All weddings join two lives, but this one also joined two cultures. Mari and Aki are wine-tasting, marathon-running Americans but also heritage-loving Japanese. They met at NYU, and married a bit uptown, at White Plains’ modern light-filled Kanopi Restaurant atop the Ritz-Carlton tower. Shooting was a dream in the expansive windowed space, complete with winding staircase and sprawling views. We can’t take credit for introducing them, but we can for marrying them: we referred them to the officiating judge!
