INVITING-THE-WHOLE-TOWN WEDDING PARTY: THE DAY BEFORE

Tomorrow I'm attending the wedding party of Gota-san and Kyoko-san. Both of them are members of Ishinomaki 2.0, a community building organization of Ishinomaki which was founded right after the 311 tsunami in 2011. The party is named "Inviting-the-whole-town Wedding Party" and countless people in and around Ishinomaki will join.
明日は豪太さんと享子さんの結婚式。2人とも石巻で2011年の津波の直後に誕生した街作り団体「石巻2.0」のメンバーで、「まちぐるみ結婚式」と名付けられた式には、石巻やその周辺から数えきれないほどのゲストが参加する。

The party will be held at 4 key venues in the center of downtown Ishinomaki. And the bridal couple will make the rounds of these venues. Kameshichi Kimono Store, now also known as Community Cafe Kameshichi (Comi-Kame), is one of these venues and the main stage for the couple is ready inside the store.
結婚式では石巻の市街地中央に4か所の会場が設けられ、新郎新婦はそこを一つずつ巡って行く。会場の一つが、今では「コミュニティカフェ・かめ七(コミかめ)」としても知られる「かめ七呉服店」。店内では新郎新婦が立つメインステージの準備が完了。

The party is completely handcrafted. It is planned and organized by people of Ishinomaki 2.0 and their friends. At Kameshichi, the team is having a meeting to check the timeline of the party.
この結婚式は完全に手作りで、企画も進行も、すべて石巻2.0のメンバーとその仲間の人たちが行う。かめ七ではチームが集まって、式のスケジュールを確認中。

IRORI Ishinomaki, the global headquarters of Ishinomaki 2.0, is also one of venues. It still needs a bit of tidying up.
