From the beginning, the bride Bianca had a clear idea of what she wants. A traditional style welcome dinner and an organic white wedding for the wedding day.

Welcome dinner
To create a totally different ambiance to the classic white wedding, we designed the welcome dinner to be bold and beautiful with color such as red, purple and lavender as inspired by the tenun ikat (traditional fabric) which we hung on the bamboo structure. The color of the flowers and the cushions were within these shades and created a very beautiful tone for the event. Since Bianca is a foodie, I decided to combine flowers with various tropical fruit to decorate the table on top of a green table runner made from woven banana leaves. To be truthful to the traditional culture, we used "kendi", a traditional vase made from clay as vases for the flower arrangement. Some of the tables were low so people could experience sitting in the rattan carpet to eat, just like traditional villagers do. Cluster of bamboo lampshades in various sizes were hung to create extra drama overhead.

Wedding Day
Both Bianca and Kevin loves the nature and Kevin propose when they were having a walk in a botanica garden. Hence, we wanted the white wedding that Bianca dreamy of to have that organic, part of nature feeling with greeneries decorating the tent as if they gree there. We also added preserves butterflies on some of the flower arrangement. Bianca has a frenchie dog (soba) that she loves very much, and would love her to come to the wedding. So a statute of her dear frenchie dog was decorated with flower wreath and the writing "soba wishes she were here" near the registration table. An even smaller statute of soba were put as part of the decoration table which was so cute it became quite a hit with many guests taking picture of it and gushing about it. The final touch we added was the ikat pattern that Bianca loves. If for the welcome dinner the ikat pattern was in bold color decorating the bamboo structure, this time the bridesmaids wore various modern pattern of ikat in the shades of grey. It feels really special to incorporate your culture into your wedding.
