It all started with a simple e-mail.
Tony Bruggemans, a legendary tourism figure in Indonesia who now runs together with his Brother, Paul, the famous Le Vallauris Restaurant
in Palm Springs, California, recently wrote J.M. "Jack" Daniels, his old friend and colleague at Bali Discovery Tours
asking for some assistance.
It seems, Tony had recently handled the catering arrangements for the California wedding of Cassie and Alex Lorge. In the process of assisting the Lorge's in celebrating their big day in Palm Springs, Tony, who had developed a genuine fondness for the couple, discovered that the newlyweds were destined to Bali for their honeymoon. Wheels begin to spin, ideas were generated and Tony determined he'd like to make something "special" happen half-way round the world for two young people he had grown to like and admire.
After an e-mail to Jack at Bali Discovery
who, in turn, consulted David Wilson, the General Manager of the Ritz Carlton Bali, Resort and Spa
- a welcoming plan for the newly-betrothed Mr. and Mrs. Lorge was hatched.
Touching down at Bali's Ngurah Rai Airport in the mid-afternoon of Tuesday, April 12th, a limousine delivered them to the hotel where they were intercepted at the perimieter gate by the Resort's Executive Assistant Manager, Christopher Clark, where Cassie and Alex were moved to the hotel's antique carriage drawn by two white horses. klip, klok, klip, klop . . .
they made a leisurely but regal approach through the gardens to the Ritz Carlton's
main entrance where they were whisked to upgraded accommodation in a suite arranged by the Resort where a bottle of wine awaited, presented with the compliments of David Wilson and Tony Bruggemanns.
Guests for 4 nights at the Resort voted among the world's very best, Alex was heard to exclaim to his new bride "Holy Schnikes" as they admired Jimbaran Bay from the window of their luxurious honeymoon suite.
