I wanted to do a special spotlight on Chandler's Gardens, a McKinney wedding venue. I came across these images today and remembered how much I loved the outdoor setting and the gorgeous floating lantern send-off at the end.
Here are some of my favorite images from the beginning of the day. The bridal room at Chandler's Gardens is beautiful and I loved playing with the window lighting. We even had the chance to capture a sweet moment before the ceremony of the bride and groom holding hands through the open door frame. No peeking!
The Secret Garden here is so beautiful. The soft, gauzy light in the quiet clearing is the perfect setting for any bride wanting an outdoor wedding.
The sweeping views and the perfectly clouded sky gave us the chance for these twilight portraits, and a great shot of the whole venue at night.
This floating lantern send-off was incredible. Each family lit and released these glowing lanterns into the sky and we watched as they followed each other through the air in a swirling pattern before disappearing into the night.
