Finally! Proof that we got married! Not that you didn’t think we’re married. Right? Right. I know, I know, we act too happy to be married! Simon must be Martina’s gay roommate, brother, or best friend. Nope. We’re very happily married! Now, we’re not gonna show you all of our wedding pictures…since I’m sure our family and friends wouldn’t appreciate their photos being put up online, so here’s a few of us, along with our wedding story.

Umm…what else should we write in this blog post, really? We pretty much said everything we could say about the wedding. At least, I think we did. If there’s anything we missed, ask us in the comments and we’ll do our best to answer.

Oh! We didn’t give a moral to all of this. Grand moral here: don’t be a bridezilla. Simon here. Martina’s bridesmaids didn’t all dress in the exact same outfits, she told them “blue for the maid of honour (her sister) and chocolate brown for everyone else, pick a dress that looks good on you”. Who cares if everyone’s dresses didn’t match?! They looked rocking in the dresses that they picked out! We had an uneven bridesmaids to groomsmen ratio. Who cares?! We had a friend design our invitations and we printed them at a Kinkos’ Printer in Etobicoke. Who cares?! Martina’s photography teacher from High School took our wedding photos, not a thousand dollar photographer. We feel like the details of a wedding event aren’t as important as just being happy to get married, you know?

We know that people often get caught up in the details of the wedding day party, rather than what the wedding day represents: the beginning of the rest of your lives together. The most important thing about getting married is marrying the right person and communicating for the rest of your lives! A lot of people ask us if we fight, and while we do get into disagreements, we never fight yelling and screaming at each other. Communication and making an effort to understand your partner is the key to a fight free relationship. There is no point of holding things back and then blowing up a month down the line because you didn’t bother telling your partner that something upsets you. But, for example, we’ve learned that both our styles of thinking and expressing our opinions are different. Martina needs to burst out what’s on her mind right away in order to express her thoughts, and after venting out all her ideas she comes to a final conclusion, while Simon tends to think about things quietly for a couple days before he brings something up. Different ways and different times of expressing our opinions, it took a couple years of marriage to understand that about each other, BUT, we now understand that so there is no misunderstanding or fighting when that occurs. Even though we’ve been married for over five years, we feel like we’re still dating. Always giggling and excited to see each other.

If there is any advice we can give people dating or getting married it’s to never take the other person for granted. You aren’t dating or married to an enemy, it should be a person who is always rooting for you. A person who likes you makeup free, overweight, cranky, emotional, or depressed. Remind yourself that you’re always in the wooing time period, so buy them random flowers, make them a mix CD, leave them a sweet note, send them a sappy text message, drop by their work with a surprise snack. We feel like life is really short, and you never know what’s going to happen, so don’t forget how awesome it is to be loved or to love someone else.

Oh: and delicious cupcake towers. Cheaper and much more delicious than wedding cakes. You heard it from us. :D

  1. So one thing I don’t understand about kpop is that it seems like there’s a new hit out every week unlike American music where it seems like we are listening to the same songs for months on end. Can you give some insight on this?

  2. For the next TL;DR, please update us on how studio hunting has been going!

  3. What other wedding that you’ve heard of has an after party with celebs? None. Best wedding ever!!

  4. Do this one! Do this one!

    They did do a short video on bill paying in Korea some time back.

    One thing they really need to have here on the blog posts is the date, so we know how timely they are.

  5. Your wedding, proposal and love stories are worthy to be in a novel! (that’s how awesome they are!! > . <)
    2:48 very ingenious Martina :D

    04:43 your cupcake tower makes me think of a 'Bertie Botts every flavor Beans' tower :)))

    05:20 Omo… that song!! (; _ ;)

    Your wedding picture is lovely!! *___*

  6. OMG i love that song! (“The Luckiest”)

  7. You guys have a very interesting & unique wedding. I think the balloons is a great idea. It looks unique & a little fantasy like (LOL imagine the candles floating in Harry Porter). The poems is just sweet. Love the cupcake tower – everyone should have cakes that they actually want to eat. Such a memorable wedding. Thanks for sharing.

  8. omg you guys, the hotel story was AWESOME!! it must’ve been amazing.

    and fyi, all of us nasties love when you talk about yourselves and not-necessarily-korea-related stuff ;)

  9. Martina and Simon you look like your both royalty :P but Martina your the best with the bunny ears :P

  10. OMG, you’re the WEDDING COUPLE!! —– I seriously laughed so loud at that!! It sounds like you two had a ridiculously awesome wedding day and night!!

  11. I love the idea of someone watching this video, and exclaiming “So YOU”RE the peony thief!”

  12. Having heard your wedding story, and reading this, you two remind me a bit about my parents’ point of view regarding marriage and relationships. My mom and dad celebrated their 35th wedding anniversary earlier this summer, and have never, to my knowledge, had any doubtful occurences around their relationship. Surely enough, life is not filled with roses and pink clouds, and they have been arguing in their lives, but while practically all their friends have at some point gone through dirvorces, they’ve been stuck like glue.

    OK,, maybe not too true, since mom did get mad enough at him to throw a wooden spoon at his direction once (without aiming at him), but well… he did work a bit too much to be with us that year, and she soon got quite fed up with it. But that is, to my knowledge and memories, the worst fight they’ve ever had.

    With this written, I wish the two of you another 30 years (as I believe you said a while ago you celebrated 5 years), like my parents have. Because no matter what people say, some relationships do work until death do you apart. Or at least for more than 35 years.

  13. Wow! So you never had normal lives even before EYK! I don’t think I know of anyone who has lead such a crazy fun life as you have.

  14. I’m totally with you guys as far as wedding cakes go.. most times they are bland white cake. My husband and I chose spice cake with cream cheese frosting for ours.. first cake that didn’t have any leftovers. That totally made me sadface cause I was hoping to eat spice cake slices for the next week ;D

  15. What a memorable wedding story and I think you guys provide good advice on marriage. Your wedding sounds exactly the way I would want mine….not too many frills style with personal touch. I have been to a destination wedding in a castle in Europe…which was very beautiful, but I seriously could not understand how they spent so much money on one day event…totally not my ideal wedding. But as they say, different strokes for different folks. Thanks for sharing Martina and Simon, you both looked beautiful and dashing on your wedding day!

  16. Aww you guys are my role models, good marriage and story~~ When I get married, I want it to be simple~

  17. Are Korean students really conservative? Do they interact a lot with the opposite sex? Where I’m from (Australia), I’m comfortable about making dirty jokes with my friends of the opposite sex. Is that the case in Korea or they tend to not talk about these things?

  18. YAY FINALLY A VIDEO ABOUT YOUR WEDDING AND PIIIIIICCCCCCTTTTTTUUUURRRRRREEEEEEESSSSSSSS~~~~~~~~~~!!!!

  19. Not enough pictures =P

    Just joking =) Thank you for sharing your special day with us; yet another super sweet thing you’ve done for your viewers!

  20. They did a TL;DR on that a few weeks/months ago or so. Check the archives.

  21. They story was so cool! I love the way you two did your wedding was so wonderfully lovely and romantic! Props to the manipulation of the hotel!!!! That is so awesome!!!! I would love to see the guard and that would totally be the same reaction I would have lol!!!!! You two are so amazing and wonderful, you just make my life better.

    P.S. – I totally support the “choose a limited space scenario so your annoying family can’t come” approach, Simon you clever cookie!

  22. D’awwww I have the warm fuzzies in my belly. Lol
    But seriously, you guise are my relationship inspiration. I don’t have the best role models in my life, so it’s nice to see a happy couple who isn’t perfect but try very hard to make each other happy <3
    Also, in my future wedding, I will be stealing that candy idea. It's genius. Plus, everybody in my family has a sweet tooth, so I know it would be a hit :P

  23. you guys always go to the parties with celebrities!! like on Martina’s birthday! Your wedding sounds amazing<3 I'm so having K-pop played at my wedding! and this was hilarious… I wish I was at the hotel..well not with you guys but for the party ^^

  24. so…. you guys are like the cutest couple I have ever seen! I want to have such a loving and simply adorable relationship with my future boyfriend (fat chance of me getting one anytime soon though :/) A lot of couples can learn from you two :3

  25. Stumbling accidentally into music scenes seems to be an ongoing theme for you guys!

  26. awwww you guys are like, the perfect couple ;w; i hope one day i get as lucky as you two did and i find my perfect guy <3 (so far though, no luck :( )

  27. you guys are so cool! I’m happy for you guys and it’s great how you guys appreciate each other so much. Thanks for sharing your wedding story! It was really awesome!! what a crazy story haha

  28. :D you guys are soo cute! other couples that i know out there should take a few pointers from you two ^^ i wanna find my ‘Simon’ someday too hahaha

  29. A nice cozy wedding at a low price AND free swag? Y’all were BALLIN’! xD

    I’ve been in two weddings as a bridesmaid, and both of my friends were far from being Bridezillas and also allowed us to pick our own dresses as long as the color matched. Well, ok, so in order to match colors they had to be dresses from the same company, but that made it even easier, in my opinion. The outfits were pretty much the only things “demanded” of us, and that relieved so much pressure on people. It pays to be friends with those who are so nice and lax because they’re likely to stay the same way when it’s wedding time. :3

  30. Having just celebrated my 19th wedding anniversary, I could not agree more! We can tell that you guys have the right attitude about marriage..

  31. You should do a “Boyfriend (Husband) does my make-up” video :D

  32. Martina, You always have the best hair pieces ^^

  33. Okay, your wedding sounds AWESOME o.O so much more relaxed and actually fun than most weddings! PS I’m a size 6, will be waiting for my techno shoes ;)

  34. i so love your attitude concerning the wedding thing. i mean how can it be the supposed best day in your life when you have almost a mental breakdown while the preparations? (ok i admit mental break down is a bit exagerated)

  35. Thanks guys this was really sweet and interesting, thanks for sharing :)

  36. Simon and Martina are THE most perfect couple I have ever encountered. Plus, love the cupcake tower idea! ^^

  37. This was absolutely beautiful! My bf and I feel exactly the same way about marriage and the whole “getting married thing”. Who knows when exactly we’ll be engaged? Who cares? When it happens it’ll be the biggest hodge-podge mess of a ceremony ever and we’ll have a blast with our friends!
    Thank you so much for sharing this with us, it’s really awesome to see people who are as happily married as you guise.
