McKinney Cotton Mill Wedding | Amanda + Mike

I had the privilege to capture the wedding of Amanda and Micheal McNeil or better known by family and friends as Mike or Mikey.

The two married on December 9th, 2017 at the beautiful McKinney Cotton Mill in McKinney, TX. I have to say this was one of my top five favorite weddings I have done in my career. It comes down to just three things. ONE. The couple; Amanda and Mike are not only fun and down to earth, they are very comfortable with each other and their love just shines. Two. The venue and decor; The McKinney Cotton Mill, boasts several absolutely stunning rustic, yet elegant locations to host the perfect wedding. I dare say it is one of the most unique venues in North Texas. Apart from the beautiful venue, they chose cardinal red and grey as their wedding colors as tribute to Amanda’s alma mater (The University of Arkansas) and paired it with absolutely stunning floral and greenery. Every single detail down to the matching groomsmen shoes was just over the top and gorgeous; I think you will agree. Three. The Family & Guests. Every wedding has its characters.. If you have been to more than a few weddings, you know what Im talking about. But seriously. Every single. person was, warm, inviting, and fun! Now GO. Check out Amanda and Mike’s amazing wedding day!
