Odessa & Tony's Rehearsal Dinner

Last week before Tony and Odessa's wedding we had a rehearsal at the venue, and also the rehearsal dinner at Bucca di Beppo. The walk through at the venue went really well, and was actually pretty fun. We all had to work on how fast we were walking, and how slow we should go down the aisle during the actual wedding. Afterward we all met at the restaurant and had a huge family sized Italian dinner in the pope room with the entire wedding party, cousins, parents, siblings, significant others, and the cutest little niece I ever did see.

Here is my cousin Odessa, her now husband Tony in his tuxedo shirt, and their little cousin Rebecca.

The bride to be and and her mom, my Aunt Evelyn.

For dinner we had caprese salad, caesar salad, pizza, eggplant parmesan, spaghetti and meatballs, lemon glazed chicken, and a white sauced pasta with vegetables. Oh, and plenty of bread!

There were lots of toast that night for the happy couple!

My handsome date for the evening!

For dessert we all shared a sampler plate. The apple pie and tiramisu was my favorite!

Myself and the bride-to-be with in her pretty white dress and faux veil with feathers.

And of course my cousin and aunt, being super sweet as as always. I just love these two so much and I'm so thankful that they are in my life.

Promise to share more from the wedding soon! Congrats again to Tony and Odessa!
