Wedding Day

On the morning of the wedding the bride took her family out for breakfast to a swanky place called Ku De Ta.  We all started with bellinis, then I had ricotta flapjacks with blueberry sauce and maple syrup.
They were ready for Easter with the creepiest bunnies I've ever seen.  The breakfast was excellent though.  It was a little disconcerting when we arrived - they check the underside of all cars with mirrors to make sure they are not coming in with explosive devices.
The ceremony took place at the end of the lawn, before the dropoff to the beach.  This happened at the villa where we (bride's family) were staying.  I spent the afternoon watching as the grounds were transformed into a fairy tale setting, which was really quite fun.  The Balinese do not move quickly.

Happy bride, groom & baby.  The groom is not wearing a transparent shirt - the poor man was soaked.  It was so hot and ridiculously humid.  We girls are so lucky that we can wear spaghetti straps and blowy skirts in that kind of weather.

After the Balinese dancers (see previous post), champagne and hors d'oeuvres, we moved over to the bride's villa for dinner & dancing.  Like I said earlier - fairy tale setting.  She even managed to schedule a clear sky with a full moon.

Of course, no wedding dinner would be complete without the FIRE DANCERS in between dinner and dessert.

The dessert table was incredible.  This is a tiny portion.

I went to bed at a reasonable hour, so I missed the communal swim.  Everybody went in the pool, in their clothes, many with their shoes still on.  Yup, that is the happy couple in all their finery.  Trying to save on the post-wedding dry cleaning bill, no doubt.
