Romantic Moroccan-Inspired Wedding


One piece of advice that I sometimes give to brides who ask me about their wedding plans is that every single detail doesn’t need to be a revolutionary new concept–instead, focus on one or two statement elements and make them extra special. I’ve noticed that many weddings I’m drawn to follow that sort of pattern, and I think today’s does as well. Every piece is gorgeous and special, but the lush, colorful, rich flowers really elevate everything to the next level! Of course, starting with a beautiful venue is a must as well, and Korakia Pensione could not be more perfect for this Moroccan-inspired wedding.
