There are so many details that go into the actual wedding day that most forget about capturing the events leading up to the wedding. The rehearsal dinner is usually when tearful speeches are made and sweet stories are told. It’s also when you gather with your closest family and friends, most of whom you may not have seen in a long time. If you’re still in the planning stages and need some inspiration for your Rehearsal dinner, you’re in the right place!
Val and Will’s summer rehearsal dinner at Cafe 43 was stunning. Guests were greeted with champagne while a mariachi band played as they entered the room. There were so many special details including family wedding heirlooms, custom monogrammed wine bottles, and a heartfelt slideshow that Will’s mom put together. After a delicious dinner (complete with custom Texas cookies!), Val and Will were showered with kind words from family and friends. It’s so obvious how much this couple is loved and I loved hearing all of the sweet stories about them. One of my favorite moments was taking a big group photo of everyone together. All of the guests held white hearts and Val and Will stood out with their two red hearts. Such a fun group!
A huge shoutout to Casie from Thistle and Wynd productions for putting together this amazing event. Val and Will’s summer rehearsal dinner at Cafe 43 was a night to remember!
