When Song Joong Ki kissed the bride at his wedding yesterday, I bet it was one of the happiest moments of his life. On Tuesday, Oct. 31, the Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Kyo couple’s wedding took place at Yeongbin Hall in Shilla hotel. It was a star-studded wedding with many of the couple’s guests being celebrities. The bride shined brightest wearing a pearl-colored Christian Dior and an elbow-length veil. Scroll down for what happened at the wedding from start to finish!
Song Song couple invited around 250 guests for their private wedding, but their fans and reporters also showed up. Hankook Ilbo says there were even drones floating at the venue to report on the wedding.
A lot of celebrities got out of their vehicle and walked to the venue like they do at red carpet ceremonies.
In addition to Choi Ji Woo, Park Bo Gum, and Yoo Ah pictured above, Lee Jung Jae, So Ji Sub, Kim Hee Sun, Park Bo Young, Kim Jong Kook, Yoo Jae Suk, screenwriter No Hee Kyung, and more attended.
There was no press conference like we’ve seen for Jeon Ji Hyun or Hwang Jung Eum’s weddings.
At The Wedding
Yeongbin Hall is a beautiful outdoor venue and one of the most luxe options available for outdoor weddings in Korea. Song Song couple’s wedding took place in the yard and the reception in the traditional Korean hanok-style buildings. Let’s check out the couple walking down the aisle:
The couple’s friends Lee Kwang Soo and Yoo Ah In read congratulatory letters. Lee made the audience laugh when he said, “I’m so happy for the friend I love. But to be honest I’m so jealous!”
The bride’s longtime friend and musical actor Ok Joo Hyun sang “A Whole New World”, a song the couple had chosen in advance, according to Chosun Ilbo. Hearing the song at the wedding, the couple teared up. Song Joong Ki also cried while taking the marriage vow and Song Hye Kyo upon seeing her mother come forward.
Also in the wedding, the two looked at each other and promised, “We met when we shined the brightest. We’ll remain each other’s true love even if we lose everything,” Hankook Ilbo reported.
After the ceremony, Song Hye Kyo’s painter friend received the bridal bouquet.
Reception and After-party
At the reception, Park Bo Gum accompanied Park Hyung Sik and Ok Joo Hyun on a piano.
At the after-party, the closer friends and families of the couple caught up and danced! Watch the couple greet and dance with the guests:
Reports say the honeymoon will happen soon, but the date or location is unknown. After the wedding, the couple most likely retreated to their first house in Itaewon. It’s a mansion Song Joong Ki purchased back in January and remodeled.
Lastly, check out the black-and-white pre-wedding photos the couple’s agencies shared. The couple shot this in San Francisco, according to Yonhap News.
