We love getting to be a part of a client's rehearsal dinner as well as the wedding. Haley and Neale's wedding was beautiful and all white so we went bright and colorful for their rehearsal dinner at Maxim's Banquet Room.

We brought in custom table runners and bright lanterns to add more color to the tables. We brought in many other details like the fun fact napkins, the custom seating chart and koozies.
