Know an engaged couple who loves good food, good beer and a good gathering of family and friends? This rehearsal dinner was created for a couple just like that. I set about capturing the butchering history of Cincinnati (we aren't called 'Porkopolis' for nothing!) with a pig silhouette and chalkboard style text for the details of the rehearsal dinner invitation. Those same red pops of color and pattern were echoed in the event design with red checked linens and khaki colored burlap as you'll see.
Thanks to Christy for being the easiest and sweetest client ever, to Jeff Thomas Catering for their edible tablescape genius and Gina Weathersby for sharing some of her amazing-as-always photos from the event, and The Taft Museum for having such a wonderful space for outdoor dinner parties!
