Mariam & Mahmoud
Love in every city
After a change in plans that included a location-switch from Lebanon to Dubai, the team had two months to pull off an overhaul of the Ritz Carlton DIFC. To keep with the couple’s style preferences, décor in the way of furniture and statement pieces was flown in from Lebanon. The UAE’s more strict regulations on building the setting meant that Matisse Events had to choose the right suppliers and coordinate efficiently for a one-day setup. 450 guests came together for a dinner on the terrace with perfectly executed flower centerpieces adorning the tables. After the dinner followed the party in the ballroom, which was transformed into a forest with real trees and a hanging garden descending from the ceiling. A black carpet and terrace furniture added to the romantic, garden feel, creating the illusion of a midnight forest.
