As a wedding photographer, I have the honor of witnessing a variety of wedding traditions. They can be very common - like the exchanging of rings - or they can be unique experiences passed down from generations of family members. Some are newly created by the couple as a way to combine different traditions and cultures. Either way, they are personally my favorite part of the wedding. In this photo blog series, Wedding Traditions, I will highlight some of these moments.
Here is a glimpse into Kenichi and Jiyeon's wedding which incorporated the tradition of the 1000 Cranes.
Kenichi + Jiyeon
venue: private home in Woodstock, NY
The couple covered this beautiful hudson valley property with one thousand origami cranes.
The time and energy put into the thousand hand-folded origami cranes symbolizes the patience and trust necessary to sustain a happy marriage.
