Thinking of Empress Michiko of Japan today. As Emperor Akihito steps down, ending the Heisei Era and ushering in the new Reiwa era for Japan, I'm reminded of the moment E and I were walking in Tokyo and Empress Michiko drove past and rolled down her window to smile. I could tell from her kind face that she was full of warmth, and from what I understand, both the Emperor and Empress have left their marks on Japanese society through their empathy and compassion. The couple met playing tennis and just celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary a couple weeks ago. Oshiawase ni to all. #🇯🇵⁣⠀ ⁣⠀ #empressmichiko #michikoshoda #empressofjapan #empressconsortofjapan #emperorakihito #akihito #hermajesty #hismajesty #emperorofjapan #jap#japaneseimperials #japaneseimperialfamily #imperialhouse #royals #japan #heisei #heiseiera #reiwa #reiwaera #imperialhouseholdagency @imperial_house.japan @justinhankins #天皇 #明#明仁天皇 #明仁 #天皇皇后両陛下 #皇#皇后陛下 #皇后 #皇后美智子 #美智子 #日本 #宮内庁

Ceremonies are pretty important. There's not much time, there's a predefined list of tasks, and the last thing you want to do is screw anything up. But I love finding opportunities to play during ceremonies. This was shot through A+N's centerpieces, which were being staged in the back for their reception at Journeyman Distillery. #🥃 ⠀ ⠀ Photography: @justinhankins • Officiant: @journeymandistillery • Venue, Catering, Decor: @journeymanwedding • Floral: @stacystulp • Entertainment: @rmhendrixson • Dessert: @blackcurrantbakehouse • Beauty: @salonstrand, @truebeautybydana • Boutique: @bbon1995 • Bridesmaid Gowns: @iheartazazie • Shoes: @jimmychoo ⠀ ⠀ #journeymandistillery #journeymanwedding #journemandistillerywedding #idoinchoo #puremichigan #newbuffalowedding #threeoakswedding #westmichiganwedding #mic#michiganweddingographer #michiganwedding #michiganbride #midwestwedding #chicagowedding #midwestlovestories #MIweddings #mittenweddings #loftwedding #distillerywedding #bokeh #realwedding #rusticwedding #brideandgroom #flashesofdelight #shootandshare #winterwedding #weddingceremony
