Want to know a little secret? We love going to rehearsal dinners. It’s such a stress-free way to be introduced to our couples’s friends and family! And in the case of Greg and Jessica’s rehearsal dinner at the Portofino Hotel in Redondo Beach, it was also a chance for us to see a whole bunch of old friends! One of Jessica and Greg’s best friends are Luke and Jessica, who we also photographed for their wedding about 18 months ago! It was so much fun seeing everyone and finally meeting Greg and Jessica’s parents and siblings.
Even better, we LOVED hearing all of the amazing speeches that their friends and family made at their Portofino Hotel rehearsal dinner – a wonderful collection of funny anecdotes, touching stories, and every single person who spoke (all 20+ of them) spoke about just how incredible Greg and Jessica are, and how beloved they are to all of their friends and family. A common theme in everything everyone said was what we already knew: Greg and Jessica are two of the most incredible people in the world and every single person was just so thrilled about their wedding the next day.
Anyway – here are a few of our favorite snaps from Greg and Jessica’s Portofino Hotel rehearsal dinner in Redondo Beach! We can’t wait to share their wedding later this week! Entertainment was provided by the Dietz Brothers of Manhattan Beach!
