Japanese Wedding Inspiration

Japanese Wedding Inspiration. We use words to express our feelings. In the Japanese culture, poetry called “Tanka,” which dates back 1,200 years, is a practice in which brief poems are written with only 31 characters. And while the measures are short, the words are powerful.

That’s the inspiration behind this styled shoot and it shows how two cultures can fuse together to create one incredible experience.
