“I’ve got my love to keep me warm.” ~ Irving Berlin
Winter wedding bliss with a dusting of snow to feature today. The most darling celebration, drenched in flowers in homage to traditional Japan with all the modern trimmings. From that stunning black wedding Kimono, to the groom & striking red umbrella. An epic entrance, a first dance for all, Jimmy Choos, Tiffany’s, that amazing gown, bridal rugby tackles & cake toppers with minds of their own. It was love & laughter overload. All at one of our favorite venues, the spectacular Tokyo American Club.
We simply love it here, our unexpected home base for sure. The world-class team gives us tremendous support, respect and the freedom to be able to tell our wedding stories the way we see them. With most importantly (almost!) full access. Even with the whirlwind wedding pace. And the freedom for the bride & groom to have their story told in their way – unique to them. No formula, no set plan, always unfolding beautifully real & elegantly. Nothing is ever too difficult and they always go above and beyond for the couple, the guests & for us. And this wedding was such a reflection of this. The terrace covered with snow, no trouble. Trace has the TAC team shoveling it clear in under 10 mins. The timeline too tight for photos, no trouble, it’s adjusted and we shoot later. The incredible Hair & Make-up team will work with us and understand the beauty of the transformation story. Our wedding planner is a dream. The best wedding planner in Japan. We love it when the staff see us taking a photo, which they are obviously in, and they quietly, unobtrusively move out of frame. We notice it all and are so grateful. You can tell they care… You can tell they care for the couple. And for excellence. All this combines to make the stories sparkle with our pj style in mind. And it is such a departure from what we often encounter – where so many places enforce outrageous restrictions/fees, no access to getting ready (or just no access at all), no time at all for portraits or natural family photos and a general apathy & absolutely no understanding of the importance & value of photography. Or what the Art of Wedding Photography is. Such a breath of fresh, sweet air to work with like-minded couples & remarkable venues. Having had so many experiences this past year we just simply wanted to put it our there. TAC Bridal team… 37 Frames loves you. Let Wedding Season reign…(or snow) we don’t mind. Read more →
