Kinfolk Dinner at The Metropolitan West Elm

Venue & Props: Metropolitan West Elm // Food & Photography: Anna Naphtali Food: Goldmine, Vivace, Dean & Deluca // Coffee: Not Just Coffee // Paper Design: Lauren Calnin // Video: Caravan Cinema Co. // Flowers: Philosphy Flowers // Event Assistance: Ariana Clare & Goldmine // Linens: Hey Love Events // Music: Jude Moses

This might have been the best dinner party I've ever thrown ;). I cannot thank our vendors, sponsors, guests and friends enough. Katie & the West Elm crew were so helpful. The chefs from Vivace made them most incredible food, I still can't get over it, if you are in town you have to get a martini with their house-made cello and anything off their menu is worth it. Thank you James from Not Just Coffee for bringing your fans and pouring us something special all night. Jude Moses, was a great surprise, and as soon as their album hits I'm going to wear it out. Goldmine always brings the good vibes and amazing food, and I have to say thanks to Kyle Young for helping with the wine selection, I'm still enjoying your choices. And then to finish off the evening everyone went home with a hand-wrapped bouquet from Kelly of Philosophy Flowers along with a cute owl West Elm mug & Goldmine rosmary sea salt.

Thank you to everyone who came and participated, what a beautiful night.
