so korean weddings are a little different than american weddings.being that this was the third one i've attended since living in korea (here's number one, and here's number two), i had expected some different traditions.
first of all, the bride sits in a secluded room before the ceremony, and guests can file into this room to take one-on-one photographs with her.
secondly, the ceremony only lasts about twenty minutes.
usually, during this short period of time, the groom sings a song to his bride-to-be. david sang jason mraz's "i won't give up" to lucy. ^^
[david nodding to lucy's dad as sort of a sign of approval slash respect. so adorable!!] ^^
toward the end of the ceremony, david yelled a word to the audience that loosely translates to "hooray!"
and unlike the western "reception" that most of us are familiar with, korean weddings are traditionally concluded with a short buffet-style lunch/dinner. during this time, the bride and groom, dressed in traditional korean attire called "hanbok," walk around and chat to their guests.
as prior mentioned, david and lucy's wedding was such a special event for me to attend! congratulations to them both =]]
