Tip & Nick | Coriander in Redwood Mae Sariang Wedding

Coriander in Redwood Mae Sariang Wedding

Tip and Nick’s fabulous 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. It was their family home, and 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 wedding began with a traditional monk’s blessing, followed by the couple offering lunch to the monks as a symbol of respect. Then, the couple had their Western-style wedding ceremony on the lush lawn, blending cultures. Afterward, the couple departed on a motorbike with a sidecar, adding a touch of adventure to their celebration!
In the evening, Coriander in Redwood came alive with the aroma of Thai cuisine. Guests enjoyed a sumptuous meal of Northern Thai food, some of the best I have ever had at a wedding! A live band brought the evening to life, and the bride joined them on stage to belt out some classics. It was a day that combined tradition and adventure, all within the beautiful family home of Coriander in Redwood.

Coriander in Redwood

Coriander in Redwood, located in Mae Sariang, Mae Hong Son, stands as the premier restaurant in the area. The century-old log trader’s home transformed into a warm, inviting eatery adorned with redwood accents.
The building boasts a rich history of over 90 years, constructed from redwood. It was once the property of a local Thai resident and later served as the office and house of Englishmen. During those times, people transported logs down the Yuam River to Myanmar.
Coriander in Redwood commits to serving local traditional Thai cuisine. It was the best food I have ever had at a wedding!

Mae Sariang Thailand

Nestled in beauty, the quaint district town of Mae Sariang unveils itself in all its serene glory. Lush, forested hills embrace the landscape, and verdant paddy-filled valleys extend as far as the eye can see. Here, in this idyllic setting, you’ll discover the subtle allure of Mae Sariang.
As you meander through the town’s meandering streets, a history treasure trove unfolds before you. Weathered teak buildings, each with a unique story etched into its wooden facade, are a testament to a bygone era. These architectural gems transport you back in time, allowing you to imagine the town’s rich past.
But Mae Sariang’s charm isn’t confined to its architectural heritage alone. The town also boasts a handful of captivating Burmese and Shan-style wats. Their intricate designs and ornate details beckon travelers to explore their spiritual significance. These wats are living testaments to the cultural connections that crisscross this borderland.

Mae Sariang Riverside

Mae Sariang offers a selection of delightful accommodations. Each hotel provides a unique glimpse into the heart of traditional, small-town Thailand. Some options are cozy guesthouses tucked away in quiet alleys and riverside bungalows.
Mae Sariang is more than a destination; it’s a gateway to a slower pace of life, a portal to a world where time seems to stand still. Located in the southern reaches of Mae Hong Son province, it marks the southernmost point of the famous Mae Hong Son Loop from Chiang Mai.
It’s a place where the hustle and bustle of modern life fade into the background, and the tranquility of nature takes center stage. I can highly recommend a visit to Mae Sariang, let this timeless town weave its spell on you.
