A romantic inn with a beautiful working vineyard played host to the rehearsal dinner of one very lucky couple. Surrounded by aged oak barrels and exposed-stone walls, guests were seated at a single table that ran the length of the inn’s charming wine cellar. Low floral arrangements in shades of blush, ivory, and honeydew were packed in square wooden holders that alternated with glowing candles. Rattan chargers were accented with place cards, creamy napkins, and single blooms. The dinner menu was inscribed in white on a single piece of timber. To reflect the individual backgrounds of the couple, pralines in the shape of the groom’s home state of Texas, and tote bags with maps of Malibu were distributed as favors. It was a joyful evening, and the bride recalls being struck by one special thought: “Tomorrow I get to marry my best friend, and our closest friends and family are all present to celebrate with us! I’m so happy it’s finally here!”
