It isn't too often that I feature a rehearsal dinner and the truth is, they are pretty easy to overlook due to majority of every brides focus (myself included) on the big day!
Well this BBQ inspired rehearsal, from Carter & Cook Event Co. and Habitat Floral Studio, has me rethinking everything - from the fabulous rustic Montana venue to the down home country atmosphere, lets just say I am inspired big time!
From Lindsay (the bride): Friday night we hosted a Welcome BBQ for all guests on the banks of the Blackfoot river. Guests sat at picnic tables and feasted on typical BBQ fare — brisket, fried chicken, baked beans, grilled corn, and s’more bread pudding. We did a microbrew tasting featuring beers from Bitterroot Brewing Company — the brewery in my dad’s hometown of Hamilton, Montana — and guests went home with customized Bitterroot Brewing Company pint glasses. Lots of Bulliet Bourbon was also served — a favorite of Steve’s [the groom]. Guests were entertained with hatchet throwing (yes, this combined with the beer tasting/bourbon drinking did give me a little scare but the husband really wanted this one), roping lessons, and fly fishing lessons. 10 Foot Tall and 80 Proof kept us dancing with their unique combination of rock, country, and blue grass music!
