November 2009


The breathtaking Christ the King Catholic Church was the location for Courtney and Evan’s wedding ceremony this past May.  It is such an amazingly beautiful church, as you can see from the photos below.  The day was full of rain from start to finish, but it did not dampen (haha) the festivities one bit.  The reception followed at the newly renovated (last year) Tower Club.  It is a gorgeous space with a fab view of downtown Dallas at night!  The bride’s cake was one of our favorite things about this wedding, as it had charms on ribbon baked into the cake for all the bridesmaids to pull and see their “fortune”.  🙂  And wasn’t Courtney’s wedding gown just divine?  LOVED it!  Beautiful woman, beautiful dress.

Courtney & Evan had their rehearsal dinner at the Nasher Sculpture Center.  It was crisp and fresh and lovely, with a green and white color palette.  Cocktails were enjoyed outside in the Garden — joyfully, the weather was perfect!  After enjoying appetizers and live music, they moved indoors to partake in a delicious dinner from Wolfgang Puck.  Inside, the tables were decorated with beautiful floral arrangements in tall glass vases. White porcelain doves were tiny accents throughout the decor.  Postcards from the museum were on each table, so that guests could write their well wishes for the bride and groom.  After the fabulous 4-course dinner, the evening concluded with toasts and a slideshow of the bride and groom “through the years”.
