Modern Chic Rehearsal Dinner Inspiration

Sometimes we overlook fabulously unique restaurants as potential intimate wedding-related event spaces, and we have a ton of them here in Hampton Roads, especially in Downtown Norfolk! So when this modern chic rehearsal dinner inspiration came from Sterling Dawn Events and Daytona May Photography, I was excited to see such a local-infused lineup with this creative team!

With hand-lettered signs, sparkly gold details in jewelry, table runner, and stationery, richly-hued reds in florals, and an entire crew of friends full of fun and cheer, the Field Guide restaurant on Granby Street radiated energy and a great celebratory vibe.

Turning a restaurant into a small event space can sometimes be a challenge, but that's why weddings are best left to the pros! Sterling and Daytona certainly transformed this foodie hot spot into a beautiful ambiance for a chic rehearsal dinner.
