Ceremony Progress

First Meet (5-7 minutes)

The highlight of the day is undoubtedly the “first meet.” Typically held before the ceremony, the couple comes together in a private and intimate setting. This emotional encounter is a poignant moment filled with excitement, nerves, and sheer joy as they see each other for the first time on their wedding day.


Ceremony (15-20 minutes)

Following the “first meet,” the couple, now dressed in their wedding attire, proceeds to the ceremony venue. Surrounded by loved ones, they exchange vows, symbolizing their commitment to each other. The ceremony is a heartwarming celebration of love, marked by music, readings, and the exchange of rings.


Traditional Japanese Celebratory Toast

In Japan, the tradition of sharing a cup of sake has long been a symbol of forging connections and deepening bonds. In traditional Japanese weddings, a significant ritual known as the “San San Kudo” involves a sake ceremony to signify the “proof” of marriage. This ceremony represents the past, present, and future, with sake poured into three different-sized cups representing small (the past), medium (the present), and large (the future).
In a slight variation inspired by this Japanese tradition, you will experience a ceremony where the couple alternately drinks from cups filled with sake, symbolizing the deepening of their bond. This ceremony does not carry any specific religious connotations and is designed to capture the essence of the Japanese style of celebrating relationships through the shared act of drinking sake.


Cake cutting and Champagne toast

The cutting of the wedding cake is a symbolic act, often followed by other cultural or personal traditions. These rituals add a personal touch to the celebration and create lasting memories for the couple and their guests.
