As a nature-loving, plant mom, and Earth-inspired girl that also loves the industrial look myself, I am in LOVE with all that the Ivy House wedding venue has to offer. Endless green backdrops, Ivy spreading around everywhere, and a gorgeous patio area that your can literally dance under the stars at the end of the night to. So beautiful.

Let’s start with the beginning of the day — here are some of my favorite locations for details in the space — the grand ballroom and bridal suite. Tons of natural light, ivy plants to incorporate, and a very cool stereo backdrop in the bride’s private suite.

Moving on to the first looks — again, endless options. For Kathleen and Zach’s day we loved the green brick right below the bride’s suite outside and did a first look with her dad and then letter reading and a first look with this stunning, sweet couple.

I’m crying all over again seeing the photos from this day. This couple was so sweet and really open to all the options — they knew they had carefully chose this venue and told me over and over how much they loved it.

After the first look, we took a little break, wiped our tears, and then moved into some wedding party and family photos. This group was so fun and their wedding party was so ready to celebrate with these two.

How could I forget about bride and groom portraits?! The amount of love these two have for each other made it so easy to see they are the perfect pair. Their love story is super sweet with them growing up just down the street from each other basically growing up together. It wasn’t until college when they began dating and then ultimately getting engaged.

Here come more happy tears, time for the ceremony. Oh my goodness this ceremony was so intentional and sweet to capture. The couple had an outdoor ceremony right on the patio of the Ivy House. The ceremony had such a gorgeous green backdrop as they shared their vows, had their guests bring letters up to them, and had their aunt sing for the prelude.

BRB wiping my tears… After a beautiful and emotional ceremony we moved right into the cocktail hour for guests to mingle and congratulate the newly weds. I love that the bride and groom joined their guests at the cocktail hour. It is such a great way to soak in your day and see and talk to your guests since the day truly does fly by. Next, the groom’s family gave a few heartfelt speeches before everyone moved into the grand ballroom for dinner.

Continuing with the order of events — this couple had their best man and maid of honor give some speeches and then we snuck out for a few sunset hour photos. As the night was coming to an end, the staff at the Ivy House moved everyone out onto the patio again for the first dances and party to begin. We laughed. We danced. We cried. Needless to say, I think it was the best day ever for these two. It was truly such an honor to be there and document this entire day at this stunning venue. I can’t wait to come back and hope to capture wedding for many more amazing couples at the Ivy House.
