When I went to see @ana_paz_cakes, I told her I wanted one a simple cake for our wedding.....🤷🏻‍♀️
Somebody said to me last night, “I’m not sure where else I could be dancing next to @gloriaestefan, @evalongoria, Isaiah Thomas and @mittromney while @willychirino sings the “Guantanamera” other than your wedding. Yup. That happened. And it happened, not because they are celebrities, or famous, but because they are close friends. And it touched us so much that very busy friends and relatives flew from all over the country and world to be with us for this very special moment. #navarrocardenasatlast

So happy for my friends @ananavarro and @AlCardenasFL_DC and it was so special to attend their beautiful wedding.… https://t.co/3VupUzMfzV
When I went in for a consultation, I asked #AnaPazCakes to make me a simple cake for our wedding.....🤷🏻‍♀️… https://t.co/lemH1vZAhG
One of the most special moments for a daughter, is having her dad walk her down the aisle. I'm blessed to have mine around and was able to experience that last night. And of course, we walked out to "Guantanamera". #NavarroCardenasAtLast
Guys, I had a Bridal Shower today. And it involved drag queens and the Estefan’s. And cake. Emilio played the conga drums on a queen’s cheeks. There might or might not be video....
Thank you so so much to the staff of the beautiful @stregisbalharbour for their hospitality and graciousness and for welcoming us and our guests with such warmth. This place is spectacular. Gonna make it my “staycation destination”.

The couple has known each other for more than 25 years, but it took time before their relationship turned romantic: "It wasn’t the right time back then, so we became very good friends through the years and through the decades,” Navarro told People. "Finally, things fell into place, things worked out and we’re able to be here today."

 

 

Cardenas “treats me like a princess, he treats me with so much love and respect," Navarro continued. "I like everything about him."
