A Tale of Love in Japan

Last year in A Tale of Love I wrote about our daughter Beth and son-in-law Sergio’s wedding, at which I was honored to officiate. Rather than rush off to an affordable honeymoon, our fairytale couple saved their yen for a year, so they could visit Japan! Why Japan? Well, aside from the fact that it’s beautiful and fascinating, it’s a hotbed of cosplay (costumes + play). And Beth, a Japanese-inspired costume designer, and Sergio, a professional game reviewer and Dungeon Master, are devoted cosplayers. Result? They’ve just returned from playing their way through the land of the rising sun!

    Absolutely beautiful photos – gorgeous bride – handsome groom – and in that tuxedo, Mitch, you’re not so bad yourself. Now, even though I saw no photo of your wife, I know she looked lovely.

  9. I love the pictures of Japan and your happy ornate daughter and son-in-law. What a fun duo! Surely they’d have a blast if cast in roles for a Notzilla sequel. Thanks for sharing, Mitch.

  16. What awesome pictures, Mitch. (and I mean that in the truest sense of the word, not like these days when everything is “awesome.”) Your daughter is gorgeous! ❤

  17. Amazing photos! A question about the cake: was that their wedding cake or the groom’s cake?
    My daughter-in-law is from Georgia and apparently it is a Southern tradition to have two cakes at the reception – a traditional wedding cake and the groom’s cake. My son’s groom’s cake was a camel.
    Fascinating traditions abound!

    Beautiful pictures! Our daughter and her new husband were planning to go to japan for their honeymoon but it was when they were closed for covid. They will probably go in a year or so, but went to London instead. Still had fun! Japan looks cool.

    Amazing photos! And equally amazing imaginations. Blessings to you and your family on your daughter’s wedding. I’m sure it was a memorable celebration for all concerned, although I’m not sure how you kept the emotions at bay.

      It handled it pretty well, Russell. I was focused on keeping things flowing, so that helped. But when they kissed, and then when their mom lost it, that go to me.
