I love the submissions I get from Marc with Pier23 Photography – they are always uniquely beautiful and full of personality. Today’s Washington, DC wedding from him is no different – meet Eric & Eurae and their personalized, multicultural DC wedding!
I loved this wedding from the minute I saw it … but I loved it even more because you might recognize the second bridesmaid in from the left – that’s right! It’s the lovely Amber from Live It Out Photography!!! This beautiful note from Eurae pretty much sets the stage for their entire wedding day:
We wanted the day to reflect not only our love for each other and our interests as a couple, but also the people who had supported and loved us for so long.
Just beautiful :)
Eric & Eurae’s Multicultural, Personalized Washington DC Wedding
About the couple’s love story:
Eric and I met in 6th grade, so our wedding day was filled with love and support from family and friends we had built relationships together with for almost 20 years.
On the adorable book theme for their wedding & book themed wedding details:
Our reception, like our engagement photo shoot, had a book theme.
Name cards were hand-stamped book marks that were wedged into a stack of our favorite books, scrabble tiles spelled out messages on the guestbook table, centerpieces were mason jars and votive holders wrapped in my mom’s old lace filled with flowers and candles and placed atop more books.
Eurae went the sensible route with her neutral color palette and let her bridesmaids pick whatever dress they wanted! (I always love this)
It was important for me to allow my bridesmaids to choose their own dresses so that they could feel beautiful in something that fit their individual body types and personal styles. They did a spectacular job selecting unique choices that all looked great together as a group.

Our wedding party included siblings, best friends from childhood and college.
In order to add a personal touch and save money, we made almost all of our decorations.
How adorable is this book themed escort card display? Topped with the yard letters, it’s just so cook!
During cocktail hour, Eric and I changed into traditional Korean wedding clothing and participated in a traditional Korean wedding ceremony in front of our guests.
Eurae share’s the important their multicultural backgrounds played in their wedding day:
It was so special to incorporate elements from my heritage in the wedding as well as have my in-laws participate by throwing chestnuts and dates for us to catch in my dress to predict how many children we would have. It was a beautiful day
