Vivianne and Andrew's Wedding at YL Residence in Koh Samui

Koh Samui wedding YL Residence bride and groom portrait on beach

I think Thailand is one of the most beautiful places you can have a destination wedding. So I was super psyched to visit Koh Samui for the first time earlier this year to photograph the Thai wedding of Vivianne and Andrew. The morning started early with bridal prep and tea ceremonies at the ShaSa Resort & Residences. Down the road, the ceremony and reception was started at sunset on the beachside of the beautiful YL Residence No.17. The setting was of course postcard-esque but I also loved the details of small matted photo prints decorated throughout the wedding venue, the Viewmaster with their pre-wedding photos, and Andrew's amazing rendition of George Benson's Nothing's Gonna Change My Love For You. Swoon!
