Where oh where in the world to elope? Once you decide to get away, the possibilities are endless! Unless, of course…a ticket across the world isn’t in the budget. But wait! If the magical streets of Morocco are calling your name, we’ve got great news: this inspired elopement is all about transporting you there, to that vibrant feast for the eyes! Maddox & Rose began with a blank canvas (in Louisville, Kentucky—you’d never guess it!) and designed an experience akin to the traditional Moroccan street market. One stand-out detail from the day? The distinct use of light!
The constantly changing light added an extremely unique element to our shoot. The light beaming through the single wall of industrial windows added an aura of mystery to many of the details, with its harsh direct light and looming shadows. Harsh light is often avoided by many photographers, but Susan of Love Hunters embraced the light to highlight and frame the extraordinary details of the hidden market.
Ready to head with us to Morocco? Don’t worry—it’s not too far away!
We begin with a beautiful acrylic invitation suite by Riley & Ko, paired with leather accents fo a touch of modern influence.
The Bride + The Market
SO pretty! Can this be our home??
The Moroccan-Inspired Ceremony Backdrop
The bride + groom met against a teal wall adorned with hand-woven baskets—love that pop of color!
Are you loving the groom’s style? He wore a neck scarf from Thistle and Thread Design for an old-world feel.
The simple-yet-stunning florals from State & Arrow Design Co brought a breath of life into the dreamy space.
The Moroccan Market Transformation
How amazing is this?!
From woven baskets…
…to street food!
Are you LOVING the light here? The drama is so gorgeous!
The bride + groom (Courtney + Jalen, a real couple!) lounged among ornate rugs + furniture provided by Queen City Vignette, genuine leather goods from Clayton and Crume and decorative accents from Rabbit Heart. The abundance of patterns + textures created a lively backdrop—almost as if they were strolling through the local shops!
It’s not a trip to the Moroccan markets without mint tea!
Perfectly dreamy! Want more? Woodland & Ivory all the beautiful details on film:
