West Comes East Dinner: Lives Styled X Christine Dionese

West comes East

+ A celebration with friends new and old that brought the SoCal vibe I love to my Rochester roots through the colors of vibrantly alive food & drink.

+ Collaborating with friends Hannah & Maryn of Lives Styled has been organic from the start- this special night was yet another reminder of why the three of us love to entertain & connect with people over food.

+ Guests arrived as the last hours of Sunday’s natural light poured through the Lives Styled loft and stayed to chat until it was lit by candlelight.
