US Actress and Karma Ambassador Briana Evigan recently celebrated her nuptials with her longtime partner Damien Mander at breathtaking Karma Kandara in Bali – and it was the definition of a fairytale wedding. Street dance fans will be familiar with Briana from her roles in the Step Up franchise, where she played Andie West – while she also made a name for herself as a ‘scream queen’ in films like Sorority Row and Mother’s Row. However, Evigan eschewed high energy dance moves in favour of effortless grace and elegance on the occasion of her wedding..
The celebration was a fusion of cultures and traditions, featuring both Balinese and Christian blessings that added a unique and meaningful touch to the union. The couple exchanged vows against the backdrop of Karma Kandara’s stunning cliff front vistas of the Indian Ocean. Following the ceremony, guests were treated to a sumptuous wedding feast that showcased the vibrant flavours of Balinese cuisine. The celebration continued with a mesmerising fire dance, symbolising the passion and energy of the newlyweds’ love – and giving Briana a chance to show off some of her famous moves!
Briana had this to say about her time with us:
“My experience at Karma Kandara during my wedding week was nothing short of a fairy tale. The secluded and private location, paired with breathtaking views, provided the perfect backdrop for the most important week of my life. The villas were luxurious, offering a blend of comfort and elegance that was unparalleled. They even brought a cold plunge to our room that was well used by everyone! The food and drinks were exceptional, thanks to the culinary expertise of Chef Joseph who curated a spectacular vegetarian and vegan menu for our 190 guests.”
“The attentiveness and care shown by the team were exemplary, especially considering the lively and demanding nature of our group. The resort’s babysitting program was another standout feature, providing us with peace of mind that our children were safe and well-cared for, allowing us and our guests to fully enjoy the festivities.”
To cap off the wedding night, an unforgettable after-party unfolded at Le Club 22 on Karma Beach. The whole occasion had an air of barefoot-hedonism, with the white sands and turquoise waters providing the perfect setting for guests to dance the night away. We’re delighted Briana chose Karma Kandara as the setting for her special day – and we look forward to welcoming her back at our flagship Bali resort again in the near future. We wish the happy couple a long and beautiful life together 🙂
