Sarah and Humberto’s Houston garden wedding has it all, y’all. There’s the beautiful outdoor wedding ceremony surrounded by friends, family and sunshine, at indoor-outdoor Houston wedding venue Hughes Manor. There’s the chic navy, blush and gold wedding palette, executed in elegant style inside Hughes Manor’s modern-vintage interior. And there’s the TDF wedding cake from Cakes By Gina, with its metallic stacks and floral accents. Seriously, it’s just a flat-out fabulous Houston garden wedding, and we can’t get enough (kinda like the guests couldn’t get enough of those insane crab puff tostadas from Cordúa Catering…OMG, yum!!). Thank you, Sarah and Humberto for sharing your incredibly special day with us. Wishing you a lifetime of love, joy…and dancing. xo Click here to read the rest of this post »
