The love union of interracial couple Dara Petrov from Russia and Jeon Seung Min from South Korea was captured by the talented crew from Seal on Heart Photography at the historical Deoksugung Palace in Seoul. The Honour and Blessings Events crew revealed that they wanted to create something that shows it is possible to bring seemingly contrasting elements together in harmony. They chose the historical palace settled amongst the modern high-rise buildings to create a delicate and graceful balance. "In autumn, the air is crisp and cold, but is often broken by the warm and inviting light that the sunshine radiates throughout. Playing with the textures and light, we were able to create a shoot that is full of warm tones yet brings a cool touch," they explained.

The event planner team also arranged everything else in accordance to the theme, from the attire worn by the bride and groom to the bouquet carried by the bride. Jeon Seung Min is seen wearing a darker color with a thicker wool material, which was chosen to anchor the light and airy fabric of the wedding dress. Dara wore a classic white off-shoulder wedding dress and her hair was styled in a messy braided bun. She wore natural and glowing makeup, and the whole simplicity of her look brought out the bouquet. Dusty pink and purple pastels with a touch of dark tones were used in the bouquet to complement the bold colors that are often seen in the changing leaves.

The team also prepared love letters as an additional property for the couple to use, which made the photos more romantic and has a fairytale story effect. "Following with the textures and differences, we used both vellum and handcrafted paper for the love letters. The smooth and translucent vellum settled against the soft, but textured, handcrafted paper brings out the distinctive feature of both while maintaining balance with the similar natural tones." They even had the letters written in both Korean and English to symbolize their love and differences in cultures.
