Let’s just pretend for a moment that it’s not back to work and school for us all and settle into this beyond gorgeous wedding that we have for you on this back to reality type of morning. Let’s just linger for a few precious minutes and take in this beyond gorgeous wedding sent into us by the amazing talents over at Alchemy Fine Events & Invitations. You’ll no doubt notice right away the fancy Manolo footwear and that perfectly ruffled and flirty Oscar de la Renta gown on the it’s-not-fair-how-pretty-she-is bride. Okay, now que the collective sigh and swoon! Now let’s just ponder for a moment that beyond gorgeous floating floral seating chart and how they transformed a cabana at night into a super cool hookah lounge. Ummm, hello amazing! Thank goodness Lisa Hourin Photography was there to capture all the modern details of this Moroccan themed soirée. Join me in the gallery and postpone reality for a few more precious minutes!
From Alchemy Fine Events & Invitations…This modern Moroccan themed wedding was set at the luxurious Colony Palms in Southern California’s Palm Springs. We infused the brightly colored palette with pops of modern white ceramic statues of elephants and pineapples. For the seating card display, we hung rows of garland and gold beads and tied on the guest’s seating card with twine. Guests were asked to have their photo taken with a Polaroid camera and replace their seating card with the photo.
The white elephants on the main table mimic the kissing elephants on the invitation and were filled with fruit and flowers as an offering to the gods of love. The linen on the main table was custom painted to replicate the pattern I designed on the back of the invitation. The chic red and white cabanas were transformed into a swanky hookah lounge with draped rope, vintage brass candlesticks and regal peacock leaves.
