A Community-Made San Francisco Church Wedding

With a traditional Korean gown for the reception

One sentence sum-up of the wedding vibe: Simple and intimate.

Other Cool Stuff We Should Know About

Our wedding was a community effort! Thanks to our wildly talented friends—like the bride’s best man Alex who made a delicious carrot cake for us, our friend Ed Winston who designed the invitations, and our friend Virginia who is a master with flower arrangements.

Favorite Thing About The Wedding

Soo: Catching chestnuts and chilies in my traditional Korean dress (Korean tradition) and learning we would have fifteen children (the chestnuts and chilies represent how many boys and girls we would have).

Eric: Sitting in that little room right after the ceremony where we signed the marriage certificate. That’s when it really started to sink in.
