The Chateau on 5th

McAllen, Texas Engagement Session

Glamorous! Stephanie walked in with a gold sequin dress giving off that old Hollywood vibe and I’m all for it! She looked absolutely stunning and Marco perfectly complemented her as he took her hand. The Chateau on 5th was the perfect backdrop for this duo. It has beautiful gold accents and the stunning chandeliers that make your jaw drop.

Stephanie and Marco have had a few hiccups in their wedding planning and barely had the chance to get their engagement session done 1 week before their wedding! But they take everything in stride and are SO SWEET! The way they looked at each other made it clear that they are ready to call each other husband and wife!

I can’t wait for Friday when you get to start your new journey together. Thank you for letting me capture this special time in your life!

Big hugs and lots of love

    Hello, I have seen several pictures taken at this place, is this your place or so they rent it out for photo sessions?

      Hi Patty! It’s such a pretty location, isn’t it?! It actually belongs to a private owner who rents it out for photoshoots. You can find her on IG and reach out if you’re interested! @chateauonfifth
