The hand-painted tiles on the wedding cake are incredible and the floral design on those chiavari chairs will forever be on my favorite list. The weathered venue adds a sense of magic and when paired with the décor elements, the total effect is quite breathtaking.

    The blue and white tiles are called Azulejo and are used throughout Portugal to chronicle major historical and cultural events.
