Sus and Gus, had such a unique global love story that brought them to this beautiful place. They met in Houston at a theater class in college, despite Sus growing up outside Washington D.C. Gus, meanwhile, spent his formative years in Venezuela. After five years of dating, Gus popped the question in that same theater class space, and the preparations for a cross-cultural wedding began.
The couple fell in love with the lushness of Stone Tower Winery and brought together family from all corners of the world for their inclusive wedding, including guests from South America, Europe, India and the US. Sus and Gus planned for a variety of traditions, from the crushing of the glass and an hora, to hand-fasting and a Latin Hora Loca, the couple wanted to honor the roots and traditions of their families coming together.
The pair exchanged vows under the Chuppah, surrounded by aging barrels of wine, and sealed it with a kiss as their friends and family cheered.
After the ceremony, the couple shared a romantic first dance in the winery’s grand ballroom, surrounded by twinkling lights and lush floral arrangements. It was a beautiful celebration of love.
