They say there’s nothing worse than rain on your wedding day. But for Candace and Henry, nothing could dampen their spirits. Tying the knot at Thailand’s beautiful Aleenta Phuket-Phang Nga Resort & Spa, the two felt nothing but pure joy when the weather started to change during the festivities. Of course, expert help from the venue’s staff probably had something to do with it. “Our wedding coordinator did an amazing job when it came to dealing with the rain,” says Candace. “We were able to do everything we wanted!”
After exchanging vows in a heartfelt beach ceremony, Candace and Henry wandered the venues golden sands for a fun-filled photo session with their bridal party and a cheeky photo-bombing elephant calf. That’s what we call wedding photography goals.
Joining friends and family for an outdoor reception under twinkling fairy-lights, the newlyweds tucked into a delicious Thai-inspired feast and shared a very romantic first dance. “It was such a sweet moment when we had our first dance and it started to rain,” remembers Candace. “It felt like it was just the two of us there.” Topping everything off, the couple treated guests to a dazzling fireworks display and later sent paper lanterns floating into the sky. “It was my dream wedding come to life!” We’ll second that, Candace!
