Kat + Zak's Southwest Styled Rehearsal Dinner

Friday, March 8, 2019 No comments

Planning, Design and Coordination by Valarie Falvey of Kirkbrides

Floral Décor: Twig Floral
Linens: L’nique
Photography: Mallory + Justin
Stationery: Lovely Somethings

This event was such a fun one to work on!  I worked with the mother of the groom, Deb, who wanted to create a special and fun evening for her son on the eve of his wedding to Kat!  One of the other Kirkbrides planners, Katie, was handling the coordination of their wedding day at Spice Acres,  so I took on the planning of the dinner since the setup would happen simultaneously while Katie was managing their ceremony rehearsal.

We started with one inspiration picture and elaborated from there with Twig Floral creating these beautiful floral arrangements and Lovely Somethings really putting the finishing touches on with this custom stationery.  The dinner included beautiful toasts and an ice cream sundae bar.  Nuevo Cleveland is such a fun and scenic venue to invite your in-town and out of town guests to experience for a celebratory life event such as a rehearsal dinner.  It was such a pleasure working with Deb and this entire family and the Kirkbrides team was so happy to be on board for all of their special events!!
