Bali Wedding Chapel, Samabe Bali Suites & Villas

During our trip to Greece last year, I had this epiphany that we should take our wedding vows at Oia and casually brought it up to C. Funnily, C took it quite seriously and responded that our families should be around when we take our vows. So I took a mental note of it and forgot about that episode… until he proposed while we were in Miami and I was like…

“Are we getting married in Oia?!!”

Coming back to reality 😦 C and I decided to take our vows in Bali because flying our immediate families to Santorini wasn’t quite an option given how impractical it was. (Come on, a girl can dream!) We wanted somewhere nearby as our family members age are between 2 to 84 years old. After some googling, I thought the next best option was the cliff top scenes at Uluwatu, Bali. After we got back from US, we booked our tickets to Bali and started scouting for venues. Look what we stumbled on!


There are quite a number of potential venues on the list, but I found out that no bride gets married on a whim – our chosen date 9/9 was booked at most places in May. We chose this date because it means “long long” in Chinese, and that’s how we like our marriage to last. Thankfully, we found out about Samabe Resort from a local we spoke to. Our initial plan was to take our wedding vows at Pandawan Cliff Estate Rose Villa but when we walked into the Pearl Chapel at Samabe Bali Suites & Villas, I had that surreal feeling I had in Oia and knew this was it! 4 months later, we flew our immediate family over and made the best decisions of our lives!

Here you have it, some raw unedited pictures from last Friday… Including an epic photobomb by my niece



Completely in love with this place. Promise to upload more pictures when they are ready!
