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

wedding-nuvo-room-dallas-tracy-autem-photography-043

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!)

Nicole & Kyle – Wedding Ceremony at Perkins ChapelSMU, Dallas

Lightly Photography 2016

Nicole and Kyle and their families are super sweet and fun.  I was so excited to FINALLY get to photograph their Dallas wedding!  I love the new and recently renovated suites at the Adolphus where Nicole and her bridesmaids got ready – they were gorgeous rooms with so much space for the ladies to have fun and get pampered.  For their first look we used the suites downtown viewed balcony – it was so perfect and made for a unique and gorgeous backdrop!  As we arrived at Souther Methodist University (SMU) for Nicole & Kyle’s ceremony we got to take advantage of the beautiful outdoor spaces in front of Perkins Chapel.  Nicole’s parents were married at the same chapel!

Check back tomorrow for more fun and pretty images!

Katie & Jason – First Look at The Omni HotelFort Worth, Texas

Lightly Photography 2016

Katie & Jason are so freaking adorable!  I mean, seriously!  Look at them!  Their first look brought tears to my eyes.  Standing in the garden at The Omni Fort Worth with Jason just waiting for Katie he was so excited.  When he could finally turn his reaction was priceless and what followed was great hugs and precious, tender moments. I am so glad I got to share in this special reveal with the two of them.  It was the perfect peaceful moment before their ceremony and reception.  Katie is gorgeous (I know Jason agrees!) and did you see her dress?  It is phenomenal, that back just makes my heart skip a beat.  LOVE!  Feast your eyes on all the pretty from their first sight and some romantics on the rooftop at The Omni Hotel!

Thanks so much to the amazing team of wedding vendors who made this day so pretty!

Kristen & Curtis – Mansion at Turtle Creek Weddinga Brunch wedding in Dallas, Tx

Tracy Autem 2015

Small intimate weddings are amazing.  I believe they are the perfect answer to for someone who wants little fuss but a beautiful day.  By cutting down your guests to just the essentials you can have the wedding of your dreams.  For Kristen & Curtis they had just that.  On a sunny Friday I spent a few hours with these two as they became a family.  Kristen rocked a fabulous blush pink frock that said wedding dress in all the right ways but was flawless with her skin and blonde hair.  Curtis was so paper in his blue suit.  Nerves were high and they were ready to see one another, we did their first look inside the Mansion at Turtle Creek above the restaurant on the stair case.  When Curtis turned to see her – aww – it was pretty sweet.  Then we played outside and took family photos before heading up to the terrace for a ceremony officiated by Marty with Love Notes.  During the ceremony little Kamdyn made sure she was part, dancing in the aisle, continuing her flower girl duties by throwing more petals and by joining herself to her new Step-Dad as he gave her a precious necklace and the officiant explained the significance of her Mommy’s new ring.

 

Thank you so much for allowing me to share in your intimate affair.  It was perfection!

Allie & Kane – Getting Ready & First LookRenaissance Worthington Hotel

Tracy Autem Photography 2014 http://tracyautem.com

I think that this reaction is exactly what pretty much every girl hopes for.  Kane was SO ready to see Allie, and she was ready to.  Just before I had him turn around she was getting teary eyed with anticipation.  He was bouncing with excitement.  Hands down my favorite part of my job – the gut reaction of seeing his bride!  This one amazing part of this day is just the icing on the cake as the entire day pretty much rocked.  I don’t think there was a single thing that wasn’t perfect!

 

Before the big reveal Allie & Kane prepared for their day in their suites at the Renaissance Worthington Hotel in downtown Fort Worth.  Allie and her bridesmaids played on the balcony, got all prettied up by the hair and makeup team and had us all laughing.  Kane and his gentlemen cut up and had fun together and he even tried on his spurs that were a gift at the rehearsal dinner the night before.

 

Check back tomorrow for more!  This one was a long 12 hour day with so many photo ops so it will be several posts.  🙂  Lots of photo goodness!

Meredith & Michael – Wedding Ceremony at Preston Hollow Church Dallas

Tracy Autem 2015

This day was pretty top notch – these two and their families are so sweet and loving.  They made my team and I feel like we were part of the family and it was a complete pleasure to share this day with them.

 

We met up with Meredith and her ladies at her parents home to hang out and prepare for the wedding.  Meredith has a beautiful group of friends and they looked gorgeous in their floor length black bella bridesmaids dresses.  After hanging at home it was off to Preston Hollow Presbyterian where we turned up the emotion as Meredith dressed in her gown and shared some sweet moments with her parents.  Her Daddy’s face when he saw his daughter, as a bride, just had me teary and then when they gathered to gather to give her a special wedding day present I lost it.  Every girl loves a blue jewelry box but a tiffany’s pearl necklace on your wedding day is more than a gift – it is a keepsake, an heriloom that some day her little girl may wear on her own wedding day.  So perfect!

 

Michael and the guys were hanging at his home for some classic goofing off guy style before heading to the church where he anxiously awaited seeing his bride.  His back turned, Meredith walked down the aisle to him and when he turned to see her…..wow.  These two are totally love and I could see the stress and anxiety melt as they were finally together.  It was so sweet to hear them catch up, check out each other’s duds and give some really big hugs.  It was a super cold day for their wedding but we got lucky with no rain for a brief moment to head outside for a few romantic portraits of the couple.

 

As the sun went down, the bagpiper played to welcome their guest and the church sanctuary filled.  When the doors opened Michael cried (a little) and Meredith looked perfect in every way.  🙂

No wedding would be complete without a well thought out team of vendors:
