Alexandra + Will's Intimate Rehearsal Dinner in the South of France

L A Y E R S

It's not every day we see an Arkansas bride travel to the south of France for an epic wedding celebration, but that's exactly what Star City natives Alexandra Harper Sulieman and Will Sulieman did.

The two traveled (with 50 of their closest friends and family members!) about four hours southwest of Paris to Saumur, France. The crew spent the week celebrating the couple before the big day. 

The night of the reception began with a walk around Saumur's village with its stunning architecture and sweeping views. Then, everyone headed to La Table Des Fouées, which is actually a cave housing delicious French wines and cuisine. The dinner lasted about three hours with live music wafting through the intimate, candlelit dining room. Speeches from friends and family rounded out a full evening of fun. 

Talk about a once-in-a-lifetime night. Congrats to you both, Alexandra and Will!
