The traditional Korean wedding ceremony is called a Paebeck. The couple are dressed in beautiful, traditional Homboks. It is a colorful and fun ceremony marked by a tea ceremony shared with the parents and family of the couple. This includes a whole lot of bowing so the bride usually needs the help of bridesmaids in her heavy Hombok. It also includes the bride and groom catching dates thrown by the parents in an ornate sheet which symbolizes the number of children that the couple will bring into the family. Next the couple shares a date and the grand finale is when the bride hops on the groom’s back and he carries her around the room ‘piggy-back’ style. Sae and I had a Paebeck at our wedding and it is still one of my favorite parts to look back on.

This stunning beauty makes portrait photography fun and easy. Jeanie is a fabulous stylist who’s Posh Salon here in Austin is the only place I go for great coloring, cuts, make up and styling. People are always asking me how I rock the pink streak in my hair and Jeanie is my artist.

Casa Blanca on Brushy Creek was the serene setting for this very special wedding. Sae Cho and I greatly anticipated photographing and attending this wedding for many reasons. Not the least of which is because David is Sae’s youngest brother (first from the bottom) and Megan is now our sister-in-law! We are so happy for them and us officially expanding our big happy family. Check out their engagement photos and Megan’s bridal photos on our blog. Then come back to see their Paebeck (Korean wedding ceremony) and the reception.
No, you are not drunk and seeing double…well, maybe you’re drunk, how would I know? Sae’s brother’s are twins, that’s Patrick on the left hand side (though they could have switched to see if someone noticed and fooled a few people in the family). Can you find Sae and I in the photo? Yes, this is still Cho Photography. We set up the camera remotely to take the photo.
