Megan – Bridal Portraits at Chandor GardensWeatherford, Texas

Megan was a GORGEOUS bride and as her wedding just hit the newsstands in the newest Brides of North Texas Magazine I thought it was perfect timing to share her garden bridal session from last summer.  Megan is a sweetie and oh so fun to be around – her dress definitely showed off her personality with it sweet and sparkly detailing and volume filled skirt with attitude!  This  mixture of classic and modern clean lines complimented her wedding to Dylan at Robert Carr Chapel on the TCU campus with a reception at The Modern Art Museum.  The open back dress with sparkly straps was purchased at Nordstrom Wedding Suite.

Tracy Autem & Lightly Photography 2014

 

Becca & Drew’s wedding is just months away and will be my first wedding of 2015 and I can’t wait!  This couple will be having a fabulous winter wonderland wedding at The Colonial Country Club and I know it is going to be gorgeous.  I love this classic and timeless taste that Becca has for both her wedding day decor and her own look.  Becca and Drew went for attire that will never go out of style for their engagement session at Chandor Gardens in Weatherford.  It is one of my all time favorite locations for sessions – always great light, fabulous greenery and makes for perfect photos!  These two met through mutual friends and I can tell they just click!  I will see you both so soon!

Ali – Bridal Portraits at Chandor Gardens in Weatherford

Tracy Autem & Lightly Photography 2014

Ali & Brent were married 2 weeks ago so at long last here are her Chandor Gardens bridal portraits!  I love this location, even in the summer heat this garden sports some beautiful light and shade during the early morning hours making it perfect for her elegant and classic photo shoot. Ali found her dress and all her accessories at Bliss Bridal.  Her white bouquet was created by Tami Winn Events.  Beauty was pulled together by Jennifer Trotter of Lip Service Makeup and Renn Traylor Hair.  Alison made a stunning bride in her simple gown, her gorgeous smile and sweet personality made her a dream to work with.  Stay tuned for more form her wedding day.

Alex – Bridal Portraits at Chandor Gardens

Tracy Autem & Lightly Photography 2014 I have said it before but I will say it again – I love Chandor Gardens.  It has become one of my favorite locales and you can see from this beautiful bridal portrait why.  Alex wanted something whimsical and light and the english styling of this garden fit to a T.  Alex looked beautiful with her hair by Renn Traylor and make up by Jennifer Trotter with Lip Service Makeup.  Her gown was purchased at Bliss Bridal in Fort Worth with bouquet provided by Blossoms on the bricks.  Alex is one of the sweetest girls I have ever met and she is truly a treasure to photograph.  Can’t wait to share her wedding later this week! -Tracy Autem       Tracy Autem & Lightly Photography 2014 Tracy Autem & Lightly Photography 2014 Tracy Autem & Lightly Photography 2014 Tracy Autem & Lightly Photography 2014 Tracy Autem & Lightly Photography 2014 Tracy Autem & Lightly Photography 2014 Tracy Autem & Lightly Photography 2014 Tracy Autem & Lightly Photography 2014 Tracy Autem & Lightly Photography 2014 Tracy Autem & Lightly Photography 2014

Bailey – Bridal Portraits at Chandor Gardens

Tracy Autem Photography 2013 http://tracyautem.com

I love the winter, in Texas weddings slow down and we find the time to rest before diving into another busy spring full of beautiful brides and emotion charged wedding days.  It is also gives me a chance to share some of my bridal portraits from our Fall brides.  Ms. Bailey was our last wedding for 2013 on Dec 28th at Ashton Gardens.  This west Texas girl brought her and Brandon’s family up to the big D for all their wedding festivities, it was a destination wedding in many ways.  For her bridal portraits we selected one of my favorite gardens, Chandor Gardens, in Weatherford.  It feels like an old English garden with greenery, architectural detailing (like this walkway above) and is just so serene, I could spend all day there!  Bailey’s dress was found at Bridal Boutique of Lewisville and her bright, bold purple bouquet was created by Lush Couture (one of my faves!)

Abby & Jeff – Engagement Portraits at Chandor Garden and Fall Trees

Abby and Jeff are pretty dang amazing.  I love them.  I knew from the moment I met this adorable couple that being a part of their wedding was going to be spectacular.  After some missteps and rescheduling due to weather and other issues we finally got together last week at Chandor Gardens in Weatherford and one of my favorite fields near by.  The gardens there are beautiful and so overlooked by many people, they are intimate and usually empty.  Bentley, their pup, joined us for a few photos and was wrangled by Abby’s Mom (Thanks Momma!)  Then we headed out to one of my favorite spots just down the road from the gardens – this field of trees is fall perfection right now with all the changing colors in the leaves.  It was pretty perfect and was rounded out with this gorgeous vintage sofa rented from Gold Dust Vintage.  Thanks guys and I can’t wait to see you both in April for your wedding at Robert Carr & The Modern!

Jennifer & Perry – Engagement portraits in Weatherford and Chandor Gardens

Jennifer and Perry are getting hitched this coming fall at St Patricks Cathedral in downtown Fort Worth.  We completely hit it off when we met the first time so I was looking forward to hanging out with them at their Engagement.  When Perry walked up he greeted me with a big hug, yep, I like this guy.  I love groom’s that are excited about their wedding, their wife to be and photography!  I also adore that this couple went outside the box, they selected Chandor Gardens for their session.  A definite favorite of mine for bridal portraits but they are my first clients to ever choose it for engagements!  It is an awesome location for any type of photography.  We enjoyed the gardens before heading to a few other spots I like in Weatherford and then got their fur children involved (they have 3 precious doggies).  It was perfect and we finished up right as some storm clouds were rolling in!  Thanks guys for hanging out with me, see you soon!

Nikki {Model Bride} Chandor Gardens in Weatherford

Nikki was married earlier this year at Graystone Castle out in West Texas in a tiny town called Thurber Mingus.  For her wedding she wore a Bliss Bridal Gown with small floral appliques on the bodice.  I adored her birdcage veil and feather fascinator.  We photographed her bridal portraits at Chandor Gardens in Weatherford.  It is the perfect location if you want the feeling of an old English garden.
