Robert and Tierney Vardanian tied the knot at NOOR Pasadena on September 3rd, 2021. This entire day felt straight out of a movie. Everything from the hotel room Tierney got ready in, to the first look, to the open floor dancing at the end of the night felt romantic, magical, and timeless.
Once Robert and Tierney were dressed and ready, we made our way to Pasadena City Hall for their first look. We decided to have this moment take place in one of the many spiral staircases scattered throughout the building because the light was incredible and it was a more intimate setting. With every step and every motion during this moment, these two took my breath away. I kept thinking of Led Zeppelin’s “Stairway To Heaven” lyrics. Visually, it was as if Robert and Tierney were making their way towards the Kingdom of Heaven hand in hand. Honestly, every set up we did at Pasadena City Hall was so stunning. That venue is a photographer’s playground; it’s hard not to take a great photo.
The Vardanian wedding and reception was an absolute blast. Robert is Armenian, so they had a lot of cultural traditions throughout the evening. Another highlight was the open dancing; all of Robert and Tierney’s family and friends danced around them, serenading them with money and good cheer. Several relatives joined hands and danced circles around Robert and Tierney.
