A Tokyo Wedding Story…

“Despite the forecast, live like it’s spring.” – Lilly Pulitzer

Japan in any season is sublime…but there’s something about the seasons within the seasons that is just so spectacular. And one of our favorites… is the season of green…when nature explodes in the freshest of colors, one of our very favorite palettes. So it was the most beautiful backdrop for this lovely post-wedding story. In a quintessential Japanese garden, with bridges, teahouses, sweet nooks & cranny’s, some last blooms and all that green…A very special Tokyo morning together with a deluge of rain at the end, a wonderful team, a darling couple and stunning kimonos, so overwhelming beautiful. The very best way to start a honeymoon and a lifetime of love, happiness & stories… Read more

“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

“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 all started with their tremendously entertaining Engagement Session at Haneda (where this spectacular couple met & work), great location, even with guards in tow… Their wedding was equally fabulous… Beautiful gowns, a bridal party we adored, tiffany-blue dresses, lovely families, a ceremony in the shadow of Tokyo Tower on a gorgeous day, an emotional first dance, surprise entrances and much more. 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

Okinawa Pre-wedding & Engagement Photography

“As the ocean is never full of water, so is the heart never full of love.” ~ Unknown

Japan is a land of contrasts. From iconic mountains, to the concrete, extraordinary cities with so many pockets of beauty. We adore it all. The spectacular forests, the cultural assets, the coastlines, the nature & UNESCO sites…But there’s one place we are always waiting to get back to & we haven’t explored nearly enough…Okinawa. It has it all…more or less. Pristine beaches, vibrant culture and stunning natural beauty. So it was such a joy to be part of Akane & Kiyo’s Pre-wedding Story in preparation for their beautiful upcoming November Wedding (we are truly excited for!!). While Tokyo endured incredible deluges, we had nothing but blue skies down south…Palm trees in the breeze and an azure sea…We had a fabulous day together. As is often the case in Okinawa Bridal companies plan the wedding attire part of the day & there can be many restrictions on bringing in outside photographers, but this company kindly allowed us to come in to photograph as well (& we are so grateful). We did have to work around their photographer (great guy but of course not ideal), and their plan (no control of location or timing), but that makes it all even more of a challenge. And despite this we all had a wonderful time, working the light, going rogue when we could (the company kindly let us run away here & there) and making the very most of our time together to tell a story of soulmates with a love of the sea. Akane & Kiyo, thank you truly for an exquisite trip & a darling chapter in your story. We simply cannot wait for what’s next…

We are still Okinawa dreaming… happily we will return several times in 2016 as part of our Pre-Wedding Schedule (all the info is HERE). Until then just like they say down south…we will…’go & come back’ (行じ、めんしぇーびり). Read more

“A successful marriage requires falling in love many times, always with the same person.” ~ Mignon McLaughlin

A lovely Tokyo Celebration to feature today after their beautiful, traditional Miyajima Wedding back in July. With Wedding Season so very, very here it was the happiest start to September for us to see Eri & Akihiro again, a simply extraordinary couple. To continue being part of their story, so filled with light, love & stunning details, it was a fitting finale to the start of their life together. Beautifully casual & relaxed in the heart of the city at a favorite venue Manoir D’Inno. There was incredible food, that iconic tree, the garden drenched in gold as the sun set, that gorgeous gown, an intimate & moving reception surrounded by closest friends & family, candles galore and the city by night to get lost in and fall in love some more… Read more
