Regardless of the region, the romance of Italy continues to entice couples from all over the world.

Safae El Hakyam from Maev, Morocco: Marrakech because it has an oriental and modern touch for a wedding. Morocco is a country with bright color palettes and the feeling of being in part of an Arabian Nights story, this is a beautiful country to have your wedding nuptials.
