Compton Clambake hosts a non-traditional rehearsal dinner filled with New England fare overlooking Newport Harbor for Charlotte and John.
With many fond childhood memories of lobster dinners, Charlotte and John decided to host a clambake in Newport for their rehearsal dinner. Compton Clambakes came equipped with stone, seaweed, a bonfire wood pit, and of course – shellfish! The bakemaster treated guests to a fun history lesson by the fire pit before everyone feasted on what Charlotte describes as “the best lobsters, steamers, and clams we’ve ever tasted.” Exquisite Events teamed up with Sayles Livingston Flowers to set the mood for the dinner with flowers and décor. Guests dined at white picnic tables covered with blue and white linens. Hurricane candles alternated with mini floral arrangements in white and yellow hues. As the sun was setting a canopy of market lights illuminated the picnic tables continuing the fun into the night. “It was a magical evening filled with laughter and wouldn’t have been possible without planner extraordinaire Stasia Anthony and the Exquisite Events team, or Compton Clambakes,” Charlotte reminisces.
