Christopher and Christine, known as Chris and Chrissy to their friends, tied the knot in such a modern and intimate way that inspired us greatly. It all started with an acquaintance that escalated into a relationship with a steady commitment. Chris's very private proposal to Chrissy turned out to be a wonderful prelude to the lovely and truly personal wedding celebration they had in Bali.
Wanting to create a unique experience for their guests, the couple chose a venue in which no couple had ever held a wedding before. "Most of our guests have been to Bali a few times, so we wanted this trip to be a different experience," explained the bride. The Sharma Springs villa was the perfect choice. It was a six-level, four-bedroom home overlooking the Ayung river valley, built almost entirely out of black and white bamboo. As soon as they saw it, Chrissy knew that they wouldn't want to have their wedding anywhere else. It also happened to support their "jungle escape" theme very well, to say the least.
A wedding that speaks about the personality of the couple will always be a memorable one. Chris and Chrissy had started their own home ware label called SUKU Home and, as it was their lovechild, they wanted their wedding to be a SUKU experience or as Chrissy said, "… marrying the traditions and modern aesthetics. SUKU is all about bringing ethereal traditions into modern households. The Sharma Springs is exactly that. Even though the whole place is built out of bamboo, its design and aesthetics are very modern."
A series of unexpected events happened leading up to the wedding, such as finding out that the venue could only fit 80 people out of the invited 120, or how all flights to and from Bali had to be cancelled due to volcanic ash on the very weekend the wedding was held. Despite all that, the newlyweds said that the whole wedding was still a wonderful experience, made even more memorable thanks to those very events. "The day was super chill and fun, there was lots of dancing, laughing, and singing!" said the happy bride. Looking at the pictures, surely you would agree wholeheartedly.
