The Rehearsal

December 10, 2010  |  In Her Shoes

I always tell my brides, the rehearsal is one of the most special times you’ll experience. Very rarely will you have all the people that most important to you in one room. It was an unforgettable night and I will remember every sweet word our family and friends said.

City Club’s Restaurant 1100 was the site of our rehearsal dinner. It was absolutely perfect. They take care of so much. When my mother-in-law asked what I’d want as far as decor, I told her it needed nothing and to not stress about it. It would be beautiful. And it was!! Brides, if you are looking for a site to have your rehearsal dinner or wedding (for under 125) I highly recommend the Restaurant 1100. Hannah Trahan, the events director, (who you’ll hear more about next week) does such an amazing job making things simple for brides.

And the photos were shot by office mate Jason Cohen. So thankful for his capturing so many memories throughout this season, like the proposal, engagements, wedding and even finding my wedding shoes! You will hear lots more on Jason too next week!

I’m pretty sure I made a joke because that’s what I usually do when I’m uncomfortable. 

On to dinner!

Tyler’s grandfather said the blessing…

The meal of course had a few Southern favorites. Corn macque choux, bread pudding and Community Coffee.

I LOVED the black and white striped chairs. 

On to the toasts!

Natalie gave a great toast that had us laughing…

and crying…

Tyler’s little brother gave a touching toasts too. I’m so proud of both of them!

Tyler thanked everyone…

Then we passed out gifts for the bridal party.

First look at some of our Southern Life Collection!

The night was such a blessing! We are so thankful for the people that surround us. Brides, this is one part of the “wedding” that you should leave completely up to someone else. You have the wedding to worry about. Leave room to enjoy the evening. You won’t want to miss it!

Biggest blessing?? We both have wonderful parents that love us so much! Thanks y’all! We love you!
