ETHNIC WEDDINGS

Ethnic Wedding Event
I suppose we can define an "ethnic wedding" in respect to where we reside on the earth's globe. For the Los Angeles community at the recent ABC networking meeting we had the fortune to listen to three speakers discuss ethnic weddings in the United States. The three ethnic communities that were chosen for this topic were Persian, Jewish and Indian. The meeting took place at the beautiful Taglyan Cultural Complex in Hollywood, CA. I was thrilled to attend this event in the Taglyan Cultural Complex for two reasons: one, because I was interested in the subject of the lecture and two, is the fact that the center is only a few blocks from where I live and have a residential gallery in Hollywood.

The Taglyan Complex is an Old World style building that can house a variety of events such as weddings, large parties and corporate meetings.The facility has a large ballroom, an impressive foyer, and lovely gardens embracing the back of the building. The sound system is state of the art and the food is definitely worth a five star rating. It is an admirable place to visit and to consider for your wedding venue.


The speakers at the ABC meeting, moderated by Harmony Walton, were Carol Rosen of Party Designs by Carol, Sonia Sharma of Sonia Sharma Events and Nicole Hirsty Saine of Cobalt Events. Each speaker gave us some incite into the cultural distinctions that make up each of these ethnic weddings. Carol covered the Jewish wedding, Sonia the Indian wedding and Nicole the Persian wedding.

And, finally, at this meeting I had the pleasure of sitting next to Rabbi Wendy Spears who is a freelance Rabbi with a warm, funny and charming personality, Carmen Lindner of Gotta Have S"more who had some of her incredible delicious pastries for us to taste, Neema Lodhia of Wedding Store 24 who is part of a team of wedding experts that have helped plan many an Indian wedding, and Denise Hiatt, and Mamie Ware of De Mao Sue Weddings and Events a recently grouped team of wedding coordinators and venue representatives. I left the meeting with a satiated stomach, memories of a fun sociable evening and an expanded knowledge of the "ethnic wedding" in regards to our location on this planet.
