Grace Park & Robert Butler

ARE GETTING MARRIED!

Our Story

We met at Church over food. The rest is history.

Rob and Grace met at a MyChurch Connect group when they were volunteering to meet and have dinner with refugees.

One day, Grace offered half of a Black Forest cake she had made at her school baking class.  

Rob asked her if she wanted to go to the Comiccon on
May 15, 2016. So they went to the Comiccon and then they headed to China Town for Dimsum.

Two years down the road… these two best friends are getting married.

로버트와 저는 캐나다로 피난 온 사람들과 저녁을 같이 먹고 사회적응을 도와주는 교회 모임에서 만났어요. 어느 날 학교에서 만든 케이크를 나눠 먹어야겠다고 생각이 들어 연락을 했고, 로버트는 같이 Comiccon(코믹콘)에 같이 가겠냐고 물어봤죠. 2016년 5월 15일, 저와 로버트는 첫 데이트로 코믹콘에 놀러갔고 차이나타운에 가서 딤섬을 먹었답니다. 

2년 후.. 결혼식을 올리게 되었네요!

Robert Butler

Robert Butler

I was born in the rice patties of Cambodia rescued by my parents Don and Roslyn Butler.  Yup, they are awesome.

Fast forward a few years, to when I had just about given up thinking I would never find a woman that was 100% in on a relationship when one of my Groomsmen Derek Moore gave me his “Opportunity Costs Speech”.  So I decided to pull a 180 and that’s when I met this beautiful Korean Girl full of love with a huge heart and 100% in!

We met at a Church over a meal with the refugees, she offered me a cake – the rest is history.

I was born in Seoul, South Korea, and grew up in Ottawa, Canada.

I fell in love with Rob because he has the biggest and warmest heart for people. 
I love his firm values on family, friendship and trust.

He always makes me smile and laugh. 

 

한국에서 태어나서 오타와, 캐나다에서 자랐어요.

로버트의 유머감각과 타인을 이해하고 포용하는
마음씨에 반해버렸답니다.

제가 항상 즐겁고 행복하기만을 바라는
착한 사람이랍니다.
