REPORTER: Alyssa Brown

The look of tropical, greenery-filled weddings is a trend we hope never goes away. One of the most visually impressive weddings we’ve spotted with an all-natural surrounding, this wedding in a field full of palm trees and palm fronds in a little Moroccan village is one for the inspiration boards. We’re especially fond of the ceremony setup with all the cool rugs leading the way to a Mecca of palms and cool hanging fixtures. We can practically hear the beats of all those drummers from here.

A venue located just outside Taroudant, Dar Al Hossoun is nestled in an ancient olive grove. A big mix of traditional architecture and modern amenities, this desert oasis with its lush gardens and contemporary structures is an escape we’re adding to our wanderlust list. Life Stories Photography recently sat down with us to give us the skinny on this gorgeous ethnic affair and we couldn’t wait to share their photos and words.

What was your experience at the venue like ?

I'd have to say, it’s one of the best venues I've ever been to. The lodge was designed by a great team of architects and botanists and the garden is an extension of the architecture, every corner of the property is a gem. It also was decorated with great style and a mix of local furniture and minimalistic pieces.

Why did the couple choose this venue?

For the reasons described above and also it fit the 30+ guests that attended their wedding. We all had separate rooms and different spaces to have lunch and dinner together as well as enjoy the swimming pool together.

A little bit about the area - what you did while there?

Taroudant is located between Agadir and Ouarzazate. It’s the very south part of Morocco, it’s a beautiful city with a vibrant market, stunning architecture and surrounded by mountains, canyons, and deserts. At the beginning of May, the weather is stunning and feels like summer, I wouldn’t consider going there in the middle of summer...

Any cool traditions incorporated into the wedding?

The ceremony took place in a palmtree field in a traditional berbere village, 30 min out of town, beautiful! The entrance music was played by a traditional Gnawa orchestra (which is a local music style), local dance (berbers traditions), and Mechoui cooking style.
