Here we go! Part two (view part 1 here & their SF City Hall here) of Youna and Tim’s delightful wedding in Seoul, Korea! It was incredibly fascinating to watch how the day unfolded with customs and show-stopping effects :) Korean weddings are more formal in a variety of ways. Traditionally, the wedding day is more about the couple’s parents ‘giving’ them away. Dinner and entertainment (Youna and Tim’s friends performed a few songs!) is provided for the guests. The couple and their parents aren’t given a spot to eat, instead they thank each guest for attending. Apparently, it’s not typical for the couple to say their own vows but they did! Even better, Youna sang a beautiful song to Tim. Heavenly! Youna also bought some fun props for guests to enjoy for photo-taking fun! So you could say they modernized things up a bit. A beautiful Pyebaek ceremony took place after the dinner reception. Youna and Tim performed bows to their family, poured tea/wine, older generations shared words of wisdom and parents threw dates/chestnuts to determine how many children they would have, 9! Such a memorable experience, words can’t express how thankful I am that you shared your celebrations and lives with me. XO!
