rehearsal dinner | 7.19

Tuesday, August 06, 2013

In order to kick off our wedding weekend festivities properly, we were fortunate enough to have two sets of parents who set us up for beautiful events all week and weekend.  Nick and I had separated from one another the Friday before the wedding to be with our respective families and tie up all loose ends.  It was hard to be apart as we prepared for such an exciting venture, but it made our reunion that much sweeter.  

The Friday before the wedding we met up with our wedding party at St. Vitus Catholic Church in New Castle to practice the comings and goings of our ceremony.  It was a little overwhelming having it set in, but I was excited nonetheless.  Afterwards we headed to the real kick-off party; Nick's parents put together a gorgeous rehearsal dinner at Avalon Golf & Country Club.  We had such a beautiful night with his family and mine and were so happy to be surrounded by such love and support.

The following photos are all courtesy of Blythe K Photography and perfectly capture our fun evening.
