Trip to Korea (Part 1)

November 17th, 2017

When Youngsong Martin of Wildflower Linen called Niki about the opportunity to do a wedding in Korea, she did not hesitate. This trip was shortly after she had returned from Dubai from her speaking engagement.


They reached Korea on Sunday morning and were met with the hotel driver.


Paradise City, the resort where our couple had chosen to get married is only a few minutes drive from the airport and is a beautiful property. Just opened in April 2017, this luxurious resort is a mix of imagination and reality. The decor is modern accented by 'art-tainment" - a blend of art and entertainment. This place is a perfect getaway - home to seven restaurants, a bowling alley, health & wellness center, high tech casino, and more.




The suite was spacious and done up beautifully. It was just about 6 am when we arrived at the hotel. After a quick shower, we ordered breakfast.

We decided to go down and familiarize ourselves with all the spaces before our first meeting at 11 am. Our much deliberation we decided to hold the couple’s cocktail hour and reception in the ore function space out side the main ballroom. With its 30 ft high ceilings and dramatic chandeliers it was a perfect space. There was also a discussion about the after party taking place in the stunning night club at the Resort.






It was a packed day with back to back meetings with everyone from the hotel that was going to be a part of this wedding as well as few outside vendors.

We were then treated to a most fabulous sushi lunch at Raku located at the Resort with the executive chef and sous chef preparing the most decadent nine course meal.




Our bride was able to join us by now also which made the lunch more special. The meal was followed by a few more meetings with the chef and banquet team where the bride went through her favorite dishes she had tried earlier.

Dinner was hosted by the owner/chairwoman of the Resort, a very elegant lady who is deeply involved in every aspect of the resort. This special dinner was in the private dining room of the Chinese restaurant Imperial Treasure which is decorated with a statement Bacarat chandelier and done in tones of red.

The magnificent dinner lasted for a couple of hours with stimulating conversation, decadent food and amazing company. We came up to our suite at 10 pm and crashed knowing that the next day was going to be very full. We also had to check out to go to Seoul to visit the church where the ceremony was going to take place and meet some more vendors.

Stay tuned for the post on Seoul!
