MY FIRST KOREAN WEDDING
My first Korean wedding experience was a celebration of beauty.
Korean weddings seem to be a fusion of modern and traditional practices. In fact, much of Korean culture is fused with other influences. The ceremony was very similar to weddings in the United States; however, after the service, more traditional rituals such as the tossing of chestnuts occurred.
And no, I wasn't the groom. Even though the photo above would lead you to believe otherwise. She's quite the catch!
