If there is one thing I’ve learned while working at SMP, it’s that crazy gorgeous weddings happen in Bali. I’m talking weddings held on breathtaking cliff sides with brides and grooms who really, really know how to throw a party. And this beautiful day captured by Sherise Fleming? All of the above with an extra side of pretty. See it all in the full gallery.
From Sherise Fleming Photographer… Anna and Aaron’s wedding in Bali was truly something special. By having a destination wedding they were able to celebrate and holiday with their friends and family while enjoying all that Bali had to offer. They described their wedding theme as Modern Vintage with some Balinese aspects.
The couple were married at the Royal Pita Maha, a one of a kind resort located in the spiritually charged village of Ubud, Bali. Guests were treated to amazing views, fantastic weather and great company. The location was chosen after Anna and Aaron had visited Bali during their engagement period. With the help of their very kind tour guide Mully they searched for something different and beautiful, a place where they could have a holiday with their nearest and dearest and even return to in the future.
Anna and Aaron saw each other before the ceremony so once they were wed they could immediately celebrate with their guests. The groom first saw his bride at the bottom of the resort by the Ayung River. We had decided on this location the day before, as it was truly a wonderful spot that was not only beautiful but intimate and private. The Royal Pita Maha had provide us with some amazing locations for photos. The resort is surrounded by cliffs creating a hidden oasis that boasts beautiful water features, well landscaped gardens and amazing villas.
Their Ceremony took place in a glass chapel that was positioned on the cliff side of the resort. This ensured that all guests had a view of not only the gorgeous couple but the rainforest valley that surrounded them. A cocktail hour followed with signature cocktails and acoustic music played by Anna’s sister and cousin.
Traditional Balinese dancers accompanied by a Balinese band started what would be a very special and unique reception. The couple put on a glorious banquet accompanied by wine from around the world (thanks to their close friend that works in the industry). The night ended as it should with everyone on the dance floor.
