You know a table linen is special when it’s the beginnings of inspiration for a party! That’s what happened here for designer and Washington DC area cater, Mike Isabella Concepts, who couldn’t wait to design something around the Capri linen from LaTavola. So, the Greek seafood restaurant, Kapnos Taverna, in Arlington, Virginia, became the backdrop for this festive wedding rehearsal dinner. DMV photographer Kurstin Roe captured the works of an amazing local, wedding vendor team who brought to life the idea of celebrating the night before a wedding and sharing with family and friends, toasting, and enjoying family-style the fine dining of Greece!
The seafood platters from Mike Isabella Concepts helped to transport rehearsal dinner guests across the globe, while the orange flowers in silver champagne buckets by Sidra Forman, created a celebratory, night-before-the-wedding feeling in the room. The Dandelion Patch even designed a custom rehearsal dinner invitation suite inspired by the bold pattern and colors of the table linen. And for the favors, which doubled as place cards, they gifted Greek olive oil, of course! Check out all of this rehearsal dinner below and then, be sure to come back a little later this morning because they will totally transform the space at Kapnos Taverna for a pretty pink and navy bridal shower.
Such a festive way to kick off the wedding weekend! We can’t get enough of these bright colors and the amazing looking food. Who’s hungry?! Be sure to come back in a little bit, when they change up the same space and set it up for a navy and pink bridal shower.
