From The Bride…When we got first got engaged, we knew that we wanted to be surrounded by our closest friends and family on the day of our wedding. After careful deliberation, a destination wedding seemed to best fit that bill. When we asked around, everyone said, “Pick somewhere fun!” As native Californians, we both have a deep love for the ocean. Getting married in Bali gave us the chance to start off our marriage with beautiful cliff top views of the ocean surrounded by our amazing families and friends.

We are blessed to have friends and family who share our love of travel; our friends traveled from Boston, New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Australia, and Taiwan to share the day with us. We wanted to everyone to feel like they were on a family vacation, so we started the events with a beachside welcome dinner the night before the wedding and hosted a BBQ pool party the day after.

We wanted our guests to feel like they were celebrating in an intimate backyard party and Villa Bayuh Sabbha turned out to be the perfect venue. The decor and outdoor living spaces of the 5-room estate felt homey and uniquely Balinese. The gorgeous grassy cliff overlooking the ocean gave us the perfect only-in-our-dreams location to hold the ceremony.

Even though the international travel made it a bit tricky to add personal touches to the wedding, we managed to bring two suitcases of DIY items, including all the wedding signage and framed family photos. Instead of a formal sit-down dinner, we wanted to pay homage to our Taiwanese roots and had live-cooking stations (one of which featured a full suckling pig!) reminiscent of Asian night markets. I have a personal love of cronuts, so instead of a traditional tiered wedding cake, the guests noshed on cronuts and gelato.

With everything lit in fairy lights and golden votives, the night simply glowed. We had our first dance lit by sparklers held by our guests encircling the dance floor. The love surrounding us was truly tangible and we will never forget that amazing day.

From The Bride…Toby and I met at work and as soon as we figured out that we had so much in common, we started dating. We bought a house over a year ago in Los Angeles and then Toby proposed on my 33rd birthday, november 2nd, 2012. We chose to get married in Bali because it was a childhood dream of mine, my mom being from Indonesia, I have come to bali several times and always knew it would be the place where i would start a beautiful marriage. Since Toby was from UK, this seemed reasonable as his family and friends would have had to fly out no matter where we chose. In 2012 we attended Sean and Simone Hancock’s wedding in France (vimeo.com/44029426), and that is where we had the pleasure of meeting Deneemotion. We fell in love with the video they produced and asked them to be a big part of our wedding. They have captured the most beautiful day in Toby and my life and we can now relive the magical day.

Colorful Indonesia Wedding

The more I plan my own wedding, the more a destination fete sounds like pure bliss. In all honestly, one destination I’d never considered was Indonesia, maybe because it’s quite a trek for this New England gal. But after seeing this colorful island wedding from 39 East and The Wedding Stylist? I’m convinced that packing up and heading half way around the world, is sooo worth it. See the whole thing right here!

From The Wedding StylistVanessa and James held their wedding at Nikoi Island, Indonesia for an intimate 40 guests. They wanted something fun, relaxing and by the seaside. As they were based in London, this doubled up as a mini vacation for their family and friends.

The wedding ceremony was held in the late afternoon and the area was decorated with colorful ribbons, paper lanterns and garlands. The theme was whimsical and the guests had mini rattan fans, handmade flags embossed with fun quips and bags of airplane-shaped confetti which were cut out from old maps to represent their destination wedding.

After the ceremony, guests were ushered to the pool side which overlooked the sea (amazing view!) where they enjoyed a variety of drinks including 2 signature drinks, Groom’s choice and Bride’s choice. Escorts cards were placed inside small bottles to make it look like a message in the bottle and each table had a specific seashell picture as its “table number”.

The reception was decorated with lanterns hanging from the ceiling, ribbons were used as runners and the flowers were bright, happy colors to bring out the whimsical feel. This wedding was not only colorful but very vibrant and fun! Place cards were inserted into wine corks and a green orchid was placed beside it. Kilner jars were also used at the reception to hold the table center pieces as part of the deco and also as a play on the groom’s last name.

After dinner, the couple did their first dance by the beach and straight after, a showcase of fireworks poured into the sky to start the after party!
