Our Korean Wedding Ceremony

Our Korean Wedding Ceremony


– [Emcee] All right, ladies and gentlemen, just wanna let you know the Korean Ceremony is
gonna start right about now. (gentle orchestral music) (upbeat music) (title booms) – [Emcee] We would like everybody to please direct your attention this way these curtains are going to open up and the ceremony is going to be in the room where the
ceremony was earlier. So once again we’d like everybody to please direct your attention this way, these curtains are going to open up, and the Korean Ceremony is going to begin that way right there.
(guests cheering) – Okay, so we wanted to
kind of explain step-by-step how this Paebaek Korean Ceremony went. So, the first thing that
we had to do, basically, we had to show both sides of our families honor and respect by bowing to each other, so that was kinda cool ’cause
we’ve done that in the past. – I had a difficult time
trying to stand up straight for some reason. I think it was nerves ’cause every time, I was like, please, I hope
they’re not judgin’ me. (guests applaud and cheer)
(upbeat music) – So apart from the bow, one way that we knew that
our parents, both sides, accepted Matt and accepted me was that they took a
shot of wine (laughs). – I was focusin’ like, come
on, do it, do it, do it. – They did it right away!
– Yeah, yeah! I was so happy, man, it felt great. – [Woman] (speaking in foreign language) And congratulations, Matt, they have officially accepted you! (guests applauding and cheering) – My mom doesn’t drink alcohol just because of health reasons, so, we thought it was real wine.
– Yeah (chuckles). – I’m a bad son because
I was just lookin’ like, “Oh yeah, just go ahead drink it, like, “get turnt up, mom.” And Glory was like, “Wait!” – Yeah! (laughing) – [Woman] Please take one
full shot of your wine. – [Glory] Hold on, hold on,
hold on. Is that real wine? (guests laughing) – It’s water? Oh, okay! – [Woman] It’s fake wine. (guests laugh) – I didn’t wanna disrupt everything, but it was kind of a lighthearted moment ’cause everyone was laughing anyways. – Yeah. – And congratulations, Glory
is officially accepted. (guests cheer and clap) – Okay, so one thing that
is super fun and popular about Pyebaek ceremonies is the tradition of throwing chestnuts and dates, which represent the amount of children that you’re gonna have in the future, which was my favorite part! (laughing) – [Woman] Okay, ready? (speaks in foreign language) (record scratching) – I want you right now to pause the video, and write in the comments how many kids you think we’re gonna have. After you do it, press play
and see if you got it right. – [Woman] Okay, ready? (speaks in foreign language) (audience shouts and claps) – (screaming) – [Woman] That’s six children! Congratulations!
(guests shout and clap) – [Guests] How many? – [Woman] Okay, it’s six, six babies! (guests cheer) – There, we got six. – If I woulda known that, I woulda just straight, yee! – (laughing) – Throw all them chestnuts up! So then my mom went up, and I’m like, “Mom, you got me, yo.” – [Woman] Okay mom, are you ready? On the count of three. One, two, three! – [Glory] Whoo!
(guests applaud) – [Woman] (foreign language)
Eight children total! – [Glory] (screaming)
(guests cheering) – Eight? And then she threw an additional two! – We’re gonna have eight children! We better start now, bye guys! No, I’m kidding! (chuckles) Another fun thing that
me and Matt argue about is if we want a boy or girl first. – [Woman] For your first child, would you guys like a son or a daughter? – Daughter, daughter!
– A son, a son! – [Woman] (laughing) – And so another thing that we had to do was we had to take the dates
and put it in our mouths, but when she said that, I
thought she meant the whole thing in my mouth. – [Woman] And Glory, don’t eat it yet. Just hold it in your cheek, okay? Oh, don’t! (laughing) Hold up, let’s try this again. – I put the whole thing in my mouth ’cause I was hungry (laughing). So, whoever ends up with
the seed when they bite it, ’cause it’s like there’s
two openings on the date that goes that way or this way, gets the gender of the kid that they want. So this is what happened. – [Woman] Okay, Matt,
we’re going to put this in Glory’s mouth. Glory, do not eat it. Just hold it in your teeth. And Matt, please put your
hands up on her shoulders. Face each other, put your
hands up on her shoulders. On both shoulders. – Oh!
– (laughing) – [Woman] Okay, ready? Go! – [Guest] Go, go, go, go! (guests scream and clap) – [Woman] Seed belongs to? – I got it!
(guests cheer) – [Woman] Congratulations, it is a son! (guests cheer and applaud) – Gonna get me Matthew, Junior after all, baby, hey! So, the last thing I had to do was I had to give Glory a
piggy-back ride around the table to show that I will love and
support her and our family. – [Woman] (murmurs)
Matt, please turn around. Glory, Glory? Glory, we’re going to jump right up, okay? One, two, three! – Whoo!
– [Woman] All right, you guys, give us an applause for true love! (guests cheer and applaud) – Wait, all the way where? – [Glory] All the way! – Oh!
– [Guest] This way, this way! – (laughing) (guests cheering) – [Woman] Alright,
congratulations you guys! Thank you, enjoy the rest of your night! (guests cheer and clap) – I got confused! – (laughing) – It was a lot of noise, and
I didn’t know what happened, so I ended up piggy-back ridin’ her through the whole event.
– (giggles) But, you did it. – I would say for someone that’s outside of the Korean culture, and to be able to bring
that into our ceremony was a very, very special thing. And I wanna give a shout out to bdkmint, the same people
that made our custom, han, han, Hanboks, hanboks, yes!
– Yeah! (laughing) – The same people that
made our custom hanboks. They did our Pyebaek ceremony
and it was fantastic! If you’re thinkin’ about doin’ one, you should sign up with them! – Yeah, and we’re not just saying it. They’re based in Philly, and
we actually live in Maryland, so it was like a trip to go
there. But it was so fun. Jessica is so good! Her assistant, Sylvia, is also so good as you saw in the montage. They know exactly what they’re doing, they were super on time,
we had time constraints. They were really good under pressure. – And we purposefully left some things out of the Pyebaek ceremony just so it could be special for you. So we didn’t wanna spoil everything in case this is somethin’
that you wanna do for your ceremony. So if the Pyebaek ceremony is
somethin’ that you wanna do, definitely check out the
link in the description. They can make your hanboks
and do the Pyebaek ceremony, and they are fantastic,
we love them so much! – Thanks for watchin’ this, and stay tuned for the video next week because we got the video, I cried. Obviously. You guys ain’t ready, y’all ain’t ready! – Be there, or be outta the loop. (laughing) Peace!
