This amazing Chaldean wedding at the Manchester Grand Hyatt in California has us speechless. From the gorgeous decor to the amazing venue, if you are looking for Glittery and Glamorous inspiration then look no further.
A note from the photographer: Darline & Noman have quite a story to the aisle! Long before making their relationship official, Darline & Norman met at a wedding they were both in. Darline was a bridesmaid and Norman was a groomsman. Funny thing though is they DID NOT get along!! About 5 or 6 years later they were in ANOTHER wedding together as the Maid of Honor and Best Man. This time it was a little different. At the wedding, they couldn’t help but flirt, reminisce and create amazing memories with their closest friends. After the wedding, Norman pursued Darline and the two became amazing friends and eventually a couple. For Darline’s birthday in 2016, Norman surprised her with a weekend trip to San Francisco. Although he had something else up his sleeve. He proposed to Darline on the rooftop of the Fairmont Hotel and of course, she said yes! Darline & Norman wanted every aspect of their wedding to be unique and high glamour. From the ceremony with only the closest family members (about 30-40) to the 500 guest wedding reception, Darline & Norman honored their culture with all their Chaldean traditions. They had it all! The ceremonial crowns that represented Christ & the Church or equality in their relationship – you need one to preserve the other. You will also see the Kalila (white bow), which means “crown”, tied to Norman’s arm at the reception. This bow signifies that the groom is taking leadership as the head of his family. If the perfect combination of modern glamour and valued traditions wasn’t enough, a 7-foot robot made an appearance on the dance floor at the end of the night for no reason at all! Darline & Norman’s wedding is a night everyone will remember for a lifetime.
