Kathryn Zera marries Garret Kent 11.30.10

We were honored to be a part of Kathryn Zera and Garret Kent’s nuptials on November 30, 2010. The lovely couple, who met 3 years ago in graduate school at TCU, were married at Christ the King Catholic Church followed by a reception at the Rosewood Crescent Hotel in uptown Dallas. Thisbe Grace Photography did a phenomenal job at capturing this incredible evening!

Bella Flora did stunning work on Kathryn’s bouquet. The bouquet included peonies, hydrangeas, roses and freesia and was adorned with Kathryn’s handkerchief and rosary.
Mr. Ron Zera gave his daughter away…
The magnificent Christ the King Catholic Church….
A sweet moment during the ceremony…
Guests enjoyed cocktails, passed hors d’oeuvres and an opulent seafood ice bar in the Courtyard and Garden Room of the Crescent. The bride and groom share a passion for travel, so they incorporated their hobby into the reception, beginning with a specialty cocktail named “The Passport” which included vanilla vodka, amaretto, cranberry juice and a vanilla bean stick.
The talented Justin Cash played outside during the cocktail hour, creating the perfect atmosphere…
Pictures of the bride and groom’s travels were placed throughout the reception for guests to enjoy. Individually and together, Kathryn and Garret have visited 35 different countries on six continents!
Guests were asked to sign a world atlas instead of a traditional sign in book. Such a cute idea!The Crescent Ballroom was filled with lush floral arrangements of hydrangeas, garden roses, peonies, phaelo sprinkles and vanda blooms. Lots of candles and hints of crystal embellishments were also placed throughout the room. Bella Flora did an excellent job with the flowers and decor!
Kathryn and Garret enjoying their first dance as husband and wife. A beautiful crystal ceiling treatment hung over the dance floor…
How happy are they?! The choir that sang during the ceremony accompanied The Cuvee Band during the father/daughter dance to “My Girl.”
The cake cutting….we love the draping that was hung behind the cake. It created the perfect backdrop for this momentous occasion. And the cake, made by Dallas Affaires, was simply elegant…and amazingly delicious!
This glass sword filled with cognac was given to Kathryn as a gift during one of her world travels to Poland. The couple who gave it to her gave her special instructions to open it on her wedding day. How neat is that?! The cognac was used for the toasts during the reception.
Cuvee kept the dance floor full all night long!
Guests received miniature pies from Tart Bakery as they left the reception. A donation was also made to The Alzheimer’s Association, The Cancer Research Institute and The American Heart Association in loving memory of Kathryn and Garret’s grandparents.
Happy Trails Kathryn and Garret!!!
