Remember Ayla Dimitri and Rama Devara's exceptional Chinoiserie-inspired wedding a few weeks ago? It turns out that the celebration didn't end there! Ayla and Rama wanted to throw another celebration at their favorite travel spot, Labuan Bajo. "We love Labuan Bajo. We've already been there a few times, both by ourselves and together. Every time we come here, we always want to return," confessed Ayla. According to them, Labuan Bajo is a very chill place. They even think it's better than the famous neighboring island, Bali. "Bali is great, but it can get really crowded. Labuan Bajo has a calmer atmosphere, and there's a lot we can do here too," explained Ayla.
She wanted a celebration that isn't just a wedding reception and dinner, but a holiday for all the guests that she invited. "We invited all of our close friends. The total guest didn't even reach 100 because we want to keep it intimate. Every single one of the guests are very busy people, so we wanted to give them a reason to take a break and enjoy Labuan Bajo," she said. Ayla was beyond happy when she found out she could have the celebration at the exquisite Plataran Komodo. This venue had everything that she and Rama wanted for their second wedding celebration.
Indeed, the celebration that the two had in Labuan Bajo was a completely different vibe from the one in Jakarta. For instance, they had two events, which was a welcoming barbecue party and a wedding reception. The welcoming BBQ party was a casual event with no specific rundown, just a dinner where everyone can chat and eat good food. The lovebirds both looked astonishing in white, Ayla wore a beaded white dress with a beige inner from Bridal Workshop, while Rama wore a simple white shirt and pants. The next evening, the two slipped into something even more comfortable for their wedding reception at Plataran Komodo. They went for a boho-syle attire: Ayla was wrapped in a light, flowy dress from Lulu Latfi Labibi, while Rama wore a long kimono as an outer to his very simple white shirt and khaki pants.
The island bride even took time to take photos by the beach during sunset, which complimented her beauty even more. Then, the reception started with the couple walking in together and greeting the guests. They played a few couple games, enjoyed the delicious dinner courtesy of Plataran Komodo, and raised their glasses of champagne to toast for an everlasting life of happiness and love together. The night ended with the newlyweds sharing another slow dance together, basking in that warm and intimate moment overlooking the ocean.
