On Friday, December 3rd, 2010, Takamatsu Soke married Yordie Sand at a small ceremony in Yordie’s Zen Garden. The wedding was a traditional wedding but the wedding party and guests wore kimonos and decorations were in the Zen theme.
Our Second Life officiant conducted the wedding, queueing the bride and groom as they told stories of how they met at the garden and how their relationship evolved. Yordie subsequently assumed the name Yordie Sands-Soke. Following is the story told in photos (Photos provided by Thor Effingham).

The wedding had to be small due to constraints of the Nishijima sim (including eight bot avatars that LL would not remove). In fact, after accounting for the ten members of the wedding party, officiant, wedding planners and photographer, Tak & I could only invite three couples each.
However, the wedding reception was unlimited thanks to the generosity of fellow Zen garden owner, Magi McBride. Tomorrow the story of the reception and more amazing photos. And in the coming days I’ll be featuring other the wedding photos of Minnie Tunwarm. And there will be stories from our honeymoon in Paris, stories about friends, and stories about the amazing 12 sims of the Paris sim group. There is much to tell.
