People sometimes forget that with a beautiful wedding – like this one photographed by Jessica Burke and designed by Jacin of Lovely Little Details – often comes an equally as beautiful rehearsal dinner. And yet there is something far more intimate about the celebration before the celebration. Which is exactly why we wanted to feature this one…an al fresco fete that sets the bar for dinner parties everywhere.
From Jessica Burke & Lovely Little Details…Kate + Matt’s Napa Valley destination wedding weekend kicked off with a lovely rehearsal dinner at Cindy Pawlcyn’s Wood Grill & Wine Bar in St Helena. Long tables adorned with beautiful arrangements, using artichokes as an accent – a nod to the local California cuisine. Surrounded by vineyards, Kate + Matt stepped outside to take a few portraits in the golden sunset and came back to be toasted by many friends + family. With all guests traveling from out of town, the magical outdoor setting was the perfect ambiance to set the tone for the weekend!
