This resort would be impossible to ignore anywhere in the world, but the fact that it’s tucked into the wilderness in Morocco, along the southern road to Ouarzazate (the gateway to the Sahara Desert), makes it shine brighter than all of Rihanna’s diamonds. If ever there were a hotel to compare to a shiny, new gemstone, this is it.

 

 

Incredible honeymoon planner, Katie of Ever After Honeymoons planned a group getaway and girls trip for a Moroccan night adventure through Marrakech. The crew of creatives included correspondents Leila Brewster Elysium Video Productions and The Special Day rwho were the lucky ducks that got to visit Amanjena. Leila shares the scoop from Morocco along with some magazine-worthy photography of the property. Leila is an avid traveler and a truly talented photographer,

When your career gives you insider access to some of the most amazing venues around the world, how do you ever make a decision on where to host your own wedding? You’re probably thinking I could have WAY worse problems. You would be right. But in order to truly tell my tale, my trek through the wilds of wedding planning and perfect party locations, we need to get personal. 

 

 

The Story

Because picking the venue for your wedding is extremely personal.

And the second time, you won’t be there.” Here at The Venue Report, we have a beautiful, hand-picked and curated collection of the most amazing venue spaces from around the world.

Four Secret Summer Cocktail Recipes to Serve at a Party 

The life of a drinker is a good one. It’s a collection of sunset poetry chats on the porch, dimly lit conversations in a dive, and rollicking laughter in a room full of rosy-cheeked friends and family. That’s why culinary storytellers Life and Thyme and mixology geniuses Cocktail Academy just joined forces to launch a new publication called In Good Spirits. It's their wonderful testament to America’s real pastime (which you can pretty much do at all the other “pastimes’ anyway). So in honor of the stylish cocktail culture publication, we here at The Venue Report asked if we could have a few cool summer drinks—and, boy, did they come through.

While The Venue Report’s always interested in the dives, drinks, snacks, facts, and tips of any locale, Nashville in particular was on our radar for some major investigating.

 

 

The state capital, long ago donned “Music City,” kicks up its heels on the riverbank with a good spirit of nightlife. Curious to know more, we decided to send some of the best explorers we know to the hot spots and cool spaces out there on the Cumberland.

 

 

So when the wandering band of designers, photographers, and musicians, known by their reborn name of Get Lost With Us, agreed to the adventure, we were so excited. The crew is made up of designer Tori from Sitting in a Tree Design,

It’s one of the chicest evolution’s made by the hands of man, somewhere out in the desert. Once a mid-century modern Westward Ho with a humdrum Denny’s, the structure is now the beloved bohemian paradise that is the Ace Hotel in Palm Springs.

 

 

When Sarah Gallagher, the Studio Manager of Readyluck turned 30, she wanted to barrel into her new era of life as gleefully spirited as she was upon entering her 20s. This meant inviting 20 of her closest friends for a long weekend of sunbathing, cocktail-downing, and desert partying. Among those friends, photographer Lindsay Hite stood ready to capture the weekend.

 

 

King’s Highway, the beloved restaurant of the Ace, is driven by Jud Mongell and Ken Addington, the team behind Brooklyn’s renowned Five Leaves.
