Tori and Joel met each other performing in a Balinese gamelan orchestra, called Gamelan Dharma Swara, almost ten years ago. Their ensemble was invited to perform at a music festival in 2014 at Basilica Hudson, which marked a turning point in the direction their ensemble would take. The venue itself came to have great sentimental value for the couple and they could think of no better a place to have their wedding! Most of the wedding was a DIY affair, from the giant paper clouds hanging above the guests, to the wedding cake itself. But the best part of their wedding? The two says that involving so many of their friends – many of whom are members of the ensemble – was so incredibly special to the two of them! Congratulations Tori and Joel!
