Our Rehearsal Dinner in Canmore, Canada

I meant to have this post up on Wedding Wednesday, but life happened and I have been traveling like crazy!

I wanted to share this collection of photos with you from my rehearsal dinner. Make sure to scroll to the end! I share my favorite dresses to wear to rehearsal dinner (including the one I wore that is almost sold out!)!

Our Rehearsal Dinner in Canmore, Canada

Before we get started, here are a couple of people you should know about:

Adria Lea Photography– My wedding photographer (also my sister) who is based out of Dallas, TX. She took all of these photos. If you are in the DFW area or if you are having a destination wedding CONTACT HER ASAP! Her work is definitely the best I have ever seen!!!

Wild Rose Events– This was the florist – also based out of Dallas- that I brought with me to Canada. My sister works weddings with her all of the time and told me I wouldn’t regret bringing her- and I definitely don’t! Funny story… I ordered some birch vases for the rehearsal dinner that didn’t end up arriving in time, so Domonie (the florist) had the videographer collect a bunch of branches and she put these arrangements together within a day!!! How crazy is that! I cannot wait to show you all of the gorgeous work she did for my wedding. If you are in need of a florist in DFW area or a if you are having a destination wedding, contact her asap!!

Linens– AM Linen Rentals. We got these out of Dallas as well and I actually packed them and brought them with us. We teamed up and steamed them at the venue. It ended up saving us tonnnnns of money in shipping! If you are having a destination wedding I highly recommend packing your linens with you. Use AM Linen Rentals for great linens and tons of choices! Troy’s favorite color is purple (TCU alumni), hence the purple flowers and linens!

Ashley Lewkowicz– My wedding planner based in Canmore, Canada who planned most of this for us. She recommend this amazing venue.

Venue- Cross Zee Ranch. We wanted to have a low key rehearsal dinner since we knew the wedding reception would be pretty formal. We decided on a plated four course meal for the wedding, so we loved the idea of a help yourself dinner out at a ranch for the rehearsal. The venue was perfect. It was in a donut at a horse ranch and it had so much charm and all of the employees were so amazing to work with. The food was AMAZING and we hired a one man band to sing and play while we ate. I would highly recommend having your rehearsal dinner at Cross Zee if you decide to have your wedding in Banff or Canmore.

Can you believe she put this together last minute because the vases I ordered didn’t come in? She is so extremely talented!!

Here are my favorite rehearsal dinner dresses right now! Unfortunately the one I wore is almost sold out, but here are some great options for you:

If you guys are trying to figure out where to have your wedding I HIGHLY suggest Canmore, Canada. It was so stunning and we just can’t stop talking about it. The surroundings are so surreal and it is something you and your guests will truly never forget. If you decide to have your wedding in Banff, still consider having your rehearsal dinner in Canmore, Canada.
