Oo and ahh at this groom's traditional Japanese garb and his bride's gorgeous tattoo sleeve #Wedding Porn#british columbia#couples of color#green dress#groom gear#kimono#long-haired groom#rainy May 21 | Chris Wolfgang mswolfgang Photos by: Tegan McMartin Photography Photos by Tegan McMartin Photography Rainy-day weddings bring their own special brand of gorgeousness. Kat and Greg got married on a drizzly April day in 2013, near Greg's hometown of Nanaimo, British Columbia. Thanks to the abundance of greenery at hand, most of the decor — like the beautiful, fern-covered trellis — was hand-sourced by family members. Looks like family helped out in a big way throughout the wedding: Greg's mom not only made the couple's cake, but also Greg's stunning, traditional Japanese ensemble. I adore the fact that he used The Book of Kimono to help him put it on correctly. As amazing as Greg looked, don't forget to check out Kat. Girl has a tattoo sleeve that is jaw-dropping. She showed it off with a dress in her favorite color, green.

Love that tattoo! 2 agree Reply That's my sister! She famous! 3 agree Reply This is great! My fiancee is Japanese-Canadian and scoffed at the suggestion she wear a kimono to our wedding, but when her sister offered to make her the men's traditional hakama pants etc. she got interested. After seeing these photos, now she's really excited! It looks very sharp. Thanks for sharing. 🙂 6 agree Reply I love all of the green in and around this wedding! 1 agrees Reply Awesome!
