The first thing I noticed when scrolling through this album was the beautiful lighting each photo encompassed, and it made me long for the sunshine of Spring now more than ever. This wedding not only has gorgeous photos, it also includes some heartfelt DIY (my favorite) which were created by the bride and groom, with help from their family. The mix of modern, incorporated with cultural traditional elements, is what makes this wedding just so incredibly special.
From the Photographer
Beautiful wedding that involved many DIY aspects. The ceremony and reception took place on the grounds of Stephens College in Columbia, Missouri. The ceremony took place at Firestone Baars Chapel. The Chapel, a modern affair, was designed by Eero Saarinin, the architect of the St. Louis Arch. Almost all aspects of the wedding decor were created by the bride and groom, with the help of family. The flowers were purchased in bulk and arranged by the B+G’s mothers. A handmade lilac-scented soap was provided as gifts to the guests. The bride and groom, both (South) Korean, worked to fuse traditional elements into their wedding day. The ceremony was presented in both Korean and English. B+G’s mothers wore traditional hanboks. Members of their local church choir attended the ceremony to provide a special serenade. The guest book encouraged guests to leave a special note. The envelopes were sealed, and will be opened in the future. Very simple, beautiful and elegant decorations for the reception ballroom. Dancing followed the meal, and included a mix of western tunes and Korean Pop.
