It’s not often we share pre-wedding party shoots with you lovely readers so you know this one is going to pretty darned special.

Amanda and Victor, fun and stylish couple, created a rehearsal dinner theme around their shared love of books.

Amanda says:

Victor and I are both avid readers and our first loves were books. Some of our favorite childhood stories were crossovers that we both read when we were younger. We thought the best way to put our stamp on this night was through the books that we’ve loved throughout the years.

In a few of our favorite books, a deer or stag motif is a large part of the storyline. For instance, Harry Potter’s Patronus, the stag in The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe. So we decided to use that as a large design element for the dinner, along with bright pops of sunny yellow to bring the outside in.

I wanted to DIY as much as I could for the rehearsal dinner! I created the staghead that sat on the cake table along with each table name, the heart-shaped confetti, the corn hole boards, & the centerpieces. All in all, it was the perfect evening!

The result? A bright, fresh, and relaxed day for Victor and Amanda to spend time with their family and wedding party. Perfect!
