seoul 09: part 넷

following the official ceremony in front of guests, the wedding ends with Pyebaek , a private ceremony that welcomes the bride into the grooms family.

what a cutie-patootie, my judybob!! :)


lucas grabbing a quick shut-eye while getting primped by their wedding planner.

there was a lot of bowing and , like the chinese tea-ceremony, they offer elders wine or soju!

and in turn they offer well-wishes, marriage advice and presents!

lucas's parents tossing jujubes and chestnuts at the wedding couple. they are meant to catch as many with her long skirt. the number of jujubes and chestnut retained symbolizes how many babies they'll share together!! : )  

fortunately, these kids have superb hand-eye coordination. they're going to be blessed with a truckload of (beautiful) children!!! lucas's uncle quickly did the math and announced that judy would be pregnant for (10) years in total! *sweats*

my FAVORITE part! they share a date between them (my guess is a symbollism of a sweet life ahead!) and whoever ends up with the seed wears the pants in the relationship! see how determined judy is to grip on to the seed? :) :) :) 

Additionally, the groom often gives a piggy back ride to his bride, symbolizing his acceptance of his obligations to her..

wedding elves, me & yoomee.


the blissful couple!! we wish you all the bestest and finest life has to offer. we love you heaps and cant wait to see pictures of Maldives and the W!! :) xxx
