Wow, Kassy looks gorgeous in her wedding dress! It is really fun to know the wedding in Korean style. It is quite different comparing to the Macau ones. We always do the weddings in the evening and in Chinese banquet style. The most interesting part is the hotel will provide Mahjong service for guess to kill their time before wedding reception.
