From the very first day of medical school, Joan and Stephen were inseparable. They share a story-book love and held a stunning and warm celebration to match! We are still giggling thinking about the speech shared at the wedding by the best man and college friend that witnessed their beautiful and sweet relationship develop over the years.

With Joan's Korean heritage, Stephen knew that he wanted to propose in Korea where her family resides. So, in the city of Seoul at night while crossing a sweet little bridge, Stephen got down on one knee to pop the question.

Joan and Stephen knew immediately upon visiting the gorgeous Kirkland Manor House and property on the Eastern Shore of Maryland that it would be the absolute perfect location to celebrate their wedding. They wanted to host their event somewhere that would allow all of their out-of-town guests to enjoy the serene waterfront views and to have a place to relax and call home for the weekend.

The celebration began on the night before the wedding with a beautiful Korean wedding ceremony in traditional Korean wedding attire with their immediate family members. On the wedding day, Moore & Co. Event Stylists along with Blush Floral Design Studio created a gorgeous setting with a soft and dreamy color palette of lavender, whites, and greens.

There were so many truly heartfelt moments throughout the day with a father-daughter first look that made everyone in the room shed a few tears. We especially fell in love with this couple's "tree-planting ceremony" in which they combined and used the soil from each of their hometowns to plant one family tree symbolizing their unity. The reception did not disappoint with Joan & Stephen performing a super fun, choreographed Gangnam style dance that made everyone get out on the dance floor!
