English Garden Rehearsal Dinner

Rehearsal Dinners

It’s always a special treat when we get to share a rehearsal dinner, and this one is quite a beaut. The talented team of Injoy Imagery, Willow Rose Events, and Rose Mint Studio collaborated to put together an intimate yet striking event at The Hartman Gallery for Will and Marie, and filled the evening with lovely little details and a cake that will blow. you. away.

From the event designers, Willow Rose Events: Will and Marie met years ago when Marie travelled to Canada. They met, kept in touch as friends. Years later, Will had by chance visited England and decided they should meet up. And the rest is history… that’s where their love story began. Will went to England to surprise Marie with a proposal. The ring is an antique ring – a combination of both their upbringing. The ring is made out of top part Canadian ring, and bottom English ring.

Their rehearsal was especially intimate and special as that was the first time both families met before their wedding 2 days later. I wanted to style the rehearsal in ways to reflect both their easy going personality, love for vintage and Marie’s country upbringing in England. This inspired me to incorporate lots of soft pastel colours, florals, and ‘wild’ flowers in vintage vases and romantic style with calligraphy menus and place cards.

Also, I wanted to have a moment that Marie will be able to treasure while getting her hair make up done. Since they both had a long distance relationship for so long, I had created a board where Will quoted all the things that he loves Marie, so she can read them while getting ready. It was meant to be a keepsake for her after the rehearsal as well.

Beaver Creek Rehearsal Dinner

Rustic Weddings

Photos by:

While we love being able to see and share wedding days aplenty, it’s so nice when we get to see other elements — such as one of our favorite traditions, the rehearsal dinner. It’s that last breath before the big day you get to spend with your closest family and friends, taking a moment to relax and soak it all in. Before we share Monica and Neil’s ah-mazing wedding from Carl Zoch, we’re so honored to share their early wedding festivities! Recognize that gorgeous bride? Monica is an actress of Lie to Me. You can picture how loud we squealed when she told us she took inspiration from our blog. Full wedding + story coming soon!

1940s Rehearsal Dinner Shoot

Wedding Design

Photos by:

When Erin of EE Photography sent this styled shoot our way, we just knew we needed to jump on it! Every single image just oozes Southern charm and vintage appeal, with dreamy decor, weather, and models running rampant. Looking at these pictures makes me desperately wish I had a wooden boat to crawl into and paddle away… Thank you for sharing, Erin!

From the stylist, Shelbi: We began the styling of this photo shoot with a Pearl Harbor theme in mind and gravitated towards an upscale rustic rehearsal dinner. We wanted to incorporate 1940s fashion with a modern flair and incorporate that design into the tablescape, decor and invitation/sign design as well. The use of a fishing net, boat, poles and anchor helped to set the scene for a romantic dinner by the water. At the same time, we used a crisp white tablecloth and natural colors to create a simple and modern setting as well as hints of gold and silver to add a touch of opulence to an otherwise outdoor setting.

In keeping with the 1940s theme we used typefaces with vintage flair and spiced them up with a unique color palettes. The pop of bright gold was used in the invitation and the signs to unify the event but also to make it stand out. I found the succulents at Calloway’s for $5 a piece in plastic pots and wrapped the pots in rope from Walmart to better fit with the design of the table. These were so easy and inexpensive to make but added such personality to the place settings! I included a step-by-step photo tutorial to show how I wrapped the pots. The hanging clear bottles were empty cream soda bottles used as vases for bunches of baby’s breath.

The benches around the table were handmade by my husband who used stumps as support for two old boards. We also used slices of tree stumps to create a chalkboard menu, direction signs and coasters for the table.

I looked everywhere for the perfect fishing net and found one in the most unexpected place! As my husband was gathering wood for to make the benches he discovered a large net lying in the field behind my aunt and uncle’s house. In the midst of creating a fort, we have speculated that one of my cousins somehow acquired and later abandoned a batting cage net and thus we found our centerpiece!

“Dinner and a Movie” Rehearsal Dinner

Wedding Design

Photos by:

What we love most about this photoshoot brilliantly styled by Erin Taylor of Bustle Events is how incredibly simple it would be to translate it into almost any other wedding celebration element — a laidback reception, a shower for the couple, or the cutest rehearsal dinner. I love the idea of having mason jars full of different toppings for your popcorn, and adore the popcorn boxes!

From the event stylist, Erin: I was recently inspired by images of Tommy Hilfiger’s Fall/Winter 2011 collection which has been described as Bohemian Prep. As I began to play around with how this might translate into wedding design, Rustic Prep came to mind and the ideas began to flow from there.

To keep in line with a preppy color palette, I chose to focus on navy, cream, mustard, apple green, with just a touch of red. Because of my love for old movies, I thought it’d be cool to somehow incorporate it into a shoot. That’s when the concept for a rehearsal dinner themed “Dinner & A Movie” was born.

In my head I knew of the perfect location to pull this off. I wanted the setting to be rustic and a bit unusual. A local dairy provided the perfect backdrop for the evening’s festivities. The idea was the guests would arrive and enjoy a dinner al fresco with the hills of the dairy farm and the sunset in the background. Following dinner, guests were invited to create their own sweet or savory popcorn with toppings that included sea salt, caramel, rosemary infused olive oil, and Parmesan cheese. With popcorn and refreshments in hand they cuddle up with blankets and pillows under the stars to watch an old 8mm movie.

Rustic Prep details of the day included a table built from a vintage door, old cafe chairs upholstered in navy and cream stripes, a popcorn buffet set atop a vintage dresser adorned with bunting and antlers taken straight from the dairy, a plaid invitation and striped menu, placecards printed on kraft tags, and a vintage ladder which held blankets and pillows encouraging guests to cuddle up during the movie. This concept could easily translate into a couple’s shower, next-day brunch, or rehearsal dinner.
