Sakura (cherry blossoms) are Japan’s national floral emblem, one that has an intimate connection to the people of Japan. It is a common aspiration amongst Japanese brides to take pictures before sakura in traditional bridal dress. Cherry blossom season is usually a warm time of year when snow doesn’t fall but miraculously on this day not only did snow fall but also collected in great piles. The couple take pictures in front of a temple full of memories for them with traditional red umbrellas. Such a wonderful day is a once in a lifetime occurrence.
