Melody and Hisashi first met playing kickball, and most of their games were on the great lawn at Washington Park. It was perfectly fitting that they said I do at Music Hall in Cincinnati overlooking the spot where so many of their first memories together took place!
These two compliment each other so beautifully. There’s no denying Sashi would do anything for his beautiful bride – as his best man (and random college roommate) said, he couldn’t get Sashi to go outside to get to class if it was under 40 degrees outside, but Melody convinced him to trek across Iceland with her. And Melody has the most adorable crinkled nose smile that comes out when she looks at her man. As the realization that she was Hisashi’s WIFE hit her on the walk back down the aisle after their first kiss, Melody was overwhelmed with the sweetest happy tears that just said it all.
Melody’s man of honor, Sean, gave our first ever toast incorporating a cooler of cheese, but we just LOVED it! In describing Melody (who apparently really likes cheese), he said she was like several cheeses – Brie (soft and sweet), Parmesan (strong), and Goat (stubborn). But our favorite was Sashi’s cheese. Sean said Hisashi was Sharp Cheddar for the very simple reason that he is Melody’s favorite. Can a cheese speech make you cry? It turns out it can. 🙂
Melody and Sashi, we are so thankful to know you both. You already have such a beautiful love story, and you’re just at the very beginning. You handled all of the challenges of wedding planning in a pandemic with so much grace, and you had an absolutely beautiful (and COVID safe!) wedding. We couldn’t love you two more. CONGRATULATIONS!
Melody and Sashi did a beautiful job remembering his mom, Rosemary, on their wedding day. They displayed this touching piece by Hisashi’s dad on the legacy table with several photographs, and it brought tears to my eyes to read of the hope for the future and joy that Melody brought to their family in such a hard time.
