Oh, what can we say about Bevin and Dan's wedding that would truly describe it? This was really a completely fabulous celebration of love between one of the neatest couples we have had the pleasure to work with. We were approached by Bevin about a year ago about her wedding, and I was so happy she ended up choosing us!
So about this wedding!
We started our day of at the Hotel ZaZa in the museum district. Bevin was getting ready with her girls in one of the suites while Dan was upstairs in the Black Label suite (which was going to be their suite later that night). This is one of the "Magnificent Seven" Suites on the 12th floor and one of the ones that has an out door tub! We took lots of photos at ZaZa before heading over to the Chapel of St. Basil for the ceremony.
The ceremony itself was a very touching Catholic ceremony. The personalized service was enhanced by Dan's sister in law playing guitar while his niece sang a song for them.
After the ceremony was over, Bevin and Dan exited the church where we got lots of photos on the lawn in front of the church while the guests had cocktails in the labyrinth to the sounds of a full mariachi band. The couple were soon introduced as husband and wife and then guests walked to the Menil Collection by lantern light where they were served cocktails and h'or dourves.
After about an hour we all headed over to the Richmond Hall where the Dan Flavin exhibit is housed for the main reception. Music was provided by the Richard Brown Orchestra, which is something like a 15-20 piece band in the big band tradition. The couple went into their first dance and I have to say they really were amazing dancers! After toasts everyone tucked into the food which was prepared by A Fare Extraordinaire. They had Churrasco steaks with chimichurri sauce, pecan fried chicken, avocados stuff with lump crab meat or edamame, macaroni and cheese with truffles, ceviche with fried plantains and jalapeno cheese grits. Very yummy!
After more dancing we went into the white room for the cake cutting. The cake itself was made by Susie's Cakes and was also all white and shaped to mimic the Dan Flavin light pieces on the walls.
After the reception the couple left to party the night away at the ZaZa with their friends and family and then they went on to a two week road trip through the Florida Keys. Where this will lead them, who knows, but i am sure they will have a blast together!
