Marshall & Christine’s wedding was awesome, and the reception was AWESOME. Everybody danced. There was this older Korean couple who Laura swore only got up to dance to the Black Eyed Peas.
The reception started off with a traditional Korean ceremony where Christine & Marshall bowed to relatives from both sides of the family, accepted gifts, etc. The parents of the bride and groom would thrown chestnuts and dates to the bride, who’d catch them in her skirt. The number of each caught would dictate how many boys and girls they’d have. Christine caught a lot of dates and chestnuts in her skirt. Like, 14 chestnuts and 9 dates or something. Oh dear.
Pictures, another video, and a detailed recap to follow. This video depicts a Korean tradition, where the groom carries the bride on his back. I wish my camera wouldn’t stop recording audio when I’d zoom in. The lady in the lavender hanbok is the best friend of Marshall’s mother. She helped Christine with her bowing (as she had to keep her arms folded in front of her eyes, and could not use them as she stooped down and popped up) during the ceremony.
