When Min and John met on a mission trip, something seemed strangely familiar. It wasn’t long before they were pouring through old childhood photos, realizing they had grown up together going to the same Korean school on Saturdays. After high school, they parted ways for college, not knowing what the future would hold for their relationship. Eventually, though, the threads of connection pulled them back together in Miami, where Min and John began a five-year-long relationship.
“We went thought a lot and really tested our relationship,” Min remembers. John, being a member of the military, was sent to Iraq for a year. “Having that faith that he will soon return safely,” was what got Min through the tough moments.
It was at the celebration of his safe return home, that John got down on one knee and proposed to Min, surrounded by his military friends.
“My first words were, ‘Shut up’ thinking this was all a joke,” Min says. ”I then quickly realized it wasn’t a joke and John was still on one knee waiting for an answer. I of course said YES!”
And the rest, as they say, is history! Michelle Lawson Photography had the honor of taking their Engagement Photos. The couple then got their dream wedding at the Hyatt Regency Pier Sixty-Six in Fort Lauderdale, FL. To compliment their rich family traditions and also their personal and professional interests, Min and John created a beautiful, vibrant, Korean, military, South Florida-style wedding. Not only that, but they wanted to include us in their day, having us photograph each amazing moment! After you see the photos, check out their review of us on Wedding Wire, too!
