REPOST: Oneika & Jamar {Houston, TX}

The very first couple that I ever featured here on the blog celebrated their 1-year anniversary a couple of days ago! In celebration of their anniversary, I’ve reposted their feature! This is still one of my favorite posts to date. :) Enjoy!


It is with much excitement that I post YesWeWed’s very first feature – the beautiful wedding of Oneika & Jamar Shelby, shot by Papillon Perspectives. I first spotted their wedding while browsing through Facebook one day. At the time, I was still juggling with the idea of YesWeWed and whether there was really a need for it, but once I saw these breathtaking images I just knew I had to launch the blog. ♥   

Oneika & Jamar wed March 19, 2011 in sunny Houston, Texas. As Owner & Event Planner of Stylëvënts, Oneika was a bride that knew exactly what she wanted for her wedding day.

What a beautiful wedding party if I may say so myself! I am LOVING the bright colors on everyone!

Jamar is a New Orleans Native and a “Die-Hard” Saints fan, so it was only right that his groom’s cake be “Black & Gold”.

And how cute are the personalized soda bottles with matching straws? Can you believe Oneika did them herself?

Jamar is loving him some Oneika, isn’t he ladies? Just look at the way he’s looking at her. I love it!

You can tell by their shoes that they are quite the fashionable couple. :) 

So much fun! In true New Orleans style, Oneika & Jamar held a Second Line at their reception.

Congratulations Oneika & Jamar! Thanks for letting us take a glance into your special day.
