Laura and Omar | Magnolia Grace Ranch Winter Wedding

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:

David and Priscilla | Stone Crest Wedding, take 3

Priscilla and David had perseverance when planning their wedding through the covid pandemic. 
They rescheduled 3 times as they tried their hardest for their international family to be able to celebrate with them. Despite their best efforts, they ended up having to move forward without everyone in attendance. A pandemic that was ongoing and international travel made this a really hard decision. But they were able to finally get married! And that is something to celebrate. 

The had their wedding at Stone Crest Venue in McKinney. Though much smaller than they planned and much later than they planned, it happened! And for those who could make it, it was a celebration to remember! They did it! It was a beautiful wedding. And the vision they had for the wedding came to reality at Stone Crest! Congrats to these two!

Colton and Whitney’s Summer Wedding at the Springs McKinney

The summer heat didn’t stop Whitney and Colton from the outdoor wedding they dreamed of at The Springs in McKinney. It is always fun to be around couples whose love shines and they are just happy to get married! The wedding isn’t the end…it is the means to marriage. And you could tell that these two cared deeply about each other! 

It began with an outdoor summer wedding officiated by the bride’s step dad. We only had a few minutes before the tears began to flow. Everything about this wedding showed how much everyone cared about them. Following the first kiss they headed indoors for the reception at Stone Hall. There was drinks, dancing, food, and fun. The genuine joy on everyone’s face was something I will remember. Here is a preview of their day at The Springs
