Moodboard Monday // Cold Tangerines

Today's moodboard is inspired by our current adventures in Morocco. We are making our way from the Atlas Mountains to Tangier (by way of Marrakesh, Oulidia, and Rabat) for a destination wedding that we are so excited about! It is only our third day here in Morocco and the rich colors of this country are already inspiring us.

“I want a life that sizzles and pops and makes me laugh out loud. And I don't want to get to the end, or to tomorrow, even, and realize that my life is a collection of meetings and pop cans and errands and receipts and dirty dishes. I want to eat cold tangerines and sing out loud in the car with the windows open and wear pink shoes and stay up all night laughing and paint my walls the exact color of the sky right now. I want to sleep hard on clean white sheets and throw parties and eat ripe tomatoes and read books so good they make me jump up and down, and I want my everyday to make God's belly laugh, glad that he gave life to someone who loves the gift.”

Happy Monday!

Travel Journal // Morocco Bound

This summer is chalk-full of fun and exciting adventures, but one that we're most excited about is a destination wedding in Morocco! Juliet Totten will be with us to insure that the flowers are stunning and Nick Radford will be snapping all the pretty pics, which we'll share with you ASAP.


In preparation for the wedding we'll be taking a week to travel from Marrakesh up the coast to Tangier, sourcing beautiful and unique decor items along the way.  Max Lawrence, owner of Lawrence of Morocco, has prepared an amazing itinerary for us that begins this Friday! Here are the fantastic places we'll be staying along the way.


Maroc Lodge.jpg

Our travels begin in the Atlas Mountains at this luxurious mountain retreat adjacent to the small town of Amizmiz. Maroc Lodge is located 35 miles south of Marrakesh and will be the perfect place to unwind and get our creative juices flowing.


Villa des Oranger

We'll be doing most of our sourcing for the wedding in Marrakesh and what better way to end our busy days than hanging out by the pool at Villa des Oranger. It's also slated to be 104 degrees while we're there (ah!) so the pool is key!


La Sultana.jpg

After the heat and hustle and bustle of Marrakesh we head to the beautiful coastal town of Oulidia where we'll stay at the stunning La Sultana.


Riad Kalaa.jpg

Our journey continues in Rabat, the capital of Morocco, at the beautiful Riad Kalaa.


El Minzah Hotel.jpg

We'll spend the wedding week at El Minzah Hotel in Tangier which is just minutes from the villa where the wedding will take place.

We are beyond excited for our trip and can't wait to share pictures and stories from our travels!
