DVine Grace Vineyard Chapel Wedding – Larianna & Xavier

filed in


Larianna Varnado and Xavier Biles, a stunning couple, tied the knot on 3rd April on a beautiful day in one of my favorite venues- DVine Grace Vineyard. It is a luxurious Tuscan-style wedding & event venue in McKinney, Texas, on 20 pastoral acres of sprawling, lush greenery, grapevines, lush lawns, and water features. Guests will feel like they are in the heart of the Italian countryside, rather than just a few miles from Dallas. 

The couple chose DVine Grace graveyard chapel for the ceremony, which is a gorgeous location with exposed beams, wrought iron doors, delicate chandeliers, and a beautiful, whimsical turret. Outdoor vows are lovely here, too, in any one of the meticulously polished garden dwellings. The reception was held at the DVine grace vineyard ballroom. The two-story ballroom is sure to impress, with its grand staircase, wood floors, crystal chandeliers, and oversized windows both upstairs and down. As the sun begins to set, colored uplighting from the wall sconces adds a touch of drama.

Thus the venue was simply terrific. The wedding planner from Norman Houston Events 1911 did a marvellous job. It was a traditional Christian wedding. The embellishments corresponded incredibly with the white theme. Everyone swooned over the bride, a vision of elegance and grandeur, in a conventional white ensemble. The bridesmaids wore striking green evening gowns, while the groom wore a white coat with maroon pants, matching the bride’s father’s maroon tux. The groomsmen wore analogous blue tuxedos. The elegant location, floral arrangement, beautiful 4 tier cake, the wedding endorsements, the lovely bouquets, everything winded up to be foolproof. The ceremony started at 5 pm in the venue’s beautiful chapel. As Larianna arrived, her father traditionally escorted her down the aisle while Xavier addressed her at the altar. It was inaugurated with the exchanging of vows. 

I took pictures of the couple and their families until the reception started. This elegant venue had many locations to take pictures. My favorite spot was the gallery of the cupola, where we made stunning portraits of the couple. Another place I liked was the fountain niche. It was a dreamy place for a couple’s pictures. The reception commenced accordingly with the bride and grooms’ dance, the bride also danced with her father, and the groom danced with his sister.

Furthermore, the cake cutting ceremony was held. The wedding sentiments, extravaganzas, and dancing blathered on for the entire evening. I really liked some of their rituals in their wedding, like they reserved chairs for their loved ones who have passed away, and also dedicated a whole table to them with flowers and their pictures to remember them and feel their presence on their special day even when they are no longer with them. My favorite thing was how they hung glass slates around kids’ necks with the cutest memos written on them. Another thing I cherished was the coffee truck. It gave a cute touch to the location. 

Also, how can I forget the “make it rain” toy gun, which poured money and was a pure source of entertainment? Wrapping this special event and the candid moments for Mr and Mrs Biles had been thrilling for me. It was a day full of joy, amazement, glees, and enjoyment for all the guests. They also had a DJ to make the reception more fun. I think it’s safe to say that everything, from the gold-rimmed seats to the dinnerware, efflorescence, and candles placed on every table, contributed to the fineness of the wedding.

Larianna and Xavier’s had an unforgettable, incredibly beautiful wedding. We wish this couple a happy married life ahead and everlasting love.
