Ever dreamed of having a Destination Wedding in Paradise?  Well, look no further than BALI, INDONESIA.  For JENN and BROCK, the FOUR SEASONS RESORT in JIMBARAN BAY couldn't have been a more perfect place for their dream wedding.  The hotel staff and the services they provided were beyond impeccable.  The wedding vendors were all referred by the resort using a lot of their local amenities that were fresh, luscious and unique like no other i've ever seen.  Weather was very hot and humid (I must have changed clothes at least 4 times).  But that didn't stop anyone from celebrating their amazing day.  It was attended by an intimate group of their closest friends and families who flew from around the globe ... and what a great time they all had.  The ceremony took place atop a barge that was built above the calm waters of Jimbaran Bay lending itself to a spectacular view of nature's serenity.  We were all embraced by the rich beauty of the island's exotic balinese cultures, lush gardens, fresh tropical fruits, warm sea breeze, and of course the welcoming hospitality of the local natives ..... including the monkeys that were abound.  From sunrise to sunset, this magical kingdom is one place you'll never want to leave.  Suffice it to say, it was a fairy tale Wedding that they will never ever forget ... and neither will I!
