Denise and Patrick had one goal in mind: to give their wedding guests an unforgettable once-in-a-lifetime destination wedding experience. And with that in mind, the pair and their powerhouse vendor team set their sights on thoughtful details that would make their Tirtha Bali micro wedding dream a beautiful reality. A unique cliff-top venue overlooking the Indian Ocean, a minimalist boho-luxe aesthetic, and fashion-forward attire—the couple pulled out all the stops, and they definitely delivered!
The couple exchanged heartfelt vows at the iconic Tirtha Glass Chapel, a true architectural marvel. Feathery pampas lined the aisle while an overhead installation of tassel chandeliers drew the eyes to the breathtaking backdrop of the deep blue sea and the endless sky. After their dreamy “I dos,” they made their way to the Eden Garden of Wonderland Uluwatu, where a stunning outdoor reception awaited them. Mix and match rattan pendant lights hung above an earthy tablescape of florals and candles, raffia chargers, and gold accents.
And it wasn’t just the views and the decor that was absolutely outstanding that day. The groom rocked a stylish burgundy suit while the bride looked like a goddess in her strapless gown with detached statement sleeves and a gold celestial crown. From the arched seating chart and the monogrammed coconuts to the poolside lounge, these are gorgeous details you don’t want to miss.

They Gave Out Thoughtful DIY Welcome Bags
We gave welcome bags with a personalized monogram during the rehearsal dinner. We filled it with goodies like his and her favorite snacks, gold playing cards, 24k gold under-eye patches for after the wedding, and a boho sugar cookie with our initials on it.
How Having An Intimate Wedding Allowed Them To Spend Time With Their Loved Ones
We had a small wedding of 40, and it was the best decision we ever made. We were able to socialize and personalize every element of the wedding. We planned our wedding, ensuring that we got the wedding of our dreams and gave our family and friends an experience of a lifetime. We were able to mention everyone on our guest list during our speeches, which rarely happens at weddings. Our advice for other couples, have a wedding that you will remember–something that reflects both your personalities–and don’t be afraid to have a small wedding. Sometimes people have this misconception that the smaller the wedding, the less fun it’ll be, but it’s not. We’re proud to say we had the best wedding with our favorite people, and down the road, we’ll still remember our wedding night, the conversations we had with everyone on our guest list, the dancing, singing, and after-party swimming.
Including Family Members Who Couldn’t Be In Attendance With Their Gifts To One Another
I gave my husband a box full of tear-jerkers gifts. In it were gold cufflinks with our dogs’ photos engraved on them. There was also a handkerchief with my stepkids’ photo, as they couldn’t come. It came with a note saying, “Daddy, we may not be there today, but we’ll still be there on our special way. Tuck this in your pocket so we’re not apart, and we’ll snuggle up all day next to your heart.” There was also a boutonnière pin with a photo of him and his mom, who passed away. Plus, I added a pair of Tom Ford gold sunglasses and a customized gold Cuban link bracelet with his initials on it. Pat gave me a gold paper clip bracelet and necklace set, which I told him about before that I really wanted but haven’t bought for the longest time.
Their Tirtha Bali Micro Wedding Was Full Of Exciting Entertainment
We had live music, a string quartet at the ceremony, fireworks, fire dancers, and water drums. Everything was an experience that when they thought they’d seen the best, it just got better as the night progressed. We both agreed our most memorable moment was when we played the water drums at our reception. We just enjoyed ourselves with our guests, not caring about getting our suit and dress wet.
