Maria the Kore­an Bride vis­its Laramie

On Fri­day Sep­tem­ber 10, 2010 Maria Yoon was mar­ried to Matt Mick­el­son, a Laramie native and part-time bar­tender at the Buck­horn Bar. With her mar­riage to Mick­el­son, Yoon will cel­e­brate her 48th mar­riage in 48 dif­fer­ent states. Maria the Kore­an Bride, as she is known to her friends and sup­port­ers is on a mis­sion to raise aware­ness about love and mar­riage and what it means in today’s soci­ety. Maria has been trav­el­ing across the coun­try since 2001 tak­ing her mul­ti-media per­for­mance on the road. Her per­for­mance is an art that she has designed to bring atten­tion to the social pres­sures she endured as a first gen­er­a­tion Kore­an-Amer­i­can unmar­ried woman.
