Coriander in Redwood Mae Sariang Wedding
Tip and Nick’s wonderful wedding at Tip’s family home, Coriander in Redwood, Mae Sariang, Mae Hong Song Province, Thailand
Coriander in Redwood, nestled amidst the tranquil Redwood forest, held a special place in the hearts of the Tip family. Originally their family home, it had transformed into a welcoming restaurant for weary travelers. Its charm lay in its picturesque location along the river and expansive lawns, making it an ideal choice for their Thailand wedding.
The day began with a traditional monk’s blessing, followed by the couple offering lunch to the monks as a symbol of respect. A Western-style wedding ceremony took place on the lush lawn, blending cultures seamlessly. Afterward, the couple departed on a motorbike with sidecar, adding a touch of adventure to their celebration!
As evening descended, Coriander in Redwood came alive with the aroma of Thai cuisine. Guests enjoyed a sumptuous meal and live music, creating an atmosphere of joy and celebration. It was a day that beautifully combined tradition and adventure, all within the serene embrace of Coriander’s natural beauty.
Coriander in Redwood
Coriander in Redwood, located in Mae Sariang, Mae Hong Son, proudly stands as the premier restaurant in the area. This century-old log trader’s home, now part of the Riverhouse Hotel group, has been lovingly transformed into a warm and inviting eatery adorned with redwood accents.
The building boasts a rich history spanning over 90 years, originally constructed entirely from redwood. It was once the property of a local Thai resident and later served as the office and residence of Englishmen who held teak concessions in Thailand during that era. In those times, logs were transported down the Yuam River to meet the Salawin River, continuing their journey through Myanmar.
Coriander in Redwood takes great pride in its commitment to serving locally sourced and traditional Thai cuisine, making it a true culinary gem in the region. I have to say it was the best food I have ever had at a wedding!
