Nadia and J had the most stunning wedding at Inns of Aurora. Their Aurora, New York rehearsal dinner venue was The Stone House. A private home, listed on airbnb, it was the perfect space to host their intimate dinner and a welcome party.

Stone House Welcome Party
They started the evening with dinner at one long table in the backyard. String lights hung overhead, dishes were passed and the wedding weekend was just beginning. Soon all of the guests arrived. Lawn games entertained everyone and a bluegrass band played in the background. At the end of the night guests gathered to watch a slideshow with all of the childhood photos. It was incredible to see Nadia + J as middle schoolers – living totally different, awkward lives in opposite parts of the country – and take stock of how their stories ended up intertwining.

The welcome party is one of the best times to include your dog in your wedding. Most couples who want a picture with their dog can take the photo without worrying about their wedding outfits.
