Japanese wedding origami - inspiration

Wednesday, June 04, 2014

One of the things that really made our wedding day special was the nod to our romance that kicked off while I was living in Japan. We wanted our wedding to have some type of Japan influence, but not be over the top. And then along came our wedding origami theme.

If you'd like to know more about our wedding check out my post: wedding origami - keeping Japan close to our hearts, which is still today the most popular post on my little blog.

So I thought today I'd share some of the imagery that I fell in love with on my wedding planning journey...

... cranes...
... hand folded origami invitations...
... origami keepsakes...
... origami table setting hearts...
