When you have a destination wedding, as Cassie and Dan did, the rehearsal dinner becomes a true extension of the wedding celebration. For these two, it was about sharing what they love most about Martha’s Vineyard. They wanted a quintessential island feel and chose the Chappy Beach Club as the setting. In addition to a great selection of food (from raw oysters to ice cream by the scoop), they asked guests to come in their best Vineyard attire. And they even showcased old world sailors’ songs to get the guests really enthused. It was a fabulous evening all around.
