Johnny + Dima

by Stephanie Dana

Johnny and Dima got married on October 24th at St. George’s Church and their reception was at at Anoush. This wedding had so many different traditions, I especially enjoy all the money throwing at the Bride and Groom during the first dance. Here are a few I love:

It is so sweet when best friend’s tear up at the sight of the bride.

All photos of the guys getting ready are by my associate Renee.

All the guys wore Vans.

It is tradition for the Groomsmen to shave the Groom.

Johnny’s family came over to Dima’s family’s house to take her away in the limo. There was so much dancing and singing, and so many people, it was really fantastic to watch. I am not sure what exactly was being said, but there were alot of happy tears.

I love Dima’s blinging bow ring.

On our way to my surprise, I had no idea where we were going. There were so many Pelicans, and the water was very clear.

Can you see the Hummingbird?

“From November to March, monarchs from east of the Rockies converge on oyamel firs high in the mountains of Michoacan, Mexico. Meanwhile, all the monarchs west of the Rockies fly south and west to the U.S. coast, to the last stand of pine, eucalyptus or cypress before the winds they ride blow out to sea. They fly and float on wind currents, covering from 40 to 100 miles a day. They descend on California each November in clouds of orange. Here are 10 places in California to see thousands of the butterflies.” —LA Times

One of the many photos I have that my Grandma gave me. This was taken in her backyard, where she still lives.
