Stefanie + Leigh's Rehearsal Dinner

After all those vacation posts, it's about time to come back to real life in L.A.  Luckily, it's not so bad here!

Last weekend I not only got to celebrate Murica's birthday, I also got to celebrate the marriage of my friends Stefanie and Leigh!  Stefanie and I met at work, and have been close friends ever since I came down to L.A. as a summer intern.  Leigh and Brian are good friends and surf together every week.  Their wedding was wonderful, warm, and happy :)

I offered to help Stefanie out with planning the rehearsal dinner, since I know how hectic wedding planning can get in the last couple weeks, and I had so much fun putting it together!  Stefanie picked an awesome Italian restaurant, Maximiliano, and we got the whole back patio to ourselves.  I got to take a trip to the L.A. flower market to pick out the flowers, and you guys, that place is amAzing!  Bundles and bundles of the most beautiful flowers everywhere!  And for cheap!  MAN.  I loved it.

I didn't take too many photos because I was busy eating and drinking and laughing, but here are just a few of how everything turned out.

{the newlyweds!}

The paper placemats are from Mark & Graham, and so are the chevron treat bags, which I stuffed with candy (conversation hearts and ring pops!), and the placecards (which came in 6 different colors/patterns) are from a free downloadable I found online.

Nothing beats an outside dinner party 
on a perfectly warm evening in L.A.

Hope you get to enjoy the sun today.
Happy Friday everyone!
