59 mother Kathy's wedding to Jody McCord years earlier and was their chosen designer when Kathy and Rose chaired the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, gala in 1990. (They were the fi rst mother-daughter team, and the fi rst chairs to raise $1 million for the vaunted museum.) "We gave Richard carte blanche," Jennifer says. "We just let him do what he does best." Deep-hued roses, hydrangeas, and orchids were fl own in from across the globe, with magnifi cent fl ower arches leading into the ballroom foyer ("My favorite part of the wedding was walking through that hallway of fl owers," Jennifer says); a wall of roses framed the couple's mirrored monogram; urns overfl owing with massive bouquets; orchids (some 3,000 in all) draping from the patio ceiling; and lavish bouquets dotting every table. Even the seven-tier wedding cake, created by Who Made the Cake, was coated in sugar fl owers. The night was also fi lled with music — cocktail music by Divisi Strings, dinner music by Sharon Montgomery, and dance music by A Town A Lis t. The party went on until the wee morning hours, with the bride and groom departing in a gleaming Rolls- Royce Silver Cloud, their exit lit by synchronized sparklers and fi reworks.
