Volunteer Park Wedding Portrait with Seattle Space Needle

 

Malim Park and Charles Stoner chose Seattle’s first boutique hotel the Sorrento Hotel as the venue for their wedding ceremonies last month. A western-style wedding ceremony in the Top of the Town ballroom was first. Then they changed clothes for a Korean wedding or Paebeck ceremony in the Penthouse of the Sorrento Hotel.

They wore custom Korean Hanbock or traditional Korean dress to their Paebeck ceremony. In short, the Korean Paebaek Ceremony symbolizes the joining of  families, not just the bride and groom. The couple has tea and then show their respect for their new families. The parents and other older relatives impart advice and wisdom on what it takes to make a marriage a success. They throw dates & chestnuts onto a part of the brides robe in an effort to predict the number & sex of their future offspring. Chestnuts are believed to predict the number of boys and dates predict the number of girls. The ceremony then ended with the groom giving the bride a piggy-back ride, symbolizing his strength and how he will be responsible for taking care of the bride. I am posting just one picture from each ceremony here now but there will be more when the editing is complete.

Below are my favorite pictures from their wedding and below them is a slideshow of a more complete set of  their wedding pictures. Special  thanks to my assistant photographer Monica Frisell. Here is a link to the web gallery with all of Malim and Charles  wedding pictures.
