Saratoga Wedding

I+D I Hakone Gardens

The magical Hakone Gardens in Saratoga, CA set the stage for the wedding of I +D. When guests arrived they were encouraged to explore the tranquility of the enchanted grounds before settling in to watch the couple exchange their vows. A ceremony that acknowledged the past as the path that led to the present, just a stop on the way to the future for I +D. Family, tradition, and honor were the three pillars that marked the auspicious day. As the ceremony carried on, the couple joyfully acknowledged their parents over and over. The newlywed’s travel obsession was uniquely acknowledged, each dinner table represented a country they had visited. Guests ate cupcakes and mochi for dessert as the new husband and wife made a grand entrance to the dance floor. Their first dance, well practiced in previous days and just before they entered the dance floor came together flawlessly. All is all, it was an intimate and breathtaking day! Congratulations!
