WEDDING: Oxford Hotel Ceremony in Los Angeles, CA

CONGRATULATIONS, Sophia and Bobby!

Beautiful, beautiful!!! Despite a short delay as we waited for the piano player (who was caught up in traffic, because she had gone to the wrong hotel), this wedding in the heart of Los Angeles' Koreatown was a huge success.

As a tribute to the bride's Korean heritage and culture, the couple chose to bow to their parents during the ceremony. Bowing to parents is a sign of deep respect and acknowledges ancestors and families past and present. The tradition has its roots in pae baek, which is a formal Korean wedding ceremony involving bowing and fertility rites.

For a modern, individualized approach to the tradition of ceremony:
Los Angeles Officiant/Orange County Officiant
