The Ultimate Wedding Week continues! Today we're covering the rehearsal dinner!
We were really fortunate to have our rehearsal dinner at Ryan's parents home...which is where he grew up most of his life. I thought it was very sentimental and special for us to bring our families and friends together there. And it turned out to be just perfect!
The setting! The lake is just beyond the trees! It's a gorgeous spot!
We had the rehearsal and dinner outside. I loved the white twinkling lights and simple, yet elegant, table settings.
Me with my dad and maid of honor...oh and my ribbon bouquet from my bridal showers!
All my bridesmaids!
And the handsome groomsmen!
Taking our "rehearsal" vows seriously!
My childhood minister flew up to preside over our wedding...it was such a honor to have him there!
At the end of the night, we played a slideshow of the two of us growing up.
Then Ryan gave his groomsmen their gifts...
Let's just say...they all enjoyed them right away! :)
Overall, it was a great night and we were super ready to get married the next day!
And don't worry...I stayed with all my bridesmaids that night...we watched Father of the Bride and had pillow talk! I wanted to be surprised when I saw my husband at the end of the aisle the next day!
Now it's your turn to link up your rehearsal dinner or inspiration! Head on over to A Charmed Life to join the party!
