Kento and Clarice’s wedding at Woodend Manor was a merging of Brazilian and Japanese customs. They had a Japanese sake ceremony after their vows and Brazilian dancers during the reception! The day was full of vibrant colors, fun dancing, and really yummy food! They actually took the time to fold 1,000 cranes for their wedding which supposedly gives them ONE wish. Personally, I think that is a lot of work for ONE wish, but the place looked amazing with the paper cranes dancing overhead, on the mantles, and on the wedding cake itself! I wonder what they wished for!!
These two lovebirds met at a Halloween party about 6 years ago where she was a belly dancer and he was the phantom of the opera. Clarice’s maid of honor was there the night of their meeting and retold the story brilliantly in her speech at the reception. Kento and Clarice spent the night dancing together, laughing, and visiting with all the family members who came from around the world to celebrate their union. My favorite moment of the night was watching the face of Kento’s grandfather as he watched the Brazillian dancers! He looked like he had died and gone to heaven!
I always love working with Melody from Historic Events! We are great friends as well as work colleages! The set up was flawless and she was there to help with anything that came up throughout the evening. Kento and Clarice actually found me through Melody so I love her for sending couples my way! If you need a planner for your wedding..she is your gal!
Thanks to my awesome assistant Ian for making the day go smoothly and for always being there when I need him!
