This E-Sesh Will Convince You to Runaway to the Rainforest

And just like that I’m off to Bali just so I can recreate this enchanting engagement session. Complete with THREE gowns, a monkey, AND one adorable couple it’s almost too much to bear! But bear it we will, for we’re completely smitten with this gallery from Megan W Photography. From the heartachingly beautiful Flora Botanica Designs bouquet, to the seriously how is this real scenery, it’s all in The Vault!


From Flora Botanica DesignsThe word Bali screams the beautiful sandy beach and the coastal lines, but besides its breathtaking scenery, it’s truly called the Island of God. With hundreds of temples in the Island, the Balinese takes ceremonies and worshipping very seriously and impart this as part of their daily living.

The Balinese have a distinct and inspiring arts and architecture. Their walls and reliefs, along with the deep orange and mix with grey are magnetic. We were so lucky to have this inspirational shoot happened at a neighborhood temple’s yard and along the edge of beautiful rice terraces.

This couple is not a professional model, they are real couple who are truly in love can’t take their eyes off of each other. So everything was real and natural; their smile, the chemistry and even the set where these amazing shots take place was never properly manicured to its perfection. Everything was just the way it is.

Megan of Megan W Photography successfully captured beautiful images of the set, the couple’s chemistry and everything that is here delights the senses. Her supreme accomplishment is having created great photographs that are unforced and casual.

Tania of Flora Botanica Designs help to set the set with some casual affairs of her hand bouquet, large, lush, airy with a tropical look. She chose some subtle colors to highlight the strong features of the environment. We have to let the nature wins!

From The Bride…Anton and I have started dating 9 years ago and when we had a mini getaway to Bali a year ago, he proposed and I said yes!

Just like any other recently engaged girls, our eyes are suddenly fixated on color swatches, pretty flowers, white gowns and two of the most tapped phone apps are Instagram and Pinterest. That began my journey in wedding planning. Anton, my then-fiancè, got the chance once in a while to get periodical updates on what our wedding designs were going to be like. We were not a fan of big, ballroom style wedding so we thought a small and intimate soiree would be ideal.

In my line of works as a graphic designer, I designed and made a layout of wedding albums for a wedding photographers and looking at hundreds of indoor wedding, I wanted to have an open-air party with a panoramic background.

Living and working in Jakarta, we flew to Bali, a place where our family and friends would get the chance to spend the weekend and attending our weddings. Among lots of beautiful resorts and villas in this holiday Island, we fell in love with The Latitude, a private residence with a big infinity pool, drop-dead-gorgeous Indian ocean scenery, plenty of space for our 100 guests and layers of terraces for our Holy Matrimony. Everything about that place drew us in.

To me, choosing colours is not difficult. I am always a fan of white and gold ornaments and I picked that as our theme colour. I picked a design that was aesthetically beautiful but at the same time cost-savvy with matching menus, place cards, and gift tags were printed with the same theme colour. We want our wedding stationery to be timeless, and we thought that gold and white is never outdated.

I felt that everything had to be properly designed and coordinated and also equally important for us to find vendors who are not only experienced but also share the same vision of what we wanted. For sure, we wanted the chandeliers to match the golden ornaments on our wedding stationery. We had lots of candles, flowers on golden stands and flickering tea light candles on the table. My wedding gown was the prettiest creation I have seen. I’m always a fan of lace and pearls, and Soko Wiyanto designed what I really like, a simple mermaid style with an off-shoulder neckline with lots of beads, pearls and french lace.

Among other vendors that worked with us, my friendship with Bernardo from Bernardo Pictura, came as an immediate hiring. I felt that being friends with the photographers ease the wedding day tension and able to bring that natural smile and giggle. His laid back attitude was a potion for our parents and bridesmaids who felt that they may not look perfect on camera, and we love his style of photographs; modern, candid, and beautiful without too much trying.

As our wedding happened to take place during the rainy season, we installed a tent to be on a safe side. Tania from Flora Botanica Designs, hung beautiful draperies and chandeliers. Together with the 20 chandeliers, dining tables which are set up in a row, golden tiffany chairs, and a big wedding cake, at night it felt grand, like a fairytale, just like a typical grand dinner in a palace we see on movies and TVs. I adore a classic white theme wedding, the one that when you look the photos thirty years later, it would still look beautiful and never out-of-fashion, and when she incorporated a little touch of greens in the arrangement, it was a genius idea, truly beyond what I had imagined. It was romantic and breathtaking. Hiring her was the best decision ever.

The best moment during our wedding was our Holy Matrimony. I had been dreaming about this before, walking down the aisle with a perfect weather, sunny but breezy. The temperature was rather uncomfortable days before the wedding. It had been hot with unpredictable showers and I couldn’t imagine standing in the heat. I was lucky! It rained for almost an hour and when it stopped, it was pleasantly cool and breezy. I couldn’t imagine a more perfect weather than that. We walked down the aisle with a small church choir, surrounded by close family and friends and truly it was the moment we had been dreaming about.

Our reception was a blast. Our MC was so entertaining without being too intrusive and we hired a DJ at the end of the night. Well of course, with Jack Daniels, Vodka, and wines from dinner, we had an absolute dance party. It was a night to remember over and over again, and if we have the chance, we’d spend our anniversary with the same people reliving the day.

From Rebecca Hollis PhotographyI was fortunate to get to travel to Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates (a special place to the bride) for a week to photograph Andrea and Tyler’s wedding and the events leading up to it. The wedding party consisted of only immediate family and very close friends. We spent the week leading up to the wedding doing just about everything you can think of to do in the dessert – from camel rides to dune bashing to a saluki and falconry show. The week culminated in the ceremony and quiet candlelit dinner reception on one of the many terraces at Qasr al Sarab.

This couple was the definition of meant for each other. I first got to know them when doing their engagement session in Jackson Hole, Wyoming where the groom is from and it was immediately felt how loved they are by one another and how much they complement one another. They are respectful, warm and very kind. It was truly an honor to spend the week with them and their close friends and family for their wedding.
