Being a med student makes planning a wedding especially challenging, especially when you are getting married in a different city than your school. AnnaRose finished up her semester in SanAntonio in just enough time to come to Dallas for her bridals before the wedding. We went to Adriatica Village in McKinney and did our best to avoid the wind gusts that kept blowing her veil and dress in every direction. AnnaRose was all smiles and super fun as we strolled around! 3 days later, she wore that same dress at Rustic Grace Estate as she walked down the aisle to see her groom. It was a whirlwind of a week for her, but one she will always remember! Here are some pictures from her session at Adriatica.
The McKinney Flour Mill is such an incredible rustic & historic venue for a wedding in McKinney! The Beelands were married at Our Savior Lutheran Church in McKinney in a beautiful traditional church. Julie’s smile was radiant and the joy these two had was felt by everyone there! It was so beautiful to watch these two tie the knot! Following the beautiful ceremony they headed down to the reception at the Flour Mill in Downtown McKinney.
The reception was nothing short of magical. When I look back at pictures of their Flour Mill reception, I am brought back to the beauty these two shared. You could feel the love and joy in the room. The backdrop of the Flour Mill is truly amazing. The old historic bricks and and original flooring. Being in the Flour Mill feels like a step back in time. You just can’t find historic buildings like this…and to be able to have a wedding here is a gift!
Amanda Spencer helped Julie prepare for the ceremony by doing her makeup, and Bonham Floral provided the beautiful flowers for the ceremony. Full Circle Melody was the DJ for the evening, Mckinney catering brought the delicious meal, and Cakes by Design made the incredible cake.
I was so honored to be one of the many people that took part in making this day one that Julie and Wes would remember for all of their lives!Here is a preview of the McKinney Flour Mill wedding!
Arbor Hills Nature Preserve always sounds like a good idea for an engagement session… Unless it is raining… And then raining again. Some session are harder to schedule than others, thanks to our ever changing Texas weather. But we eventually found a day that had clear skies. We all woke up super early to get some shots as the sun came up, and it was totally worth it! We walked around Arbor Hills Nature Preserve in Plano to get pictures on the trail. By the water, on the bridge, all while dodging the mud that the rain brought. Here is a peek out our Arbor Hills session. Now we just have a few more months until these two get married at Chapel Ana Villa
Avalon Legacy Ranch is where Shannon & Austin will be getting married this October. With their love of outdoors, they decided to do their engagements at White Rock Lake in Dallas. It was the perfect location for their engagement session!
White Rock Lake is such a beautiful spot to take engagement photos! They have bridges, docks, large trees, and a beautiful lake. I could literally spend all day here taking photos! But, it is summertime, so we had to finish before dehydration set in. It was hot, but so worth it! The sunset was magical and these two lovebirds were so much fun. They were always smiling & such a sweet couple to just hang out with.
I am excited to be a part of their wedding up here in McKinney this fall. And this time around, their wedding at Avalon Legacy won’t be approaching 100 degrees. Here are a few of their engagement photos… Come back in October to see them dressed for their big day at Avalon Legacy Ranch!
