rehearsal dinner with a nautical theme

June 30th, 2014

Martha Stewart Weddings is featuring Danielle and Stan’s rehearsal dinner that we photographed at Medlock Ames Winery, north of Healdsburg in Wine Country. With a nautical theme blending East Coast lobster feeds and California chic, this dinner is the perfect inspiration for the Fourth of July celebrations this week.  The best part is that Stan did the stationery and Danielle did  the styling…I loved the props she found, the linens, the chairs, the fake crabs, the nautical knots and flags, the classic paper place mats.   Talk about talent!

The best part:  the Gone Surfin’ sign.  Yes please!
