Smith Barn, Salem MA I Kimberly & Hiro

Last fall Will and I had the privilege of traveling to Boston for one of the most charming, meaningful weddings we have been a part of. We had such a great time getting to know Kimberly and Hiro...their hospitality and vibrant spirit made us feel at home. One of those moments where you become instant friends. I'm so excited to finally share their wedding day with you ...and when you see the size of their wedding party you will have an idea of just how much they are loved!Southwest Ohio and destination

An Excerpt from Kimberly about the wedding day:

Hiro and I had no shared expectations of our wedding day.  We knew we wanted to marry, and in so doing we wanted to create something beautiful to share with our family and friends.  Hiro has an uncanny ability to see the beauty in all things and I have always upheld a mantra found in one of my favourite pieces of literature, "in the end everything was beautiful and nothing hurt".  All told, we just wanted to create something that could be shared by everyone.

                "Because Hiro is from Japan and I am from Chicago, Boston is something of a middle ground for us.  It's in New England that we came to appreciate fall foliage,  freedom trails, light houses and row homes together.  It's where we met and we thought it appropriate to let it serve as center stage for our nuptuals."

We decided on a barn after visiting a boat house and a library.  The idea of a more rustic, home-inspired, venue sat well with us.  It was an iconic 2 story red barn housed on a small New England Farm, down a winding road.  Upon arrival Hiro was hooked!  Weddings in Japan are held chiefly in hotels.  There is no DIY or whimsical elements, whereas the barn had so much potential.  I immediately had a color scheme and layout in mind.  I knew I wanted the wedding to be a representation of everything that had brought us together.

That said we set out to incorporate our friends and family in every element.  From the DIY parties I hosted at our little barn house (we moved into a small, renovated barn shortly after signing the venue) to collective crane folding (our friends folded 1,000 paper cranes - a Japanese symbol of luck / hope / prosperity that we displayed at our wedding) to my bouquet which was a single flower carried down the aisle by each of my bridesmaids - our friends prepared each and every element of our wedding in step with us.

Seeing everything in action on the day of was overwhelming!  The gentle details, the hard work, the whimsy!  We were treated to a surprise - our friends made homemade pies and the crown jewel "the show pie" designed by our dear friends Moira and Karleen, spanned a few stories and was made with so much love.

We just wanted to provide people with a party to thank them for their support, help and inspiration.  Hiro and I are a wonderful working unit because of them.  In thanks we had a photo booth, a live band, too many attendants to name!

In all his Japanese family was blown away.  They'd never seen a wedding with so many personal touches.  I felt beyond fortunate to have an assembly of help to make lovely all that I'd envisioned and, obviously, to share the rest of my life with a man who makes everything seem entirely possible!
