East Meets West

“From the moment I met my husband, I knew he was my soulmate,” says Seiko. Dan tried to play it cool when giving her his number, but wasted no time in actually taking Seiko out. Before they knew it, they were in love.

On a particularly cold Valentine’s Day trip to Boston, the pair braved a blizzard to see the Boston Symphony Orchestra. Dan, who had planned to propose on the beautiful steps in the entry way, decided to wait until they returned to their hotel. The room was filled with roses, and Dan proposed to Seiko knowing he, too, had found his soulmate.

Dan and Seiko really enjoyed their wedding planning process, and Dan took the lead on securing vendors and making the day absolutely perfect for his bride-to-be. Dan explains, “It was about finding the right people who could do what my wife wanted and stay within our budget.” Family and friends also helped with crafting the perfect floral arrangements and preparing for all the traditional elements of the wedding.

In addition to a modern western ceremony, the couple also did a traditional Korean ­ceremony. It “was really amazing, and made me feel like part of his family,” remembers Seiko. The beautiful setting at Wandering Tree Estate made the whole day feel magical. “I got to have my wedding in the most perfect place.”

“It was a really great day for us,” says Dan. “I could not ask for more from my friends and family who stepped up to make it an amazing day. Also, having the most beautiful and loving wife just makes everything perfect.”
