When I met Larry and Stella, the first thing that struck me was their friendliness, their respect for me and anyone who worked at their wedding, their smiles and calmness, although the wedding day was the following day. Certainly they are a fantastic couple, from all points of view, but I have to say that who choose to get married in Phuket are generally like that, simply easygoing. Stress is really unknown on this island and that’s one of the reasons I love so much working in Phuket and Thailand. Definitely my favorite destination wedding.
Although both of them have been living in the United States their heritages and their families are Chinese. For this reason, some important traditions in Chinese weddings have been respected, such as the tea ceremony.
The wedding day started very relaxed, with a swim in the pool among the groom’s friends, a few toasts, laughters and jokes. Paresa Resort is located on a cliff overlooking the ocean in Kamala, famous for its beautiful beach. The whole resort is Siamese style, truly exotic and classy. Its infinity pools are incredible and the ceremony place overlooking the ocean is truly breathtaking.
I have to thank Jay, who came directly from New York to be my second operator (the same one who helped me with Tony and Lily’s wedding at The Plaza). And he did a great job.
Another thanks goes to my friend Xiate who helped me with the translations of the speeches and the ceremony. I’m studying Chinese but my level is still too low at the moment! 🙂
Last but not least I have to thank Larry and Stella for giving me the chance to work once again in this wonderful place. The scents of Thailand, the white beaches of Phuket, the colors of the sky, the lush plants, flowers and delicious fruit. Everything is amazing on this island and every time I finish a work there I can’t wait to come back. A little secret … I already have a booking for February 2020 😉 So…if you are looking for a wedding videographer in Phuket or Krabi for that time, just email me!
