Sarah & Luke | 137 Pillars House Wedding Chiang Mai

137 Pillars House Chiang Mai Wedding

Sarah and Luke had an enchanting Chiang Mai wedding in Thailand. In the morning, we explored the charming city of Chiang Mai with a captivating photoshoot. Chiang Mai is a city of picturesque landscapes and bustling streets.
The couple exchanged vows under a big tree at the stunning 137 Pillars House, a beautiful venue surrounded by lush greenery. The Chiang Mai wedding venue is in an elegant setting with exquisite decor. The traditional Thai elements added a touch of cultural richness to their wedding.
With its timeless allure, 137 Pillars House Chiang Mai is brimming with a storied colonial heritage. This award-winning gem is situated near the historic Wat Gate Temple and the Ping River and is perfect for a Chiang Mai wedding.

Chiang Mai Wedding

The hub of Northern Thailand, Chiang Mai is the Capital City of the Province of this name. With a population of over 170,000 in the city proper (but more than 1 million in the metropolitan area), it is Thailand’s fifth-largest city. Located on a plain at an elevation of 316 m, surrounded by mountains and lush countryside, it is much greener and quieter than the capital. It has a cosmopolitan air and a significant ex-pat population, which has led many from Bangkok to settle in this “Rose of the North.”
Founded in 1296 CE, Chiang Mai is a fascinating city, at one time the capital of the ancient Lanna kingdom. Among the rolling foothills of the Himalayan Mountains, people could only reach it by an elephant trek until the 1920s. This isolation helped keep Chiang Mai’s distinctive charm intact.

Rose of the North

Chiang Mai’s historical center is a walled city. (The city is Chiang in the northern Thai dialect while Mai is new, hence Chiang Mai or New City.) Sections of the wall dating to their restoration a few decades ago remain at the gates and corners. But of the rest, only the moat remains.
Inside Chiang Mai’s remaining city walls are more than 30 temples dating back to the founding of the principality. Beautiful wood carvings adorn them in Burmese, Sri Lankan, and Lanna Thai styles. The most famous is Wat Phrathat Doi Suthep, which overlooks the city from a mountainside 13 km away.
