As I have shown before Korean weddings are something to laugh at and also feel estranged with. Rob was indeed marrying a Korean but it seemed he went to great lengths to make sure his wedding was special and memorable. Unlike typical Korean weddings where people talk through it and then stuff themselves at a buffet, this one was well orchestrated and also sentimental.
I arrived while people were still gathering and taking pictures. The location was on a boat-type-house on the Han river overlooking the Namsan tower and Banpo bridge.
Then Rob waited as his fiancee walked up to him.
The best part, though, was when a video montage was played with both the fiancee's and Rob's voice talking about their love. It was so personal and touching that it made you really understand that these two were soul mates. Check out my video at the end of this post for a sample of their reel.
Ah who's this??? hmmm ;)
In the middle of dining the new couple were being photographed with family and friends. The foreigners were called in and I had to get up to stand in with them.
Rob mentioned how he was proud to have a large amount of his friends to balance the Korean side.
It was back for dinner time.
They opened the curtains and the great view was revealed.
It was a great festival and celebration of love. Yet it was Sunday and work was just around the corner, so JH and I headed back home.
Congratulations Rob! Have a great honeymooooon. ;)
