you are in your 20's or 30's, perhaps you are
going through a phase where everyone around you
is getting married. Well, this is definitely the
case with me -- only my friends are spread out
all over the globe. The following photos were
taken mostly in Japan. They portray two bi-cultural
weddings: A Shinto ceremony for Jarrad (Australia)
and Takako (Japan), then a Catholic wedding for
Cyrille (France) and Masami (Korean-Japanese).
Also pictured are my friends' costume wedding
reception, a very traditional ceremony in Ecuador
and finally my brother's wedding in my mom's backyard.
One final note: There is a good chance that I
myself will be married by the time you read this.
Soon, I'll be sending my papers off to Japan so
that my fiancee (pictured with Masami) can take
them to her local city hall and marry us with
me "en absentia." That's right! I'm
going to be a mail-order husband!
