Already have your Reception planned? Consider us for the Rehearsal Dinner which sets the stage for the entire wedding weekend and is often the first opportunity for family members and guests to meet and greet.  It’s usually relaxed and intimate.

For convenience reasons, the rehearsal dinner should take place close to the wedding location.
