Tiffany and Doug had a fun, intimate wedding on a beautiful Spring day at the McKinney Cotton Mill. These two came home from Jackson, Mississippi to tie the knot in North Texas with friends and family. Tiffany started off getting ready at the McKinney Bed and Breakfast. She had the most amazing blue Oscar De La Renta shoes and beautiful Hayley Paige dress. Tiffany’s dad got to see her for the first time there. Everyone then headed to the Mckinney Cotton Mill for Doug’s first look.
A lot of the Cotton Mill is a factory ruin. We found a nice back area with light streaming in from one side and creating striking shadows. Afterwards, Tiffany and Doug’s ceremony took place in the courtyard area. They said their vows under arch of greenery.
After the ceremony, everyone moved to the reception area. It was full of games and floral centerpieces. Everyone enjoyed partying with the newlyweds until it was time to send them on their way. As big Dallas Stars hockey fans, it was only right that hockey sticks were in the grand exit. Tiffany and Doug left the McKinney Cotton Mill in a vintage car to start their journey as husband and wife.
McKinney Cotton Mill
The McKinney Cotton Mill is about the most perfect rustic venue around. It’s full of aged walls and weathered brick. It still has all the modern facilities you’ll need on your wedding day. If you are a couple who loves the look of old time Texas downtowns and alleyways, you can’t miss it. In fact, its easy to imagine the venue itself overwhelming any wedding decor or design. That’s something to keep in mind with any venue that has such strong character. If your ideas compliment the structure it can create something pretty spectacular.
Every wedding I’ve been to at The McKinney Cotton Mill has been a great experience. It’s located off of beautiful downtown McKinney. The city has lots of great restaurants, places to stay, and easy to get to. The layout is sprawling and gives many options to create your own vision. There are many unique photo opportunities as well.
The outdoor options are great for ceremonies, lounging, or cocktail hour. It also has places for lounge or cocktail hour when the weather is nice. The main structure is a versatile area that is large enough to host a bunch of guests. It won’t feel too big for smaller weddings like the one pictured here either. The aesthetics of The McKinney Cotton Mill is a mix of industrial brick and weathered wood. The McKinney Cotton Mill has a lot to offer the couple who has lots of vision.
I had such a great time getting to know this amazing couple and their wonderful friends and family. I would love the opportunity to connect with you and tell your story. If you would like to learn more about me and my work, or if you are thinking of getting married at the McKinney Cotton Mill outside Dallas, please say hi!
