Minjoo and Norman met during their undergrad years. Fate brought them together at the university library when Norman sat down to share a study table with Minjoo, and the rest was history, as the saying goes.
Norman proposed to Minjoo at the Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta. On several occasions, Minjoo had shared with Norman all of the fond memories she had there with her parents, watching the amazing whale sharks in awe. This inspired Norman to plan an incredibly romantic surprise for Minjoo where, not only would they visit her favorite aquarium together, but would also enjoy a behind-the-scenes tour of the entire facility, which he had helped coordinate. Being the largest aquarium in the western world, Minjoo was far beyond excited to suspect any more surprises waiting for her at the end of the tour.
With the help of the scuba divers inside the whale shark tank, Norman, amongst a picturesque backdrop of aquatic life, gave Minjoo the surprise of a lifetime when she turned around to find the divers holding up a sign reading "Will you Marry Me" and Norman on one knee.
Minjoo and Norman both wanted a location for their wedding that was unique, warm, sunny, and just far enough away for the location to serve as a vacation spot for their friends and families. Casa Marina Resort in Key West offered just that.
Minjoo looked absolutely stunning in her ivory Nicole Miller wedding gown and Norman looked sharp and handsome in his custom fitted tuxedo from Combatant Gentlemen and bow tie from Burberry.
Norman was gifted the cuff links from MJ's dad, who received them at his wedding as a gift from his father-in-law.
Norman designed and made leather boutineers for himself and all of his groomsman, and presented the guests and wedding vendors with beautifully custom made luggage tags as a sweet thank you for being for part of their special day.
Congratulations Minjoo and Norman! You treated us all as your family from the beginning to the end and your wedding felt like being home!!!
We wish you long life of happiness and love!!! Until next time......
