Welcome to day four of our Local Wedding Blitz!
We couldn’t decide on just one favorite wedding, so we’re posting a different one every day for a week. Take a look at some of the best and brightest local Cincinnati weddings.
Throughout Min’s and Eric’s courtship, three motifs emerged—peas in a pod, flowers, and LEGOs—and became important to them. When planning their wedding, the couple decided to incorporate all three into the cake, which was a one-of-a-kind masterpiece.

The couple returned to Cincinnati, Eric’s hometown, to celebrate their marriage with their many family members who live in the region. The wedding was held at the same church where Eric’s parents were married nearly 43 years ago.
Min wore a stunning, traditional Korean dress for the reception.
Guests were treated to an impressive one-of-a-kind cake designed inspired by LEGOs and created by Ileana Saldivia of Sugar Realm. They rocked out at the reception to Greg Lee & The Chuck Taylors.
On the morning of the wedding, it began to snow. The couple was concerned that the weather would negatively affect their plans, but the roads stayed clear and the celebration went on without any glitches. In Min’s native Korean tradition, a snowy wedding day is considered to bring many blessings.
