If ever there were the perfect locale for wedding festivities, I'm pretty sure Bali would be it. The dreamy McDreamerson landscapes alone are enough to make a girl hop a plane to paradise. Add to that the gorgeous, and I mean GORGEOUS, photography from Marcus Bell of Studio Impressions Photography and all of the modern tropical details and we have the end-all-be-all of destination weddings on our hands. See more of this idyllic day in the gallery.
From the Bride...
We wanted to have a special intimate celebration on the beach. The lawn at Alila offered a spectacular setting for the ceremony and really dramatic views of the sunset that were just what Marcus and his entourage of equipment-bearers needed to unleash the potential of all the fancy gadgetry they had in their possession. We asked our guests to wear white to emphasize the light and breezy feeling on the beach. Instead of rows of chairs, we used comfy couches and ottomans for the guests to lounge on during the ceremony and the cocktail hour.
