MY FIRST KOREAN WEDDING

With the beautiful bride of a Korean wedding in Cheongju, South Korea.

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!
