1 bride from Massachusetts
+ 1 groom from Kentucky
+ 1 wedding in Maine
= 1 Kentucky Derby themed rehearsal dinner in Portland’s Old Port.
The Portland Harbor Hotel was the setting for the quaint and charming rehearsal dinner for Jillian and Mike. The guests were greeted with an outdoor cocktail hour. Guests enjoyed drinks and small bites among the twinkling lights and luscious gardens at the hotel. Immediately following, guests were invited inside to find the room was transformed with details from Kentucky. We adorned the tables with centerpieces of julep glasses with fresh mint, aqua glass bud vases with colorful poppies and 2015 Kentucky Derby glasses. The colors were just stunning and the candlelight had the room aglow.
The groom’s mother made bite-sized Derby pies for each of the guests. A labor of love for sure! With all of the southern charm, Mr. and Mrs. Osbourne toasted the bride and groom and welcomed Jillian into their family. A perfect night for sure.
