Layered Boho Rehearsal Dinner
“When working with our Bride Kelly on her wedding, she wanted to keep it very romantic and vintage themed, but much of her personality and style has a boho flair, something we wanted to show off during the rehearsal dinner. New DTLA warehouse venue HNYPT was the perfect blank canvas to hold their ‘Layered Boho’ themed Dinner.
Kelly is very much a part of the foodie scene here in LA, working for pop-up dining club Dinner Lab – so she already had the perfect caterer picked out: Flatiron, and they decided on a gourmet taco menu, which led us to add some south of the border flair to our boho décor, including the focal point of straw mats we hung from the 20’ trusses.
We wanted a mix of modern furniture with vintage accents, to drive our eclectic boho theme – and found a perfect mix of rentals to fit the bill utilizing the fun hairpin leg tables + modern chairs of Modi Event Supply, along with the vintage rugs and accents from Found Rentals, and vintage tabletop items from Dish Wish.Keeping the flowers loose and wild was a perfect touch from Wild Vase Florals – pops of yellow and red pulled in the color from the rugs below. We added small tschotskes that were personal to the bride and groom – buddhas and other yoga influences for Kelly, film accents for Michael plus souvenirs from their home states of Virginia and Iowa. The long statement table really showed off the different ways to use the space at HNYPT – what a perfect blank space!
Sophia Loves Letters made the perfect poster-sized invites, using just a touch of geometric shapes to play off her beautiful modern calligraphy. The matching name cards were added to incense sticks on each place setting, giving each guest a fun little favor.
We hope you enjoy a little glimpse on how to personalize your rehearsal dinner, and that it makes the perfect opportunity to show off a little more of your personality in a different way that in the wedding.” – Margaux Fraise, Harmony Creative Studio
