i often purchase dresses on whim, and with no special occasion in mind. this is why rehearsal dinners are especially awesome. not only does the event seem to imply that a group of people practice how to eat food in a dinner setting, but they are THE perfect excuse to dig up a pretty dress. and of course, it's always special to spend time with family and friends eating good food, telling hilarious stories about the couple, and generally sharing the wedding excitement.
it was a lovely evening last thursday with vanessa and tyler, along with their wedding party. after a ceremony run-through at the chapel, we headed to il giardino in vancouver's west end. we had a delightful outdoor patio dinner, complete with many courses of delicious italian food and an abundance of red wine.
