Japanese Inspired Charleston Wedding In Flavors of Pink & Hanging Cranes

Rounding out the week is the super sweet Japanese themed wedding of Kathy McDonald & Deas Richardson in Charleston, South Carolina!

From Reese Moore:

Japanese-studies majors Kathy and Deas quickly became college sweethearts before moving to Japan to teach. It was in Japan that their love blossomed and Deas proposed! Because Japanese culture has played such an important role in their lives and relationship, Kathy and Deas did an elegant Japanese theme for their (rainy day!) wedding. Cherry blossoms accentuated pale pink centerpieces on tables marked with woodcuts featuring English on one side and Japanese on the other. The bride and groom sat beneath their own specially woodcut Mrs./Mr. signs, which also featured traditional Japanese symbols, and guests dined with bamboo cutlery and plates. The cake, also featuring a delicate cherry blossom motif, was topped with traditional Japanese dolls, and traditional Japanese engagement origami decorated tables. Kathy’s girls carried fans down the aisle in place of bouquets, and perhaps the sweetest detail of the wedding (other than Kathy’s hot pink wedding rain boots) was the wall hanging of classic Japanese origami cranes… made by Kathy’s students as a farewell present!

    LOVE the hanging cranes. We see a lot of that here and I adore it! Such a nice touch with some extra meaning :-)

    Nice photos! The japanese-inspired decorations complement the venue perfectly. I’m crazy about cherry blossoms and I would love to see a lot of them in my wedding ceremony supplies and even in the reception.
