Rehearsal Dinner/Nasher Sculpture Center

Friday, May 29, 2009

Courtney & Evan had the most lovely rehearsal dinner at the Nasher Sculpture Center in Dallas.

After a quick run through at Christ the King, family and friends met for dinner at the Nasher.

The tables were incredibly decorated with beautiful floral arrangements in glass vases with tiny white bird sculptures. Guests entered the museum to a table with their placecards beautifully calligraphed around a white dove under a glass ventrine.

Guests were served cocktails and appetizers in the sculpture garden where every detail was artistically inspired.- the glowing bar against the blue lit fountains with Jonathan Borofsky's "The Hammering Man" and Henry Moore under the Dallas Skyline.

But the most inspirational was the James Turrell sculpture - a low lit room where guests sit and look at the opening through the ceiling, dawn and sunset are the best times for viewing since the colors change so dramatically.

The food and service were also incredible with a 4 course meal with a staff that served and choreographed to a T.
The evening ended with humorous toasts by friends and family and a slideshow of the two of them growing up!
