From Amy Nicole Photography... Floral patterns have become a trend that is incorporated into more and more elements of weddings and wedding related events. With a bright, fun color palette, we knew that florals would be a main focus for this rehearsal dinner inspiration, but we wanted to incorporate them in a way that we haven’t seen before without being overly feminine. That’s when the floral napkins from Fine Pressed Linens became a must-use for this shoot. Mixing florals with other patterns provides such a unique design element to events, and with pinstripes coming back, we knew having a pinstripe runner would provide a subtle texture and mixture to the design. Bloom Charlottesville incorporated all the colors in the palette through the mixture of florals paired with simple white vases. The glassware and china from Festive Fare provided a modern touch to the tablescape with the classic calligraphy on the name cards from Bluestocking Calligraphy. We wanted to provide a relaxing atmosphere for the rehearsal dinner by using the bamboo chairs paired with family style seating at a farm table.

Located on the downtown mall, Old Metropolitan Hall was the perfect venue to show guests a peak into life in Charlottesville, VA. The tone of the weekend was set with the adorable welcome bags from The Detail Darling filled with local goodies and necessities. With the signature drink from Brasserie Salon, guests were reminded of the bright, colorful palette throughout the evening. Along with the signature drink, the bright colored popsicles from King of Pops were the perfect way to incorporate the summer theme to the rehearsal dinner. The classic gold and rose gold accessories from Kendra Scott paired perfectly with the off the shoulder, lace detailed “Oliver Dress” from Camilyn Beth. The suit jacket from Beecroft and Bull (a Virginia retailer) blended with the warm tones of the Bride’s accessories.
