The cherry blossoms were in full riotous bloom this weekend, perfect timing for Justina & Khai’s wedding at the Brooklyn Botanical Garden.  I love this description of the cultural significance of the cherry blossom tree from the Huffington post:

The significance of the cherry blossom tree in Japanese culture goes back hundreds of years. In their country, the cherry blossom represents the fragility and the beauty of life. It’s a reminder that life is almost overwhelmingly beautiful but that it is also tragically short. When the cherry blossom trees bloom for a short time each year in brilliant force, they serve as a visual reminder of how precious and how precarious life is. So, when Japanese people come together to view the cherry blossom trees and marvel at their beauty, they aren’t just thinking about the flowers themselves, but also about the larger meaning and deep cultural tradition the cherry blossom tree.”

Here is a quick sneak peak from Justina & Khai’s gorgeous wedding at the Palm House.
