Dreamy Bali Destination Wedding at Alila Villas Uluwatu

April 25, 2017 | gabby

This breathtaking destination wedding brings Bali’s signature dreamy vibes to the next level! Kee eun and Min’s wedding began with their waterfront ceremony in Alila Villas Uluwatu‘s gorgeous open-air space 100 meters above the Indian Ocean. With the help of Cosa Design & Decor, the couple decorated their amazing reception space with their favorite natural greenery, pink protea florals, and of course, tropical Bali details. We are so in love with how diktat photography captured Kee eun and Min’s intimate day, including their totally surreal portraits over an infinity pool!

The Wedding:

Alila Villas Uluwatu, Bali, Indonesia

I know it was my big day but my guests were the most important part of my wedding planning. None of us are from Bali and since everyone is flying in from South Korea and NYC for us, I wanted everyone to feel comfortable during their stays. It was a bit of a struggle at first to set a date for everyone to use their vacation time. Also I arranged all of their stays and transportation to make sure they were well taken care of because I knew that if it wasn’t for them, my wedding would not feel complete. I was just really happy that they all came to celebrate a perfect wedding day for me.

I’m not a big fan of pink but somehow when I was pulling swipes on Pinterest for my wedding, I loved how pink/ green looked together. I just loved how pink king protea looked and also for some reason I picked the blush Monique dress. So I guess it was just meant to be my color!

The most memorable part of the day was when I was walking down the aisle and seeing everyone who made it to Bali just for us! I felt extra special and grateful for all who flew out to celebrate.

Processional: The Piano Guys – A Thousand Years (Piano/Cello Cover)
Recessional: The Verve – Bittersweet Symphony (Instrumental Version)

First thing I did when I started wedding planning was email Diktat Photography. I saw their photos and fell in love. I wanted to make sure Kadek can shoot my wedding. On the day of my wedding, Kadek and his team was really sweet. He made sure I was comfortable and helped us to get the best image possible. If I had to pick a favorite photo, I really liked the one where Min and I were walking around the infinity pool and Min was holding my bouquet.

Our advice: Make sure you have a notebook or a binder that contains every information about the wedding. I made a folder with all my vendors and my paper works. It was especially helpful for me because I didn’t hire a wedding planner and I had to keep in charge of contacting and keeping track of everyone. Also, in general, I think it’s great to have something to go back and look through to make sure everything is working out the way you want to for your big day!
