Confession time. I’ve been a little bit obsessed with traveling to Bali ever since I saw the movie Eat, Pray, Love. That’s legit, right? It may have been the glamorized soul searching or the fact that Julia Roberts could make anything look amazing, but it’s still the one locale sitting at the top of my must-see list. So, you can only imagine my giddies the very second I stumbled upon these photos from Erika Gerdemark Photography…virtual vacation dream-come-true! Join me as I swoon my Bali-loving heart out right here.
From the Bride…Steve and I both are designers based in Jakarta, Indonesia. We always wanted a laid-back and intimate wedding, where people can sit back, relax and have a great time in the party. So we decided to held our wedding reception in Bali. Being a designer, we are very picky interms of decoration details, dresses, food, and especially photography. I remember the first thing I researched and contact after the proposal was wedding photographer. I was lucky that I found Erika through Twitter. I fell in love with her work the first time I saw her blog. I am thankful to met all the dream vendors that I wanted. Each and everyone in the team was professional and very talented. Janice surprises me with her fabulous works. I had a great time working together with her and Karen. Turns out I have my perfect wedding. Something that I always wanted all this time. A little bit about my wedding dress, I always wanted a simple, elegant and unique dress. I guess I was lucky that Baron from Tenun Baron, which also a dear friend of mine, offers me a one of a kind fabric with his new experimental technique combined with my custom designed patterns. His fine and delicate silk woven fabric always amazed me. I can say that he is one of the best textile maker in Indonesia. Now finding a right designer is a challenge, and I think Auguste is the one after all. He understand that simplicity is everything. I love the dress fitting and it is perfect. My favorite part of the day was finally seeing all friends and family gather together in such a lovely place sharing our love together. The inspiration for the decoration and theme was rustic vineyard with a twist of chic elegant.
