An Enchanting Phuket Destination Wedding
KEN TAN PHOTOGRAPHY
If Juestina & Chuck’s wedding doesn’t have you dreaming of a destination wedding, I don’t know what will. It combines everything we love about a traditional wedding: timelessly elegant fashion, a romantic reception, and the couple surrounded by loved ones; with the benefits of being somewhere breathtakingly beautiful! So sit back and enjoy every sun-soaked and joy-filled image….
The lovely Juestina shared a few words about their day and why they chose to go destination…. “We wanted an intimate wedding with our closest friends and family. It also gave us a chance to spend quality time with people who are most important to us. Phuket is such a beautiful destination and we really enjoyed visiting in the past and wanted to share it with our guests!
With sweeping ocean views as their stunning backdrop, Wedding Boutique Phuket created a unique design tailored toward our vision. We all were inspired by nature and elegance of the place, especially by the big Banyan Tree on the ceremony terrace at Pullman Arcadia Resort. So, Ilaire created the “Branches of Love” inspiration theme with touches of earthy cream and pearl grey to match natural greenery and wood textures.”
“I fell in love with my bouquet at first sight. It was simple but unique; a mix of lush eucalyptus leaves with fresh garden roses and wild green berries.”
“Two trees decorated with fresh white orchids were one of the focal points of our ceremony – simple and elegant. Wedding Boutique also incorporated several handcrafted designs such as Calligraphy stationery to create a cohesive natural feel. However, the unique touch was given by the few modern objects and the copper details included into the classy design.”
The ceremony was followed by a reception in the Vero Restaurant of the resort. A sweetheart table, just for the couple, was the visual centerpiece of the room and featured an abundance of lavish, greeneries & all-white blooms. Chandelier floral installations and hundreds of candles added to the elegant and romance of the room.
“Our favors were small jars of organic honey from Thailand, we heard from Ilaire it’s a very popular gift and those were so cute with our personalized label and mini dipper! We also wanted to have modern geometric tiles from Lovely Fest Goods as name cards on plates, which was another nice gift for every guest.”
Pearls of wedding wisdom from the bride….
“Do not stress about the little things! Things will go wrong and not everything will be perfect. What matters most is the love you are sharing with your husband/wife.”
Tell us a little bit about your photographer….
“Oh, we have been so lucky! Wedding Boutique Phuket selected Chang, a talented Thai photographer which is one of their best partners and he came out with an amazing work! On top of that another great destination wedding photographer, Ken Tan from Canada, was on tour in Phuket for our wedding and he decided to cooperate with Ilaire for our Day. See the pictures and judge for yourself!”
Such an elegant affair! Wasn’t their ceremony with the ocean backdrop just heavenly?? Huge congratulations to the happy couple Juestina & Chuck, and a big thankyou to them as well as their wonderful photographer Ken Tan for capturing it all so perfectly and allowing me to share it with you here.
