Jun and Nowie are from the bay area. Their friends and families are also from San Francisco. Now, you must be wondering why on earth they would get married in Chicago. Trust me, you weren’t the only one. When we first chatted, I tried avoiding the question but I couldn’t help but to wonder and if you know me even a little, you’ll know that I speak my mind. This situation was no different and right after we exchanged greetings, I asked, why chicago?.
Well, during a spontaneous trip to chicago – they stopped by the Chicago Cultural Center and the tiffany dome caught their eye. Later in the evening, over dinner, Nowie breaks the silence. ‘alright, what’s up? what’s on your mind?’ And that was the moment. That was the moment that changed everything. That moment brought over one hundred and forty of their closest friends and family members from the bay to the midwest. Here’s a little treat, because you guys deserve it: when Nowie called her mom, she was praying for them while they were gazing at the tiffany dome. boom. The power of prayer ya dig.
As their wedding day approached, Jun & Nowie created a timeline for their bridal party and others that wanted to explore this wonderful city of ours! They scheduled one of those architecture boat tours on the chicago river. Normally, this information wouldn’t be interesting to me but because they visited Chicago and fell in love with a piece of architecture, I thought it would be pretty sweet to join them on this tour – and it was.
From the little time I spent with Jun & Nowie, I learned a lot about who they are and what they hold dear to themselves. They’re adventurous. Getting married in a city based on a spontaneous visit? They are major foodies. When I spoke to Jun during the boat tour, he described his week with his food. Oh, and at their reception, they had a chicago styled hot dog stand for their guests! They’re very different from each other. While in the same car, he’s burning up and wanted the a/c on – she’s freezing cold and wants the heat on. She’s a pork and eggs kinda gal while he’s on that yogurt & fruit. He’s up at sunrise watching cycling on a saturday while she’s asleep til noon. She does things with haste, while he takes his time. Definitely opposites. One thing they have in common though, is their love for their friends / families, and are loved in return. Most of all, they love Jesus.
