japanese kimono wedding wear

      This was one amazing multicultural wedding! Amy is part Japanese, part Jewish, and Carlos’ family comes from Central America, so there was so much fusion happening in one place. The couple wore kimonos for their ceremony and changed into a western-style dress and a guayabera for the reception. They incorporated a Jewish glass-breaking at the end of their ceremony and danced the hora later on! It was such a blast. Here are a few of my favorite moments and details from Amy and Carlos’ amazing blended fête!
