This gorgeous wedding reception was photographed by Thisbe Grace under the stars at the Nasher Sculpture Center in Downtown Dallas. Under the direction of wedding planner Jordan Payne, it was a garden inspired wedding with autumn florals and colors of purple, peach and ivory, including an array of foliage bringing it all together with gold details throughout. It was complete with modern details like a white dance floor at the foot of the 40 foot garden sculpture and white lounge furniture under crystal chandeliers hung in the trees.

The ceremony was at SMU's Perkins Chapel. According to the bride, the ceremony was the perfect balance between the celebration of the day and the reality of the commitment the couple was making. They almost vetoed the Nasher because they didn't want an outdoor reception, yet they fell in love with the modern art, the water, and all the beautiful trees once they saw it in person. The idea of the three cakes came from a picture of three, single layer wedding cakes on cakes stands that the bride found. She and her sister found a store in Venice Beach with stacks of vintage glass cake stands and bought two for the wedding. The third cake stand belonged to Delicious Cakes.
