As you can see from this wonderful photo of Naomi and her bridesmaids, the event was elegant and modern.
Beaming and ready to enjoy the rest of the evening, everyone was seated at these gorgeous tables to party and feast.
The beautiful image below of Naomi in her kimono illustrates one of her favorite elements of the day. She loved "the diversity of our guests. Having Swedish toasts, Japanese kimonos, American food, and guests from literally all over the world. I loved our first dance."
And Naomi isn't one of those brides whose wedding went by in a blur. She says, "I actually remember everything pretty well. It has been pretty much etched into my brain!"
With an event like this, it's easy to see why!
The photo below, taken while guests were enjoying their meals, shows more of the amazing setting. Geoff says his favorite moment was "the view/ambiance from the balcony before sunset while eating dinner."
It wasn't all serene elegance, however. There was plenty of fun, too! One moment in particular sticks out in Geoff's memory: "Mr. Katagai, hands in the air, jumping up and down on the dance floor in the center of a sea of younger folk dancing to 'Living on a Prayer.'"
Congratulations to Naomi and Geoff! Red Letter Days is so happy to have helped bring about your special day. Best wishes for years of happiness to come!
