VIP Honeymoon Service from JW Marriot

I would recommend getting married at the JW Marriot because the honeymoon package is amazing. After a very stressful day of getting ready for the wedding and missing out on the meal since we were doing the ceremony, it was very nice to be able to go to a quiet room to have snacks and drinks ready for us. There were little snacks like chocolates and fruit. There was also a bottle of wine in our room (which we used to prepare for the big day). After the ceremony was finished we took a nap, then went to our reception parties. Yoonie went to the sauna (which is amazingly luxurious). The honeymoon package includes 200,000 won for room service so we ordered dinner later that night and breakfast in the morning. Oh, it also includes snacks and drinks during happy hour.

We got married!

On February 8th, 2014 I married the love of my life. It has been one of the biggest life decisions I have ever made in my life and I wasn’t too worried about it. The wedding went off without a single problem and I think the ceremony went great. We had a traditional Korean wedding at the JW Marriot in Seoul. Through the help of the concierge, our musicians (Alex Acco (and friend) and the amazing chef, Andreas Kampf (thanks chef), we were able to give our guests an experience to be proud of. More pictures will be coming but this is a teaser since Yoonie is shy and she wants me to share the professional photos.

Bulldogs: British Bangers and Pub

I was recently invited to Bulldogs which is a new British pub that is serving creative bangers and pub fare in Itaewon. This is another restaurant addition to the street across from the Hamilton Hotel. This street is really hopping these days as restauranteurs are trying to get away from the high rents of the Main Street.

Entering the place you are greeted by a giant chrome bulldog in a cage and portraits of famous Britains like the Queen and Sean Connery. The place has a urban, London feel to it and it is well lit and spacious. My friend Jason and I were greeted by the owner, Tom, who said he wanted to bring a bit of London to Seoul.
