Rehearsal Evening

The evening of The Rehearsal Dinner for Jeff and Chelsea arrived and we were very excited! Being parents of the groom, it was our honor and privilege to host the Wedding Party, the immediate families of the Bride and Groom and the Out-of-Town guests.
The rehearsal took place at the venue chosen for the wedding and luckily the downpour happened on this evening but not on the actual wedding day!
Some of the children present found a great place to sit and watch.
We had a wonderful time watching the Wedding Party practice the procession and recessional out with everyone learning what to expect the following evening. The Rehearsal Dinner is traditionally a fabulous time to break the ice with all the folks in the wedding and for the Bride's and Groom's families to get to know each better. That we did over a delicious dinner of homemade lasagne, Caesar salad, garlic bread with tiramisu and coffee for dessert. Dinner was served in the Carriage House next to the Pub and the room was small enough for folks to mingle.
Our evening ended early enough for everyone to get a good rest for the big day!
