A Perfect Prelude – Janet and Charles’ Wedding Rehearsal Party

Before I share with you our favorite images from Janet and Charles’ wedding day, I first wanted to share a few highlights from their wedding rehearsal and the cocktail party that followed on June 4th.

Janet, Charles, and their guests spent the day before the wedding relaxing in the Willamette Valley, playing golf, wine tasting, and relieving some pre-wedding stress at the Allison Inn Spa. The weather, which had been rainy all week, started to turn from gray clouds to blue skies and set the perfect stage for Janet and Charles’ wedding weekend. Rather than having a traditional rehearsal dinner, Janet and Charles’ hosted a cocktail party at NW A Wine Bar in downtown McMinnville, Oregon. All of their guests were invited to attend, giving everyone the opportunity to meet and greet before the big day. It was the perfect beginning for what was to be a beautiful and celebratory weekend.

Lincoln and I love photographing rehearsals. We feel lucky to have had the opportunity to be there to document this relaxed and joyous prelude to Janet and Charles’ wedding day. Please enjoy this preview and stay tuned for photos from their spectacular wedding celebration!

Vibrant Table did an amazing job catering the cocktail hour and provided the lovely floral decor for the rehearsal party.

A great time was had by all!
