Wedding Ideas: Cultural Traditions

Curated Chic Kansas Wedding at Life’s Finer Moments

February 18, 2018 | juliette

By combining their love of nature, a minimalist-meets-boho style, and elements of their Hispanic heritage, Jenny and Eddie created a truly memorable wedding at Life’s Finer Moments lodge. They wanted their wedding to highlight the natural beauty of Kansas for their out-of-town guests, and we think they nailed it by only using three antique doors for their ceremony backdrop and letting the open pasture speak for itself. For the reception, they focused on simple boho details borrowed […]

Their childhood Farsi teacher officiated the ceremony! Because […]

Aayah and Amr’s Egyptian wedding at La Maison Bleue El Gouna was a true vision of luxurious elegance! With the help of their planner, the couple dreamed up a theme of Ethereal Decadence and saw it come to life with larger-than-life bird cages on the beach, a “dirty pastel” color palette (think: muted oranges, deep pinks, and rich ivories), and traditional Egyptian entertainment like a belly dancer and a Zaffa band. Dani Ford Photography captured every detail of this wedding wonderfully, including […]
