Magnolia Grace in Lenard (east of McKinney and Princeton) was the perfect location for Laura and Omar’s wedding. They picked the location because of its natural beauty outside, the simplicity of the building, and how many people it could hold. Laura and Omar were expecting hundreds of people to fill the room to celebrate with them and witness their wedding. But COVID.
But COVID has been the unfortunate way to describe how things were supposed to be and how they are. A guest count of 250 was dwindled down to around 60 because of how many guest would have needed to travel far distance to make it to their wedding at Magnolia Grace. Planes and hotels were just too much risk for many, and so they would just join the live feed to still see their wedding. I am so grateful for technology, that even through distance and quarantine, we can connect and be a part of big moments.
Despite the change in guest count, they had a wedding that was full of energy, love, and joy. Those who were able to make it made the couple feel as if there were 250 people there. The energy and excitement was palatable. These two were well celebrated and well loved! What a joy it was to photograph their wedding at Magnolia Grace! Here are some of the pictures from that day:
