S&M: Buddhist Wedding Ceremony in Bali
After spending hours, days, weeks planning your perfect wedding, the day is finally here. Your dream of the perfect dress, perfect bouquet, and the perfect man standing at the end of the aisle. To laugh, to cry, and to love with until the end of time. As for Melia and Suwandi, their dream of having a Buddhist wedding ceremony in Bali has become a reality.
“He’s a great and understanding guy, probably the best blessing in my life. I wouldn’t exchange him for anything,” Melia describes her husband to be.
Melia walked down the aisle, strewn with fresh frangipanis and was accompanied by two flower girls dressed in traditional Balinese gowns. Melia herself was wearing a dress by Indonesian designer Lily Sasongko, adorned with intricate lace designs and fitted perfectly to her body. Suwandi was wearing a handsome dark blue tuxedo with a boutonniere made of roses. He stood at the end of the aisle, in front of the offering table, waiting for his bride. Their Buddhist wedding ceremony in Bali attended by their family and close friends was a very emotional one, but in the end, it was an amazing day for the two lovebirds.
“I could cry happy tears right now” Suwandi remembers when he saw Melia walk towards him down the aisle.
Their reception at the Glass House was decorated with stunning lights overhanging with greenery, gorgeous white roses, and lisianthus. Melia wanted the decoration to be simple and elegant but still with the Glass House’s botanical theme. The centerpieces on the dining tables were the final touch to the overall theme of the wedding. Family and friends feasted through the evening accompanied by laughter and good food.
