Moraccan style reception: A magical carpet ride

This morning I received a email from the lovely Maryam from MyMarrakech. Maryam is in Essouira, a small white-washed chilled out market town on Morocco's West coast. She has limited web access; however she wanted me to share this comment:

Sarah,
I can't post comments with my little machine but I checked out your post. Could you post the comment below for me?

What a beautiful post! This is great inspiration for me, even living here in Marrakech. I like your fresh and modern interpretation. This is just begging for some great Moroccan food and perhaps a nice mint cocktail for guests! Sarah, I am in Essouira but will try to remember to link your entry with my next blog post. Please remind me if I some how forget.

Thanks for the lovely post!

Cheers,
Maryam

The thought of Maryam in Morocco visiting the wonderful art galleries, shopping the many artisan craft stalls in the winding alleyways (the woodwork in Essaouira is famous as being one of the oldest artistic forms that has thrived in the town) and eating the delicious cuisine made me think about a Moraccan style wedding reception.

Wouldn't it be magical if you could sweep your guests off their feet with this rich, exotic reception that celebrates Moroccan style!

Sarah, this is so incredibly beautiful. I've been planning a wite-on-white wedding but all this spectacular colour has made me look at things differently. Fortunately, there is enough time to make some changes. Thank you!

So beautiful! It is going to be so much fun when my daughters get married! I hope they let me help. But that is a looongg ways away.

These images have inspired me as well and my wedding will be infused with colors.

Nora, I love the way Danielle brought in color to her wedding and reception - http://ohhappyblog.blogspot.com/2007/08/real-wedding.html
Check it out as it's done so sophisticated and modern.

Katie, I'm sure your daughters will let you help in the planning of their wedding. As I prepare for my own nuptials I know I could never do it without my Mother's help!

Hadassah, you inspire me. I've looked at the pics from your trip to China and it looks as if you had a great time. I love to travel and I love learning about different cultures. I have to admit, I'm a foodie and I especially love exploring different cuisine.
