Anna & Rachid

Life seems so much easier when you dance through it just like Anna and Rachid. The dynamic duo met in Norway almost two decades ago and have competed and traveled around the world together and fell in love along the way. They competed and taught dance together for the past 17 years and on 2018 Rachid finally popped the question on a spontaneous trip in Madrid while they were on a boat ride. “We compete and teach dance together so we spend a lot of time together. thankfully, we never get tired of each other!” they said affectionately.

The decorations were the epitome of simplicity and elegance draped with green, white, and gold accents to enhance the venue’s natural beauty. Orchids adorned the setting and was also used for Anna’s bouquet and Rachid’s boutonniere. Since the couple have never been to Bali before, they had to trust Tirtha with the decorations and they were only able to check out the venue a few months prior to the wedding. “We were a little worried that it wouldn’t look the same in reality, but it was even more beautiful!” they exclaimed. Being a professional dancer, Anna has worn all kinds of gorgeous bedazzled dresses so for her ceremony gown, she chose a simple long-sleeved open back Atelier Pronovias dress with a long train. The dress accentuates her slim figure, making her even more stunning. She also chose a more flexible dress by Toni Maticevski for the dinner reception she could dance in. Rachid was sharply dressed wearing a custom made suit by Blugiallo Sweden and even surprised Anna by revealing an embroidery behind his collar saying “I love you” during the photoshoot. The two were more than excited to finally get married. They’ve been through many events and challenges together that the wedding jitters never hit. The two were relaxed and enjoyed each other’s company, worried about nothing and just flowing through the day with happy moments.

“We were calm and just looked forward to a beautiful day with family and friends,” they said.

The dinner reception was eventful as the guests laughed, danced, and mingled with each other. the couple surprised the guests with a dance routine for their first dance and soon everyone joined in from their 3 years old niece to Anna’s 90 years old grandmother. Even the guests had specials dances prepared to perform for the couple. With all the dancing, energy needs to be replenished with a scrumptious 5 course meal. “every dish was delicious, but the dessert stole our hearts.” Anna and Rachid praised. From the arrival to the stone house villa, the chapel, to the dinner and everything else really brought the beautiful night together. “Everyone keeps talking about the special atmosphere we had, and we think it’s a combination of our guests and the stunning venue which made the day very special.”
