 In a pavilion on the shores of the Andaman sea, a couple finds the perfect ceremony location.

Alicia Sinclair is one of four sisters, three of whom got married in one year. “Since our wedding was last, we wanted something very different,” she says. So she and her then fiancé, Ben Moran, decided to wow their guests with a one-of-a-kind destination wedding. When they saw photos of the spectacular Thai pavilion at Phulay Bay, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve, they knew they had found their venue.

On the shores of the breathtaking Andaman Sea, tables are set for an intimate three-course Thai dinner on the lawn.
