Leigh & Evan – Wedding Reception at Fort Worth ClubFort Worth, Texas

I love the party – after a day full of emotion and excitement it all comes down to a big celebration!  This party was pretty phenomenal – with gorgeous floral from Branching Out Events and a killer band brought in from Atlanta, Jessie’s Girls, it was top of the charts!  Leigh and Evan were inseparable all night – dancing close, laughing and visiting with their friends and family.  Not sure there are even words for how much fun we all had!  Just browse on and you will know that this is a night no one will forget!

This wedding was perfect in every way thanks to an amazing vendor team:

Jacy & Sam – Wedding Reception at The Tribute Golf ClubThe Colony, Texas

Look at that yummy golden hour light!  Could I ask for more?  I think not!  After Jacy and Sam said I do we pretty much had the most perfect sunset light to explore a little bit around the Tribute’s golf course.  The course views and the sliver of the lake in the background paired with these two made for a very happy photographer – this girl!!!  Sam is so sweet to Jacy and since I hadn’t met him until the wedding day this was my first opportunity to see them together.  As the sun finally set it was time to party though and we headed in for a night of dinner, dancing and allot of partying! Jacy and Sam hit the dance floor and spent quality time catching up with their friends, laughing and mingling with guests.  I loved their bubble gun exit – SOOO many bubbles!!!!

Huge thank you to all the vendors who helped make this day so perfect for Jacy, Sam and their families:

Abbey & Andrew – Wedding Reception at The Ashton DepotFort Worth, Texas

When you put a gorgeous couple at the Ashton Depot you really can’t go wrong and this night was amazing.  The team with Out of the Garden filled the space with beautiful tall centerpieces that had so much texture and interesting shapes.  The room was color washed and the ceiling had a patterned gobo to really make the depot look full and vibrant!  As the guests arrived they enjoyed cocktails on the tented patio with passed appetizers  and lounge furniture.

As the band announced the bridal party the anticipation built and when the Mr. & Mrs. where finally called into the room everyone stood and applauded as they took to the dance floor for their first dance.  Abbey and Andrew could not have been smiling bigger as they held each other close and Andrew spinned and dipped his new wife!  We jumped right into dances with Mom and Dad before settling into a fabulous dinner by The Ashton Depot.  During toasts everyone laughed at the silly stories and sweet words of their bridal party and Abbey’s Dad.  I love watching the parents during toasts and I captured Abbey’s parents being oh so sweet to one another.  🙂

Then it was PARTY time!  Drinks in the air, jumping and dancing and cutting up on the dance floor!  The Downtown Fever Band led everyone on night that was jam packed with fun.  I am sure many feet were aching when it was time to depart.  As guests lit sparklers Abbey & Andrew enjoyed a private last dance.  One last moment in their wedding reception before dashing off to their vintage limo.

I am lucky to have such gorgeous and kind clients and even more so that they select such great vendors to work along side:

Patti & Jerry – Abilene Country Club WeddingAbilene, Texas

Patti & Gerry’s wedding weekend was adorable and filled with family! These two love to laugh and their families are very important to them. For this wedding we focused on their gorgeous granddaughters and handsome grandsons who played “bridal party”. Definitely the most adorable bridal party I have ever photographed.
 
When together you can just see how much Patti & Gerry enjoy living life together. Patti is a stylish woman with a boisterous sprit and a love for parties! For their wedding celebration she along with the help of her God Daughter – Caroline – planned a weekend full of laughter, beautiful floral and lots of fun. I adored the lush winter color palette in reds, pinks and greenery. Patti’s Monique Lhuillier gown was dreamy with lightly dusted crystals and a flowing skirt. Gerry is planning their future trips and adventures with an RV lifestyle so for his grooms cake Creme de la Creme created a cool RV replica complete with mini Patti & Gerry’s!
 
So thankful I was able to get to know these families and be a part of their celebration!
Shout out to all the vendors who made the wedding weekend so beautiful and some (like me) made the drive from Dallas Fort Worth to Abilene to make everything perfect for Patti & Gerry:

Caitlin & Jordan – Wedding Reception at the Dallas Petroleum ClubDallas, Texas

Caitlin & Jordan’s Dallas Petroleum Club wedding reception was fun filled and beautiful!  Caitlin knows what she likes and I could feel her aesthetic throughout her ballroom decor.  Her florist, Bryan Long, brought her vision to life with dripping flowers from the chandeliers and large scale topiaries mixed with lower lush pieces.  Along with candlelight, seating vignettes and lighting the space was warm, inviting and elegant.  From the first dance to the last dance these two were so fun to capture smile, laugh and dance with their family and friends.  Above for their private last dance I pulled them off the dance floor and into the  middle of their ballroom so we could not only capture their extreme cuteness but the feeling of the space they created.

Caitlin & Jordan – I love you guys.  Thanks for being so gracious, kind and friendly to me and my team.  You made us feel important and that connection led to lots of happy tears and smiles behind my camera.  Thanks for being the last of 2016 and setting the tone so well going into next year.  I know God has great things for you both!

Laura & David – Wedding Reception at Classic Oaks RanchMansfield, Texas

Lightly Photography 2016

Laura & David have a great love story. Their wedding day is a perfect picture of them and it was filled with such beautiful moments.  During their wedding reception at Classic Oaks we had a blast!  When they descended the grand staircase into their first dance you could feel their love and it pretty much never stopped.  Hearing their parents and friends toast them you could see the intimacy of their relationships but what I heard over and over was what good people Laura & David are.  They were described by every person close to them as kind, compassionate, giving, serving and pretty funny too.  I think these two have a great future ahead of them if they love each other like their families described them they can’t fail.  After some yummy eats and sweets it was time to hit the dance floor!  David and Laura – thank you so much for allowing me to be with you.  I am so happy that I was able to hear and see your love!

Weddings come together for my couples with fabulous teams of people, pulled together to make their vision come to life.  Thanks to Laura & David’s Vendors!

Emilee & Jeff – Wedding Reception at the Modern Art MuseumFort Worth, Texas

Tracy Autem 2015

These two – swoon!  This painting so perfectly explains them – they may have opted for a classic and elegant black and white color palette but Emilee & Jeff have such colorful personalities and when they are together they are so much in balance – just like this artwork!

During their wedding reception at The Modern Art museum in Fort Worth everyone had a ton of fun!  The grand hall was beautiful with tall white topiary floral with a mixture of low centerpieces accented by silver and clean lined black chivari chairs.  The statement in the room was the dance floor though – the custom black and white dance floor by DFW Dance Floors was cool and really brought the room together.  As the couple walked the catwalk and entered the reception by the grand stair case they went straight into their first dance.  Jeff held Emilie close and embraced her with his hands on her face as they shared that first dane as though they were the only ones in the room.  After dinner and some toasts that brought everyone to laughter (and a few tears) it was time to party!

I am so excited for what the future holds for you two – Emilee and Jeff – Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your journey.  I loved every moment with you and was inspired by your love for each other and all those around you.  Congrats!

-Tracy

Colleen & Frank – Wedding in Lewisville and Reception at The Ashton DepotFort Worth, Texas

Tracy Autem 2015

Colleen & Frank have been dating for 2 years.  These two met and quickly fell in love. Their quirky and brainy personalities are such a perfect match and you can really see how they complete each other.  The love to travel, their dogs and enjoy spending time together caring for their family and friends.  Throughout their wedding day I could see the strong passion they have for others and placing people before themselves.  They are kind and full of love for each other too.  🙂

 

For their wedding we started the day at Colleen’s childhood home in Lewisville before their wedding at St Phillip’s Catholic Church – where she attended as a child and teen.  They exchanged gifts before the wedding and Frank’s awesome Dr. Who cufflinks were so fun and perfectly him!  Frank gave Colleen a jewelry box (and some jewelry of course) but what caught me was his instructions and help so that she would know how to open the box just right.  During the ceremony  there were lots of smiles and laughs and it was all sealed with a kiss – poor Frank was left with a little reminder of that kiss but Colleen lovingly wiped the lipstick from his face before the were pronounced man and wife.

 

After the wedding ceremony we headed to the Fort Worth Stockyards for some fun romantic photos of the couple and bridesmaids and groomsmen.  The rustic nature area (above) is so pretty and perfect for some images of the two alone before some more fun pics in the stockyards station.  We got there right as the cows were walking the streets for their daily cattle drive and had to jump into the road for some pics with the historic signage.

 

At the Depot a beautiful and lush floral filled room awaited the couple for their party.  The night was filled with great toasts, sweet dances, fun, laughter and some delicious bites!  It was such a fun night and I was so happy to be with them.  Thank you for trusting us to be part of your day and I am so excited for all the future holds for you.

 

Huge shout out to all the vendors that made Colleen & Frank’s day so amazing:

Charissa & Damon – Wedding Ceremony & Reception at City Club Fort Worth

Lightly Photography 2016

Charissa & Damon had a beautiful wedding at City Club of Fort Worth and I am so excited to finally share!  These two met over 6 years ago and through their courtship they have enjoyed lots of fun, sporting events and growing together as a team.  Now they are on to life’s next adventure – as husband and wife!

We met up with this adorable couple at City Club where they spent their day from getting ready, the ceremony and the reception.  Charissa and her girls were glammed by the Beauty and the Blush hair and makeup team.  Charissa looked stunning with her classic undo and clean lined ball gown dress.  I was completely smitten with the bodice and the ribbon detailing on the bottom.  It reminded me of a 50’s starlet on the red carpet!  Damon and his guys hung out and helped him keep calm leading up to the ceremony.

After their ceremony we slipped out onto the balcony for some fun night time shots with the city lights behind them before spending the rest of the night on the dance floor!  Damon is all smiles when he has his arms wrapped around his wife and it was so sweet watching them together.  We had such a great time celebrating with them!

This day was made perfect with a fabulous vendor team:

Britny & Aman – Wedding Reception at Mckinney Cotton Mill

Lightly Photography 2016

SOOO in love with these romantic images from Britny & Aman’s wedding.  Fall and Winter weddings pose lighting challenges so to ensure this couple had beautiful daylight images we whisked these two away from their ceremony for an intense 15 minutes stealing every moment of the days last light.  It was pretty phenomenal and I just adore the results.  We captured this soft moment in the warehouses at the Mckinney Cotton Mill.

The reception hall at the Cotton Mill was gorgeous with tall topiary floral and low textured pieces that were accented by lighting and linens.  The sweetheart table stood out with special vintage rental seating.  The soft touches and color palette in corals, soft pinks with whites and greens and a touch of gold worked so well in the space.  As Britny & Aman entered everyone came to their feet and cheered them on as they kicked off the night with their first dance.  The night was full of fun, dancing and dollar bills flying in the air!  The traditions and music of Aman’s family culture kept everyone in high spirits.

You two – thank you times a million.  It meant so much to me to share in your day, to see your happiness complete and full in one another.  I am so excited to see what the future brings you both!

Huge thanks to all the vendors who made Britny & Aman’s beautiful wedding reception so perfect and fun filled!
