This riad elopement Marrakech was such a special and intimate wedding celebration and such an honor to be able to photograph!
The elopement was held at a private riad where Kevin and Sarah promised each other forever.
The excitement and anticipation they had for their first look is one of our favorites to date! Like out of a scene from a movie, Kevin stood on one end of the balcony, while across from him Sarah opened up one of the floor-length windows.
For their first look, Sarah surprised Kevin with the song from Romeo and Juliet, “Kissing you”. Could there be a more perfect song for a balcony entrance?! And the expression on Kevin’s face when he first saw Sarah was just so full of emotion and awe.
After their first look, they went up to the roof where they exchanged the vows they had each written for each other. Quite honestly, they were some of the most meaningful vows we’ve heard.
With palm trees and quintessential Marrakech rooftops in the background, a soundtrack played of songs that are special to both of them and their relationship. At the end of their ceremony, they jumped over a broom together, which is an African American tradition dating back to the 19th century.
After the elopement we did a romantic photoshoot in their private riad. We love photographing elopements in Morocco, as there are so many beautiful private locations perfect for an intimate ceremony.
It was a tremendous honor to photograph such a significant day in their story together. We loved getting to know them and found them to be the most genuine and kind couple. The love that they have each other has deep roots and is the kind that impacts those around them. Every time we look through their photos we find ourselves just grinning. Capturing love stories has to be one of the best jobs!
