Korean Westwood Country Club Wedding

Michelle and Charles were married this past November at Westwood Country Club — and I just love their Korean Wedding Ceremony! Here is a huge dose of pretty to get your week started!

Michelle tells us…
“Initially we had a very modern concept for the wedding, but then we went with the Westwood Country Club which has a very classic feel to it, so we actually ended up going a bit more classical but giving it a little touch of color. I love pink, so we went with pink and felt gray was a nice match. The room has very high ceilings so we wanted flower arrangements that would be elegant and classy but give the room a full feeling, so we felt that dendrobium orchids were the perfect choice.

We chose the Dupont Hotel in Washington, DC to keep the modern element in our wedding. We loved the private lounge on the top floor which we loved for our photos. The groom and the groomsmen got ready at the hotel and I got ready with the bridesmaids at the club lounge of one of my bridesmaids condominium.

Both my husband and I are Korean, which is why it was important to include our culture into our wedding day. We wanted to do the traditional Korean Wedding Ceremony, and decided the best time to do it was during the cocktail hour. It was hectic, but totally worth it. The ceremony is called Paebaek and the husbands parents will throw dates and chesnuts, dates represent daughters and chesnuts represent sons. The bride and groom will try to catch as many dates and chesnuts and the total caught represents how many children they will have. We caught two dates and two chesnuts, so two daughters and two sons for us!”
