Moroccan Love Wedding Inspiration

moroccan love inspiration

What do you get when a talented group of Los Angeles vendors and a New York City based photographer collaborate? A ‘Moroccan Love’ editorial in the heart of LA. And boy is it good! The perfect scene to be inspired by for a city loft wedding, photog Ilene Squires, the designers at One Darling Day, and florist Valerie Jurado beautifully executed a setting filled with the best Moroccan-boho details. You can’t help but fall in love with the hues of blue, fun metallics, and – of course – that amaze bougainvillea backdrop. And we love the story the team dreamt up: a wedding inspired by a couple who met + fell in love in Morocco! Dreamy, no? We think it is!

This ceremony set-up has so much wow-factor! Valerie tells us, We used monochromatic pinks, playing with different blooms like Bougainvillea and 5,000 Dendrobium Orchid blooms for an Ombre affect on the canopy-which was custom made. Oh, and you can’t ignore the creative aisle runner and table runner. We played Tetris with the tiles until we found a perfect pattern. The lanterns…oh the many lanterns, the cylinders with candles, and the one of a kind antique terrarium. Did you see our cake and cocktails? Definitely, a delicious sight.

Since Hudson Loft has a gorgeous rooftop (with great views of Downtown LA), the team took full advantage, staging a sweet portrait session at sunset!

Who else is dreaming of Morocco now?! Pretty cool that you can get this look in the heart of Los Angeles – or any city for that matter!

Thanks to the team for sharing!

PPS Couture Bridesmaid Dresses By Plum Pretty Sugar

Floral Print bridesmaids dresses

For the past few years, we’ve all collectively fallen in love with Plum Pretty Sugar, known for their stunning floral print silk robes. So, when we heard they were expanding their brand to include a couture line of handcrafted gowns, PPS Couture, we had a feeling we’d be falling in love all over again!

The dresses in the PPS Couture collection, which are so, so perfect for your bridesmaids, feature special details such as pockets, detachable sleeves and beautiful hand-draping. The line features four ethereal floral print gowns, made in the USA using delicate chiffon and stunning silk. Choose your favorite to wear for any special occasion or pair them together for an enchanting bridesmaid grouping. We love how they transcend wedding styles, too; being a perfect fit for any aesthetic – from feminine to classic to modern to whimsical…

More from our GWS x Gorjana Collection + a Giveaway!

GWS x Gorjana Bridal Collection

In case you missed our announcement on Monday, we launched our first jewelry collection with Gorjana this week!! We worked very closely with the designers at Gorjana to create these pieces with the wedding day in mind. A rose gold statement cuff for the bride, pretty rings for the bridesmaids, necklaces, bracelets and more! But these pretty pieces can truly be worn for any day of the year! In fact, I wore my Ojai Cage Ring to Midi and Ojai Long Necklace last night to the Fleetwood Mac concert! :)

To help inspire you all, we wanted to showcase how we would style our pieces and drove out to the desert a few weeks ago (and the stunning Korakia Pensione in Palm Springs!) to capture our jewelry – and lots of gorgeous dresses! – with This Modern Romance (photos), Jen Plus Colour (hmu) and L&S Design Co. (flowers). We have been getting such a great response to the collection so far and can’t wait to see our pieces on lots of you lovelies this year…

Rose Gold Pieces from the GWS x Gorjana Collection

We love rose gold and have three pieces in our collection in this pretty color! Our Ojai Cuff, our Sweetheart Midi Ring and our Capri Ring to Wrist Bracelet.
