Romantic Moroccan Wedding Inspiration

moroccan wedding inspiration

Today’s fun styled shoot was inspired by the stunning desert oasis scenes from Morocco. A swoon worthy notion, don’t you think?! The serene environment created by Carly Rae Weddings + Primary Petals provided a break from the commonly bright array of colors seen in Morocco and took on a  lovely, non-traditional palette of navy, amber, cream, light blues and mixed metallics. Such a pretty color story for a late summer celebration! And if you’re wondering about this unreal location that is so reminiscent of the  Sahara desert, it’s the Glamis Sand Dunes in El Centro, California. Pretty amazing, right? We’re so glad that Meghan Kay Sadler was able to beautifully capture this unique editorial so we could share it with you all today!
