Chelsey and Joshua Mullins | Chapel at Chestnut Square in McKinney, Texas

The Chapel at Chestnut Square

At the start of the 18th hour on August 10th, Chelsey and Joshua leapt into the next chapter of their lives in a beautiful vintage ceremony in the Chapel at Chestnut Square in McKinney, Texas. Skys the Limit Production was there to record and frame each precious moment.

Nearly 13 years ago love found a resting place between these two in perhaps, one of the unlikeliest places, a brand-new restaurant in Rockwall on the harbor. Neither of them could have predicted that their budding friendship would eventually lead them down the aisle.

With Joshua’s two daughters and Chelsey’s two sons, the two joined forming a modern-day Brady Bunch, just as sweet as fiction. The night before they were to officially adopt the title of homeowners, Joshua surprised Chelsey with a question of forever on his lips on the steps of that house, ensuring that this new page had a glorious start.

Chapel at Chestnut Square

The Chapel at Chestnut Square offered itself as an excellent representation of this lovely couple. It provided all the elements of a classic wedding ceremony with the sprinklings of new traditions specific to their new union.

Joshua couldn’t hold his tears at bay as the large dark wood doors of the chapel opened to reveal his bride, wearing an elegant creamy white, sleeveless sequined gown, as she took her first steps toward their forever. He stood, with an anxious calm in a white- collar shirt with his sleeves rolled up, covered in a simple four button dark grey vest and pants. With one hand resting over the other, his leg shook as he prepared to take her hand into his own. There was not a dry eye in sight as friends and family alike, witnessed their commitment take shape in front of their very eyes.

Once their “I Do’s were exchanged the newlyweds, along with their guests, ventured out of the chapel and into the reception area. Smiles were radiating light from all around with tears of joy to match. Guests took their time to write notes, pose for pictures, and keepsakes, to wish the couple well until daylight started to retreat.

With the certificate signed, the bouquet tossed, the toasts concluded, the couple took to the stone floor of the wooden gazebo, urging others to join as they fervently danced the night away.

Jamie and Chris Allen | Donna Bella Chapel in McKinney, TX

A happily ever after wedding with a touch of New Orleans

When Jamie first got in touch with me about their fairy tale dream wedding coming true in McKinney, I was so excited – they were planning a jumping the broom tradition, a live band from Louisiana and a beautiful candlelit reception! Jamie and Chris seemed like the loveliest people and I couldn’t wait to video their wedding!

Getting Ready

I was surprised by a bottle of wine from the bride herself when I arrived to capture her and her bridesmaids. They were getting ready in the Sanctuary music and events building. Along with Jamie’s gorgeous dress, she wore the cutest cheetah heels and Chris wore a dark suit with a classic tie. The two exchanged gifts and letters to each other and allowed me to record the special moment separately on camera.

Ceremony

The wedding took place at the Bella Donna Chapel, and it was a romantic ceremony. The bride and groom went with traditional, and waited to see each other down the aisle. The couple combined the small flames from their family’s candles into one. They each wrote their own touching vows.

When the time came to kiss the bride, the bride helped herself on kissing the groom before the pastor could finish his sentence; it was hilarious, but so sweet at the same time! After the ceremony, they jumped the broom and the crowd applauded. Everyone joined outside as the newlyweds rang the church’s bells announcing their news to the world!

Reception

The wedding reception took place at the Sanctuary music and events hall, which they’d decorated with candlelight and photos. It was a charming sight.

During the reception they had a live band come out all the way from Louisiana, which you could tell everyone loved by the wave of white handkerchiefs all over the place. After the meal there were a few speeches as well as a few tears! The DJ then kicked off the party and everyone danced in the center of the venue with the newly weds.

The couple

Jamie and Chris met through Instagram. Chris proposed to Jamie on New Years Eve in Downtown Dallas in front of the Reunion Tower-watching the Fireworks. Jamie was trying to record the fireworks when they were counting down to the new year; when the number landed on one, Jamie turned around and saw Chris was on one knee.

Here’s the couple’s magical wedding!

Alicia and James Bowles | River Road Chateau in Anna, Texas

On March 21st, during a sunny Thursday afternoon, Alicia and James got married at the lovely River Road Chateau, which is a Texas chic venue in Anna. Skys the Limit Production captured the couple’s perfect day on video.

The ceremony was a beautiful service under the venue’s iconic chandelier, and the reception was held in the rustic ballroom, and it was a plum and spring inspired wedding. Mr. & Mrs. Bowles had lots of cake in the afternoon, and an intimate family dinner in the evening, and they finished off the night with lots of dancing.
