Atva & Samir | Destination Wedding in Ourika Morocco

6/12/2017

Witnessing an epic romance: it’s what it felt like photographing Atva & Samir. A love só strong it conquers everything. A love not without hurdles and differences, but so much stronger because of it. A love that inspirers and touches everyone around it. The kind of love you read about or watch in movies…

Atva & Samir said yes in front of their dear friends and family: ‘yes’ to each other ánd to new adventures together. And they did at the most amazing place to do so: Kasbah Bab Ourika in Morocco. Imagine driving just 30 minutes from the magical but busy city of Marrakech and arriving at a beautiful, tranquil place like this, surrounded by the Atlas mountains. My heart fills with butterflies just thinking about it.

Add up some awesome(!) vendors, the warmth of the sun in November and the best moroccan tajines – sounds like a dream right? It definitely felt like one! Be sure to watch the amazing video by the Dreamers as well!

 

Samir:

“Seeing the beautiful pictures of our own story like this: I think it’s pretty amazing and I can’t wait to tell our children and grandchildren one day about it.”

Atva:

‘Samir, Thank you for being the man of my life, giving me the day of my dreams in the country of my heart. I love you, our story and our journey and I’ll keep trying my hardest to keep it going.
