A modern, minimalist tone carried through every element of Jane and Colin’s summer Korean-American micro wedding.
Jane and Colin started their wedding day by getting ready in the farm house. Jane dressed in a modern wedding dress with lace bodice and light, flowing fabric perfect for the summer day. She maintained the playful tone with a headband and a scalloped, fingertip-length veil.
Tied around the stems of her bouquet, Jane carried small photos in memory of family members who couldn’t be there to celebrate with them.
Once dressed, Jane met Colin, who wore a classic black tuxedo, for a first look and a few moments alone before their ceremony.
AN INDOOR CEREMONY
The couple said “I do” at a bright, indoor ceremony in the lower level of the dairy barn. As their guests entered, they were invited to sign small wooden hearts that served as Jane and Colin’s guest book.
During the procession, Jane and Colin’s mothers each lit a candle. At the end of the ceremony, Jane and Colin took these flames and lit one, central candle. This tradition, called a unity candle, symbolizes the joining of their families as one.
The couple included elements of her Jane’s Korean culture in their ceremony. For example, Jane’s mother and family members wore traditional Korean hanbok and Jane and Colin ended their ceremony with a bow in the Korean style.
A BARN RECEPTION
After a few portraits with family and their small wedding party, Jane and Colin stole away to the fields for their first photos alone together as a married couple. They then joined their guests to celebrate in the upper level of the dairy barn.
Beneath the high ceiling and string lights, a champagne escort wall welcomed guests with bubbly and guided them to their seats. In keeping with the black and white color palette, guest tables were arranged banquet-style with white linens and black chairs. And at each place setting sat a modern black and gold matchbook, which served as guest favors.
Love and laughter filled the space through toasts and speeches, and a small, sleek white wedding cake matched the minimalist aesthetic of the day. The festivities ended with Jane and Colin’s first dance, marking the start of their married life together, full of joy and surrounded by love.
We loved hosting Jane and Colin’s modern Korean-American micro wedding and wish them all the happiness!
