Inspired by Middle Eastern Desert Wedding Details

Being half Lebanese, I always have a place in my heart for middle eastern inspired decor. Cortnie from Canvas & Canopy traveled to Egypt and Jordan last year, and came back so inspired by the richness of the culture. When we found out Rue Mag’s summer issue was inspired by travel, we just knew this concept would be the perfect fit! Papyrus, reeds, bright colors, spices and a CAMEL named Caleb… this shoot blew me away with Middle Eastern desert wedding details! We brought on Momental Designs to hand paint all the stationery on papyrus and La Partie to create the gorgeous floral displays. Everyone involved did such an amazing job bringing it to life, and of course Jose Villa captured it all perfectly!

    Did you create this amazing site yourself? Please reply back as I’m wanting
    to create my own personal website and would love to find
    out where you got this from or what the theme is called. Cheers!
