Wedding Rehearsal Dinners

Since most Vineyard weddings are weekend events, in addition to your wedding dinner, you may want to plan a bridal luncheon, rehearsal dinner, wedding brunch or all three.

Options abound when it comes to your wedding rehearsal dinner:  A clambake or paella on the beach where you can take a cool dip under the setting sun;  full dinners prepared and delivered to your rental home to be enjoyed out on the deck or inside with your friends and family in an informal and relaxed setting;  buffets of any style and type, set up for self-service absolutely anywhere;  a full sit-down dinner at the luscious Vineyard location of your choice.  No matter what you prefer, there are many location and meal options to choose from!

Your special rehearsal dinner will shine no matter what location or menu you choose and all will prepare you and your guests for the big event.

We start with a giant authentic Spanish paella pan with Spanish extra virgin olive oil, sweet organic onions, organic pepper and Arborio rice. To this we add fresh seafood like clams, mussels, calamari and wild Maine shrimp. All is steeped in a saffron broth with our own sausage, organic pastured chicken, beans, corn, baby artichokes and garlic hearts and then topped off with tangy lemon juice and herbs! Serves 20 – 200

Clambakes have been served on Martha’s Vineyard for as long as anyone can remember. The Wampanoag Indians gave us this time-honored method of steaming seafood over hot stones in rockweed. Family gatherings are perfect for this classic, delicious menu which we call our New England Roast.
