たいせつな人と作り上げる日。

いつも飾らない気さくな雰囲気で接してくださる新郎様。明るく愛嬌たっぷりで笑顔が素敵な新婦様。そんなお二人がはじめてMAYAに来てくださった日のことを今でもよく覚えています。お二人の息ぴったりの会話や空気感を見て、ご一緒に長い月日を重ねてこられたのだろうと思っていたところ、「実はまだお付き合いをして数ヶ月なんです。」と新婦様が照れくさそうに教えてくれました。たくさんの方々とのご縁がお二人を引き合わせ、出会ってすぐに意気投合したお二人は、自然とお二人で歩んでいく将来のお話が進んでいったそうです。

そんなお話を伺いながら、ご一緒に準備を進め、いよいよ迎えた結婚の日。

1日目には、新婦様のご家族を迎え、ご一緒に夕食を召し上がって頂きました。

「ほっとするような和食が食べたい!」というご希望を頂き、MAYAのシェフが考案した献立。「鶏の南蛮漬け」や「エビ春菊じゃがいもの春巻き」、「焼きさつま揚げ」、「たこ飯」、「具沢山の豚汁」、「季節のおひたしや和え物」など、お二人の出身地の食材を使い、思わずほっとするようなお味の家庭料理をお作りしました。

このハレの日を迎える前夜の団欒の時間は、まさにMAYAがお二人のお家になる瞬間でした。

待ちに待ったハレの日。

ご親族とご友人、それぞれの時間をたいせつにしたいという想いから、お二人は2部制のご披露宴を選ばれました。ご両家のご親族様だけで過ごす披露宴はお二人の乾杯からはじまります。お二人からご自身の親御様、ご兄弟、ご親戚の皆様をご紹介されたあと、スクリーンには親御様に選んで頂いた想い出のお写真を映し出します。お二人ご自身の言葉で、幼少期から現在に至るまでの想い出をお話されたあとには、お二人を1番近くで見守ってきた親御様やご親戚の方が懐かしそうに当時のエピソードをお話しされており、とてもあたたかい時間が流れておりました。

ご友人の皆様もたくさん集い、いよいよ挙式がはじまります。

たいせつなゲストの皆様に見守られながら、お二人で誓いの言葉を述べられたあとは、ワインボックスセレモニーを行って頂きました。ゲストの皆様が撮影されたチェキを記念のワインが入った箱いっぱいに集め、結びには、10年後のお互いに向けたお手紙を入れて頂き、くぎ打ちをして皆様の想いと一緒に封じ込めて頂きました。


皆様に結婚の承認を頂いたあとには、お二人はご友人の皆様とダイニングへ向かいます。

ご親族様とのご披露宴とはまた雰囲気が変わり、ご友人の皆様のお声で賑わうなか、お酒がお好きなお二人はご自身の生まれ年のワインをご用意され、サングリアセレモニーを行いました。赤ワインにはオレンジ、りんご、金柑、いちごのフルーツ、白ワインにはライム、レモン、葡萄などご用意し、ゲストの皆様一人一人にお好きなフルーツを入れて頂きます。

仕上げにお二人でワインを注ぎ、完成したサングリアを飲まれる皆様の楽しそうな笑顔が印象的でした。

たいせつな方々とお家で過ごす2泊3日。

本当に自分のお家のように、たいせつな方々を招き入れているお二人の表情をみて、私たちスタッフまであたたかい気持ちになりました

A day fuThe day was completed with someone special.ll of smiles

The Days When Happiness Alights The bridegroom, with his gentle demeanor, always speaks to us politely. The bride has a cheerful smile, without affectation or putting on airs. We carefully proceeded with preparations so that such a couple as the two of you will comfortably, without having to act formally, enjoy the time with your guests, who will gather on your wedding days.The bridegroom met us with a friendly atmosphere that was never affected. The bride had a wonderful smile that was bright and full of charm. We still remember very well the day such a couple came to MAYA for the first time. Seeing that the couple’s conversation and ambience were perfectly in sync, we began to think that they had been together for a long time. It was then that the bride awkwardly told us, “The truth is we have been going out together for only a few months.” We heard that the couple were brought together through the connections of many people; soon after meeting each other, the couple got along very well; and they proceeded to talk about a future that they would spontaneously experience as a couple. While listening to their story, we moved ahead together with the preparations. At last, we reached their wedding day. On the first day, we welcomed the bride’s family, and they ate dinner together. They told us, “We want to eat Japanese food that will make us breathe a sigh of relief!” Thus, MAYA’s chef planned such a menu. Using ingredients from the couple’s hometown, the chef prepared a home-cooked meal whose flavors would make them spontaneously breathe a sigh of relief. For example, the chef prepared deep-fried chicken in a spicy sauce; spring rolls with shrimps, chrysanthemums, and potatoes; fried fishcakes; rice with octopus; a hearty pork miso soup; and boiled greens in season and chopped fish, seafood, and vegetables dressed with a sauce. This harmonious time on the night before the formal occasion was a moment when MAYA would truly become a part of the couple’s family. The formal occasion was eagerly awaited. Because of their desire to cherish time with their relatives and friends, respectively, the couple chose a two-shift reception. The reception to be spent with just the relatives of both families began with a toast from the couple. The couple introduced their parents, siblings, and relatives. After that, photos that brought back memories and were selected by their parents were shown on the screen. The couple spoke in their own words about their memories from childhood to the present. After that, their parents, who had kept the closest watch over them, and their relatives spoke fondly about episodes from those days. And a very warm and fuzzy time went by. Lots of the couple’s friends also came together, and the wedding ceremony began at last. While their beloved guests watched over them, the couple exchanged their vows. After that, they held their wine box ceremony. They packed the box, which contained their commemorative wine, with Polaroid pictures taken of their guests. In conclusion, they put in letters addressed to each other ten years into the future, nailed the box shut, and locked those things together with everyone’s thoughts. After everyone approved their marriage, the couple headed to the dining room with all their friends. The atmosphere was also different from the reception with their relatives. When things were lively with the voices of their friends, the couple, who loved alcohol, had on hand wines from their years of birth and held a sangria ceremony. Oranges, apples, kumquats, and strawberries were on hand for the red wine. Limes, lemons, and grapes were on hand for the white wine. The couple put in their guests’ glasses the fruits that their guests liked. Finally, the couple poured wine into their guests’ glasses and completed making the sangria. The happy-looking smiles of everyone drinking their sangria were memorable. Two nights and three days were spent with special someones as a family. Looking at the expressions of the couple who invited their special someones, even us staff persons had warm feelings as if we were really a part of their family.
