Venice is a popular city for tourist weddings. In recent years, it has become a magnet for Japanese couples, many of whom have a romantic destination wedding in Venice and another, larger ceremony for friends and family at home.
Today, Cheryl was getting off the No. 2 vaporetto at San Marco Vallaresso when she noticed a Japanese couple in wedding clothes disembarking ahead of her with a photographer and a videographer in tow.
