It's the most cliché thing to tell the bride and groom—enjoy your wedding day and don't worry about the details because it will be over before you know it. But it's true, and it's fantastic advice. You can plan until you're blue in the face beforehand, but when the time comes, the best thing you can do is make sure you're wearing comfortable shoes, let yourself laugh and cry, don't drink too much, and dance up a storm. You'll be sure to have the perfect wedding, regardless of whether it rains, snows, the tent collapses, or you run out of food. Actually, make sure you don't run out of food. That really would be terrible.
In our case, the "wedding" lasted almost a week what with family visits, welcoming people to town, the rehearsal dinner, and a morning brunch. And we enjoyed every minute of it. But despite being a week-long affair, it really did go by like a flash. Luckily we have pictures to help us relive our celebration, time and time again.
Since this is Anne food. after all, it seems fitting to share the most food-centric event with you—the rehearsal dinner we enjoyed with our immediate families, and everyone involved in our ceremony. All photography is credited to the wonderful Dev Khalsa, our wedding photographer, who kindly photographed our rehearsal dinner instead of doing an engagement session because we didn't want any "hipster photos with a horse in a field despite the bride and groom never having sat on a horse in their lives". (Those of you know know the ex-horse-jumper side of me might giggle at the irony.) This blog post would not be possible without her.
And last but definitely not least, thank you to the always wonderful Kellee Havens of The Haven food truck who catered our backyard affair. You can read more about The Haven in my blog post from April 2015 here. Everyone gushed about the delicious fare all night. It was absolutely perfect, very us, and so so tasty. Thank you, Kellee. Without further ado, let the feasting begin!
