D’Vine Grace Vineyard Wedding with a Chicago Flare

D’Vine Grace Vineyard in McKinney is a wedding venue that you can’t believe is in Dallas. When you are there, you feel like you are in California. The Italian style building, the vineyard out front, and the beautiful chapel make it an incredible location for a wedding. And a wedding photographer’s dream to shoot! 

Dave and Katie wanted their wedding to be fun for guests, many who were headed from Chicago. Their choice of a wedding venue was a careful one, wanting the beautiful Texas countryside mixed with a classy venue. D’Vine Grace Vineyard was exactly that. 

After dodging the rain during the ceremony, the skies could no longer hold back the rain. But luck for the couple and the photographer, we were able to get in all the photos before it started to pour. It poured and poured all night long, but Scott with Creative Touch Dj kept the dance floor packed and everyone having a good time inside. They also had Honeybird Photobooth provide a little relief from the dance floor to take a few fun photos to share with their friends. Here is a little preview of their day!

Rustic Grace | A Summer Time Wedding Dream

Rustic Grace Estate has become somewhat of a home for me in the summers. As the weather gets hot, wedding venues with indoor ceremony and reception are at the top of the list for brides and grooms. With so many rustic venues in north Texas, very few have the indoor ceremony and reception like Rustic Grace Estate. This made the perfect venue for Cliff and Claire to tie the knot.

This was another wedding that we had to reschedule due to covid. Something all of us wedding photographers hope we will start saying less and less. But despite the changes and uncertainty of our covid year, their wedding was beautiful! Here is a sneak peak:

River Road Chateau | A Texas Wedding

River Road Chateau wedding venue was the perfect spot for this couple and their family traveling from the Northeast. When the phone rang with a providence area code, I was shocked. I don’t get many calls from Rhode Island, the birthplace of my father, so I thought it was a family member. But then I heard Jason’s voice and we hit it off right away. It was so fun connecting on that!

When their wedding came, it was just when things were opening back up and vaccines were available. This made it possible to have much of Jason and Leah Ann’s family able to attend. It was truly a reunion. Not only was there the excitement of a wedding…but there was the excitement of family being together for the first time. River Road Chateau truly displaced the beauty of Texas in a charming atmosphere. Here is a preview of these new Englanders’ weddings.

The Start of a family of 3 at The Springs in McKinney

The Springs in Anna has been the perfect wedding venue for couples through the years. Its style is timeless and the layout allows for so many people. As a photographer, big interiors and high ceilings make for great photos! Myra and Ethan knew they would have a lot of guests at their wedding and knew The Springs in McKinney was the venue for them!

This wedding wasn’t any wedding. It was actually one of the most heartwarming weddings I have ever witnessed! Myra has a 10 year old daughter, and you could tell that Ethan and her daughter had a special relationship. Then during the ceremony, after Ethan’s vows to Myra, he got down on his knee and through tears, made vows to his new stepdaughter. He wasn’t just marrying Myra. He was completing their family. It was so special and there wasn’t a dry eye at the wedding venue.

Such a beautiful story! As a photographer, moments like these are so special to photograph! Here is a preview of their amazing day where they became a family of 3!
