If you asked 150 of your closest friends from all over the world to meet you in Indonesia, would they come? That's exactly what Sophie and Matt did as they celebrated their wedding day in beautiful Bali. The really amazing part of this story...everyone they invited, came. And this amazing couple had everyone they loved around them as the celebrated, laughed and enjoyed one another throughout four days under the sun.
One Tree was thrilled to be among those invited to be part of Sophie and Matt’s celebration.
Along with my pregnant wife Melissa, we loaded up and made the 10,000-mile trip of a lifetime. Battling swollen feet, heat stroke and an almost comical sense of jet lag, we made it through to capture the culture and beauty that embodies the rich island of Bali. We saw rice farmers protecting themselves from the heat, babies carried on shooters as if they were loaves of bread and sunsets that tell new story everyday. We took a three-hour bike ride with the couple and their guests, passing by a volcano and slapping hands with Balinese children as they yelled "hello" in English. All this and we were lucky enough to document a wedding that was as beautiful as the couple being united. Our hope, as filmmakers, is to put you there so you can experience Bali and the union of Sophie and Matt right along with us.
