The Clubs at Houston Oaks Wedding - Jordan & Stewart

Our final wedding of 2018 is utter perfection! We wrapped a very crazy year with one of the most beautiful weddings of the year. We did things a bit different this time in that Jonathan Ivy went through and chose his favorite photos (187 of them LOL). Then I went back through his choices to choose mine, and those are the photos you see here. Their entire wedding took place at The Clubs at Houston Oaks and things kicked off with the guys out at the gun range. And the ladies getting ready in the Women's Locker Room.

The bride gifted her mom the sweetest gift that morning while getting ready. And have you ever seen a Men's and Women's locker room this beautiful! The women's side has a lounge and seating area and the men's side has a full bar and lounge.

One of our favorite parts of the 'getting ready' process is the 1st looks with the bride and her dad and the bride and her bridesmaids. It is so exciting to see their initial reactions.

The Clubs at Houston Oaks Wedding

There wedding ceremony took place outside in front of the Clubs at Houston Oaks chapel on the lawn. The trees out there are absolutely beautiful.

After their beautiful outdoor wedding ceremony, their guests went to cocktail hour under the grand oaks near by and we took photos. Soon after we all hopped in golf carts and headed over to the Houston Oaks Golf Club Pavilion where they had their covered outdoor wedding reception. F. Dellit and Emily with Keely Thorne Events did an amazing job with the layout and decor.

Every wedding we capture has its own unique personality and beauty and this wedding was no exception. Every element was filled with love with half of the decor and personal elements being hand made by family and friends.

Right before leaving the reception the bride swapped into her getaway gown and re-joined the party. As you can see, everyone here is having a blast.

Congratulations Mr & Mrs Jordan & Stewart Butler!  Thank you for trusting us to capture your wedding. We pray a lifetime of joy over you!  To see more of Jonathan Ivy’s wedding portfolio please visit his website.

Crystal Ballroom Wedding - Jackie & Cody

This Crystal Ballroom wedding is absolutely gorgeous and we are so excited to share it with you all.  Jackie and Cody's Crystal Ballroom Wedding was not only fun (as you can see in the photos below) but it was beautiful.  Danyett with Two Be Wed once again, made this wedding day such a joy.  I am in love with this wedding.

A couple of getting ready traditions that we love are the 1st Look between a Bride & her Father.  And the 1st look with the Bride & her Bridesmaids.  Such special moments to start the day with.  The bride's STUNNING Christian Louboutin wedding shoes can be found here.  And her down is from Ivory Bridal Atelier.

And every once in a while we get to sneak off and snag a few photos of the groom and groomsmen getting ready.  Check out these dashing gentlemen.

Their wedding ceremony is at St Paul's United Methodist church in Houston TX.

So great story about the next photos.  Jonathan took this couple to Main in Houston to snap some chic, city engagement photos.  When they got there Jonathan learned that just around the corner at Moonshiners is where they had their 1st date!  So naturally they headed that direction to snap these cute photos which made the location even more special.

This is a quote we love over here at Jonathan Ivy: Love is friendship that has caught fire. It is quiet understanding, mutual confidence, sharing and forgiving. It is loyalty through good and bad times. It settles for less than perfection and makes allowances for human weaknesses. - Ann Landers
