A Very Special Swankey Rehearsal: Megan’s Brother Brandon & His Bride Samantha

Wedding bells are ringing in the Jones household this year, starting with my brother Brandon marrying the beautiful Samantha. I guess it’s nice having a wedding planner in the family because I was there with Swankey Events to plan the entire wedding weekend, including his rehearsal dinner.

The party took place at a friend’s idyllic private residence in Key West overlooking the Gulf of Mexico. I enlisted Mama Flowers for the gorgeous flowers and Eventfully Yours for the party rentals.

It was a true family affair, as you can see with the picture above of me and my brother. Close friends also joined in the celebration, and our longtime family friend Alfonso even treated us to entertainment on the guitar.

One of the funniest–and my favorite–details of the rehearsal was the cake that Key West Cakes created based on an actual picture of Brandon! The catering by Marriott Beachside was absolutely divine and included fried mac & cheese, duck confit, shrimp & grit cakes, and prime rib.

My little niece Lilly nearly stole the show and definitely captured the eye of Studio Julie who was there photographing all the festivities. For more pictures of the rehearsal dinner, click here. Lilly joined in on my parents’ toast and was just absolutely adorable!

I’m so happy for my brother and Samantha, and it was an absolute honor to plan his rehearsal dinner and wedding. Stay tuned for details and pictures from the spectacular wedding day!
