Real wedding: Sayumi + Boulos part 2

CAKE: Sayumi’s college roommate Anna-Marie Farrier designed and made the multi-tiered origami-crane wedding cake.

PHOTOS: Nicole and Brad Wolf of SOTA DZINE. We first came across Brad and Nicole’s work on Brooklyn Bride. Smitten by their breath-taking editorial-style shots that bring the wedding photograph genre into the realm of art, we called them as soon as we were engaged. We found ourselves having the time of our lives working with them to tell a little story about love through these photographs. Their creative energy is absolutely infectious, and their sense of humor keeps everything real, even when we are trying to create something surreal together.

DRESS: Kenneth Poole, tailored to fit by Vanessa Nirode of Brooklyn

MAKE-UP: Tamaki Arayama gave Sayumi marathon-length eyelash extensions, and hooked her up with a bling-errific gemstone French manicure

HAIR: Takashi of YUI Salon (323 West 11th Street in Manhattan)

MUSIC: Boulos’s brother, guitarist Tariq Harb (http://www.myspace.com/tariqharb), provided the reception music; avant-garde jazz pianist and producer Tonino Miano (http://www.toninomiano.com/), set the tone with music at the church

FLOWERS: InBetween Greens (www.inbetweengreens.com)

CATERING & RECEPTION VENUE: The incredible staff at Ici Restaurant provided seamless service and even managed to make a leaky roof situation disappear within minutes

ARABIC SWEETS: Oriental Pastry on Atlantic Ave. provided the Arabic kunafeh dessert

CONVERSATION STARTERS: Sayumi’s friend, writer and French Literature Professor Thangam Ravindranathan at Brown University selected and printed quirky quotes on love and marriage by writers such as Balzac and Khalil Gibran

FAVORS: We made our own personalized wedding favors – they were sake “masu” cups made of cedarwood and stuffed with Jordan almonds. On one side was an antiquated Japanese character for “One,” and on the other side we branded our logo which spells “Boulos” and “Sayumi” in Arabic calligraphy intertwined with
each other. The boxes were manufactured by a company from the same town in Hiroshima where Sayumi’s grandfather once worked in the sake business. Available for sale on e-bogu.com

DÉCOR: Countless friends and family endured crash-courses in origami-folding to produce the crane decorations made with paper & ribbons from Kinokuniya bookstore and Kate’s Paperie.
