As a young Korean American couple living on a budget, we wanted to have a wedding honoring our Korean parents without compromising our own style and fun. Traditionally, Korean weddings are celebrated honoring the bride and groom’s parents where the guest list can be anywhere from 250 to 500+ people of mostly friends of the parents– that meant having an open invite wedding. A wedding with a guest list of 300 people can be bad for the pocketbook of a budget minded couple in NYC. This meant bringing out the true Martha Stewart in me. From the programs to the flowers, cupcakes to the even the Emcee and DJ, our wedding was mostly handmade/DIY with the help of our dearest family and friends. Our parents had their fun during the ceremony and dinner reception which was held at our church. Afterwards, close friends and family headed over to Gary’s Loft for a post reception with a more personal touch of who we are as a couple. Thanks to Gary’s Loft, we had a country meets city theme in the heart of Midtown Manhattan. With heartfelt toasts, photobooth frenzies, and some good ‘ol booty shaking the work put out was well worth it.
