They met in church and became fast friends.  Don't all great relationships start out that way, with a strong foundation of friendship?  Jenny was attracted to Ki Joon's warmth, instantly recognizing his generous heart.  Ki Joon fell in love with Jenny's charisma and ambition.  He could tell she had a passion for life and was excited by the joy she brought to every situation.   Together, they made the perfect pair, each bringing different strengths to their relationship.

After two wonderful years together, Jenny and Ki Joon's wedding day arrived.  Pulling up to the Carinwood Estate in Byrn Athyn, PA, I was blown away by the regal stature of the mansion. Small snowflakes gently falling all around quickly gave way to blue skies.  Entering Carinwood, I couldn't help but smile.  Beautiful light flooded in large windows and sparkling Christmas lights were hung all around.    Jenny was in her bridal suite getting ready with her closest girlfriends. She was calm, confident, and absolutely glowing.  Ki Joon was all smiles, as always.  Surrounded by his groomsmen, he anxiously awaited the moment when he could call Jenny his wife.  When the time came to say "I do", tears of joy could be seen in both of their eyes.  Under the magical lights of the Christmas tree, Jenny and Ki Joon pledged to spend forever loving one another.   Everything was perfect, just as it should be.

Jenny and Ki Joon, thank you for allowing me to share one of the most important days in your life with you.  It was a true pleasure documenting your love story.  I wish you much love and happiness as you embark on this new journey together.

The Carinwood Estate is massive...and Jenny and Ki Joon had it all to themselves!

Jenny's dress was elegant with a fun flair, just like her. 

Zipping up the dress made everyone feel like the day had begun.

Jenny, you are simply stunning.

Jenny's bridesmaids were completely supportive of their beautiful friend on her wedding day.

Ki Joon and his groomsmen lounged around on leather chairs as they got ready in a study set aside just for them.

Jenny and Ki Joon opted for a first look at the top of the stairs.  Seeing their reactions was my favorite part of the whole day.

After the first look, we headed out to the balcony for a few pictures before the ceremony.
This is one of my favorites.  You both look FABULOUS.  

The ceremony was held in the foyer of the mansion, under a large Christmas tree.

Jenny made her grand entrance by ascending down the stairs, escorted by her father.   

The ceremony was intimate, with guests watching from the floor, the stairs, and the balcony.

After the ceremony, Jenny's mother and father embraced her.  They are so happy for their daughter.  
A large spread of delicious looking sushi awaited guests at cocktail hour.  Thanks to my second shooter Mekina for capturing these precious shots.  

A red velvet wedding cake was the perfect treat after an amazing dinner by Stephen Starr.

At Jenny and Ki Joon's wedding, the dance floor was the place to be!  It was completely packed ALL NIGHT! 

Tiny lights glowed all around this sweet couple as they shared their first dance.

Jenny and Ki Joon, thank you for letting me be a part of your wedding day.  I hope you enjoyed your honeymoon in Disney World and are settling in to your new lives together.

  1. Amy,
    Wow! These wedding photos are amazing. It looks like you effectively captured the wedding. It was beautiful and it looked like everyone was having a great time. The pictures lit by candle light are amazing. The picture with Jenny's mom and dad in an embrace is my favorite (priceless)! I also like the photo outside looking in (very creative). Congratulations!
