Jessica and Alessandro have known each other since elementary school. They used to date for a brief moment during high school, but went their separate ways after graduating. Years passed, the two finally meet again in Jakarta and decided to continue their relationship, as grown-ups this time. 14 years of waiting. "They are very much in love, I can see it in their eyes and acts," said photographer Jessica Valerian of Valerian Photo.
The couple's wedding was held in Alila Villas Uluwatu in Bali. For such a special occasion, the bride slipped on an A-line wedding dress with an embroidered top. Its tulle skirt really enhanced the dreaminess of the dress while the slit kept it looking sexy. In her hands was a rustic-looking bouquet dominated by white calla lilies, which provided a beautiful finish to her bridal ensemble.
After saying their 'I do's, the couple did a short photo session on the grounds of Alila Villas Uluwatu, while the reception area was prepped for their arrival. Flower runners, candles and pampas grass can be seen adorning the linen-clothed tables, evoking a romantic yet rustic ambience. On top of the lovely decoration, however, what we love most were the heartfelt emotions captured by the photographer's lenses. As Jessica Valerian wanted to focus on capturing candid shots, she witnessed quite a lot of moments intimately shared by the bride and groom. "The connection between the couple is priceless, they were really meant to be together. The night itself was filled with joy, laughter and a whole lot of fun. I had so much fun documenting this wedding," said the photographer.
