Christian Bautista and Kat Ramnani tied the knot in the beautiful island of Bali, and everything looked absolutely stunning! Their ceremony felt magical, taking place in Tirtha Uluwatu, on a wedding chapel made of glass walls, atop a pool, with the most breathtaking view of the ocean–what a perfect way to say your “I Do’s”, right? The gorgeous bride wore a stunning body-hugging bustier gown by Inbal Dror, and changed into a stunning silhouette dress by the same designer for her reception look. The groom, on the other hand, wore a classic black suit, complete with a striking deep green blazer, by Francis Libiran. Besides everything looking so elegant, the couple managed to incorporate fun details, like the flip-flops and fans as favors, and the donut-topped cake from Naked Patisserie that looked so delicious! Get into this dreamy set through the moments captured by Team Pat Dy Photography! Make sure to check out their wedding SDE too by Jason Magbanua!
Why did you choose to get married in Bali?
Kat: Bali was the first out-of-the-country trip Christian and I took together. We fell in love with the place. It’s such a peaceful island, with so much beauty, and the kindest people–we wanted to share with our guests what we love about Bali. There is also a special kind of feel in a destination wedding–being able to be out of the country with the people you love is such a unique experience. We really wanted to have that with our guests.
What was your vision of your wedding when you were planning?
Kat: We knew we wanted two things: a small, intimate wedding, we wanted to be able to spend time with all our guests, and an immersive celebration and experience for us and our guests. We didn’t start with a look and feel, instead, we started with a set of core competencies, love, and guest experience, so that we could anchor all decisions that emanated from the planning process, simple or difficult, on that principle. It formed a very strong foundation on how we resolved issues, and allowed us to really design the experience around the traits we value.
What was your favorite moment in your wedding? Can you describe it to us?
Kat: The vows. Christian is a man of few words, so having been able to hear his thoughts made me teary-eyed, and it really touched me.
Christian: When Kat sang and played the ukulele. Kat has never sung in public before and she has stage fright. To have her spend 4 months learning how to sing and play a ukulele really touched me. To know that she put that much effort into a surprise really made me so happy.
