Traditional jewish wedding in the characteristic setting of Marrakech
Rivki and Shmuel are two American Jewish spouses who decided to get married during wonderful days in Marrakech, where the Jewish culture of the guests with their traditions blended with the Moroccan costumes and landscape.
Rivki chose two outfits for her day: the evening gown and first first look at the Royal Mansour, where they both got ready before the ceremony in their beautiful riads, she wore a Karen Sabag, a very distinctive white dress with trim on the bodice, and magnificent Rene Caovilla shoes. While, for the first look at the Selman Marrakech, where the ceremony and dinner were held, she chose another beautiful white Karen Sabag gown with a very long veil engraved with the names of Shmuel's beloved children.
Shmuel, with two dresses Tom Ford and Brioni, chose the dark for the first look and for the evening, white for the ceremony. Both outfits accompanied by elegant Christian louboutin shoes.
After the portraits in Selman Marrakech together with his loved ones, Shmuel signed the traditional Ketubah, surrounded by family and close friends: this is how Morocco started to embrace the Jewish culture.
Refael Design's magnificent arrangements made the ceremony unique: an incredible arch of flowers above the Chuppah, where the bride and groom exchanged rings followed by the traditional breaking of the chalice. Dinner began with the typical hora dance and continued with the joy and fun of the guests throughout the rest of the evening.
The wonderful days that followed took place in the splendid setting of the Royal Mansour, where the two cultures found points of encounter over and over again, until the final party with the characteristic Moroccan henna tattoo ceremony.
