Brianna & Dan


Breanna & Dan were married at Villa the Sanctuary, Bali. I've been visiting Bali since I was a kid, and while the place has changed a lot there's still magic there, something very special about the people and the island. I was married there myself 10 years ago, so to be invited to shoot someone else's wedding there a decade later was a wonderful feeling.

The Sanctuary is a beautiful venue, hidden in a forested gorge in a quiet farming community, ten individual bales fit beautifully into the hillside, with a grassy amphitheater at the heart of the resort to serve as an outdoor reception space. Above this space fairy lights are strung between palm trees, and above them the stars. Around it a rushing creek and hillsides hung with mist.

All of this set the stage for what was a stunning wedding: sumptuous styling, amazing food, a magnetic couple, and a party that (I'm told) kept on until dawn.
