Sim & Leslie get married in the picturesque Bali, by Laura Grier
From the Photographer
Sim and Leslie's Bali wedding was SO amazing and SO overwhelming that trying to sum it up in a blog has actually given me anxiety. I mean, where does one begin?
Villa Sarna is SO amazing. Their home is situated on the most breathtaking view of cascading rice patties outside of Ubud, the artist capital of Bali. There are nine little villas on the property going up the hillside and most of the house is indoor/outdoor. My dream dwelling!
The Mehendi ceremony they had at Villa Sarna I personally think was the most fun night of all! Everyone (besides Leslie sitting for 8 hours getting her henna done:( ) raged, sang with the Indonesian Band, danced, jumped in the pool with all their clothes on, got massages. It was a stunning night and I wore traditional Indian outfits while working and although Mrs. Sarna worked our asses off, we were able to enjoy EVERYTHING, including all of the massages:)
Just Leslie’s insane wardrobe changes are worth the look, but here is a preview of just how vibrant and stunning their Bali adventure was. After having 2 weddings and traveling for 2 months, its no wonder that Leslie and Sim are having wedding withdrawals. And Mr. and Mrs. Sarna, I am DEFINITELY taking you up on your offer to come back and stay at your home.
By far this was THE most elaborate wedding I have EVER shot, and I have shot a lot of weddings. Leslie and Sim, thanks for giving me such an amazing opportunity to join your lives and to share and capture your most precious family memories!! I love you guys and I am sure I will be spending a lot more time with you and seeing you at many more weddings in the future!
