Anne & Dan's Rehearsal Dinner

We had two big weddings in April at Big Events that kept us all super busy...and up first was the wedding of Anne Hancock and Dan Toomey. We had such a good time with this couple and their families from start to finish, and not only did we have the opportunity to design and plan their wedding, but we also did their adorable rehearsal dinner at Puckett's Grocery in Franklin the night before. We love this venue, so we really wanted to play off its authentic Southern charm with subtle floral arrangements and decor. To start with, one of Anne's friends (a talented friend!) designed the invitation and signage:

Each table had a name and a unique sign with seating assignment to go along:

Photography by Michael Howard, and he (as usual) did a fantastic job of capturing this great space:

Floral arrangements included groupings of red roses, yellow ranunculus, and hydrangeas in vintage Coca-Cola bottles, placed on tablecloths with a red and white ticking stripe:

Anne has collected a TON of great photos through the years, and it was important to her that we share them in some each arrangement contained a grouping of those photographs framed in cream burlap:

On the stage, we set up a pair of suitcases with more pictures and cards that read "Happiness is..." that each guest filled out with their own handwritten message to the bride and groom. A card displayed on the table was printed with Anne and Dan's favorite quote: " Treasure every moment you have, and remember that time waits for no one. Happiness is a journey, not a destination." (Father Alfred D'Souza)
