Paul is a die-hard sports fisherman and the rehearsal dinner is supposed to be oriented around the groom, right? So, what better place to have the dinner than overlooking Taylor’s Creek in the beautiful restaurant/event venue at the BoatHouse in Front Street Village. The venue sits just above the marina and has a gorgeous outdoor patio with a fire pit and sunset views out to Shackleford Banks and the historic town of Beaufort, NC. Paul’s mother found so many fishing themed ideas for the decorations, cake, cupcakes, party favors and more that I really wanted to share all the clever ideas.
The main color for the event was turquoise, which was vibrant and suited the abstract artwork of the dining area. Tables had nautical elements such as fishing nets, starfish, lanterns and shell place card holders, but my favorite decoration were the fishing boat center pieces with live goldfish.
The event started off with wind and misting rain, but in the middle of dinner, I noticed some color in the sky and rushed the bride and groom out just in time for some spectacular sunset portraits down by the docks.
