Lauren and Christian’s wedding in Monterey was a truly elegant event. With family ties to Carmel, the Coast was a perfect location to celebrate their marriage. The weekend started with a rehearsal dinner in Monterey at one of the couple’s favorite restaurants, Il Fornaio. Christian and his Groomsmen remained in Carmel for the wedding morning, while Lauren and her bridesmaids prepared for the day at the Hyatt Regency in Monterey. The entire weekend focused on close family and friends, many who travelled from Fresno to celebrate with the couple. After the beautiful ceremony at the First Presbyterian Church, which was officiated by the family’s “Badveli” (Armenian minister), they were treated to an elegant reception in the ballroom of the historical Hotel Del Monte, which was built in 1880 and is now used as the Naval Postgraduate School. The Del Monte was a resort that hosted guests from Theodore Roosevelt to Ernest Hemingway, as well as many early Hollywood stars, before the Navy requisitioned the building during World War II. The architecture and decor of the reception was classic and beautiful, just like the bride. After dinner and toasts, the ballroom was the perfect place for guests to dance to the band, “Pure Ecstasy,” who played an energetic mix of blues, rock, soul and jazz. It was obvious that family is so important to the couple and it was beautiful to see their marriage and joining of two loving families. Congratulations Lauren and Christian!
