When my family and I went to Seattle & Spokane....we went to a wedding and to visit family. We stayed with Family in Spokane and my husband's aunt & uncle had photos of their son's wedding on the wall that were captivating. I love the time-honored traditions of every culture, but these photos because they relate to my children and their heritage spoke to my heart....they were taken on behalf of the bride's parents who are from Japan and wanted their daughter to marry in traditional attire. The groom is my husband's cousin.
Eventhough my children are also Scotch-Irish & German, their name is Japanese and that is the Heritage they most embrace. It is a proud and very honorable lineage to come from and I am blessed to be surrounded by these people and their strong sense of family and generous hospitality.
