And speaking of the fabulousness that is Laura Hooper…apparently, good taste runs in the family. Since we are celebrating Laura’s soon-to-be nuptials, we thought we’d also share with you this little shindig that Laura and Beth Helmstetter put together for her sister’s rehearsal dinner. It’s gorgeousness defined and yet another example of just how talented these two ladies are. Click here to see even more!

This beautiful rehearsal dinner, designed by Beth Helmstetter, took place in the Wine Cellar at Westlake Village Inn in Southern California. Beth kept the decor simple playing off the natural beauty of the room using tons of candles to give the room a beautifully soft glow. Florals in shades of blush pink and ivory from Holly Flora added to the the look, and rattan chargers and a simple champagne linen completed the room. The cellar had enclaves that opened onto the lake where Beth left seating for guests to enjoy the view.

The printed materials included custom invitations, individual place cards with various icons representing the dinner entree options, and a hand painted menu board to be displayed on the stone mantle in the cellar.

The groom’s family even shipped in pralines in the shape of Texas (his home state) as a favor for each guest! All of the out-of-towners also received a tote bag featuring a custom map created for the couple’s wedding invitation suite.
