Hakone Estate and Gardens | An Intimate Wedding

Dear Diary,

I met these two lovers at one of the cutest and oldest Japanese Gardens in the western hemisphere! Hakone Gardens is such a pretty place to celebrate anyone’s love! The atmosphere is to die for! I really felt like we were in Japan!

As a photographer, I get the utmost privilege to not only document but to learn about these unique love stories. No two are the same! Adrianne and Alan met in Las Vegas during a trip and let’s just say whatever happens in Vegas stays in Vegas! Just kidding! But I’ll share what is permitted. They both were visiting from different parts of the country! Alan from the Bay Area and Adrianne from the midwest! Both of them clicked and it became the start of something new! A long-distance relationship was formed, it consisted of years traveling back and forth in visiting each other.

Relationships like this are never easy but WOW! That’s honestly something special. One thing I learned about distance is not for the fearful, it’s for the bold. It’s for those who are willing to spend a lot of time alone in exchange for a little time with the one they love. It’s for those who know a good thing when they see it, even if they don’t see it nearly enough. They are worth it!

Congrats Lovers!

Love, Victorio
