On Sunday, I drove to meet Philip and Carmel at the Marriott Hotel in Burbank. Everyone stayed at the same hotel, since the majority of the bridal party flew in from Sacramento, including Carmel and Philip. It was a fun day for everyone, including myself. Carmel was in her suite getting ready in company of the brides-maids. Everyone looked incredible as they exited the hotel. Outside the hotel a limousine was waiting and they all drove to the Pacific Palms Resort in the City of Industry, where Carmel and Philip had the first look at each other, before the ceremony. After the first encounter, we then had all of the family members photographed. The religious ceremony was at St. John Coptic Church in Covina. It was a beautiful church. At the concluding the ceremony, Philip and Carmel greeted all of the guests that came to the ceremony. Then after we all enjoyed a wonderful reception at the Anoush Glenoaks Ballroom in Glendale. The ballroom was decorated with beautiful arrangements of red roses at each table, Food, cookies, tea, all kinds of delicious food.
Some of my favorites.
