Simmone & Giancarlo's Bali Wedding

This unique and glamorous bride challenges the expectations of a Balinese resort wedding.

Shared glances over hot chocolate following a chance meeting in a chocolate cafe was just the beginning for Simmone and Giancarlo.

"I've always wanted a secluded wedding. That has been my celebrity thought all along. Taking the family on a vacation to Bali, Indonesia was far from tradition. I'm more about unique and random. Experiencing life to the fullest with memories created out of the ordinary to last a lifetime.

I always knew who I wanted to make my dress. Leah Da Gloria is one of a kind. Her skill and passion speaks a whole new language. As I wanted something non traditional yet elegant, Leah was amazing to work with, and such an inspiration to the wedding industry that I highly respect and recommend. A true star and an amazing person. I was truly blessed with working with Leah, as she created more than I could of asked for.

Being an outdoor event I wanted to create a little forrest on the beach. So with the decor, I set it up to be a little fairytale on the edge of the cliff top of the Indian ocean. We had with hanging bulbs to sway softly with the wind and lots of greenery to complete the love story themed table setting. I wanted simple, elegant and romantic.

We dressed the gazebo with long draped curtains and floor candles to set that romantic feel, and allowing our gorgeous naked cake with the words LOVE lit up and soft peach roses to set off the look. Cutting of the cake was amazing with jets set off to create that wow factor.

Getting guests away from everyday life was a huge part of what made our wedding day such an amazing experience, as we relaxed and lazed around the stunning resort and shared great times together."

There is a great feature to chat with the person before purchasing. I really like the notes about scams and paying with PayPal, and felt very confident with the purchase. To improve, I would like to see a better filter for the names of dresses. I was looking for a specific dress from a specific brand, and it was easy to search by brand, but not by the name of the dress. I also would like to see more filters for size, with the measurements of the dress instead of just the size. Also, height is very important for dresses and it is impossible to tell the height from the description currently.
