On the romantic island of Bali, Dorothy and Stanley were wed in a celebration that was truly out of this world! The couple focused on making each detail reflect their unique personalities, including a carpet of pink rose petals down the aisle, the bride’s favorite, plus a cake topper that was a identical replica of the couple’s wedding ensemble complete with a miniature Vera Wang dress and a dashing navy blue suit. Their big day was as enchanting as it was unforgettable!
The Couple: Dorothy and Stanley
The Wedding: Alila Villas Uluwatu, Bali, Indonesia
The Goals: Our most important goal for our wedding was to personalize everything.
The Design: We wanted every detail about the wedding to be about the two of us. For example, our invitation showed a bride and groom together on a tandem bicycle as Stanley loves bicycles and is also a bicycle design engineer. Our RSVP card, the design of which I thought was really clever, also featured a bicycle but with four seats the bride and groom were in the front two seats and in the back there were two empty seats reserved for our invited guests. As for me, I love Westies and sweets, so for our desserts table we had custom made Westie cupcakes and Westie and bicycle shaped cookies. I think the best personalized item at our wedding was our wedding cake topper, which featured a miniature bride in a Vera Wang dress custom made to be exactly as my wedding dress (the details of the dress were amazing!), a groom in a navy blue suit just like Stanley’s, along with a bicycle and a little Westie pup.
The Location: We held the wedding at Alila Villas Uluwatu. We loved the cabana and the view we had during the wedding ceremony. Our reception was held at the same venue next to the Cabana.
The Photography: We were looking for someone who had experience photographing in Bali, and who was very professional and had great artistic talent. Their pictures are so full of emotion and love, but best of all, they allowed us to be ourselves.
