How to create a remarkable gala for an event in an iconic, Frank Gehry building--Walt Disney Concert Hall? Shiraz Events shows the power of less is more ...
The red carpet follows the sinuous curves of the famed structure.
The team of Shai Tertner and Jason Harder from Shiraz create a pre-concert cocktail area among geometric mirrored columns topped with white orchids.
In the reception area, 16-foot bamboo towers are topped with orchids.
Projections feature quotes by Gehry, the evening's honoree, and images of the building.
After the concert, guests move through a "tunnel" to the dinner tent. Underscoring the "Starry Night" theme, galaxy gobos on the ground help direct guests.
The stunning tent, which features a palette of white, silver and sage green, is outfitted with round white tables topped with clean, modern glassware, silver-rimmed white porcelain plates, and hammered silver chargers.
A breathtaking chandelier suggests the starry night sky.

Parting gifts echo the "10" theme.
