Kagami-biraki (鏡開き) literally translates to "opening the mirror". It is often used to start a ceremony (such as a wedding), and consists of breaking open the lid of a sake barrel with a wooden mallet. It's considered good luck and is practiced in Japan during happy celebrations! #japaneseweddings#kagamibiraki#blessed#thankyou
Another picture perfect day for a wedding in La Jolla, California at the spectacular La Jolla Cove Suites. Our bride, Jo Jo and groom, Carl envisioned a beach themed, Japanese accented wedding with hues of blue and yellow throughout. What developed was beyond our wildest dreams.
