Brandon & Masato decided to make their love official on August 18th.
They planned their dream wedding from Japan, with the help of Brandon’s wonderful Ohio friend, Janelle. Janelle was Brandon’s former high school Japanese teacher turned close friend. I communicated with Brandon through email to discuss wedding details, but didn’t officially meet him & Masato until the week before the wedding. Everything was precisely planned, making their day perfect.
We started at the Infinity Salon the morning of, where the whole bridal party got their hair cut, styled, & makeup done. The bridal party sported purple Disney themed shirts, which showed off Brandon & Masato’s love of Disney. We then headed for the beautiful Sheraton Suites to get ready. Brandon & Masato got ready together, then went outside by the waterfall for portraits. We then went to downtown Kent for bridal party portraits before the ceremony. The ceremony took place outside at Roses Run Country Club, overlooking the golf course. They did a sake ceremony, which is a Japanese tradition that included the mothers to be a part of.
Brandon & Masato are now living back in the States, and enjoying the next chapter in their lives. The love that these two share for each other is obvious!
Congratulations, and enjoy the preview of my favorite images.
