    What an honor it was to celebrate and host our son, Luke, and new daughter-in-law, Emily Warren Landers', recent Rehearsal Dinner at the George W Bush Library at Cafe 43! The Bush Library event coordinator, Sarabeth Quattlebaum, exemplified the graciousness and expertise you would expect from the Bush family. Sarabeth was incredibly assessible by phone and email, as I was planning our event long distance. She was also flexible and helpful in facilitating several outside vendors and special seating requests. The wait staff led by Jose and Marco were outstanding as was the menu prepared specifically for our event by the talented Chef at Cafe' 43. I would highly recommend this venue to those seeking a historic and once in a lifetime venue for a wedding or rehearsal dinner.
