​Inspired by the couple's meet cute in Japan while they were both in the Navy, as well as the romantic garden aesthetic of the venue, everything from the watercolor indigo-on-vellum invitation wraps to the Cocktail Hour bar panels to the delicate origami crane escort cards featured original artwork from the Mother of the Bride. The result could not have been more awe-inspiring. This couple is so dear to our hearts, and it was such an honor bringing their story to life on a day filled with infectious laughter, familial support and the happiest tears.
