exotic interlude

the akad nikah was followed by the menyarung cincin and bersanding ceremonies all graciously executed on another pelamin across a white-draped hall lined with rows of crystal chiavari chairs.  for these rituals, we created a pelamin that repeated the austere forest element but featured a contemporary representation of the client's refined Malay heritage in the form of a bespoke daybed with accompanying bunga pahars encased in frame pedestals embellished with flower balls.  we scattered stands of flower arrangements swathed in lianas near the walls and hanged them in triplicates from the center of the draped ceiling and the four corners of the hall to render an exotic essence to the atmosphere befitting the extraordinary charm of the bride and groom.
