Love knows no distance.
Robert always had a great appreciation for the Japanese culture. I went to school with this guy (back when we were 12!) and I can recall Robert teaching himself the language and sharing his anime sketches. To see that years later, Robert is living in Japan with the girl of his dreams really was no surprise to me. Robert met his perfect match, albeit it be 6,000+ miles away!. Love knows no distance. And Robert + Aiko proved this to all of us when they wed in Robert's hometown of Naperville, Illinois.
The day began at St. Margaret Mary Church. During an intimate and beautiful ceremony, the happy couple pronounced their love for one another through heartfelt love letters they had written just for this special day. Tear jerker for sure! With a bubble-filled exit, Aiko + Robert were ready to celebrate with friends and family from the States as well as those who had made the trip with Aiko + Robert all the way from Japan.
The celebration took place at the Wheatstack of River Bend Golf Club. The night was full of Japanese traditions that were both fun and emotional. Wasabi filled eclair anyone? And the surprise, choreographed dance performed by the groom and his friends to end the evening was epic! おめでとうございます Aiko + Robert! .
P.S. Many had noticed a subtle Disney theme throughout the day. Robert proposed at Disneyland!!
