Allison & Allen – Wedding Reception at The Modern Art MuseumFort Worth, Texas

Allison & Allen had a fabulous party to celebrate their marriage at The Modern Art Museum in Fort Worth.  This NYC couple was surrounded by friends and family as they danced and partied the night away.  Having a fab time was super important to them – they actually flew in a DJ from Israel that they had seen at a friends wedding. His European style of mixing kept the dance floor packed all night long!  The Modern was beautiful in elegant tulips in purples and whites with clean lined acrylic accents on the head table.  Gro Designs always surprises me with their decor and ideas from flowers to linens.

My favorite moment of the reception is above.  They spent the night dancing with friends but this quiet moment on the dance floor was perfection.  Amidst the crowd they just melt into each other – So much love and respect for one another.

Huge shout out to all the vendors who made this Fort Worth wedding reception a hit!

Allison & Allen – Wedding Ceremony & PreparationsMarty Leonard Chapel, Fort Worth

Allison & Allen were married at the Marty Leonard Community Chapel in Fort Worth.  I loved their modern traditional wedding!  Although they had bridesmaids and groomsmen they elected to stand unattended at the altar which really brought the focus onto the two of them and the commitment they were making.  Their close friend – and bridesmaid – married them, making the ceremony very unique and tailored to the two of them.  My favorite part of the ceremony was during the special  music – as Allison’s parents sang a duet her eyes welled up with tears and Allen gently wiped away her tears.  It was so beautiful and a perfect representation of his caring heart for his bride.

Thanks to the amazing vendors who made their ceremony so perfect!

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.

Rachael & Colin – Wedding Reception at Marie Gabrielle

Wedding Marie Gabriel Dallas Gro Designs Tracy Autem Photography-0047

After these two said I do it was time for some romantic portraits!  Marie Gabrielle Restaurant in downtown Dallas really is a stunning place to get married and I was so thankful the rain stayed away so we had time to capture these two love birds in the gardens.  Rachael’s lace gown and all white bouquet were simply elegant next to Colin’s traditional tuxedo.  We used up every last little bit of light before heading on inside to the party!

Gro Designs knocked it out of the park with the fabulous floral chandelier hanging above the dance floor.  It made the space feel extra special for Rachael & Colin.  Their reception was full of good food, laughter and fun as these two celebrated with their closest friends and family.  From getting down and dancing to the sparkler send off everyone had a fantastic time.
Congrats to the newlyweds and I can’t wait to hear about your Greece honeymoon!

Rachael & Colin – Wedding Ceremony at Marie Gabrielle

Wedding Marie Gabriel Dallas Gro Designs Tracy Autem Photography-0039

 

Rachael & Colin’s day was completely blessed.  I think every person involved was getting on their knees leading up to this wedding asking God to hold off the rains so that this couple could share their vows in the outdoor garden at Marie Gabrielle in downtown Dallas.  The Lord heard those prayers and not only held off the rain for their ceremony but a drop didn’t hit the ground until after their entire celebration came to an end.  On top of the praise worthy weather their day was just full of sweet moments and we so enjoyed sharing in it with them.

 

Meeting up with the ladies for getting ready I kind of fell in love with the thoughtful gift the bridesmaids bestowed upon their friend.  Each girl purchased a cookbook for her new home and wrote a note to Rachael in it. I love that for years to come she can pull out those cook books, fill her home with delicious food and remember her wedding day.  Way to go ladies!

 

At the gardens before the ceremony Rachael & Colin shared a moment together with out breaking tradition of seeing one another.  Around a pillar they shared wedding gifts and some words to ease their nerves and share their excitement. During the ceremony we laughed that Colin married 2 women as her uncle and minister tripped over his words and called her by her first name once and middle name another time.  Every day needs something to tell stories about!

 

Check back tomorrow for their wedding reception blog and slide show.  In the meant time thanks to a stellar vendor team that pulled all the details together and made sure this day was smooth.
