Gemstone Soirée | Glamorous Open House at Hughes Manor
by Kaitlyn August 20
Jewel tones and glam details abound in this gemstone soirée at Hughes Manor: an open house to show off the incredible venue! Combining aspects of a styled shoot and a fashion show to give guests the ultimate open house experience, this special evening included so many beautiful boho and whimsical details to love. Taking center stage: the jaw-dropping suspended agate cake from Cakes by Gina, carrying on the gemstone theme, of course. Statement-making florals by F. Dellit Designs, sparkling stationery from Half Moon Lettering and rentals from Oliver & Penelope adorned the tables at this soirée, while outside, the fashion show overtook the courtyard. The models wore bridal gowns from Belle Âme Bridal, one with crystal detailing and one with a cascading bow in the back, while the bridesmaid models wore velvet gemstone-colored frocks from Bella Bridesmaids. Sunkissed and Made Up gave everyone perfectly tousled hair and bold, eye-catching palettes. Be sure to watch the recap video from Reverent Wedding Films below, too. Cheers to another year of gorgeous weddings at Hughes Manor!
