Taylor & Tyler – Wedding Reception at City Club Fort WorthTexas

Taylor & Tyler’s wedding reception was beautiful in pinks and naturals at The City Club of Fort Worth!  The ballroom there always sparkles and there is something else I love about this venue – it is always a GREAT PARTY!  The atmosphere is just perfect for dancing all night, an amazing band and lots of fun!  Before we got to into the evening we snuck away for some night time photos not he balcony overlooking downtown Fort Worth.  I loved the TCU Purple lights on the buildings.  As the night went on these two danced, found themselves on the stage a few times and had a great time celebrating with their friends.  We had so much fun celebrating with you two – I can’t wait to see all the future holds!

 

Thank you to the wedding vendors who executed Taylor’s vision and made her day so fun!

Taylor & Tyler – Wedding Ceremony at Robert Carr ChapelTCU Fort Worth, Texas

I am so full of happiness for Taylor & Tyler.  They are super cute together and I can tell that they really and completely “get” each other.  From the moment I met them I knew – they are kind, genuine, loving to all and really have compassion for those around them.  They are good people and together they are great!

 

As they prepared for their wedding I loved the excitement in the room.  Although nothing matched Taylor’s excitement as she opened her pre-wedding gift.  A stuffed puppy!  This little lovey isn’t just to hold but as a sign to come – the golden doodle Tyler found her as a wedding present. Her favorite dog – her obsession.  Tyler knows her well!  I also loved our first look with Dad – Dad’s always make me cry when they see their little girls all dressed in white!

 

At the chapel as these two said their vows and exchanged rings there were lots of smiles and sweet moments.  These two wrote their own vows filled with funny quips that got a laugh from everyone!

 

Shoutout to the vendor team that made Taylor & Tyler’s wedding day so beautiful!

Laura & David – Wedding Reception at Classic Oaks RanchMansfield, Texas

Lightly Photography 2016

Laura & David have a great love story. Their wedding day is a perfect picture of them and it was filled with such beautiful moments.  During their wedding reception at Classic Oaks we had a blast!  When they descended the grand staircase into their first dance you could feel their love and it pretty much never stopped.  Hearing their parents and friends toast them you could see the intimacy of their relationships but what I heard over and over was what good people Laura & David are.  They were described by every person close to them as kind, compassionate, giving, serving and pretty funny too.  I think these two have a great future ahead of them if they love each other like their families described them they can’t fail.  After some yummy eats and sweets it was time to hit the dance floor!  David and Laura – thank you so much for allowing me to be with you.  I am so happy that I was able to hear and see your love!

Weddings come together for my couples with fabulous teams of people, pulled together to make their vision come to life.  Thanks to Laura & David’s Vendors!

Laura & David – Wedding Portraits at Classic Oaks RanchRomantics in Mansfield, Texas

Lightly Photography 2016

Laura & David are not just super beautiful people on the inside they are also pretty amazing to look at and photograph!  I mean look at these two!  If the sun had not been setting and I had unending perfect sunset light I  might have photographed them for a hour more.  Take a peek at their romantic couples portraits on the Classic Oaks Ranch property.  We scaled a cattle guard for some gorgeous photos and it was so worth it!  I love every part of Classic Oaks from the outdoor chapel, the barn and pastures.  Can’t wait to share this fun reception tomorrow!

 

Thank you to the wedding team that Laura & David selected and helped make this day so magical (and big shout out to David who helped with ALL the wedding planning!!!)

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!

Thank you to all the vendors who made this wedding so beautiful:

Megan & Dylan – Wedding Reception at The Modern Art MuseumFort Worth, Texas

Lightly Photography 2016

The Modern Art Museum of For tWorth is always a fave spot of mine – the venue has the most gorgeous architecture and being photographed in front of world class art is kind of amazing.  With an exhibit taking up the downstairs of the museum Philip, the museum guru, took me to a few spots I don’t usually get to visit including this fun lit piece above that was made for a romantic silhouette shot!

The grand hall was stunning with the grey’s of the museum against the silver and plum purples of the reception design by Tami Winn Events.  Lighting by It’s your night entertainment brought depth to the space.  To really escalate the bar spaces Tami Winn brought in hedge walls and bar facades.  So pretty!

Megan & Dylan entered the grand hall via the cat walk above their reception and welcomed guests before sitting down to dinner.  After cake and some mingling we moved the party to the cafe where the oval custom dance floor became center stage.  During the first dance Megan’s Daddy some how unplugged all the lighting systems but these two kept going and we kept photographing – it was definitely one of those funny moments that will forever be a wedding day story.  Megan & Dylan partied, danced, tossed bouquets & garter’s and savored every moment of their wedding reception!

I could not make all the beautiful images without the help of a fabulous vendor team, thanks to these guys for making my job easy!

Megan & Dylan – Getting Ready & Wedding CeremonyOmni Hotel & Robert Carr Chapel at TCU

Lightly Photography 2016

This day was full of all the feels – I mean look at this image that started our day!  As we arrived Megan was getting ready to read her note from Dylan and open her gift.  As she sat down and started to read the tears poured and it was precious in every way.  You all know how I feel about the feels – I am one happy photographer.  🙂

As the ladies dressed and the guys toasted and finished their final details we captured the fun, the emotions and the nerves leading up to the first look (see the post dedicated to that!  yes, it was so good it needed it’s own.)  Megan’s attire pretty much is one of my favorite looks ever – from her louboutin’s to her sparkly backless dress with it’s fun fluffy skirt.  Megan lovingly refers to her dress as Fluffy – every gown needs a special name!  Ready to go the couple and their bridesmaids and groomsmen set off on a bus to the Robert Carr Chapel at TCU Campus to get married!

Thank you to the vendors that made this day so beautiful:

Caroline & Taylor – Wedding Reception at Fort Worth Clubwith Tami Winn Events

Tracy Autem 2015

Such a perfect day.  It really was, I could totally go back right now and relive it.  Caroline & Taylor had a smashingly good reception designed and planned by Tami Winn.  Every detail was perfect and the gold and white dance floor with a the floral halo above was the centerpiece of this party.  It was the place to be all night as the dance floor was packed all night!  These two were never far apart, always within arms reach of each other when visiting with friends or shaking it under the band lights.

Guests enjoyed delicious food with late night snacks that even included whataburger taquitos!  Caroline had a fabulous martini bar and Taylor had a brewery bar that featured some of his favorite beers!  The customization of this wedding brought in so much of their personalities!  Best part of the night though was every time I caught Taylor just grinning at his bride.  He looked at her with complete adoration and I know that he is forever devoted to her.  I think both of them have so much to offer an both of them have won by gaining a partner that is more than they could have hoped for.

Thanks you two for allowing me to get to know you, your amazing friends and loving families.  I will never forget this day and I will always #wannabeaspalla !

These night time shots kill me!  Like, make me jump up and down I’m so happy for the opportunity to make the dark look beautiful!  I think almost all photographers love beautiful natural light but sometimes that just isn’t what your day has.  In the fall/winter in Texas with the early sunset time it is often dark when the ceremony ends.  We take that challenge and love to create some moody, romantic lit portraiture.  I love this series of images of Caroline & Mitch in the garden at the Ashton Depot and out front with the lights of Fort Worth behind them.  The depot is one of my favorite venues in Fort Worth – it is always beautiful and the service and food there is just perfect.  Caroline & Mitch’s guests enjoyed the entertainment – from a fun caricature artist to the fab band.  A sparkler send off and on to the Honeymoon!

Caroline & Mitch – Wedding Ceremony at Broadway Baptist Church

Tracy Autem 2015

Caroline & Mitch were adorable and I am thrilled to be sneaking in this amazing peek at their wedding before the Thanksgiving holiday.  Caroline looks like a Hollywood starlet and the beautiful deep fall colors and greenery at this wedding just had me swooning.  We met up with the girls for some preparations at the Sheraton in downtown Fort Worth before heading over to Broadway Baptist.  I love this church for its beautiful architecture and gorgeous getting ready room!  We had a perfect day so we did many of the bridal party and family portraits outside the church before the ceremony.  When it was finally time to walk the long aisle Caroline was all smiles and Mitch was so excited to see his beautiful bride.  My favorite part of their ceremony was the moments directly after – where I caught this great image above.  As they walked out of the chapel they were hugs, kisses, closeness and lots of chatting about their days.  Those first moments as man and wife are always a winner for me.  I get to be present for something that is so private and special.  Congrats you two!
