Today I am thrilled to share this stunning Moroccan inspired Wedding Styled shoot.
Images were captured by Sandra Chile Photography.
Melissa of Devoted to You Events shares the story & inspiration behind the shoot
“Sometimes the ability to see beauty within a world of chaos pays off in a big way!”
“One may have looked at my garden a few weeks back and been completely and totally overwhelmed with its overgrown junglelike appearance, but all I could see was greatness.”
“I knew that with a little love mixed with a lot of sweat and hard work, it could be transformed into something incredible.”
“So we decided that a Moroccan Infused Garden Party, would be the perfect theme for this special place and the styled shoot I had in mind!”
“When it came time to choose the vendors that would help bring our vision to life, we couldn’t have chosen a more perfect combination of people to do so.”
“In my opinion, when it comes to weddings, a vision is only as good as the team of people that you have helping you and working beside you to transform an idea into a reality.”
“So let’s start with the blooms!”
“The lush and vibrant florals as well the patterned rugs and smaller and more intricate decor pieces were provided by greenSinner, a flower company that is sustainable and ethical on their practices.”
“When creating the overall feel and look for this shoot, contrast, texture and layers were key.”
“We also wanted to make sure to incorporate bold colors with softer elements to create a rich and luxurious feel to that is indicative of Moroccan design, so we knew that we needed the perfect vintage pieces to really add to the ambiance of the garden.”
“One thing that was consistent throughout the planning was the vision of lanterns of different shapes and sizes to be used for multiple purposes.”
“Vintage Alley rentals provided the most perfect lanterns as well as many other pieces that really helped to tie the whole look together.”
“That blue chippy door fit into the space like it had been there for 100 years, the low Simone coffee table served as the absolute perfect sweetheart table and reception table and the farm table that we chose for the dessert table shined like a diamond in the rough under the gleam of the twinkle lights.”
“And speaking of those desserts!!”
“The Butterwood Bake Consortium provided the delicious sweets including that gorgeous naked cake adorned with figs that almost looked too good to eat. Almost!”
“Now on to all of those paper products…”
“The stationery pieces were all designed and hand painted by Erin from Fresh Cut Prints to incorporate the grit and texture found cohesively throughout Moroccan design.”
“By using a variety of watercolor methods finished off with gold mehndi accents, she was able to create a suite that embodied the abundance of texture and pattern that is seen throughout Moroccan culture.”
“Last but certainly not least was the dress from Anais Annette.”
“That dress. Really no words that I have can accurately describe how perfect it was for this and how stunning our model looked in it.”
“In my mind there really was no other choice other than this one, a heavily adorned lace, with a low cut back.”
“And let’s talk about our model for a moment…I mean we always knew she was good behind the camera, but once Justine from Beauty Justified worked her magic on her and she slipped into that dress, Lauren looked liked she was a natural and belonged nowhere else but in front of the camera!!”
“In the end, we were blown away at how all of the details came together and how our vendors worked together as the perfect team to bring a vision to life.”
Thank you so much to Sandra for allowing me to share her extraordinary photography, to Melissa for her design and the gorgeous work of the collaborative team.
This pretty Moroccan inspired wedding styled shoot with its vibrant colours is conceptually outstanding, and the exquisite details perfectly encapsulate moroccan culture with a myriad of inspiration for couples to create their own special day.
