Real Wedding - Mayumi & Steven

We were introduced to Mayumi and Steven by Danielle from White+White Weddings and Events.  It is always such a pleasure to work with Danielle and her team.  Mayumi had so many incredible ideas for her flowers and styling.  We worked on creating a real fusion for her of traditional japanese culture and old world romance.  The flowers included, roses, ranunculus and blushing brides with dusty miller to highlight.

From the bride...
After seeing many wonderful ideas, I realized that one of the most important things was to infuse my culture, Japanese tastes. I always love beautiful Japanese origami and Chiyogami papers (papers of different patterns and color layers). To reflect Japanese culture using origami papers, we started a 10-month BIG & FUN DIY project – fold 1000 colorful cranes and put them through strings. In Japan, it is said that holding 1000 cranes makes our wish come true (happy and long marriage).Thanks to my mum and friends, we could completely finish just few weeks before the wedding. With the help of our planner, they were hung at the pre-drinks space. Guests had a fun time taking photos with the poraloid camera for the guest book in front of our proudly made 1000 cranes.We also made Chiyogami paper cranes for each guest on their napkin. As bon bons, we prepared macaroons filling the wooden Sake Box that was tied with Japanese patterned ribbons sourced from Japan and a name tag on each one.
Because of various colors of cranes, we had softy-pastel colored spring flowers such as ranunculus, david austin, blushing bride and cherry blossoms. It was also important for us to incorporate with vintage chic style and personal touches. We were lucky enough to meet talented stylists, planners and vendors who introduced vintage vases, centerpieces, birdcages, tealight bowls, seating charts, welcome board and our “MUST ITEM” gorgeous chandelier. They were all incorporated in the reception restaurant. Big thanks to our photographer Karen, we could add a personal touch on table numbers of engagement portraits. Since we saw her photos, we could not think about other photographers. Her natural and delightful photos remind us a beautiful wedding and we enjoy seeing wedding photos every day!
