This third and final installment from Kristy and Eric’s wedding at Serendipity Garden Weddings will focus on their Korean Paebaek ceremony. In the past, the Pae Baek was conducted with a degree of solemnity the day before the wedding. Today, it remains a formal introduction and acceptance of the bride into the groom’s family often on the wedding day itself, as in Kristy and Eric’s case. Often held in a small room with just immediate family, Kristy and Eric opened the doors of the bridal suite and allowed their wedding guests a glimpse of this colorful ceremony that united the two families together.
Kristy and Eric changed into their Hanbok, which is the traditional clothing many Koreans wear on special occasions. During Paebaek, the outfits are supplemented with robes and headdresses. Eric’s headpiece is called the moja.
Legend has it that the number of dates and walnuts that are caught in the brides apron will signify how many girls (dates) and boys (walnuts) the couple will bear. According to Kristy’s apron, they will be having lots and lots of girls! 😉
Kristy and Eric’s wedding day was filled to the brim love and beauty and we want to thank them for trusting us on this very special occasion! We wish them many years of happiness together!
Enjoy the slideshow!
