We are all kinds of in love with the amazing double feature we have lined up for today, and you’re about to see exactly why! AK + Dan hosted the wedding weekend to end all wedding weekends, beginning with a picture-perfect rehearsal dinner which took place under two giant tipis (from Exchange Vintage Rentals) on their family lakeside property. Indulge us for a second and imagine all the best bohemian accents, succulents + giant cacti in lieu of florals, and macrame, macrame, macrame for days! Those details pretty much sum up this super gorge event, which is perfect inspiration for a wedding, rehearsal or any fun, stylish soiree.
On their dinner party – a design collab between the two of them and HotHouse Design Studio– AK + Dan say, We wanted the rehearsal dinner to be more intimate since it was our closest friends and family. This was an opportunity to reveal our truest selves. We also felt this was the perfect time to let our love for cactuses run the show. The eclectic bohemian decor made this whole evening so cozy and full of love. We had so many friends come up to us and say this is you guys as a party. So, I suppose that we succeeded in visually representing ourselves!
We love! Big thanks to W&E Photographie for sharing their stunning captures with us!
YES to this hashtag marquee! Too fun.
Who wouldn’t love a seat at this beyond stunning table?! The hanging planters and table centerpieces were designed by Mandy at HotHouse Design Studio. Love, love.
A super fun detail AK + Dan chose to include? Each table was marked by the photo of a famous couple! We’re pinning this genius idea for our next dinner party…
