Caitlin & Jordan – Wedding Day PreparationsDallas, Texas

Can’t believe I have come to the end of my 2016 weddings!  To put a cherry on top of a fabulous year of amazing couples I ended with Caitlin & Jordan – a couple that is gorgeous, had AMAZING locations, a great vendor team and was perfect in every way.

We kicked off their day with preparations!  Caitlin had an emotionally charged getting ready as her Mommy & Sister helped her dress and she revealed her look to Daddy and opened gifts from Jordan.  So perfect!  This is just the beginning because I had to split this one up into 4 posts as they had 3 very different locations and a super fun and beautiful reception!

This wedding had some of my favorite vendors on site and we had so  much fun creating a beautiful day for Caitlin & Jordan:

Grit & Gold – Planning & Design

Wendy Zerrudo – Hair & Makeup

Laura & David – Wedding Ceremony at Classic Oaks Ranch

Lightly Photography 2016

I LOVE an emotional couple and Laura & David are like my dream clients – these two love each other and are not afraid to show it.  David is such a cutie – I mean – look at his reaction (above) as he watched his beautiful Laura walk down the aisle to him!  What more can you ask for in a man?  Well, that was just the start.  This loving man had sweet words and nice gestures all day for his beloved – it made me cry SO many times!!!  During the ceremony the vows they had for each other were heartfelt and true and during the ceremony David was SO excited to be marrying his bride he couldn’t stop talking.  He wasn’t afraid to speak up and say how beautiful she was, lucky he was and in love with her he was.  Their ceremony had me crying, smiling and with goose bumps!  Laura was so thoughtful in all she did – from fun custom boots for her groom to perfect gifts for all the parents.  During the ceremony and every time she was near him, she was just glowing.

It was a pretty amazing day!

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!

Courtney & Miles – Wedding Ceremony at First United Methodist ChurchFort Worth, Texas

Wedding First United Methodist Fort Worth Club Sarabeth Events Tracy Autem Photography-044

What an amazing and serene moment – these two were just so calm and cool as they embraced after their wedding.  Big smiles were also had but this quiet little moment between them just grabbed me.  Cortney & Miles are two of the nicest people – I mean this girl holds open doors for her wedding vendors and thanks us for being at her wedding!  Sweet and silly girl – I could not have been happier to be with you and couldn’t have imagined spending this day any other way!

 

We started their day at Fort Worth Club for preparations before heading to First United Methodist Church in downtown Fort Worth.  The church as deep meaning to the couple as Miles’ Mother is actually one of the on staff pastors.  She was smart though and played Mom of the Groom all day and left the marrying to her fellow pastors – she knew she would be a weeping mess if she had to marry them and I understand – that would be so hard!  We took advantage of the lovely courtyard at the church for pre-ceremony portraits of the family and bridesmaids and groomsmen before it was time to get married!

All the pretty was made at this wedding by one fabulously pulled together team!  Big shout out to each and every one of them:

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!

 

Thanks to the vendor team for making the day so beautiful:

Laura & Greg – Wedding Ceremony at Broadway Baptist Fort Worth

fort worth club wedding ceremony broadway baptist church tracy autem photogrpahy classic traditional timeless elegant luxury lush couture laura greg-51

Laura & Greg are just the sweetest.  I hadn’t gotten to meet Greg until the wedding day but the moment I walked in to the room he made me feel right at home with a warm smile and a great handshake.  I love my brides but the truth is that the groom’s are really the ones responsible for me falling head over heels for a couple.  Why?  Because when a man is a gentlemen, laid back, fun, caring and totally devoted in love with his bride that kicks them up a notch as a couple in my books.  🙂  While Sarah hung out with the boys I spent time with Laura and her lovely ladies as they dressed and got all prettied (check out those swooping backs on those bridesmaids gowns).  The BA Beauty & Styling Stewardess teams did a great job making each one of the ladies look fabulous – especially Greg’s grandma who had her makeup professionally applied for the first time in her life!  You are never to old for some pampering my friends!

 

As we arrived at Broadway Baptist it was time to slip Laura into her gorgeous gown with a fabulous corset inspired top and big full skirt with texture.  As all her friends watched Laura was all smiles and butterflies to see her groom.  Mom helped Laura with her finishing touches and held her hand before it was time to say I do.  Greg and his boys were all laughs and wore some pretty sweet pink socks.

 

Laura and her Daddy walked the aisle as Greg got a little teary seeing his bride walk towards him.  After a perfect little ceremony these two were married and we quickly snuck in some photos outside as the sun set.  It was pretty amazing.  Can’t wait to share all the fun of their Fort Worth Club reception tomorrow!

 

Laura and her Mom pulled together a pretty amazing team of vendors, thanks to everyone of you for making this day so fun and beautiful!

Bailey & Brandon – Wedding Ceremony at Ashton Gardens

Photo by Tracy Autem of Lightly Photography 2013 http://lightlyphoto.com

Bailey & Brandon’s wedding was the perfect way to seal the end of my 2013 Weddings.  They had a fabulous winter wedding with bright reds and purples at Ashton Gardens in Corinth.  These two aren’t Dallas Fort Worth local though as they traveled with all of their guests from Midland Odessa for their destination style wedding.  We met up with the lovely Bailey and her maids at a nearby hotel for some beautification by Something You Makeup Artistry.  I loved their fun denim shirts with custom monograms, made me want to kind of run out and get one!  Once we arrived at the chapel at the gardens we slid her into her gorgeous gown with lace detailing and a super sweet belt.  I love dresses with unique detailing and hers had it in spades.  Brandon and his gentlemen hung around and were laid back looking toward the ceremony.  He was super excited to open his gift from his bride to be and find some styling Justin Boots.  Practical and oh so suave.

The sun set and ceremony time approached, Bailey share a special reveal of her gown before her Daddy walked her down the aisle.  Brandon’s smile could not be bigger as his bride approached and he pretty  much stayed that way from that moment on as you can see above.  This is one guy who knows what he has and I am sure he will hold on tight to the beautiful girl he gets to call wife.  Stay tuned tomorrow for their killer reception led by Ed Petty of Leforce Entertainment, one of my favorite DJ’s!

All the pretty and planning were made possible to the always Extraordinary, Julie Eastman.  She knows how to pull together a stellar team!

Kelsey & Matthew – Wedding and Preparations at Aristide Event Center

Kelsey and Matthew are blissfully married and I could not be happier for them.  Their day was full of emotion and sweet moments that made me over the moon.  Above is one of my most favorite parts of their wedding day.  A trend in wedding photography right now is to have a private moment with the groom before the wedding BUT staying true to tradition and not seeing each other.  Kelsey & Matt choose to share notes as they stood on either side of the door.  It was perfect, they talked, giggled, you could see their nervous excitement and my favorite comment was “I’m ready to get married.”  I think this one image sets the tone for their day and their marriage.  See below for some other precious moments from their preparations and ceremony.  Tomorrow check back for the romantics, reception and slide show.

Kelsey’s Grandma seeing her in her gown for the first time, look at the light in her eyes.  It makes me melt.

I love Mom’s and how much they love their daughters.  Better yet I adore the look on Kelsey’s face, it just shows how much she knows she is loved.

Grandma wasn’t the only one that got to have a big reveal, Dad came to see Kelsey in her gown before the ceremony.

AND when he saw her she cried.  🙂

Nothing is sweater than tutu’s and ballet slippers on flower girls.  Classic, timeless and so princess perfect.

Before they left to prepare to walk down the aisle he sealed his time with her by a gentle kiss on the hand.

This bouquet by Lush Couture Floral is amazing BUT what makes me swoon is this custom locket with photos of all her family members that could not be with her.

String quartet providing the perfect backdrop to the ceremony

Matt is a clever man, he came up with a whole new tradition.  A BRO ROW.  What is that?  It is the equivalent of house party for the ladies but this dapper group of young men took seats of honor right behind his family to support their friends vows.

I am a sucker for Mom, Daughter moments and I love this one.

Stunning and ready to walk the aisle.

Looking for his bride.

Matt – you are a BAD groom.  You are not supposed to kiss her until AFTER the wedding.  I love that he was so overwhelmed and excited that he forgot tradition and went with his heart.

Matt’s Uncle married the couple which I love.  It means SO much more when you have a genuine connection with your officiant.

Stay tuned for more images tomorrow…..Oh they are good.
