Christine & Andrew – Getting Ready & First Look at Winspear Opera HouseDallas, Texas

 

 

I just love this photo above!  I think it perfectly captures the joy and ease of this perfect wedding day!  After getting ready at a nearby hotel Christine & Andrew selected the arts district for their first look.  When he turned to see his bride they were full of smiles, a few tears and big hugs!  As we walked to the reflection pool outside of the Winspear these two were just laughing, talking and enjoying each other.  It is exactly what a wedding day should be like!  Thank you to all the other vendors who made this day stress free for Christine and Andrew so they could laugh and enjoy their wedding:

Jacqueline & Matt – Wedding Preparations & First Look at Omni HotelFort Worth, Texas

 

Jacqueline and Matt met while in college in Tulsa, Oklahoma and now they are married!

 

Jacqueline and her bridesmaids prepped for the big day in a suite at the Omni Hotel in Fort Worth.  The girls had a blast listening to tunes, chatting and taking photos as they waited anxiously for the ceremony.  Jacqueline’s dress was amazing with layered bold lace and an elegant silhouette.  There was so much joy as she dressed and slipped into her special blue heels for her something blue!  Matt met us on the rooftop for his first look at his bride.  When he turned his jaw dropped – she was truly gorgeous!  I loved that they both were so happy, embracing and relieved to finally be together.

 

After a few romantic photos we headed over to TCU for their wedding!

Bethany & Tyler – Wedding First Look and Wedding Party PortraitsTrinity Park, Fort Worth

Look at how cute and excited these two were to finally see each other!  Bethany knew she wanted a location that was green and lush for her first sight with Tyler.  We selected Trinity Park for just that reason and it was gorgeous!  Right before he turned I asked him what he thought her dress might look like and he may have been a little off on his expectations but he was not disappointed when he turned to see Bethany.  After some photos of the two of them alone they were joined by their bridesmaids and groomsmen for wedding party photos.

Shelby & Whilden – First United Methodist ChurchCeremony and First Look

Shelby and Whilden are the cutest!  These two were so excited to get married and they could not wait to see each other.  Whilden was anxious but when he walked out of the door of the First United Methodist Church you could see it all melt away.  Shelby was all smiles to finally be beside her groom!  After some beautiful photos outside of the church with family and friends these two said I do in the main sanctuary.

Allison & Allen – First Look and Romantic PortraitsOmni Hotel & Marty Leonard Chapel

Allison and Allen chose to see each other before their ceremony at Marty Leonard Chapel.  Allen awaited to turn and see his bride at The Omni Hotel in Fort Worth.  As he finally turned and saw Allison in her classically tailored and sleek gown you could see they were both so happy to be together.  They decided to read the letters they had written one another for the wedding day together before taking some romantic portraits on site and at the chapel.

Leigh & Evan – Wedding First Look at FUMC CourtyardFort Worth, Texas

This first look had me crying!  When Evan walked out the door to see his bride, Leigh, he was all smiles and they immediately embraced.  First looks are the best!  They shared sweet moments together and Leigh showed off her stunning illusion back dress before they exchanged gifts.  Evan gave her a beautiful jewelry box so that over the years to come she can keep all the future gifts he might give her safe.  Leigh had been writing notes to him in a  journal for 2 years!  That book along with some stunning cuff links were her gift to him.  We also took advantage of the gorgeous architecture around the church and photographed these two alone.

Caitlin & Jordan – First Look & Portraits at The Mansion on Turtle CreekDallas, Texas

I can’t even – I mean – ahhhh.  This first look is beyond perfect.  We met up at The Mansion on Turtle Creek where we had Caitlin & Jordan see each other on the balcony of the hotel.  Gorgeous fall day and a couple that looks this good and just melts into each other.  There could not have been a better way to end my 2016 Weddings!  When Jordan turned both of them were jaw dropping excited to see each other.  She sweetly showed off her dress and they embraced and snuggled up together.  These photos are why I love first looks – all the emotion and pretty rolled into one amazing moment!  After we used photographed their family, bridal party and romantic portraits at this classic Rosewood Hotel property.  I love the architecture, the green scapes and even the sidewalk there – I don’t think you can select a more iconic Dallas hotel location for photography.  Enjoy all the pretty and as always thanks to the vendors who made it all possible:

Megan & Dylan – First Look & PortraitsWedding Day in Fort Worth

Lightly Photography 2016

Just look at that!  See!  I am in love with this day and all the feelings that just bubbled over from start to finish.  Megan and Dylan chose to see each other before their TCU Robert Carr Chapel wedding ceremony.  We set up Dylan on the deck at The Omni Hotel Fort Worth as he awaited his bride.  He was so ready to see her and just before he turned around to see Megan I asked him what he thought her dress looked like, he nailed it!  Dylan knows his sweet Megan well, he said her gown was big and sparkly.  🙂 Love that!  When he turned these two both just burst out in tears of joy – their day had finally arrived!!!

After some emotion, hugging it out and catching up on their day we took some romantic portraits before heading over to the Kimbell Art Museum with the bridesmaids and groomsmen for some fun photo ops.  The clean lines and bright light colors of the architecture outside there perfectly balanced the reception space at The Modern Art Museum.  I really could just photograph these two for hours alone – they were so adorable.  But, they kind of needed to get to the chapel and get married so I had to let them go.

Jessica & Anthony – Getting Ready & Wedding First LookDallas Wedding

Jessica & Anthony have that head over heels, passionate, full of laughter and lots of kisses kind of love that girls dream of.  These two are seriously so much fun to photograph and it was so special to share their wedding day with them!  We met up at their hotel in Dallas for some getting ready before their first look.  It was HOT outside and these two were hot together too – from the moment Anthony turned around to see his bride he was glowing.  I can’t blame him – Jessica was gorgeous in her pink textured gown with a corset styled bodice.  Anthony looked so GQ too in his blue tailored suit.  We headed out to brave the temperatures at Addison Circle Park for some romantic portraits and bridesmaid and groomsmen photos.  Huge props to this entire bridal party for being up for anything, trusting me and the result is beautiful!  I’m swooning over here!

Sarah & David – Wedding Ceremony & First Look at Omni Hotel & Robert Carr ChapelFort Worth, Texas

Wedding Robert Carry Chapel TCU City Club Fort Worth Sarabeth Events Tracy Autem Photography-036

So absolutely in love with his day and this couple!  Sarah and David are sweet, genuine and so very kind to everyone around them.  I felt as though I was part of the family as I celebrated along side them and captured the most important day of their lives.  These two prepared for their wedding at The Omni Fort Worth before a first sight on the garden deck.  But before David could see Sarah – 1st she had to see her #1 man since birth – Daddy.  Her Father was all smiles seeing his little girl dressed in white and they both cried as she gave him a precious gift.  It was incredibly sweet.  She got out all the tears and was all smiles and laughter when she finally saw her groom.  Her dress was stunning and I know David agreed!

 

Upon arrival at Robert Carr Chapel at TCU (Texas Christian University) we did some final preparations and these two said I Do!  Their wedding rings were gorgeous in gold – so fun to see gold making a comeback in engagement rings and bands!

 

This day was pretty flawless and I have to say it was in part to an amazing team I got to work along side (Thanks Sarah & David for picking the best!)
