Our school secretary, Chloe, got married tonight and she invited everyone from school. I was very excited to attend a Korean wedding. I took a lot of pictures, so great ready!
Chloe's wedding was held at this building. This place is only for weddings.
See, these floors are lobby, 3 banquet floors, the chapel, a floor for the bride and the "traditional ceremony" floor. There can be a couple weddings going on simultaniously.
|Here we are, all dressed up and ready for a wedding|
|The location is in Gangnam|
|This is Chloe's mom! She is wearing a traditional Korean.... outfit (I can't remember what it's called). |
The groom's mom also wore one, but in a different color
This is the where the ceremony was held. There was a woman who was kind of MCing it. There was lots of music and lots of singing and, surprisingly, clapping.
|The part of the ceremony where we clap for Chloe's parents|
|Chloe got choked up and hid her face behind her bouquet|
|Toward the end of the ceremony, some people had roses to give to the couple. They were called out to the back of the hall and were able to walk up and give them the flower|
|Every time Chloe got choked up, this woman jumped up and gently blotted off her face|
|Family picture (right after that it was work friends picture!)|
Now, let me tell you about the reception! Awesome!
|Do you see that flower on that little spoon? That flower is made of frosting and it's attached to a sugar cube-it's for your coffee. How cute is that?|
|1st course: Lox, little salad, creamy-cheesey stuff. Delicious!|
|These are on the table. Mmmm. Looks like a variety of cakes, doesn't it? It's not. Those are rice cakes.|
|You think it's a brownie? Don't be fooled! It's made out of red bean.|
|In case you can't see the head table, you can watch them on TV|
|2nd course: teeny tiny potato|
|Wait-what's that? Oh, THIS is the 2nd course. Like an idiot, I'd already started eating my teeny potato before they came around with the most wonderful squash soup I've ever had (to pour over the teeny potato)|
|Miller eating the 3rd course: A tomoato stuffed with crab|
|There's crab in there!|
|Texting during dinner?! I'm just jealous because I don't have my phone yet. I can't wait to text during dinner!|
|Mark, our kindergarten teacher, sang a song|
|Yes. the main course.|
|Miller and Katie enjoying delicious steak. Jamie trying to remember how to say "vegetarian" in Korean.|
|there are so many courses I've lost track. SOUP!|
|Jamie and Bonny calling themselves "vegetables", but getting the point across that they don't want meat. Two bowls of vegetables were brought out for them|
|A visit from Chloe!|
|Coffee and DESSERT-my favorite|
|Joslyn, Amalia, Lisa|
|Ricki: See I can text!|
Bonny: Neat. I don't have a phone yet
|Chloe made this cake. I wonder who gets to eat this one?|
|Me and Chloe|
|Bonny and Mark discussing the disappointing yet slight drop in the exchange rate today|
|Chloe and her husband.|
What a great night. Tomorrow I get a phone! And a car!
