Today, we have this adorable Japanese inspired wedding styled shoot that draws from the culture but with a modern and eclectic twist. Being that Henny (Indonesian) and I (Vietnamese) are both Asian, when we ever have the opportunity to share our love for our Asian brothers and sisters, we always jump on the chance to feature it. I’m going to let the photographer, Jennifer Fujikawa walk us through and have her share their inspiration behind such a culture rich shoot.
The bride’s dress was handmade and custom designed by Marisol Aparicio. She drew inspiration from Japanese kimonos and balanced the design to appeal to our elegant everyday brides.
Other unique ideas include our fun floral frame, zen garden escort cards, and Black Kimono Soap favors from Etsy vendor Tokyo Factory.
Our florals echo the style of Japanese “ikebana” and cherry blossom branches. Dandelion ranch did a wonderful job creating arrangements that were both visually stunning and soft to the eye.
Our main table scape design is playful, modern and elegant with CB2 dinnerware sitting atop of slate chargers.
