Elizabeth & Jason's Rehearsal Dinner

You met EQ and Jason here and here.  I have been waiting for their wedding for a long time, so I know Elizabeth was ready for the BIG weekend, and yes it was a weekend affair (sidenote, if you're new to the blog and missed their engagement pictures and bridal pictures, EQ = Elizabeth).

Location: Lake Eden and Events, Black Mountain, NC
Dress: her mother's dress! Creatively transformed by Just Sew by Renee
Bridesmaids: LulaKate
Wedding Planner: Brittany Ghio from Verge Events

This post is just the Rehearsal Dinner.  There are so many images to share with you that I thought I would split it into 2 posts.  Everything was held at the beautiful Lake Eden and Events.  The wedding party even stayed on the property in multiple cabins.

The Rehearsal Dinner was held at The Barns venue on the property.  I love an old building with lots of character!  Throughout the entire weekend, Elizabeth had every detail planned!

Elizabeth was so creative in her decorating of the Rehearsal Dinner.  A theme that carried throughout their wedding was travel due to the fact that the majority of their dating relationship was  a long distance relationship.  The floral center pieces at the tables were sitting atop a slice of wood (that doesn't really do it justice, see picture below) and then maps of the different places that held a special meaning to EQ and Jason were placed under the wood.  I can't even begin to describe the place card settings, so much thought went into it.  The place cards were displayed on the spokes of bicycles, such a great idea!  The humungous red velvet cake was made to look like a vintage suitcase.  The pops of blue and green made everything cheerful!

Here are some snapshots of the evening, starting with the bride and groom!

Here's a guest with their seriously detailed and cute place card!
