The only thing better than an elegant wedding is an elegant wedding incorporating Japanese and Polish traditions! You might remember Ray and Peter from their adorable engagement we featured a couple months back, today we get to see their fabulous wedding at the Bozarth Mansion photographed by Sarah from Park Road Photography and coordinated by Soiree Event Design. This couple brought together their families from Japan and Poland and had a wedding to remember.
Here’s what Sarah had to say about this unique wedding day:
“Peter’s family emigrated to the US from Poland when he was a small child, and Ray is half Japanese, so they found fun ways to incorporate their heritages into their wedding day.
Ray’s relatives from Japan wore traditional kimonos and guests’ name cards were placed onto folded paper cranes as a symbol of good luck. As a symbol that Ray and Peter will never be in need, Peter’s parents brought freshly baked loaf of bread to the reception, which was lightly sprinkled partially with salt and partially with sugar. The salt signifies that marriage may be difficult at times, but the sugar signifies that it is also sweet. The couple ate a small piece of the bread to predict if their marriage will be difficult or sweet, depending on whether their bite was salty or sweet. Spoiler alert: it will be a sweet one!”
