Sara & Lawrence integrated a special tradition into their wedding.
Folding 1,000 Origami Cranes is truly a labor of love The ancient practice of a man and woman folding 1,000 cranes for their wedding is a Japanese tradition that stands for long life, happiness, and peace. Cranes are associated with fidelity and longevity, as they choose a mate for life and are said to live a thousand years. That is why 1,000 cranes are made, one for each year. Tradition holds that the couple who finishes this task before their wedding day will be richly rewarded with a good and happy marriage.
