Country Home Weddings in Canyon, TX | Mark + Mackenzie

This wedding at Country Home Weddings was one of the sweetest and joyful weddings I’ve gotten to be a part of.

It was a hot and humid day in August, but the clouds from an upcoming storm added some much-needed coolness. Country Home Weddings is such a beautiful venue in Canyon, Texas. The yard had just the most beautiful natural greenery, and gorgeous white structures. When I found Mackenzie in the bridal suite, it seriously felt like seeing an old friend on her wedding day. Mackenzie had the most care-free and chill spirit I think I’ve ever seen a bride have! She was just so excited to get married and was enjoying her time getting ready with the girls.

Now the way these two ended up together seems like an absolute miracle to me.

Mackenzie grew up in a small town right outside Amarillo. She was planning on staying there while continuing classes for a few years after one of her internships ended. Out of nowhere, she was offered a job in North Carolina with a scholarship and everything! On her second day in North Carolina, she met Mark. How insane is that?! They both were working at the church they attended and met at an event one night. Mackenzie said the second they saw each other they knew something was up. She told me, “But that was what was so sweet about meeting Mark. I wasn’t expecting him, and I didn’t even realize how much I needed someone like him until we met and started dating.” Talk about the sweetest and most out-of-nowhere connection! It was truly meant to be with these two.

I had a few distinct favorite moments during this day at Country Home Weddings.

  1. The daddy-daughter first look was one of the absolute sweetest moments ever. Mackenzie’s dad broke down as soon as he saw her. You could clearly see the pride and adoration he had for his daughter, and she couldn’t hold it together either.
  2. The letter-readings. Both Mark and Mackenzie each individually read the letters their soon-to-be-spouse wrote for them for that day. It was so sweet to watch the anticipation grow and see how deeply these two loved each other and hear what they envisioned for their lives. I can’t believe I get to witness moments like these.
  3. The not-look-first-look was so precious! It took all of us to make sure they didn’t see each other, but it worked out perfectly. They held hands and prayed together, and it was such an intimate moment.
  4. The ceremony! Country Home Weddings has their indoor ceilings completely covered in lights, which made for such a dreamy setting. The officiant said words that were meaningful to both of them, and Mackenzie’s mom just couldn’t hold it together! It was such a beautiful ceremony.
  5. There wasn’t much of a sunset due to the clouds, but I loved sneaking Mark and Mackenzie away from their reception for a couple more portraits. It was still beautiful lighting, and we ventured to the field right outside the venue. Absolutely magical!

All in all, it was the perfect day with the perfect couple at Country Home Weddings in Canyon, TX.

I’m so grateful these two found me and chose me to capture one of the most important days in their lives! Mostly, I’m just happy two make two new friends with the purest and kindest hearts. I know their only desire is to honor God with their marriage, and it is just a beautiful thing to see. Mackenzie and Mark, you two are amazing and I’m so happy you two found each other!!
