Verna & Tinos beautiful Thailand wedding weekend began with a Thai themed welcome dinner held at the beautiful Samujana Villas in Koh Samui, Thailand. The stunning Villas at Samujana are so clean and modern that it was important to me to create a design that was respectful of that. To juxtapose the more traditional garden elegance of the wedding, I suggested that we go with a more tropical style design, using fruits and vegetables as decor. Hundreds of candles lined the staircases as guests arrived and were greeted with Thai basil mojitos. Cotton lanterns hung in trees, and hundreds of candles floated in the pool and all fountains. Guests sat at modern clear chairs to mimic the open and ethereal architecture. Herbs, fruits and vegetables were used as tabletop decor nestled between candles. Guests were offered a number of Thai dishes at stations, including salads, noodles and a slow roasted pig. After dinner guests were offered a number of activities including karaoke, basketball machine and beer pong.
