gastropub rehearsal dinner

Foodie culture is on the rise – and with good reason too! Who doesn’t love sharing a fabulous meal and drinks out with their closest friends and family?! Today’s editorial shows a rehearsal dinner concept at Savor, a Dallas Gastropub shot by Emily Ganey during Amanda Watson Workshops. Modern design, elegant touches, and of course food, wine, and revelry are the perfect ingredients for a memorable rehearsal dinner!

From the photographer, Emily Ganey – “The hustle and bustle of the city can be romantic. You stand next to your partner and all of the traffic and chaos of the streets slows down, because the person standing next to you matters the most.

This rehearsal dinner was set right in the middle of Dallas on one of the warmest nights of the summer. The guests received elegant calligraphy invitations in the mail, complete with map! Upon arrival to the dinner, Lindsey Zamora’s style greeted the guests with a sleek, sophisticated design.

The geometric chairs reflected into the glass wall of Savor Gastropub. White plates nested on top of one another, while the gold flatware held the guests’ name cards in place. Poppy Lane Design’s centerpieces sat in organic, white containers that almost looked as if it had been woven together. Small candles warmed the atmosphere.”

“Our bride and groom, Jasmine and Oscar were simply adorable together. Jasmine wore a crochet dress from BHLDN and let her natural beauty shine through. Oscar was fitted in a suit from The Black Tux.

Imagine: Celebrating with their close friends and family as the perfect way to kick off a wedding weekend!”
