Hello, hello! Last weekend I was in Bali for the wedding of the year! I can’t believe that my good friend, Jeff, married the woman of his dreams – she is pretty awesome!
I flew into Bali last Friday night and checked into my hotel and ordered a quick dinner before I crashed. The next morning, it was a lazy start to the day poolside until it was time to head down to the wedding.
I had never been to the Uluwatu part of Bali and am totally in love with that area. It’s truly a surfer’s paradise as Uluwatu is known to have some of the best surf breaks in the world and what puts Bali on the map for surfers.It was such a fun weekend spent with some awesome friends in a beautiful setting. Unfortunately, I don’t have pictures of the actual wedding ceremony as our phones were confiscated. The rugby was on at that time and I’m sure a lot of the male guests wanted to check the score – Jeff is from New Zealand, and his now wife knows him too well. 😉 Hehe
The ceremony was short and sweet. Actually, they each wrote their own vows and we were left laughing so hard. They truly make a great team and I still can’t get over how damn happy they looked!! <3 There was a cocktail hour after the ceremony with hor d’oeuvres and we watched the sun set in a stunning display.
After we all sat down for a sumptuous feast and laughed even more at the speeches. Cathrin was the Best Woman and she rocked her speech! The Man of Honor also gave a stupid funny speech which he completely winged because he didn’t realize he had to give a speech!The newly married couple had their first dance and then the real partying began! I hadn’t danced in so long, so it was fun to let loose. And I may or may not have ended up in the pool that night in my dress. HeheIt was such an honor to have been able to be there for their special day – it was such a beautiful, love filled day! And well, Bali is always a good idea!
I’ll be hitting the friendly skies again tonight as I head home to surprise my Dad for his 70th birthday! I can’t wait to be back Stateside to see my family and meet my newest nephew!
Have a great weekend everyone!
