We absolutely love when we get invited to all the fun pre-wedding parties, it gives us an excuse to get dressed up and hang out with our couples … and it’s also a fantastic opportunity for us to get to know their friends and family! Shannon + Steve’s rehearsal dinner at Eight4Nine in Palm Springs was no exception – it was a beautiful testimony to the love the people in their lives have for the both of them. The food was absolutely amazing (no surprise there, Eight4Nine is awesome), and the atmosphere was only a sneak peek into what would follow the next day.
Our favorite part of the evening were the open mic speeches, where anyone could take center stage to toast to the soon to be Mr + Mrs, and so many people did – they told funny stories, heartwarming stories, offered advice and gave us a bigger picture of just how rad Shannon + Steve really are. We already loved them just from spending the last year in the wedding planning process, but, seeing how beloved they are made us feel even more special, to have been invited into their world and welcomed with open arms.
Special thanks to the vendors who did an amazing job for Shannon + Steve’s wonderful rehearsal dinner!
