Linda and Daron knew eachother since the school years. They have dated for a while back then, but later broke up and haven’t seen eachother for years.
One day when Linda was walking in the streets of Istanbul, saw Daron from a distance. The same night she sent him a message to say hi. That’s how their story picked up from where it was halted.
On a beautiful summer day in Istanbul, Linda and Daron were married in Uc Horan Armenian Church in Beyoglu, Istanbul. Here is the story and the photographs of that lovely wedding day.
Linda had her hair and make-up done in her home, accompanied by her mother and sister.
When it was her mother’s time to get her make-up done, Linda and her sister were watching her carefully.
Of course they were distracted a few times 🙂
But the spotlights were on Linda that day. When she put on her wedding dress, her mother just stood there and watched with excitement.
As part of the Turkish traditions, she wrote the names of single girls on the soles of her shoes.
There were some emotional moments too. Before leaving home, Linda and her family could not stop the happy tears.
Linda arrived at the church before the guests, and headed directly to the waiting room.
There was excitement and chaos in the waiting room. Families and friends were there to see Linda before the ceremony, and also to fix their appearance.
Daron was waiting in the church, fixing his eyes on the door to see Linda for the first time.
The two bridesmaids glided through the door like beautiful angels.
Linda’s uncle walked her into the church.
… and handed her to Daron. The couple walked together between the guests.
… and married with a beautiful ceremony.
After the ceremony was over, they left the church for Sait Halim Pasa Yalisi where the reception would be held.
During the cocktail hour, they had their portraits taken in front of the glorious backdrop of Sait Halim Pasa Yalisi and the Bosphorus.
… and it was time for the couple to take the stage…
… for the first dance…
After accepting the good wishes from the guests, Linda stepped inside again to get her wedding dress to the “dancing configuration”.
They celebrated their new life toghether with their loved ones all night long.
Linda and Daron, I wish you to have many happy moments like these for the rest of your lives.
