Destination Bali Wedding II

What I love most about this wedding is that I feel like the couple asked themselves and embraced my favorite wedding questions: 1) what elements of traditional weddings from our cultures are meaningful to us? and 2) what would our wedding be like if we had never seen a wedding before? The combination of their answers are truly magical…

From Jonas: “Day Two: Time for the first ceremony. Elora’s dress was made on the day of the wedding from Jasmine flowers. Elora was then sewn into her dress. The ceremony took place IN a river and after that we took portraits in the rice paddy adjacent to where the Hardys live. The reception that night took place under the stars under a large Banyan Tree. Elora was wearing a Jenny Packham dress.”

Unbelievable, right?? I’m trying to imagine how amazing that dress made of jasmine must have smelled… It makes me so happy that they dreamed up a wedding like this and did it! I hope it encourages you to dream outside the box a little more for your wedding day.
