To make things even more intimate, the dining tables were pushed together.
“Anne could not stop smiling, everyone was so happy and Adam kept making her laugh,” a source told us.
“Anne and Adam kissed as one of their friends made a toast during the end of the dinner. It was really romantic.”
So what was on the rehearsal dinner menu, known as ‘The Heart of Big Sur?’
Hathaway, 29, Shulman, 31 and their guests dined on organic beets, hand harvested diver scallop and Colorado grass fed lamb before kicking back with cheese (Saint Andre triple cream with honey) and dessert (coconut and ginger panna cotta), a waitress told Celebuzz.
A vegetarian option was also available.
On Saturday, set against the gorgeous backdrop of the Big Sur coastline, Hathaway and Shulman were married in front of 180 guests at sunset.
As Celebuzz reported exclusively, the wedding theme was white, pink and rustic. The bride wore a custom-made Valentino gown with a headpiece and viel while the groom donned a traditional black tuxedo and tie.
For the reception, 18 tables were set up under a private marquee, as San-Francisco based jazz trio American Social Club provided tunes for the first hour. A DJ from Los Angeles provided the soundtrack for the rest of the evening.
Hathaway and Shulman have been dating for nearly four years. Shulman, an actor and jewelry designer, proposed to the Dark Knight Rises actress in November 2011.
