Rehearsal Dinner’s are always so much fun to photograph especially when it’s a traditional New England clambake! The couple wanted their out of town friends and family to get a true sense of New England and what better way to do it than have a traditional clambake! The Raw bar featured local oysters & shrimp along side some clear broth chowder for those who needed to warm up a bit. The main course was everything you can think of! Lobster, mussels, steamers, corn, potatoes & kielbasa. It was delicious and that’s coming from a first hand experience. :)

The evening was a cold and wet one but that didn’t stop anyone from having a good time. McGrath Clambakes did such an amazing job. The provided the classic green and white tent while the mother of the groom decorated the inside with white mums, imprinted custom napkins & lobster aprons as well as the cutest step-by-step way to eat a lobster. If you grew up in coastal New England you know there is a right way to crack a lobster and a very wrong way however in the end, it all tastes good it’s just a little less messy. Once the guests arrived they everyone headed into the tent to mingle & watch a slide show of the “kids”. The big hit of the evening was the unveiling of the bake which had been steaming all day! Here’s a little lesson on how it’s done – McGrath’s style.

“McGrath Clambakes is one of the few companies that still prepare a clambake using the traditional cooking process passed down from early New England Colonists. This process begins early in the day when crews are sent out to pick fresh “rockweed” off the local coast. A bonfire is built at the event site with alternating layers of wood and rock. The fire heats the rocks to very high temperatures. Well tended, the fire will settle down to a bed of hot coals and rocks which provide the heat needed to bake the food. This base of rocks and coals are then covered with mounds of rockweed. The bubbles in the rockweed burst when heated, emitting seawater that steams and seasons the food. Racks of food are nestled into the rockweed. The food is artfully layered in a manner that ensures perfect cooking times and a wonderful balance of flavoring. The food is then covered with multiple layers of canvas and left to bake. After cooking, the layers of canvas are then peeled back, a billowing cloud of steam rises, and the perfect summer meal is revealed!”

This was the perfect introduction event for the couple’s seaside tented wedding which took place the next day!
