Sometimes love is waiting just around the corner. Sometimes love has to travel from two different continents and into a hospital where two brilliant people are just starting their lives in the medical field. Boyi and Sook’s love story mirrors the latter.

It truly was fate that brought Boyi and Sook together that day. Sook was meant to be shadowing another colleague on the day she met her future husband, but their story began when Boyi offered to let her shadow him instead. A few years later, he asked her to be his wife and they began to plan a celebration of love that honored and encompassed their Chinese and Korean cultures.

Boyi and Sook’s childhoods were similar. Both of their parents made huge sacrifices so their children could have access to beautiful lives and the best education. It was very important to both Boyi and Sook that they honored their parents by paying tribute to their cultures on their wedding day. The result was a perfect blend of many beautiful traditions, all honoring their heritages.

Boyi and Sook showed us that love is about honoring one another. It’s about learning and teaching, nurturing and growing. We were honored to capture their beautifully blended love story and are so excited to share it with you!

Take care of your marriage and you will be very happy.
