Meet Us in Marrakesh: A Moroccan-Inspired Lounge
Our travel-themed Best of 2017 gala at downtown Los Angele's historic Vibiana is overflowing with beautiful design and inspiration. California Wedding Day hosted more than 500 of Southern California's top wedding industry professionals to celebrate the finalists for Best of 2017--and announce the winners. Under the helm of our fearless captains, Travis McBurney of True Colors Events and Lisa Khan of Lisa Khan Events, we joined forces with a talented team of vendors to create an around-the-world experience from London to Morroco to the Amalfi Coast.
And we're off to Marrakesh! Events By Robin, Eddie Zaratsian Lifestyles and Design and Tic-Tock Couture created a visual journey of colors, textures, and patterns through two beautiful vignettes representing the beautiful and colorful country of Morocco. From the crisp white and gold lounge to a brightly hued and decadent spot, guests were able to kick back and converse among the plush settees. Chef/Owner Neal Fraser nailed the culinary menu with couscous, golden raisins and almonds, lamb tagine with oranges and apricots, chicken Bastilla and green chickpea and tomato salad while guests sipped on the specialty cocktail, the Tangier Julep boasting bourbon, lime, mint tea, and rose water.
And be sure to check out all the details from our Best of 2017 celebration and visit the other beautiful spaces designed by Kristeen Labrot Events and Lotus & Lily Floral and Event Design (London) and Marisa Nicole Events and The Little Branch (Amalfi Coast).
