Michael & Raffy couldn’t have asked for a more picture-perfect day to celebrate their love and eternal commitment to one another. Their modern glam wedding in black and white came together beautifully at Knollwood Country Club in California, but there’s so much more to share about this special day.
One of the grooms, Raffy surprised his sisters and groomsmaids by letting them all walk down the aisle in gorgeous wedding dresses from Cocomelody, and the results are stunning.

Groomsmaid sisters in wedding dresses
From the grooms: Long ago before we met, my husband knew that he would one day get married and knew exactly who to ask as his groomsmaids (his sisters!). When that moment happened, he wanted each of them to wear a wedding gown so they could each have that moment to walk down the aisle. It was the most magical day ever. Both for me and my husband. Both in awe of the beauty of each of his sisters wearing gorgeous gowns. It only took one brave moment for my husband, one email to Cocomelody to make his dreams for his sisters and for our wedding come true. And the rest is history. Watch them shop for their bridesmaid dresses here.
Everything was perfect! We had great weather and all the guests came 30 min in advance so we were ahead of schedule. My groomsmaids felt like it was their wedding day too in their Cocomelody gowns. There wasn’t a dry eye in the house. Everyone was crying at our heartfelt ceremony.
Celebrating true LOVE
It is a blessing to find a lifetime partner and an even more blessing to be living in a country that recognizes equal rights and opportunities. We will be forever grateful for the amount of love and support we got and still getting from our family and friends.
