Jonathan and I eloped and were married May 20th, 2010 in Ubud, Bali, Indonesia.
The ceremony was in the garden of the Indus restaurant/hotel in Ubud. We wore traditional Balinese wedding garments. The ceremony was a traditional Hindu Balinese marriage blessing full of flowers, rice, incense and offerings. It was incredibly beautiful.
This illustration gives the Balinese names for all the garments and accessories that made up the wedding outfits. You can’t tell in the picture above, but Jonathan had a sword suck into the back of his garment, just like the guy in illustration.
My headdress took about 90 minutes for the hairdresser to build out of 75+ metal ornaments. It was very heavy and sharp, but totally glam.
A lot of people have asked us about the ceremony. I’ll post more on that soon.
