McKinney girl and her Rustic Wedding .

Rustic Grace estate is just north of McKinney, so it made the perfect wedding venue for Katie. Katie grew up in McKinney, so we started the day downtown at The Grand Hotel. We then headed to her venue for an incredible wedding!

 

Katie & Tyler got married at Rustic Grace Estate just north of McKinney on a beautiful summer evening. But this wasn’t just any other wedding at Rustic Grace. This is truly one I won’t forget because of the love this couple had for each other and for their faith. It was so evident on their faces and the way that they spoke, that this wedding day was one filled with anticipation, joy, and beauty. As I walked with them around Rustic Grace taking photos, I was smiling the whole time. I was delighted to get to be a part of this couple’s wedding.

That being said, it should come as no surprise that their ceremony was both meaningful and joyful. The smiles were genuine and the vows were sincere. And after their beautiful ceremony at the Rustic Grace Estate white chapel, we headed over to the red barn & silos for the reception. It was in the silos that the dance floor stayed packed, the pies were eaten, and memories were made. To end the evening, Katie and Tyler had a private last dance under the string lights in the barn. They were then sent off with bubbles and cheering as they began their newest chapter together. Congrats to Katie & Tyler for the Rustic Grace Estate wedding!

Rooftop wedding to start your year!

Let’s start 2020 with one of my favorite weddings of all time! A rooftop wedding at 2616 Commerce Event Center in Deep Ellum could not have been a more stunning backdrop for Ashley and Christian’s wedding! I will admit…it was insanely hot. Like over 110 degree hot. But well worth it it! The view from 2616 Commerce Event Center of the Dallas skyline is stunning! And to have that as the backdrop of your wedding? Yes, please!

Ashley and Christian are the sweetest couple! I could not take enough photos of these two because they were smiling the entire night! They have been together for years, so this night was highly anticipated and filled with so much joy and emotion!

The wedding ceremony was on the 2616 Commerce Event Center rooftop. Following the wedding we stayed on the room to get some of my favorite photos I have ever taken with the skyline in the background. I am especially in love with the one of her veil in the air – you will have to scroll down to see it!

Their reception was just below the rooftop wedding in their reception space. And it was amazing! This crowd was so much fun and the DJ was incredible! It felt like I was at a concert with the dance floor so packed! They danced, they ate, they laughed, and they enjoyed the photobooth. To finish the night, they ran through sparklers to a horse and carriage that they rode to their hotel. What a charming way to end the most perfect wedding! This is definitely one of my all-time favorite weddings…and that is 100% because of the couple. They were so fun and full of joy!!

That time an Eagle was the ring bearer. No Joke.

White Rock Lake in Dallas is an iconic spot for Dallas lovers to escape the city and enjoy time at the lake. And getting married at The Filter building at White Rock Lake is the perfect Dallas backdrop for a wedding. But it is not every day that this beautiful nature backdrop is seen with eagles and owls. But when the bride works at the zoo, her friends bring birds of prey instead of their kids. So you can say this is a wedding for the books. The Filter Building at White Rock Lake will have trouble topping this one.

The ring bearer was a trained eagle who flew down the aisle on command from the groom. After perching on the grooms arm and delivering the goods, the eagle flew back to the back to watch these two tie the knot. But that isn’t all! The cocktail hour wasn’t all about appetizers and margaritas. No, this cocktail hour had meet and greet with a few owls and eagles. Once that finished up, we headed inside for an incredible reception where only humans were invited. Lots of laughter, lots of dancing, and lots of fun! HoneyBird photobooth kept the guest on the patio entertained with some photo fun. Too bad the owl could’t stick around for the photo booth!

Take a peak at this incredible wedding at the Filter Building in Dallas!

Bring the rain! A Rustic Rainy wedding.

Rain on your wedding day isn’t on the schedule. It isn’t in the dreams. But it sure makes for some amazing photos! Ryan and Kelsey had a rainy wedding out at Rustic Grace Estate. The good news…the rain let up enough so we could run outside for a few shots at his gorgeous venue. Since Rustic Grace estate has finished construction on their new silos, it has been incredible to shot weddings out there. The space, the light, the industrial feel mixed with the rustic barn….it is all so amazing for photos. And even more amazing when it rains, because there is plenty of room to enjoy their indoor space and so many windows to still enjoy the beautiful pond & countryside even while stuck indoors.

Ryan and Kelsey are the kind of could that makes you feel like family. I had so much fun with them and their friends, it was as if I was invited to the wedding as a guest, not a wedding photographer. We laughed, joked, told stories, and just enjoyed spending time with this couple and their guests. You wouldn’t have even known it rained because there wasn’t much concern my this amazing couple. Rain or shine, there were their to celebrate, and that is exactly what they did. Getting photos outside was just the icing on the cake. Oh, and even more icing on the cake was when the owner called the horses up to the fence so Kelsey, who rides horses, could get a few photos with their horses.

Here is a little preview of their wedding…enjoy!
