Parador Wedding Photos - The Hook Wedding

Hi Guys, welcome to our blog!  This is the area where we share where we have worked, what we are working on and all the beautiful couples we have the privilege of working with.  This month we got to capture a wedding at St Anne's Catholic Church in Houston TX, a beautiful church we work with and at often.  We love the ladies there and their gorgeous chapel.  But the extra exciting part is that we got to also work at The Parador in Houston, TX.  Our 1st time in 10 years and we love it!  Here we will share our Parador Wedding Photos.

Laura & Shelton started their marriage a little differently than most.  They have already encountered and conquered things in life that some will never experience.  This journey together is shown in every thing they do.  These two are simply wonderful!  The 1st time Jonathan met them he came back and told me, and I quote, "there is something very different about these two.  They are very much in love and joy illuminates from them."  And Jonathan was exactly right.  As we captured their wedding their positive energy literally filled the room.  Even blogging their photos now, I found myself typing, editing and smiling.

I usually struggle with minimizing my photos selections and force myself to choose just the "best overview" but not today.  I put any and all photos I wanted and I LOVE it.  So enjoy this sweet couple and their beautiful photos.

The parador wedding reception

We always love when there is a good amount of time set aside to take couple's photos and their Houston Wedding Planner Sava with Two Be Wed hooked it up.  This couple got dozens of gorgeous couple's wedding photos.  Take a look.

All the flowers seen here are by Houston Wedding Florist Tamara Menges.

I want to have this much fun every day!  This photo is very descriptive of just how joyful these two are!

And I want to be this in love every time I see Jonathan because this is what it is all about!  Might I also say, we have been told dozens of times that this is what Duchess Meghan Markle should have looked like on her wedding day.

And even in the rain...

Congratulations Mr & Mrs Shelton Hook!  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.

San Antonio Military Photographer - Army Wedding

As I have been going back through reminiscing of all the beautiful weddings we have captured I am very proud of how many amazing military couples we have met through this photography journey.  We have had the honor of capturing military men and their wives from several of the branches and I hope with time, we have a wedding from each branch.  I think being a San Antonio Military Photographer is going to help us.  We are so excited about this new adventure!  Anyhow, we are excited to share with you all this gorgeous Army wedding!  Here are just a few of our favorite images.

Houstonian Hotel Wedding - Johnson Wedding

This year, we had the privilege of working with a beautiful couple on their wedding day. Lisa and Will decided to have a stunning Houstonian Hotel Wedding. They chose the St Ann’s Catholic Church in Houston for their beautiful ceremony. The couple had a large wedding party with Lisa’s stunning friends wearing yellow bridesmaid’s dresses. She also chose to incorporate her soft yellow colors into her breathtaking bouquet.

The wedding was a picture of perfection, and was everything that one would expect from a Classic Indoor Wedding in Houston. Will is a military man and wore his dress uniform for the ceremony. He chose to surround himself with his closest friends on his special day, and we captured a brief prayer that Will said prior to walking down the aisle to meet the love of his life.

Lisa had her own special moment before the ceremony. She had the privilege of having her father escort her down the aisle, and before the wedding began we captured her father adjusting her veil for her. It was as if he was saying, ‘you will always be my princess’ with his eyes.

The St Ann’s Catholic Church is absolutely breathtaking, with row after row of arched windows and a large vaulted ceiling that set the stage for a Classic indoor wedding in Houston. The altar was graced on either side with yellow wedding décor and large pale yellow wedding flowers. As the couple knelt to begin the ceremony, we snapped some incredible photographs that seized the moment perfectly.

After the ceremony, we took the family outside and gathered some incredible shots of both the bride and groom with their family and close friends. Next was the reception. One could say that it was the epitome of a Ballroom Wedding in Houston. It took place in a Houstonian Hotel ballroom. The space was decked out with sensational yellow wedding décor with dazzling yellow floral centerpieces on each table.
