Well-Groomed Groom: Bali Destination Wedding

Bali? WHOA. It screams heaven to us. Apparently, for New Zealand & Australia’s A-list couple, Dane Rumble (a.k.a Kid Deft) and Nikki Phillips, it screams... Destination Wedding and so much more!

Commenting about the venue, here’s what Nikki said:
“Bali held many memories for both of us which is why this tropical yet rough oasis was picked at the destination."

And so Semara Uluwatu, a luxurious villa resort located in Bali, Indonesia was THE place for them. Perched high on top of a cliff, with clear blue sky, infinity pool, and gorgeous 180 degree panoramic view of the Indian Ocean as the perfect backdrop, their party went on from daylight to star-studded night. And the color scheme could not go far from…yes, you got it right…Blue.

The notched lapel, single buttoned, slim-fitting suit jacket that Dane wore was in pale blue, as if resembling the gentle ocean breeze. The suit jacket has thin navy blue trims on its hidden pocket openings that made it look modern and oh SO stylish!

The trims also matched his navy blue tie and trousers. Both the modern suit jacket and tapered trousers were from New Zealand’s iconic brand, Hallenstein Brothers.

Inside his jacket, Dane opted for a crisp white cotton shirt, creating an airy look. Cotton obviously was the perfect choice for the hot and humid, tropical Bali weather. And for an added modern touch and a little bling, Dane put on a stripe metal tie clip to his ensemble. We gotta say we really like how he picked such a fresh color combo that exactly describes a modern nautical wedding.
  Well-Groomed Groom Ring and Watch 
The moment we saw that blue faced masculine diver watch and the bold metal ring that Dane wore, we immediately knew those two accessories were well-thought-of statement pieces that every guy would envy. Yep, it certainly has that effect on us ;)

Now putting our envy aside..., Dane made a classic move by outfitting his groomsmen with Hallensteins suits in navy blue. And then, the same crisp white shirt, and brown leather shoes from one of Australia's trendy brand, Urge Footwear - tied their attires together. And to top it off, a white-colored rose boutonniere, and white pocket square were added. Just the right color to go matchy-matchy with the bride's attire.

No doubt, Dane has an impeccable taste, as the whole ensemble made him and his entourage looked both sharp and neat. And considering the brands of choice, he clearly is a proud Down-Under A-lister who supports local brands. Now that is a bold statement that deserves our thumbs-up!

Well-Groomed Groom: Bright Bold and Playful

Bright retro yellow truck for the big day? Oh, so classic! We cannot not smile looking through this bold and charming wedding.

To create that relaxed semi-formal air all around, the couple opted to have their wedding outdoors at the Lionsgate Center, home of the iconic painted walls. Keeping up with the bold, whimsical theme, the palette is bright and colorful, the photo shoot is playful, and the groom sported a great-looking and copy-worthy preppy outfit.

Head to toe, every thing that he put together seems deliberately thought through. The blue and white plaid shirt is light, crisp and comfy. The pattern blends beautifully with the already bold background. 

He certainly paid extra attention to details. That golden cuff links that match the look of the retro truck....  coincidence? We think not! We also like how he incorporated the French cuff shirt with black trousers, black suspenders and that patterned brick-red bow tie. The red on the bow tie adds a contrasting pop of color to his ensemble and matches the bride's bouquet, while the dotted white flowers complimented the whole attire.

There is a certain degree of extra “Awesomeness” in that red bow tie, as it was no ordinary bow tie. Really. It was a custom made, organic bow tie that was hand-sewn by refugees and asylees who are living in beautiful Colorado, USA. Now that is a gallon of humanity and another classic move.

A rustic, castle-like building that also comes with a spacious lawn and a Coach House - was the venue of this wedding. And lilac and lavender hues were the colors that incorporated everything in this wedding, such as, of course, the groom’s and groomsmen's fashion ensemble.
