Who Knew That It Would Be Seoul Nice?

I just got back with my kids from their pre-wedding photography shoot in Seoul, South Korea. I was trying my best to seize the moments behind the scene and freeze these precious memories in a rectangular frame.

I watched my baby… She’s a sight to behold! Oh well, you know the saying, “Mothers are biased!” and I’m guilty in the first degree 😉

Someone to understand
Each little dream in me
Someone to take my hand
And be a team with me

So nice, life would be so nice
If one day I’d find
Someone who would take my hand
And samba through life with me

Someone to take my heart
And give his heart to me
Someone who’s ready to
Give love a start with me

Oh yes, that would be so nice, nice
Shouldn’t we, you and me?
I could see it would be nice!

– part lyrics of the song “So Nice”

I spent hours trying to figure out how to make this video with iMovie and then realised it won’t upload so YouTube to the rescue! 😀

Here's to the groom with bride so fair, "Coming together is a beginning; keeping together is progress; working together is success! May you never forget what is worth remembering and never remember what is best forgotten."

They woke up at 5am and had been chaperoned and fussed about the whole day by the wedding nannies. They’re not quite done yet.

Here comes the traditional "Korean" bride.

From this day forward, you shall not walk alone.
My heart will be your shelter and my arms will be your home.

She's really enjoying the ride, lol...

My wish and blessings are for them to love and appreciate each other in their new journey in life.

Recipe for a Successful Marriage:
Ingredients:
4 lbs of love
1 lb of youth
0.5 lb of good looks
1 lb of sweet temper
1 lb of blindness to faults
1 lb of self-forgetfulness
1 lb of powdered wit
1 lb of good humour
2 tbsps of sweet argument
1 pint of rippling laughter
1 wine glass of common sense
1 oz of modesty

Instructions:
Put the love, good looks and sweet temper into a well-furnished house. Beat the butter of youth to a cream and mix well to blindness of faults.

Stir the pounded wit and good humour in to the sweet argument; then add the rippling laughter and common sense. Work the rest of the ingredients together until everything is mixed and bake gently forever!

(Found in a church book of recipes about 1900AD).

Once in a while, right in the middle of a humdrum life… Love gives us a fairy tale.

Have a happy week ahead 🙂
