darien, connecticut

We can think of two words that adequately describe how spectacular Ali and Max’s barbecue rehearsal dinner was: bacon centerpieces.  Having the opportunity to help Ali and Max plan their rehearsal dinner was such a treat. We love to step away from the frills and formalities of planning a wedding to work on a smaller, more intimate event. This gives us the opportunity to learn their stories and translate them into details at a special dinner for their closest family members and friends. For Ali and Max this meant a laid back bbq at ther childhood home in Darien, CT, inspired by the time they spent living in Tennessee. Ali and Max picked some of their favorite Southern elements to share with their guests: a hay bale lounge, bourbon bar stocked with the groom’s favorite spirits, and buckets and buckets of bacon for guests to enjoy.
