The phrase “When you know, you know” couldn’t be more true for Julia and Bryce! Julia has always loved weddings and dreamed of her own since she was a little girl. So when she met Bryce in 2017 not only did she immediately know he would be her future husband, but she also knew exactly what type of wedding she wanted when the time came.
Following a romantic beachside proposal, the time finally came 11 months later when the couple tied the knot in a traditional Catholic church ceremony before joining 230 of their loved ones for a classic wedding reception at Northgate Country Club. “We wanted a very timeless and classic wedding,” notes the bride, describing the elegant rose gold and white color palette. “The white dance floor and white draped walls, paired with the large windows overlooking the rolling hills of Northgate Country Club, made for the most elegant reception. We had large arrangements of peonies, spray roses, and hydrangeas which matched perfectly with the blush uplighting. The glass chandeliers, rose petals, and floating candles in all of the window sills transformed the venue into the most dreamy space.” The newlyweds and their guests enjoyed a delectable filet mignon with roasted potatoes and asparagus and danced the night away before ending their classic wedding celebration with a golden sparkler sendoff! Says Julia: “Our big day was nothing short of the most marvelous fairy tale.” Join us in wishing this sweet Houston couple a lifetime of love and scroll down to see their stunning highlight wedding video from Houston videographer Reverent Wedding Films.

After meeting through mutual friends in 2014, Shiva and Jonathan later connected on Facebook when Jonathon messaged Shiva about the World Cup because he knew she liked soccer. “He came up with all these stats on players and I assumed that he knew a lot about soccer and that we had a lot in common,” recounts Shiva. “We decided to go out to a cafe in Montrose, just us two, and we hit it off from there.” Three years later Jonathon proposed to Shiva on the rooftop of Hotel ZaZa with the glittering lights of the downtown skyline as their backdrop.
Shiva and Jonathan pledged their love at The Houstonian Hotel, Club & Spa in a traditional Persian ceremony, accompanied by a beautiful Sofreh Aghd, in a timeless wedding palette of white and gold. The bride describes her Persian wedding as “glamorous and romantic.” The reception decor featured tall dramatic floral centerpieces, glittering chandeliers, and a custom monogrammed dance floor from LG Event Entertainment & Production. Guests enjoyed a delectable surf and turf reception meal, followed by an elegant four-tier white and gold squared wedding cake with raspberry filling from Susie’s Cakes. Cherished moments for the bride included the father-daughter dance, first look, and dancing with everyone! We are so excited to feature this gorgeous Houston couple and their romantic Persian wedding. Congratulations, Shiva and Jonathan!
