"Have you ever been to an Armenian wedding?," Megan asked me, back in February.
"No," I said. Then she smiled. Now I know why.
I met Megan during Italian 1, two years ago. She was our S.I. (Student Instructor) She was only one class ahead of us, but was so brilliant that Flavio asked her to help out us beginning Italian students. After that, she took a semester off so we all ended up in Italian 3 together. As you can see, she is gorgeous as well as being brilliant, and very sweet. I was so honored to be invited.
My friend Karen (also from Italian) was invited as well and being that we are both single ladies, we decided to go together. (Much better to go with your friends than some random date guy!)
We were hoping it would be a unique experience and we were not disappointed!
We are, each of us angels with only one wing;
and we can only fly by embracing one another.

When we got to the reception, instead of the usual western "cocktail hour," it was time for tea and a huge assortment of cookies.
Well, I can say without hesitation, I have never seen more people on the dance floor (and they could actually dance!) or more food in my entire life ... weddings or otherwise.
The yogurt dip was so good I wanted to poor the whole thing in my mouth and I probably would have done it, if my digestion hadn't been so crazy lately.
I ate so much and so many different foods that at one point, I turned to Karen and said, "Well, I've had 3 Advil and 7 digestive aids." We laughed so hard and she said "If I have to take you to the ER, what in the world would I tell them you ate?!"
After that, an enormous platter of beautiful fruit came. I had to skip the cake. I was worried I bust the seems of my dress. Well, it wasn't actually even my dress!
Their initials projected over the head table ...
I would suggest that if ever you are invited to an Armenian wedding, GO!
Thanks for including us in your amazing nuptials!
Where there is love there is life.
