Dreamy DIY McKinney Flour Mill Wedding

Share this project

“Cameron and Sarah were married in an updated flour mill on March 16, 2018. They said they were both attracted to the drama, sense or urban and rustic vibe the venue gave off. The anniversary of when they first started dating was on August 15th, so they wanted to get as close to that date as they could for their wedding. Sarah really wanted her day to be cost efficient, and her mom and sister put together the majority of the details, making a lot of if DIY projects. ” –Lauren Bloom Photography

What is your favorite wedding day memory?

This is hard because I loved the entire experience. I loved getting ready with my bridal party and my mom. It was really nice to spend that quality time with the girls and prepare for the day. The ceremony was really special. My uncle was the officiant, so he was able to make it really personal for both of us. Everyone enjoyed that! I also loved the secret last dance we had at the end of the night. After everyone left we had the DJ play one last song for just two of us to savor the last moment of our wedding together as husband and wife. That was special.

What did you DIY for your wedding?

My family, friends and I all DIY’d a lot of the wedding. My sister helped me with the Save the dates. My good friend Katie designed the invitations, my friend Mallorie made the part of the bridesmaid gift {champagne flute}, my sister made the awesome flower letter “C” out of cardboard and flowers! I think one of my favorite things was the empty vintage frames from my great-grandma. We used them as the bar menu and the hashtag announcement. I found an old window at a market for only $7 and cleaned it up to make the program. My mom and I made some photo booth props and the sign at the entrance. I couldn’t have pulled it all together without the help of my family! We got the venue ready in record time thanks to the help of all my cousins, aunts and uncles.

Did you have something old, new borrowed and blue?

Old was my jewelry: My necklace and bracelet were made from the diamonds from my nanny’s rings. It was special to have her there with me in someway on that special day. New was my perfume that my husband had given me for a wedding gift. Borrowed was my mom’s veil from her wedding day. It was a gorgeous long veil with pearls all over and a cute lace and pearl headpiece. Blue was my mom’s tanzanite ring she had received as an anniversary gift. I even had a sixpence in my shoe my sister’s friend Mae had let me borrow.

Any advice for brides currently in the planning process?

Enjoy it! Looking back at it, it all goes by so quickly. Try not to get bogged down by all the little things and just enjoy the planning experience. Also, if you’re like me, it’s not always easy to ask for help. You’d be surprised at how willing everyone was to help when I finally asked! -Sarah, the Bride
