Modern Moroccan inspired wedding ideas at Korakia Pensione
When your venue is as iconic as Korakia Pensione, you’re tasked with dreaming up a design that shows your style in a way that complements it, yet stands out as different and new. It’s quite the task! But as Carrie Moe of Type A Society and photographer Ellie Koleen prove, it’s all about landing on the right concept. Korakia is full of gorgeous, natural Moroccan vibes, so the team sought to represent that in a series of modern bridal gowns from LOHO Bride and a show-stopping floral headpiece by Of The Flowers. Find it all below!
Fun bridal shoe alert!
Carrie says, For the Toni Maticevski gown, we brought the gown to the straight lines and geometric shapes of the staircase there and loved how it created a visual pop. With its one shoulder sleeve and fun ruffle on the side, the gown paired nicely with our groom’s black suit from H&M. Her fun earrings from Lili Claspe added the final touch of gold.
These words inspired Carrie when dreaming up this shoot…
And still, after all this time,
The sun never says to the earth,
“You owe Me.”
Look what happens with
A love like that,
It lights the Whole Sky.
In contrast to the white walls and dress, the tablescape was inspired by the rust undertones of the venue while maintaining a minimalist look.

We asked floral artist Felisa from Of The Flowers to create a sun goddess headpiece for us and she created this masterpiece. After seeing how much visual space the amazing headpiece took up, we knew the Sophie Et Voila Gown with its queenly sleeves would match perfectly. The gown’s simple bodice with no lace or beading doesn’t overpower the headpiece but creates a wonderful powerhouse duo combination with the headpiece.
So lovely to see all the beautiful nooks Korakia has to offer.
Carrie styled up a third look featuring a light and airy gown from Israeli designer Eisen Stein Bridal. Find it in our gallery below!
