Sonya Davison and Judd Sanchez celebrate their union with a dream wedding in Bali
Judd Sanchez whisks Sonya Davison away for a dream wedding in the beautiful island of Bali
Seen in commercials as well as television shows like The Apartment, model and television host Sonya Davison has a deep appreciation for all things artistic. However, just like any other young lady, she has had her fair share of ups and downs when it came to finding Mr Right. Her luck changed for the better when she met her husband at the VIP preview party for the grand opening of Ku Dé Ta in Marina Bay Sands, Singapore. “I attended his birthday party a few months later and we became great friends the following year. We would workout, meet for drinks, and have many lunches and dinners together, but we were always seeing other people,” Sonya recalls.
One special day, after a night of endless conversation until the sun came up, the two finally expressed their feelings for each other. “I guess our feelings have always been there, but it took that special moment for us both to realise it... falling in love with your best friend is truly the best kind of relationship in my opinion,” Sonya reveals with a content smile. After getting to know each other for more than a year, Judd decided to pop the question. His romantic proposal involved a trip to Bali where he proposed at sunset on an isolated beach trailed with lanterns. He went all out with butlers and a seven-course meal set out on a four-poster bed. “I hardly ate a thing; I felt like my world was spinning in such an amazing way. When he dropped down on one knee, I was surprised, dizzy and absolutely elated! Of course, I said yes, immediately,” Sonya tells us.
The couple enjoyed being engaged for a year before actively planning the wedding. They decided on having it in Bali as they have many romantic moments there and wanted to share the location with loved ones. Situated on a cliff top and offering a breathtaking ocean view, Villa Latitude was the perfect
venue. With Judd’s support and his only request was to have an open bar, Sonya planned her dream wedding over the span of two years. She designed every detail from the wedding ceremony floral arch and the sixtier wedding cake down to the napkins and custom logos on the goodie bags. The classic, timeless and elegant white theme ensured that the ambience of the wedding reception was nothing short of a fairy-tale.
Sonya walked down the aisle with her father to Time to Say Goodbye by Andrea Bocelli and then walked out with her husband to Viva la Vida by Coldplay. The ceremony included the release of two white doves and personalised vows which brought the couple to tears. This was followed by a two-hour free flow cocktail session which really got the party going. Thanks to the amazing DJ, guests were dancing in between courses and had to be ushered back to their tables so they could be served. There were fire dancers and pyrotechnics during the cake-cutting ceremony, followed by the bouquet toss and a special garter toss containing a flask of whisky to ensure that the guys participated.
