絆が深まる日。

ものづくりがお好きで、納得のいくまで一つものに真摯に向き合う新郎様。そんな新郎様をあたたかく見守り、隣で支える新婦様。

結婚の日を結んだお二人にお話を伺うと、「これから2人で歩む人生はきっとこんな風に進んでいくのだろう。」と結婚の日の準備を通して感じることができたと仰ってくれました。


結婚の日1日目。

両家の親御様と一緒に過ごすこの日の夕食に選ばれたのは、おふたりが小さい頃からよく食卓に並んでいた「餃子」チェックインをされたあと真っ先に夕飯の買い出しへ出掛けられたおふたりは、「今日は家族で餃子作りをしようと思います。」

と微笑みながら話してくれました。その後、ご両家の親御様が集まり、みなさまでキッチンを囲み餃子作りをされました。ともにお酒が好きなご家族だったので、お話もお酒も進まれたようです。過ごされる前、両家で食卓を囲むことは、あまり想像ができなかったようですが、ごく自然に、ご家族の時間を過ごされていらっしゃいました。


結婚の日2日目。

白無垢、紋付袴の和装でお式を執り行いました。新郎新婦も含め、出席者のドレスコードは白と黒に統一。いわゆるケーキ入刀の場面では、和装なので「団子でやりたいです!」と独自のセレモニーをご依頼いただきました。ピラミッド型に詰んだ串団子におふたりでみたらし餡を流しかけるセレモニーは、ゲストのみなさまはもちろん、私たちMAYAスタッフも笑顔にしていただきました。お色直しでは、ドレスと白いセットアップへ着替え、お庭からご入場。受付の際、ゲスト全員にお渡ししていたご自身のお名前付きの栓抜きを持って、新婦様が大好きなコーラ瓶を全員に配り、後半に向けてもう一度乾杯。披露宴を結んだあとは、お二人がご用意されたドリンクやおつまみプレートで二次会を行い、お開きのない夜をみなさんで過ごされました。

結婚の日3日目。

昨日の余韻が残るダイニングでずっと会わせたいと思っていた友人同士が、案の定意気投合していたことや、初対面の友人同士が二次会後に一緒に帰っていたことを新郎様がとても嬉しそうに話してくださり、私たちまであたたかい気持ちになったことを覚えています。

ご家族やご友人、そしてお二人同士の絆がさらに強く、確かなものになったお二人の結婚の日。そんな2泊3日を近くでお手伝いできたことが、私たちMAYAスタッフはとても嬉しく思っています。

Days that Deepen Bonds

The bridegroom likes making things by hand and sincerely faces something until he is satisfied with it. The bride warmly watches over the bridegroom and supports him at his side. When we inquired with the couple after they had tied the knot, they said that through their wedding day preparations, they felt, “The life the two of us will lead from now on will surely proceed in this manner.”

The first wedding day. The item that the couple chose for dinner this day, which they would spend with their parents, was gyoza (pot stickers), which had often been set out on the dining table ever since they were children. After the couple checked in, the first thing they did was they went out shopping for dinner. While smiling, they told us, “Today, we will make gyoza (pot stickers) as a family.” After that, their parents gathered, and everyone crowded the kitchen and made gyoza (pot stickers). The families both liked alcohol, so it appears that both the conversations and the alcohol moved ahead. Before both families spent such time, it appears that no one could readily imagine both of the families sitting around a dining table. However, the families spent their time very naturally.

The second wedding day. The couple performed the ceremony, the bride dressed in a white kimono, the bridegroom dressed in a kimono with his hakama (pleated trousers) decorated with his family crest. The dress code of the attendees, including the bridegroom and bride, was the unification of white and black. For the so-called cake-cutting tradition, the couple would be dressed in kimonos, so they requested an original ceremony, telling us, “We want to do this with dango (dumplings)!” For the ceremony, the couple poured mitarashi an (bean paste mixed with a soy-and-sugar syrup) over skewered dango (dumplings) packed into the shape of a pyramid. The ceremony brought smiles to the faces of all the guests, of course, and us MAYA staff members, too. For the Oironaoshi (change of wardrobes), the bride had changed into a dress, and the bridegroom had changed into a matching white top and bottom, and they entered from the garden. During the check-in, each guest had been given a bottle opener labeled with the guest’s name. With each guest carrying a bottle opener, a bottle of a brand of cola that the bride loved was handed out to each guest, and there was one more toast toward the second half. After the reception wrapped up, the couple held a nijikai (after-party) with drinks and snacks that they had made arrangements for and pulled an all-nighter with everyone.

The third wedding day. In the dining room, which was basking in the afterglow of the day before, the bridegroom very happily told us that friends of his that he had always wanted to introduce to each other hit it off together just as he had expected and that friends of his that met for the first time left together after the nijikai (after-party). Thus, we remember that hearing what he told us warmed our hearts. On the couple’s wedding days, the bonds between the families, friends, and the couple became even stronger and more secure. We, the staff members at MAYA, are very happy to have helped from nearby with those two nights and three days.
