Who says you need a big diamond ring, fresh flowers, a white gown, a highly-experience photographer and huge banquet hall? Not us!
Our rings are matching tattoos, my bouquet was repurposed from a previous party, my dress - mint colored, our photographer was a recent college grad and the banquet hall included my local mayor and lots of smiles and selfies.
DJ and I built our relationship on deep values of love and understanding. As an interracial couple, one growing up in the USA and the other in South Korea - we have a lot of cultural and linguistic barriers to overcome. However, love conquers all and we have been able to reach each other on a more profound level. Our core values, global outlook and lifestyle priorities are in sync. Having friends and family all over the world, we decided to approach the wedding situation somewhat non-traditionally in order to include everyone.
Read more about our love story from Guatemala to Korea here, see our NY wedding shower images here, and stay tuned for our Traditional Korean ceremony.
But for this post, please just enjoy the images!
