Savannah & Chris invite the wedding party to participate in the wedding rehearsal and dinner at Quincy Cellars.
Savannah and Chris like to keep life simple and decided to host their rehearsal dinner at Quincy Cellars, immediately following the wedding ceremony rehearsal, Friday evening. Quincy Cellars has many options for party spaces and event menus so Savannah thought it perfectly simple and aligned with the couple’s affinity for a natural ambiance. The rehearsal dinner party is on the patio an ideal spot for a casual smaller party.
Savannah and Chris chose a BBQ dinner for the evening. The menu includes a savory BBQ beef brisket for the main dish with a side of freshly picked and grated house-made cole slaw. The starch will be a salt-crusted baked potato, served hot, just out of the oven. A freshly picked vegetable mix will be grilled and served hot as well. And it wouldn’t be a BBQ without the corn bread – Quincy’s is a delicious made-from-scratch corn bread made with lots of flavorful ingredients and affection for this amazing couple and their closest friends and family.
To finish, the menu includes two dessert options both of which are house-made, from scratch. The first dessert is a decadent match between wine and chocolate. It is a chocolate cabernet tart that is most definitely, to die for. Additionally, a light yet full-of-flavor strawberry shortcake will be served.
Iced tea and lemonade soft drinks are the perfect match for a BBQ and will be available for guests. The bar will be open as well with Quincy Cellars wines poured upon request. Two styles of 7 Sins Brewery craft beer are on tap too.
Rehearsing for the big day has never sounded more delicious!
Katie recently messaged me. “I literally can’t even believe our wedding is less than two weeks away!!!! It doesn’t even seem real!!!!”
So What is Katie Up To?
She and her mother recently had a salon run-through and she completed plans for the wedding-day breakfast. Katie is thrilled she chose Panache in Erie to prep for her special day. The stylist and make-up artist were both very nice and as excited for Katie’s day as she. In Katie’s words,
“My salon appointment was amazing and the salon is absolutely gorgeous inside!!” Once the appointment was done Katie and her mom were teary-eyed, feeling beautiful.
On her wedding morning all seven bridesmaids, her mother and flower girl will accompany Katie at Panache to get ready for this storybook day. Katie will order bagels, muffins and mimosa ingredients in advance from the Giant Eagle next door to Panache. That morning the Panache wedding-day coordinator will pick up the order and prepare for the bridal party. Fantastic!
Wedding Day Rehearsal
The rehearsal will be Friday evening at Quincy Cellars. Event coordinator, Amy, will be hustling around assuring all vendors, kitchen and wine cellar staff have what they need. She will also guide Katie, Matt and their close friends and family through what to expect on the wedding day. Before the day’s end, Amy will confirm all details are in order.
To fit their laid-back style, Katie and Matt decided on a casual Italian meal at Calamari’s in Erie for the rehearsal dinner. Lasagna and a sausage, peppers and onion sandwich will be served along with a salad, mixed vegetables, meat and cheese and fruit trays and rolls. Delish. The bridesmaids, groomsmen and their significant others, grandparents, aunts and uncles are invited to the intimate gathering.
In addition to the meal, Matt and Katie will present a gift to each member of the wedding party in appreciation for their friendship and participation in wedding festivities and their marriage. Katie’s girls will receive something they may use the wedding day morning while Matt’s guys will wish they had theirs at his bachelor party (by the way, that is coming up this Sunday!). Very thoughtful.
