Like many single women of a certain age, Maria felt a growing pressure to wed. So she took matrimony to the next level. She became Maria the Korean Bride, a woman to get married in all fifty states. She took this challenge to explore the institution of marriage and how marriage is seen in other cultures. She quickly learned to coordinate on the go weddings, with volunteer participants who are actual reverends, photographers, and bachelors across the country. Her 50th wedding in Times Square, NYC concluded her nine year journey. Her unique experience will make you both laugh and cry as she travels the country exploring the institution of marriage. Will she ever find true love?
