welcome-rehearsal-wedding eve dinner


I love love. It has been my motto at work from way back when. If you give love, you get love. I get particularly mushy when I see couples on a first date, anniversary, or honeymoon. I even melt watching a happy couple on a Friday night date. Ahhh love. Some of the best love is at weddings. I have had the pleasure of catering close to 100 weddings in my years on St. Croix. And, while I have loved most, and cried and danced at many, I am starting to realize that I have a newfound passion and gift for hosting and catering rehearsal dinners.




For destination weddings on an island like St. Croix, they are often called welcome dinners. However labeled, it is the night before the wedding when family, close friends, college roommates and those random unexpected guests that when they found out you were getting married in St. Croix pledged to be here gather to celebrate the ensuing nuptials and to share in the excitement of spending time together. It is a happy, stress free time, and I can think of no better place to celebrate than eat@canebay!

Now imagine our friendly and talented bartender greeting you and your guests with a cocktail mixed named specially for you. As you and your guests enjoy your cocktails and celebrate seeing one another, servers float through the open air dining room offering tasty and inventive food shots. You, your family and your friends are relaxing and sinking into our north shore St. Croix vibe. You are in great hands and in an ideal location to set the stage for your big day. Love is in the air.
