We would like to introduce to you Mr & Mrs Matthew Collins!
We are so excited to be able to share this gorgeous wedding with you. First, some background…for those of you who have not met this bride, this is Jonathan’s sister Susie and her now husband Matthew. We all had so much fun pulling this wedding together for them but no one had more fun than Susie and Jonathan’s mom. A designer at heart, she personally implemented each and every detail seen at this stunning wedding. She is also the owner of Jacqueline Chapelle French Inspired Events and many of the decor elements shown are from her with our favorite being her stunning tents. I can honestly say this was equally the most fun and most work we have ever done at a wedding and at the end of night it was so rewarding to look around and see everyone having a blast and enjoying cup of freshly brewed coffee from Java Pura while waiting to take photos in the Jonathan Ivy Photo Booth. There were so many photos I wanted to post but I had to seriously hold myself in check and limit myself down to these few. I hope you enjoy this beautiful country, chic wedding.

This is just one of the many reasons we absolutely love First Looks! These are priceless photos you would never get without taking a moment alone together. Matthew’s face is superb, you feel like you were there when you see the photos below.
Susie was also able to place those final touches on her groom. With the help of her iPhone she perfected Matthew’s bow tie!
Instead of having sleeves on her wedding dress I love how she opted for the classic look of a bolero jacket! So elegant.
Here is the beautiful ceremony site with one of Jacqueline Chapelle’s tents. This wedding took place on a private estate in North Houston. The wedding party walked down the aisle with a bagpiper and the sound of the beautiful music floating throughout the countryside set the pace for a beautiful ceremony.
To kick off the reception we introduced the wedding party then started the evening with a dance by Carlos who is Flamenco Dancer. Very cool performance!
Both of these beautiful cakes were created by Susie’s Cakes which has officially been nominated as Jonathan and I’s favorite cake ever and we eat alot of cake. The wedding cake flavor is unstoppable!
Another one of Jonathan & I’s favorites was at this wedding and it was the Texas Unlimited Band. This band is awesome! They play the best music and they can play anything. Its always a party when Texas Unlimited is around.
