Love is not something that necessarily requires spoken words or elaborate gestures. The most authentic and genuine love stories are those that can be felt just by watching two lovers look into each other's eyes or gently caress the other person's hands. Harumi and Adrian are two soft spoken individuals, but when they're together, there's no denying that they are in the presence of the one with whom they feel the most at ease and happiest.
Harumi and Adrian's beautiful and intimate wedding was full of meticulously personalized touches from rustic handmade center pieces, bridal party bouquets and boutonnieres to wedding decors and wedding favours. When Alex went over to Harumi's place the day before the big event, her very gracious parents offered him some super delicious cookies from their wedding favours that they were excitedly putting together. (Lucky for me, Alex believes that sharing is caring.)
It was a toasty Saturday in the later afternoon of June. Beyond the heavy velvet drapes of Brix and Mortar Restaurant laid the whimsical realm of intricate vines that caressed the courtyard walls, making the ceremony much more intimate. It was like a hidden little secret garden in the middle of a buzzing metropolitan city. Harumi gracefully made her way down the aisle with her father, while Adrian waited nervously and guests welcomed her with bubbles. The beautiful bride was a stunning vision in her lace fit and flare wedding gown adorned with an elongated veil. Adrian and Harumi could barely contain their emotions right from the get-go when their officiant spoke words of love, friendship and commitment. In the evening, family and friends cuddled around the dance floor as Adrian and Harumi wowed the audience in a choreographed first dance.
Early this Fall, Harumi and Adrian, together with Adrian's family, will travel to Japan to continue their wedding celebrations. We are so excited for you guys! Congratulations, Harumi and Adrian. May every day be as sweet as your wedding day.
