Kevin and I had our wedding in Bali on August 31, 2019 surrounded by our dear family and friends. I loved having it in Bali because we were able to share our love of travel and the beautiful island with everyone over the course of about a week! And I am so excited to share our memories here now.
Kevin and I wanted to make sure our family and friends were enjoyed Bali as much as we did when we visited 2 years prior on our first long trip together. And the wonderful staff at our venue Kamandalu did an amazing job helping everyone (especially me) with all our requests. (Thank you Reha!!) From the car services to the rehearsal dinner to the amazing ambiance at our welcome event, everything was wonderful!
The wedding – #2becomehwan
the wedding prep
My girls are such troopers, starting prep at 8AM – most of us were up by 7AM and we met for breakfast. And I’m not sure what the guys did but I’m pretty sure they were chilling by the pool until around noon. You can read more on wedding details (such as bridesmaid and groomsmen gifts in a post here). Without these group of people in our lives, we wouldn’t be who we are today. So thank you all for standing by us on our special day!
the wedding ceremony
I still remember when I saw the ceremony location for the first time in 2017, my face was literally like 😮 I thought to myself, “this is the most beautiful and perfect venue”. Two years later – a fleeting thought was turned into reality and I still can’t believe it! The dramatic stairs, with the greens in the background, and the platform over the water – it was perfect!
the cocktail hour
The location is too beautiful to waste so once again the amazing staff flipped the ceremony venue quickly! And we were able to enjoy taking photos with our guests and steal some time alone as well.
Now that the vows were over and my nerves were gone, it was time for the party to start! 🤗🎉For all the brides out there, you never really know what to expect about how the decor will all turn out. Even after all the planning and prepping, you just don’t know until you see it. And I was totally blown away that somehow all my pins on Pinterest turned into something beautiful!
I have to say thank you again to all our wonderful vendors who made this weekend one to remember! And to all the future brides, I heard this so many times from other brides. But remember to take it all in and enjoy the moment – because it really does go by so fast. 💖
