Nikki and Chad welcomed guests to their Italian inspired rehearsal dinner with cocktails on the croquet lawn at The Breakers Palm Beach. Event designer, Renny & Reed, flew in beautiful trees from New York which we centered the stations around. Reed even incorporated mini versions of the trees for the escort table. We hung the amazing escort cards from Mr. Boddington's Studio from the little branches.
After cocktails, guests feasted on an exquisite Italian dinner in the majestic Circle Ballroom. To start, a trio of pastas including a light-as-air sweet potato gnocchi, followed by The Breaker's take on a caesar salad - a combination of roasted garlic dressing, topped with a balsamic reduction and jumbo stuffed fried olives. Everyone raved about the veal with a skillet of polenta and spinach and could not believe their eyes when the meal finished with an enormous gelato sundae! The amazing meal was enhanced by the perfect wine pairings that The Breaker's master sommelier, Virginia Philip, picked for the meal.
Nikki surprised Chad and the rest of her guests by booking The Three Waiters for dinner entertainment. If you're not familiar, The Three Waiters are amazing singers disguised as actual waiters. Throughout dinner, they put on a bit of a show (it's quite funny and guests totally buy into the act.) At the end of the meal, the waiters are revealed as the amazing singers that they are and put on an astounding performance. Check out the photo below of guest Jerry Rice - he loved it!
My Favorite Detail? The escort cards from Mr. Boddington's Studio. The wax seal with the couple's monogram made them so special. Plus, I loved how guests wore them on their wrists throughout cocktails!
