Yovin and Lisa pulled off a rustic-nuanced wedding just as endearing as their pre-wedding photoshoot. They wanted it to be intimate from the start, having chosen a villa that feels private and inviting not more than 140 closest people. "I found Khayangan Estate back in 2013, when I joined my sister's venue scouting in Bali. I fell in love with the venue, especially its Javanese influence, private villas and impeccable ocean view. So when Yovin and I were set to have an intimate wedding in Bali, I dragged him here first and luckily he loves this place as well!" Lisa recalled.
After a serene first-look moment and bridal party photo session, a sacred Buddhist ceremony in the garden followed. The bride, in an off-shoulder wedding dress by Bramanta Wijaya, and the groom, walked into the ceremony to Banda Neira's "Sampai Jadi Debu", a song special to the couple. The wedding also did not lose a sight of marigold, the bride's favorite color and hue. "I was happy, excited, and nervous, all feelings were mixed up, but in a good way. Knowing you've made a decision to spend your whole life with one person for the rest of your life," Lisa said.
The reception was no less charming. The bride now clad in a Biyan wedding dress, everyone gathered in a rustic-looking garden specially prepared for the alfresco affair. As the night arrives, the reception area was illuminated by beautiful garden lights, enhancing the beautiful decoration. Another thing that stood out the most was how the couple chose specific songs to highlight their wedding. Aside from the ceremony entrance song, the reception entrance was serenaded by How Long Will I Love You, their favorite movie soundtrack. "My girlfriends sang Teman Bahagia for Yovin and me as a surprise. It made me feel so loved. Also that some of my friends were willing to fly to Bali to attend our wedding makes me feel so happy," Lisa shared.
Before closing the interview, Lisa shared her advices for wedding planning in the middle of work, "It can be very frustrating especially when we have hectic daily schedules. Our weekends were mostly packed with meetings with vendors but we enjoyed the moment. But it's a once-in-a-lifetime moment so just enjoy the process."
