This wedding took place on June 1, 2019.
There is nothing like a home wedding. But especially when that home is a gorgeous garden oasis that supports the picture perfect backdrop for nuptials on the American Riviera.
Turkish-born Hakan and his (now) husband Matthew welcomed guests for a simply elegant celebration of feasting and enjoying the company of those dearest to them. The very next day they were off to a honeymoon in Turkey. We wish them the very best and were delighted to be a part of their special day.
