I saw a collection of that kind in a perth wedding photography gallery studio.

Nice photos. Wedding photos are always great especially if the place has an amazing landscape like those at long island wedding halls.

The photographer did a wondrous job in capturing the wedding's best moments! The scenic view of the long island banquet halls-alike added to the cultural diversity of this Armenian wedding.

Truly, country clubs like these and those at the Mill Pond are great wedding venues. They can accommodate a large number of guests.

I was expecting to see a close up shot of the bride because I want to see the style of her wedding gown. Do you have any pictures of her?
