I can relate better to couples now about their wedding planning highs and woes, now as I prepare for my own wedding. So much thought goes into it when you see what wonderful things others have done, and the more features you see on the Internet. My bride, like many, is hooked on Pinterest while I, like many grooms, wonder how much impact these things will have on our budget. ;)

But then comes a wedding that reminded us both of an important truth: a wedding, though the most special day of one's life, does not necessarily have to be a spectacle of an event. It's a beautiful and solemn ritual that brings a man and a woman together making them, their lives, and their families one. And that's all you need, everything else are cherries on the wonderful slice of the rest of your life.

Migo and Monica's wedding was just that: solemn and beautiful. Surrounded by family, blanketed with love, filled with so much joy, and sealed with a vow.

DongHee X Tere 결혼식

When it's real, love knows no distance. There is no barrier between countries, time zones, or even languages that could keep two souls from being together. The Groom was from South Korea, the Bride is a Filipina who was based in Finland. He barely knew English, but luckily she had already learned some Korean.

It was a wedding coordinated from separate parts of the globe, but had not suffered in charm and exquisite simplicity. Details were lovingly handcrafted by the bride herself, such as the DIY pinwheels that had accented outfits, the church, and the reception venue. All were put together to make special an event that unified Faith and Family.

I truly enjoyed having the privilege to shoot this special event, ending my year 2014 right. Yep, that's right, this wedding took place on the morning of December 31!! Not usually a common date to schedule a wedding, but on the flipside, that just means that this pair got to start 2015 as husband and wife. And our team was glad to have been part of their very special day. Check out this fun and colorful DIY wedding shoot! Miso!

미소 ! :)
