Phillips, as U.S. ambassador to the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development. The Dallas bride and her mother tapped one of Paris' leading event planners: Lucas Somoza, a Houston native living in Paris. Among the distinctive details of the October 2023 wedding, the Texas Boys Choir of Fort Worth performed, lending a Lone Star note to the ceremony. The celebration concluded with a four-course seated dinner and dance at Cercle de I'Union Interalliée, one of Paris' most exclusive private clubs, located on rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré. Officially, the Abbots were wed in a small private ceremony in New York in September to avoid complicated French marriage laws, but for this evening in Paris all was French elegance.
