“Every spring is the only spring — a perpetual astonishment.” ~ Ellis Peters

Kyoto. Spring. Blossoms. Sakura. Breathtaking. A sublime canvas for a Pre-Wedding Story. And it truly was a remarkable day, so long in the planning with the loveliest, most darling couple. We are truly so lucky to connect with such a beautiful people… It was a spectacular start with a sprinkling of rain. Kyoto sparkled in the early, early morning. And from then we were all awash all day, with blossoms simply everywhere we went. It doesn’t get more Spring than this, more iconic, more Japan, more drenched in blossoms and love and simply joy. It was endless smiles and happiness all day from our fabulous team. And even with the tremendous crowds (which believe us were there in droves…) Claire & Kenneth were in their own world. A day just for them, from gowns, to kimono, to twilight in the backstreets, in the floating world with blossoms that Kyoto reveals for just the shortest, sweetest time… Read more

“Even in Kyoto…I long for Kyoto”. ~ Basho

Kyoto…a breathtakingly beautiful city, drenched in history, a soul place for sure and at this time of year ablaze with blossoms, blossoms, blossoms. So it was truly the perfect backdrop for this stunning destination wedding which first started with an Engagement Story. A wedding where family, friends & loved ones from all over the world came together to celebrate. Amazingly enough no one from Kyoto. Which made it even more special. A hidden venue, tucked away in the heart of the city, in the shadow of pagodas, shrines and early blooms. It was stunning from start to finish, the gown, the florals, that bridal party…with just the loveliest couple, a dream to be part of their story. So much love, so much heart, so much soul, so very Kyoto. Read more

“Between our two lives there is also the life of the cherry blossom.” ~ Matsuo Basho
Kyoto is always unforgettable and takes you someplace else, lost in time and history and story. And it’s always, always the perfect canvas for a love story. Perhaps none more lovely than this one. It started with an Engagement Session amid the icons – bamboo grooves, centuries old structures & those delicate blossoms just here for the shortest, sweetest time. Time together before the wedding the very next day which we’ll feature soon – a truly spectacular affair – in this ever remarkable world… Read more

“Trust your heart if the seas catch fire, live by love though the stars walk backward.”
– E.E. Cummings

An epic, Japanesque Pre-Wedding to start 2016… in again, one of our very favorite places… Kyoto is always calling. This time in winter. And for sure it was freezing… but love & laughter kept us all more than warm. From the ever peaceful zen bamboo forest to the quintessential backstreets. It’s the perfect place to roam, get lost and found & fall in love even more. A story that writes itself, made even more special with just the most beautiful couple. With those stunning gowns, an iconic garden, streams of light, early blossoms and all the moments in between, it had everything a wedding story prelude needs…

“I love you and that’s the beginning and end of everything.” ~ F. Scott Fitzgerald

A beautiful wedding featuring today, from late last year, with simply the loveliest couple & their wonderful families & friends. At the quintessential Hotel New Otani It was a late Fall day, with a mist of rain. Just perfect to light up at the end of the reception. Stunning gowns, a perfect bridal party, a flash-mob we are all still in awe of and so much more. It was a celebration of love & life with a quick stop to play in the Tokyo lights on the way to the fabulous Nijikai at the Roppongi Hills Club. Floating above the city there were games, an epic surprise bungee video (now, that’s LOVE) and a coming together of soulmates. A most delightful beginning to what awaits. Yasuko & Kei thank you truly for such a wonderful experience leading up to and including your wonderful celebration. We LOVED it all and wish you both a world of love, happiness & joy… Read more

“You can’t blame gravity for falling in love.” ~ Albert Einstein

Come fly with me… A match made in the sky with this beautiful wedding from last year. At one of our favorites venues, TAC, we always know it will be spectacularly fun!!

It was one amazing party from start to finish… with a Nijikai to follow. A perfect flight plan for life… Thank you both for a truly wonderful experience!! Read more

Lost in Translation Inspired, Park Hyatt Tokyo Wedding

“We were together. I forget the rest.” ~ Walt Whitman

A stunning wedding to feature today. As simple and as everything as that. From our first planning meeting months ago in Tokyo we knew this wedding would be epic. A beautiful couple, who knew what they wanted, from another equally beautiful couple who also never compromised & whose wedding we were so honored to be part of a few years ago. We love it when it all comes full circle. And feel like our clients are also our people… Rena & Ged, your celebration was beyond fabulous. In the perfect quintessential Tokyo Hotel…the one and only Park Hyatt. The Lost in Translation theme was perfectly translated…from the breathtaking details, those remarkable florals, that Oscar de la Renta gown, the clutch (omg) & darling bridesmaids we adore. A church filled with candles, a blessing direct from the Pope and all the moments in between. Plus a brief chance to photograph in the iconic New York Bar, after much, much negotiation…and the shortest window of time…It all came together to weave a love story 52 floors up, floating over the city where family & friends from literally all over the world collided. With a dance party to end all others. That honestly is probably still going on…somewhere. And yes, an ice luge, LIT Signature cocktails, and more dancing, planking featured quite a lot by the end & first dance to swoon over. A spectacular start to begin an equally amazing life together…Lost in love always… Read more

We are firmly in Japan for the last couple of weeks left in 2015 & fully into our peak Fall season. Such a stunning time of year here. While Fall explodes around us we venture back to Summer in Hong Kong and a quick Engagement Session just before KC & Josh’s epic Four Season’s Hong Kong Wedding.

Thank you truly for just going with everything…it’s a night we won’t soon forget… To love and iconic Ferris Wheels… Read more
