This sunny, beautiful day at the Wigwam Resort was perfection for Karen and Varouj to become husband and wife! Karen looked so classic in her Allure Bridal gown and Varouj was quite the handsome groom in his custom suit. I can’t get over the overwhelming emotion pouring out of Varouj as he saw his bride walking down the isle, arm in arm with her dad. Fighting the tears till he couldn’t fight them any longer then finally gave way to them, wiped his eyes as she approached him. Just before the vows, Karen’s dad greeting him with a hug and took his seat. These two shared so many “private” moments like no one was watching.
The centerpieces were very personal for Karen and Varouj. Each table included a variety of books, including “The Count of Monte Cristo”, “The Human Comedy”, “The Three Musketeers” and “Harry Potter” just to name a few. The guests were encourage to take a book home, read it and pass it on, exchange it and enjoy another one. Such a great idea! Congratulations to you both and thank you for allowing me to celebrate such an amazing day with you both!!!
The Wigwam Resort is a historical property that was originally built as an organization house for the cotton ranchers in 1918. It first opened to guests with just 24 rooms in 1929. The resort currently has over 300 guest rooms set on 440 acres of lush grounds, shady with towering palms and sweet with the fragrance of 8,000 rose bushes. The perfect place for a wedding.
