Fascinating how different it is here in the U.S., albeit so very sacred. Happy Ww.

Japanese Traditional weddings are really great. Most Japaneses are forgoing these traditions which is kinda sad.

This is a very nice addition to your portfolio of wedding photography, CK. Great work!

Hi CK, you have taken very nice photographs of some very beautiful people. Of course it their dress we see as so beautiful, both the traditional wearing and those with Western attire.

Happy WW, and thanks for peeking in on Dusty. Dusty is a very nice horse that belongs to our neighbors.

Love the clothes. Everyone looks so serious. I like how the couple are almost smiling in that one shot :0)

Maisie said...

Wow. I just love all those pictures. The bride's and groom's clothing and the red umbrella is very interesting to me. My American cousin is currently living in Japan. His job is to marry Japanese people who want to have an American style wedding. I think that the couple ends up having a traditional Japanese wedding, too.

How beautiful. The bride's kimono is stunning.

I hope that once the formal part of the wedding was over they were able to stop looking so serious and begin having fun.

What wonderful photos. It all looks so serene and formal.

These wedding photos are so elegant and traditional. I like the contrast between these and the photos from your last Wordless Wednesday. Two different facets of Japanese culture. Very nice!

Shelia said...

What beautiful pictures!

I was never able to fully appreciate the beauty of traditional Japanese clothing until I visited Japan a few years ago, which makes these photos all the more beautiful to me.

Happy WW!
