Britny & Aman – Wedding Ceremony at Mckinney Cotton Mill

Lightly Photography 2016

Britny and Aman make me so happy – their love for each other is strong and full of so much life, laughter and just goodness.  I remember noticing how Aman looked at Britny when I photographed her sister’s wedding years ago.  That look hasn’t changed and he was definitely wearing that big in love grin when she walked down the aisle to him at the McKinney Cotton Mill!

We kicked off their wedding day at the wedding venue along side the girls as they were prettied by the JTorry team.  Aman and his guys hung at the hotel and joined us at the Cotton Mill for some family portraits and photos with his guys.  After dressing in her gown Britny shared a special first look with her Daddy and their eyes both filled with tears.  It was so incredibly sweet.

Finally wedding time the strings started to play and everything came together to make these two husband and wife!  I loved their sweet smiles as they exchanged vows and rings.

Can’t wait to share all the beautiful details from the wedding reception!  Shout out to all the vendors we partnered with for this wedding celebration!

Bee Gold Vintage Styled Shoot at Scottish Rite in Dallas

Tracy Autem & Lightly Photography 2014

It is rare that I have the chance to play and do styled shoots.  Almost everything you see on my blog is real brides.  This shoot was a styled shoot that was created by the girls at Gold Dust Vintage and The Bees Knees.   Classic elegance with some vintage glamour was the theme for this shoot with some adorable “will you be my bridesmaid” paper products.  Our model, Emily, is a real bride and sister to the Gold Dust Girls!  Her doe eyes and porcelain skin was a perfect match for the look sand style of this shoot.  In addition to some bridal images we photographed Emily in a classic hollywood boudoir vignette with silk robe, champagne and very dramatic window light.  The fabulous pinks and reds of the floral were provided by Chelsey Arnal’s team with Events and Experiences.  Thanks ladies for including me on this shoot!

Celebration de Lamour – A French Picnic styled photo shoot with Tami Winn Events and Brides of North Texas Magazine

SS14_BONT_Tabletop_TamiWinn_01_1This tabletop shoot was one to remember!  I love when planners and designers think outside the box and Tami Winn definitely did with this French inspired picnic. The low ground level tables surrounded by posh pillows were so inviting.  I adored the bold striped linens, the classic gold and pops of pink.  Treats were provided by the Four Seasons Resort with a ruffled cake by Creme de la Creme.  This sweet picnic took place with one of my real couples, Kristy & Jared, at the Four Seasons in Dallas Spa Poll Deck.  This pocket of pretty green grass, surrounded by trees created a haven for our set and lovely couple.  To add to the outdoor vibe we were joined by a little frenchie, a french bulldog that is, Bruiser.  Bruiser is the pup of one Dallas’ best DJ’s, Glenn Roush.  Thanks to all the vendors who took part in this photo shoot and check it out in the pages of Brides of North Texas Magazine!

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!

Classic Oaks Ranch – An amazing rustic wedding and reception venue

 

I love ranch weddings and I am so excited to see more and more beautiful ranch’s opening up their gates to brides and grooms.  Classic Oaks Ranch is a new wedding and reception venue in Mansfield, Texas and I fell in love as soon as I drove through the gates.  I was greeted by a few camels, rolling landscape with oak trees and some beautiful cattle.  The ranch is 230 acres and is a working cattle and equestrian facility.

Their ceremony spot is a natural altar between two towering Oak Trees.  Also on site is an 18,000 square foot climate controlled event barn with a stone fireplace, a bridal suite including a fully equipped salon, groom lounge, guest accommodations, and a 2,500 square foot party pavilion.  It is breathtaking and the perfect place for a rustic vintage ranch wedding.

I was thrilled to be invited by the owners of the ranch and Gold Dust Vintage to participate in a photo shoot to show off their recently renovated facility.  We were joined by Daniel Troupe of Lynn Films who captures our shenanigans on film and gives you a much better feel for the flow and vibe at Classic Oaks.  All of our vintage rentals were provided by Gold Dust Vintage, they have an fantastic array of items for rent for any event.  Twigs Floral provided all of our flowers.  My favorite bridal salon, Bliss Bridal, provided our two gowns.  Todd Bush, with Oliver’s Fine Foods, brought us some scrumptious items to complete our head table.  May I serve you provided table linens and other rentals and Lucia Bitnar with Foster Blue helped style the day.  Paper products provided by Inviting Ink.

Check out Daniel’s video, you can tell we had fun & that this new wedding location is perfection!  To see it full screen go HERE.
