Turkish Inspired Wedding | Clifton Inn

DSC_7504We wanted to create a Turkish Inspired wedding, opulent and exotic with both Asian and European elements mixed, like a ride on the Orient Express originating in Paris with her intricate gown and ending in Istanbul with turkish delights, pomegranates, ornate gold jewelry, and a Turkish patterned tablescape.

Valentino, Givenchy, Etro, and Gucci are all influenced by Turkish and Islamic patterns and flowing silhouettes this season,
“rhythmic scrolls and interlacing acanthus-like vines”
“Geometric ornamentation had its roots in the Greek and Roman era, but reached its pinnacle in the Islamic Golden Age,
when artists, influenced by mathematicians, astronomers, and scientists of the time, elaborated on the motifs to stress unity and order.
Circles represented the infinity of Allah and the square the four elements of air, fire, water and earth.”
 Charlotte Di Carcaci, NY Times Fashion
