Cake

I realized recently that I'd yet to finish posting about my brother-in-law Shogo's wedding to Namiko. My flow had been interrupted by the sudden idea to make a photo book for them, and I neglected to pick it up even after posting the candid bride portrait last month. This post continues from “Reception, Part V: Entertainment”, and completes the story.

And what comes after the entertainment? Dessert.

Of course, the main feature is the wedding cake.

The bride and groom stood by the table and handed out cake as the guests filed by, after which the guest could add additional tasty treats from the ample spread on the next tables...

Stuffed Bears at the Table of Honor

After dessert, Shogo and Namiko made some speeches of appreciation to their folks, and presented the mothers with Teddy bears embroidered with their (the now newly-wed child's) name, birth date, and weight; each bear was made to weigh exactly what the child weighed at birth.

Ready to Present the Bears

(They felt much heavier than a newborn, though, because you see a Teddy bear and expect it to weigh accordingly.)

Dawdling with the camera, as I tend to do, I was the last one to leave.
