Weddings have become so much more than a six hour window. There are showers and parties, rehearsal dinners and brunches. Layer upon layer of pretty potential and so many opportunities to infuse your celebration with different styles and textures. And when it comes to celebratory moments, Rosemary Hattenbach and Nicole Sillapere are like the cat’s meow. So before we dive into all of the wedding goodness from this next affair, we wanted to take a pause and just admire the pretty tucked into the rehearsal dinner.

From Rosemary Hattenbach of Rosemary Events… It was a fabulous wedding weekend in wine country for an incredible couple, Jordan and Marty. Guests checked in on Friday and were thrilled to find canvas bags printed with a map of Healdsburg and filled with Jordan and Marty’s favorite artisanal goodies to snack on during their stay: cheese and fresh baguette, Chalk Hill Sauvignon Blanc, Poco Dolce chocolates and Rusty’s Chips from Balboa Island, among other things. Then they headed over to Barndiva for an al fresco welcome dinner. The relaxed evening was the perfect kickoff to the weekend. Nicole Sillapere really outdid herself with gorgeous coral peony arrangements mixed with lanterns on the tables that perfectly complemented the chic surroundings. Guests enjoyed the stationed dinner, which allowed them to view chefs preparing their meal. Guests dined, mingles and enjoyed the sounds of Ever Music Group playing Jazz standards.
