Korean Traditional Wedding.

3 06 2010

Thanks to my dear friend Soon, that I got an opportunity to witness this Lavish yet Traditional Korean Wedding. It was an awesome experience for me and luckily the commentators were explaining the rituals in English. So here are pictures with detailed description about the rituals from what I remember..
