Meet Mariko + Dan, their love knows no bounds (or borders). With Mariko in New Haven and Dan in Fargo, their top priority was to plan a wedding weekend that focused on their loved ones. No matter what, their guests came first. These two were married on Dan’s parents’ anniversary at St. Kate’s Our Lady of Victory Chapel, the same chapel Mariko’s parents were married, how sweet is that?!
Photos are important to Mariko and Dan because it was a photo that brought them together. So it was a no-brainer that they gravitated to Cadence + Eli of Cadence Cornelius Photographs. Their day was touching, filled with blush pink and Shakespeare at the Town and Country Club. They carried their love for Shakespeare throughout the wedding planning, from the letterpressed invitation to the table numbers. Mariko and Dan’s rings are even tied to their favorite Shakespeare plays. These two are kind-hearted and such a blessing to those around them and to each other. We were honored to be apart of their day. O spirit of love! How quick and fresh art thou….*Be sure to take a look at Mariko + Dan's story featured on Middle of the Map Weddings!
