Bainbridge Island Japanese American Community

Yaeko Yamashita and Kenji Nagaishi’s Wedding Day in Manzanar. Jan 1943.

Several weddings were held in camp. Brides either ordered their gowns through a catalog store or they were sewn in camp. News of these happy occasions made it back to friends and neighbors at home on Bainbridge Island thanks to the regular columns in the Bainbridge Review.
