As it often happens, we met an engaged couple, and they were the opposite of high maintenance. Their primary wish was to celebrate and see their closest family and friends have a good time in an intimate setting. But as mentioned in their engagement session post, Kar-Mun and Steve wasn’t about to have a cookie cutter wedding. Both being such amazing classical musicians, their wedding ceremony was performed by a wonderful quartet of their friends, and it was one of the best music Dan and I heard at a wedding. The couple got married at the Harvard Faculty Club, home of where they met as undergrads.
Having both Korean and Chinese cultures present, the day started with the groom’s friends walking over to carry the bride to the ceremony.
The groom’s party had to earn the privilege to escort the bride by doing pleasing the crowd. They danced as the crowd hummed Habanera from Carmen. Chinese Tea Ceremony The weather held on just long enough to get the formal portraits taken of the bride and groom, then the drizzles took the ceremony to the back up location, the library of the Harvard Faculty Club. Instead of the traditional dancing of the bride and groom, they entertained the guests by playing each others’ instruments. Then the main performance began when they swapped instruments. The Korean Pae-Bek Ceremony. Steve’s parents are blessing the couple to have many children.
Congratulations Steve and Kar-Mun!
