Traveling is one of the things that
I have missed the most during Covid.
While I cannot physically travel internationally, often I travel in my mind. My mental travels led me to Morocco and was the inspirations behind creating this shoot. I reached out to some of my favorite vendor friends and without hesitation we were all aboard the imaginary train to Morocco with stunning imagery by Mo Davis Photography.

Il Mercato Events
I have always loved Il Mercato Events for its old world charm and thought it was the perfect backdrop for this color design.
ll Mercato Events: is a Special Events Venue Designed to reflect the historical beauty of its Lower Garden District location, the embodiment of sophistication and elegance for romantic weddings. Built in 1931, Il Mercato’s unique architecture features an expansive private courtyard surrounding an outdoor fireplace; a beautiful ballroom with herringbone wood floors and Italianate chandeliers; an intimate library; and a luxurious women’s lounge. Original architectural details like brass doors, steel frame windows, and grand arches pay homage to the building’s history while gas lanterns, reclaimed brick, and French wall panels give the space a modern romantic aesthetic.
Tassel and a moroccan merchant cart were the first pieces of inspirations, the remaining details unfolded effortlessly. Adding vibrant hues was a must for our Moroccan Market inspired wedding.
Lovegood Wedding & Event Rentals
Lauren of Lovegood Wedding & Event Rentals immediately put together a mood board of vintage furniture pieces that would work best with the design. Together we went through all the details and finalized a design that was fun, fresh and like nothing I have ever seen before in the space.
Using bamboo chairs, tassel umbrellas, assorted area rugs, gold table, soft seating lounges, colorful poufs, mixed-matched assorted pillows, wicker baskets and much more authentic Moroccan decor adorned the space and brought it to life.
The courtyard space at Il Mercato Events felt right giving an authentic old world feel to the design. I loved every detail of this design, however, my favorite part of the design are the lounge vignettes, nestled under the arches. I will have my cocktail right here, thank you!
To see it all come together on the day of was amazing! Mo Davis Photography and Eskimo Love Stories documented this shoot far better than I could have ever imagined.
