know i mean this 100% when i say that youngmi&artie are the sweetest people i’ve ever met. despite having a completely depressing forecast for their wedding day, these two were practically glowing when we got to the ravisloe country club. tony and i came prepared with lots of umbrellas and positive attitudes. if it was going to rain – we were going to make the best of it. and then you know what happened? the skies parted. most of the time i would say that’s just some really good luck. but i like to think that it’s because youngmi&artie truly deserved a perfect wedding. and that’s exactly what they got.

youngmi really took to the diy approach, and with the help of her awesome bridesmaids, created a jaw-dropping affair. from the dresses, to the flowers, to the polaroid guestbook, to the ADORABLE custom cake topper that youngmi made HERSELF. (see how she made it!) every little thing was planned and executed perfectly. and we’re so glad they were able to have their ceremony outside. ravisloe has what is probably the most gorgeous outdoor ceremony location i’ve seen recently. it’s like getting married at a romantic spanish villa… except in illinois.;)oh and did i mention that youngmi looked like a 50′s hollywood starlet? my hat off to marissa & jill from styles down the aisle, because youngmi looked completely radiant the whole day.

to youngmi&artie – holy. cow. i know we said it probably a gazillion times that day, but WOW. we were so honored to be a part of your wedding. you guys are really fabulous.:D

youngmi - i most definitely am a crier… i’m crying right now because i watched the video! i don’t know how we can ever thank you enough… the photos are so amazing. never in my wildest dreams did i ever think they could be this wonderful. you guys are so great!

p.s. why on earth was artie dancing with our marriage certificate?

Grace T. - Youngmi and Artie: Amazing wedding. These pictures truly captured something special and incredibly moving. The tearing up pictures almost get me going too. I’m not a good crier. I only managed to squeeze out a few tears during my sister and father’s speeches.

As for Artie dancing with your marriage certificate, I was sorta wondering the same thing. Best guess: He’s REALLY REALLY happy to be married to you!!!

To your photographers, Gina and Tony: These are two very special people, and I’m glad you were able to capture that with your cameras!!

Youngmi, if you ever need a back up career, you should absolutely start your own wedding planning business. it was an amazing day.

Artie - Thank you so much for these wonderful pictures. You guys captured the happiness we felt all day. As for the dancing certificate photo… We just signed our marriage certificate and the DJ played Teach Me How To Dougie. I had to run to the dance floor with the certificate in hand. So worth it.
