Croquet Rehearsal Party by Photography by Leah
September 3, 2010
United States

In keeping with the spirit of three day weekends, last summer hurrahs and a chance to don your best summer whites before you become a big fashion faux pas (unless you are the bride of coarse), we have an uber cute Rehearsal party to share. That's right, I said party because not only did this wedding group eat and drink some fab food and wine but they also partied it up on the croquet field to the tunes of a local jazz band. That sounds like an absolute blast to us! Captured by Leah McCormick, this all white Napa soiree is the perfect way to send you all off into your weekend festivities. Enjoy and catch the full rehearsal bash in the gallery!

From the photographer, Leah McCormick:

Their wedding was on the 4th of July weekend so I thought this idea for a rehearsal was perfectly festive and a truly wonderful way for all the guests to get to know each other! Croquet, laughing, drinking wine in Napa, a jazz band, delicious food, what more can you ask for?! I absolutely loved shooting it so hopefully the beautiful and carefree feel of their evening comes across. Byron and MacKenzie were living in Nashville while planning their wedding and immediately after moved to NYC where Byron is about to celebrate his white coat ceremony from med school. Their families came in from Washington D.C. and Merced, CA respectively. Everyone was absolutely thrilled to dress in white for the party and spend the weekend in St. Helena.
