Moroccan Inspired Elopement Shoot Inside a California Desert Oasis

From photographer Lauren Kinsey

“In the vast, arid land of the California desert lies an oasis, Korakia Pensione. The pilgrimage to this Moroccan inspired villa is a feast for all of the senses, a perfect retreat for an intimate celebration. For this elopement, inspiration was drawn from what comes directly from the earth- sun-bleached, dried materials and a fiery clay evocative of the desert sun that disappears each day behind the mountains that worship it.”

Once Wed was launched in March 2008 to meet a need in the marketplace for an online listing service for second-hand wedding dresses. Within a short time, the company had developed into an online wedding publication and resource to provide newly-engaged brides with inspiration and tools to plan their dream wedding.
