Romantic Bali Wedding: Jaime + Wes


Hopefully you saw Jaime + Wes’ gorgeous Beach Welcome dinner this morning – and now it’s time to share their gorgeous wedding! Their wedding was styled beautifully by none other than Beth Helmstetter Events and took place in the lobby of the Amanusa (in Bali) that was transformed with Balinese church pews and a stunning fabric backdrop (wait until you see it!) with hundreds of candles. So, so romantic! Jaime carried loose, organic blooms of peonies, herbs, ranunculous and french tulips. Cocktail hour took place under the Amanusa’s terrace overlooking the Indian Ocean and then for dinner, guests dined poolside at long wood tables draped in soft sheer runners + mismatched vessels of overflowing blooms. Dinner was a 5 course meal followed by dancing until 4am to the Baker Boys. Big thanks to Steve Steinhardt for the gorgeous photos!

And a bit about the wedding from Jaime:

Having spent time in different parts of the world, we knew most of our wedding guests would have to fly to attend. So we decided to choose Bali, Indonesia – a beautiful, spiritual, serene location that NO one was from! We wanted to make a fun weekend vacation for our guests and have us all experience something new together. We chose the Amanusa Resort for the location of our wedding. The first night was an Indonesian Beach BBQ. With both of us being huge foodies, it was important to us that all our guests got the “local street food” experience. We approached our favorite local vendors – Naughty Nuris in Ubud and a corn stand in Jimbaran Bay to cook up our favorites for our guests to try. The best surprise of the night was my father had arranged for a private fireworks show. It was a complete surprise and was a great way to top off the night.



It was important for me that the wedding be a reflection of our style and our taste. Yas Imamaura from Quill & Fox provided all of the stationery. It was extremely personalized – the save the dates were in the form of a post card and featured an illustration of our pets (all 6 of them!) and ourselves in Bali and the invites were inspired by the Balinese wood work and featured opening doors that were created with kraft paper. I also had Yas design custom tissue paper in the style of our suite and used it for the welcome baskets.

As I work in fashion, I always knew I wanted to design my own bridesmaid dresses. It was great fun and allowed me to personalize each dress to each girl’s personality. We ran into a little blip when my best friend got pregnant, but we were able to change the dress at the last minute to accommodate her growing belly! I was even able to create a lace gown for myself that I wore at the cake cutting. The experience was so gratifying and all the compliments have led me to wanting to do something in the bridal arena in the near future.

Love the dresses Jaime! Can’t wait to see what else you design for the bridal world soon!! We’ll be waiting :)

Our wedding decor was exactly what we wanted – it was so grand and beautiful, yet extremely inviting and cozy. Beth Helmstettter art directed the local florists to help me create my dream flower arrangements and bouquets.

My favorite paper good item was the signature drink stirrer – it was an ode to our mutual friend that introduced us! It was an illustration of her with two victory signs – an image we all clearly know well when she’s had a few too many drinks!

  14. I love the ribbon backdrop for the ceremony! I have tried to duplicate this look for a baby shower in the past but it was expensive and time-consuming. I bought rolls of ribbon and tied them onto a dowel rod but they didn’t seem long enough once the project was complete. How was this ribbon backdrop done and does anyone have suggestions on how to make these?
    Love this wedding!

    • Did you ever find an answer for this? I’m wondering the same thing! I’m thinking it’s actually fabric rather than ribbon? Any tips you have would be helpful!

  15. Beautiful reception styling… breathtaking in fact. Thanks for sharing, and a big congratulations on your wedding day!

  16. We absolutely love the ceremony backdrop and are wondering if you could tell us what material you used?

    We’d love to use it for inspiration. Thank you!
