Hakone Garden Wedding Photographer
What a beautiful day it was for Elaine and Danny and their Hakone Estate and Gardens Wedding. Hakone Estate and Gardens with its stunning nature and beautiful landscaping was a perfect place for a wedding.
We started pre-wedding photography of Danny at their home with his family and Elaine at her parent’s home with her family. We did individual solo portraits and family group photos. We also made sure we had time to get a shot of Danny and Indie (their dog who couldn’t be at the wedding).
The “First Look” was at Hakone Gardens at the Upper House. It was a magical moment for both of them.
They decided to take most of the family photos that are usually taken after the ceremony before so that we could take a group shot of everyone and then go straight to the cocktail hour. It was a perfect plan.
The wedding ceremony was gorgeous. The gardens are such a beautiful setting to exchange wedding vows.
There were many children present at the wedding and even though they decided not to have dancing Elaine and Danny had a dance floor set up with toys for the kids to play with. It was a great way to keep them occupied during all the festivities.
During dinner after Elaine changed to her red Chinese gown we took them out for a few more photos during the wonderful soft light just before sunset.
The evening continued with Elaine and Danny visiting every table, an impromptu “first dance”, cake cutting, a slideshow and a glow stick send off.
