Fahd & Sophia
For the wedding of Sophia & Fahd, we were asked to combine Moroccan’s time honored traditions with the innovation of a modern wedding. On a cool night in December, for 300 guests, we knew the perfect venue choice would be the old magic factory Dar Soukar, in Marrakech, owned by our favorite chef and gourmet caterer, Jean Pierre Lentini and he did not disappoint!
From our first site visit with the couple through nine months of planning, we were tasked with creating a memorable day for the happy couple. Paying tribute to the magical history of the venue, we created an illusion of light with over 10,000 candles combined with a rain forest effect and mirrored table tops to complete the look. Generous displays of flowers enhanced candles and mirror effects leaving guests bedazzled by the mystical feel of the room.
For the traditional side of the wedding, our bride arrived accompanied by an 18-piece orchestra to serenade guests over an authentic Moroccan 5-course dinner.
For the modern side, the beautiful bride sang a duet with famed tenor Jean luc Viala on VIVO PER LEI and the groom returned the favor by singing back to his bride the Frank Sinatra classic “My Way”.
