Peaceful Javanese traditional music welcomed the guests. The atmosphere made the guests feel as if they were in Java Palace until they arrived at Siraman area. The remarkable ocean background of Pecatu brought them back into reality that they are in goddess island Bali.
It represents a belief that wherever we live we have to keep our attitude and mind nicely. Unfortunately we did not have much jasmine garland due to wedding date of Numa & Risma was very close to Moslem Day. Jasmine farmers and garland stylists went to their hometown to celebrate Idul Fitri Day. For the decoration in Javanese ceremony area we “imported” artificial garland from Blitar, a small town in East Java. Then for the Groom and Bride accessories, the real jasmine garlands came from Solo, Central Java.
It is believed that its beautiful and intricate carvings and ornaments on Javanese backdrop Gebyok tell about wisdom and prosperous life. Vine plants shape in its carvings show the value of maintaining a good relationship with family, community, and business partners. These philosophy is expected to brighten up the new life of the bride and the groom so that they always keep these moral values in living their life. There is a couple of Wooden Groom & Bride statue, dressed in traditional Javanese clothes, kneeling nearby the Bridal Seat. These statue is symbolizing of Dewi Sri, the fertility and prosperity goddess.
We do not offer something fancy for the lunch area
just simple but surely memorable
The atmosphere was immediately changed once guest entered lunch area, the decoration concept is unity of exotic Bali, humble Java, and classical European.
Sore Sore Lounge
Once guest come back from Javanese processions to lower garden, lunch area already turned into afternoon lounge. We created collaboration of rustic French and old-fashioned Indonesian style.
Dinner Reception by the magical sunset
The lighting color, centerpieces, fresh flowers, decorative elements… Different from Lunch and Cocktails lounge, the reception point is elegant in Javanese atmosphere.
Numa and Risma do not want place card on the dinner table. It is not a serious problem, guest have a pleasant way to finding out their seat. We put signage board of table chart presenting character of the ten Wayang warriors and invite guest to choose their dinner table based on the warrior character they like. Event coordinator assist them on how to mentioning the wayang’s names. On the way entering reception area they told us ″I am Srikandi, I am Arjuna, I am Bima…″
