Okay, words cannot even express how insanely gorgeous this elopement is, but we'll give it a go! This couple, along with so many others in a post-COVID world, decided that all they needed for their big day was the two of them and some seriously gorgeous scenery. They decided on Morocco! After a relaxing spa day in the city followed by a photo shoot, they were off to a great start. The next day, they ventured into the Agafay desert and exchanged vows with the sun as their only witness. Seriously, does it get any more romantic?
Everald and Krista knew they were going to need help to pull off their dream elopement and they turned to The Souk Department to make it all happen. They set them up at Riad Yasmine to start, one of the most luxurious riads in Morrocco. Then, Terres Des Etoiles, with its endless desert views and modern conveniences, was the perfect venue for them to exchange their vows. Jeroen Noordzij Photography took these incredible photos, we don't know how Everald and Krista are going to decide which ones to print...each one is more perfect than the last!

JUST THE TWO OF US
Everald and Krista are a lovely couple from the USA. They wanted to run away together. They dreamed about an intimate celebration of love, focused solely on their desire as a couple to have a marriage that is only between the two of them. So, they went for a getaway elopement in Morocco and asked for the help of The Souk Department as their wedding planner. They did an amazing photoshoot in the Medina of Marrakech. Then, the next day, they went to the Agafay desert to exchange their vows. So dreamy!
A RELAXING DAY IN A MAGICAL CITY
When the couple arrived in Marrakech, they wandered around the magical city and decided to go for manis and pedis. After that, the groom went to a local barber. It was time to get ready for their pre-wedding shoot in the medina of Marrakech! Krista & Everald got ready in one of the most beautiful riads we know, Riad Yasmine. Look at this gorgeous couple! They both looked so stunning. Krista and Everald wandered around the medina and Jeroen Noordzij captured this magic moment so well. The colors of Marrakech are unreal! As far as breathtaking photo backdrops, you can’t go to a much better place than Morocco. When the couple was taking photos, this man just came in the picture with his scooter and started yelling at his friends. It was so funny and typical Morocco.
IN THE GLOW OF THE DESERT SUN
The next day Krista and Everald went to the Agafay desert for the second part of their elopement, the vows. The glorious desert welcomed them. This is a place where fairytales come to life. A haven, full of peace and relaxation, soft breeze, and stunning light. The perfect spot for a wedding. The couple exchanged their vows at a magical desert camp, called Terres Des Etoiles, surrounded by beautiful flowers from Le Kiosque á Fleurs Marrakech. We got there right before sunset, so the timing was perfect. The bride and groom got ready in separate tents. They had their first look at such a beautiful spot, it was perfect for their elopement in Morocco. After that, they walked to the spot where they exchanged their vows. All of this at such a magical place. Look at those beautiful golden hour pictures. They then went back to the camp where they had a lovely dinner and danced under the stars.
