Thailand Destination Wedding Part II

Oh, to be a guest at this wedding. To have seat at the oceanfront ceremony, to sip champagne while the Thailand sun sets, and to gasp as you enter the tented reception complete with draped ceilings, crystal chandeliers and greenery vines strung throughout. It’s the kind of wedding that could only be the handiwork of absurdly talented vendors like Joy ProctorLuxury Events Phuket and Bows + Arrows, and thanks to Ryan Ray and Lovell Productions we get to live vicariously through their images and film. Start with the bridal session, wedding part one + two, and then soak up the full gallery for every last moment.

From Joy ProctorMaking their way to the reception, guests were greeted by an oversized wooden board holding the seating assignments, and baskets of flip flops and pashminas. Guests entered the tent, taking their seats at weathered wood chairs. The U shaped tent has a fully draped ceiling, with soft chiffon panels tied off with greenery on every pole.

Crystal chandeliers hung above with greenery vines strung throughout. Menus made of cotton paper with gold foil sat tucked inside napkins, with guests names tied to sprigs of greenery. Etched bottle openers with the couples monogram sat at each place setting inside stamped muslin bags. Lush, organic green and white flowers sat between mercury glass and metallic candle holders, creating an intimate and romantic environment.

Verna and Tino did their first dance of the dance floor with sat in the middle of the U, outside the tent. After dinner, guests watched as a beautiful show of fireworks went off overhead.

Take my advice and clear the rest of your afternoon schedule. Because when Ryan Ray sends us a wedding, it’s a hold-the-phones and stop-all-else sort of situation. His images speak straight our wedding-loving souls and when a vendor team like Luxury Events PhuketBows + Arrows and Joy Proctor are involved? It’s a recipe for perfection. If you have yet to see the bridal session start here, followed by a viewing of Lovell Productions amazing film below, and sit tight for part two coming up next.

From Joy ProctorIt was an absolute pleasure to help Verna & Tino design their wedding. Verna had a clean vision of what she wanted for the wedding; organic yet elegant, romantic and intimate. We began designing shortly after the invitations had been printed which left a lot of room to create something magical. After a few phone calls, I created an inspiration board and design proposal detailing all my ideas for layout, welcome gifts, flowers, stationary, ceremony, tables and all those special little touches.

We set up a walk through in Thailand to meet and view the beautiful property and confirm all our plans a month prior to the wedding. Verna and I walked through the entire event, planning special design details for each event, and thinking through all the logistical details to ensure a phenomenal guest experience! Planning for the tropical Thai weather, I suggested an open sided, U shaped tent, so that guests would be covered in the case of rain while still being able to appreciate the beautiful environment. The phenomenal production team, BIC built the chairs, bars, tables and tent exactly to my specifications. The result was an exquisite, intimate weekend.

Guests arrived at the Koh Samui airport greeted by a wooden sign with organic greenery swag, cold towels, and welcome bags containing a local sim card, water and a snack. Upon arrival an Samujana, guests met their Villa manager, who offered them an in house menu, as well as gave them the opportunity to sign up for a variety of classes throughout the weekend, including yoga, cooking and muay thai.

The day of the wedding guests were greeted with cold towels and a welcome beverage on the ocean front lawn. As the ceremony began, the bridal party entered down a pathway lit by more than 300 candles. Guests stood as the bride made her way down the aisle, lined with a lush pathway of growing flowers. The bride and groom exchanged vows between organic floral arrangements. After the ceremony champagne, signature drinks and appetizers were passed to guests as they mingled on lounge furniture as the sun set.

From Joy ProctorA week before their wedding, Verna and Tino flew into Koh Samui to relax before their guests arrived. Each of the 30 Villas they rented for their guests had an in-house chef and offered a variety of classes including yoga and cooking. To soak in the experience themselves, Verna and Tino spent the week by their private pool enjoying the stunning views. As was only fitting for the venue, Verna opted to do a beautiful poolside photo session, surrounded by 360-degree ocean views. Her classic look channeled old Hollywood, with beautiful pin curls and red lips paired with a gorgeous black romper and Valentino heels. After changing into a black scalloped one-piece swimsuit, she jumped into the pool to watch the sunset.
