When we were planning our summer menu dinner party photo shoot, we initially only had plans to showcase our new menu items at one of our favorite new venues, FLDWRK. Then, the wheels started turning. How can we have a little fun with this?
Nick McClellan, the significant other of Kierstyn Rios, one of the dinner party attendees, surprised her mid-shoot and popped the question! It was a beautiful scene with friends and family surrounding the couple as the engagement was taking place.. and of course some happy tears all around! After Kierstyn said “YES!” everyone feasted on our summer favorites.
Scroll through the whole party to view our summer dishes, the engagement video and Mini Lobster Roll recipe!
