Leigh – Bridal Portrait at The Dallas ArboretumDallas, Texas

Leigh is a gorgeous bride!  Her lace gown with a plunging back and neckline was amazing!  I am loving these new illusion styles that expose yet cover and make dresses so sensual yet sophisticated.  Leigh is a sweet girl and I loved hanging out with her and her Mom at the bridal session at The Dallas Arboretum.  Her veil added some drama and when paired with the light wind we had some perfect moments.  Her bouquet was loose and lush in whites and greens and the simplicity of the color palette complemented her overall look.

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 !

Caroline & Taylor – Wedding Ceremony at Travis Ave BaptistFort Worth, Tx

Tracy Autem 2015

I just love this couple and their families.  These two were meant to be – meeting when neither of them ever expected it!  Both had found themselves is Midland, Texas for jobs and school and one night an invitation from a friend was all it took to connect these two.  Not expecting it I think they both just couldn’t believe what they may have found and as time went on it was proven time and again that their connection was deep and perfect.  Seeing them together is just a gift, they complete one anther, opposites and complimentary in every way.  They also win for my favorite hashtag ever!  #wannabeaspalla

For their wedding we joined Caroline & Taylor at Fort Worth Club for preparations and fun before their ceremony at Travis Ave Baptist Church.  Caroline is the youngest of 3 and I just love her parents, watching her with them and how happy they were for her just warmed my heart.  I know that Taylor is most definitely the man that her Mom & Dad prayed hard for.  From getting ready to time to walk the aisle everyone was having fun, enjoying each other and so ready to say I do.  Caroline looked lovely in her classic and timeless lace sleeved gown that was complimented by her mantilla veil.  Taylor was dashing in his tux with a white bow tie.  To keep from crying so many jokes were told – lots of laughter and happy tears were in abundance.

After the ceremony we just missed the start of a great spring storm and headed off to The Fort Worth Club to party!

Thank you to the team of vendors who helped make Caroline & Taylor’s day so special.

Brooke – Bridal Portrait at Rosewood Mansion at Turtle Creek

Bridal Portraits Mansion at Turtle Creek Tracy Autem Photography-0004

Brooke was a stunning bride for her December wedding and she rocked her gorgeous dress from Stardust Celebrations at her bridal portraits at The Mansion at Turtle Creek earlier last year.  Her lace gown was perfectly accented with the delicately trimmed veil.  Her hair and makeup team, Tracy Melton, stayed on site during her shoot and we did a quick hair change from down to up.  It is so hard to decide on a hair style for the big day and Brooke was able to see both before selecting the half up half down look for her wedding.  The flowers from Bella Flora complimented the lace details and made her look complete.  Brooke & Justin’s wedding was a super fun one to end the year in 2014.  If you missed it check out her wedding blogs:  Ceremony & Reception at Piazza in the Village.

Lauren’s Bridal Portraits at Fort Worth Stockyards Hotel and Station with her Pup Motley

Lauren married her best friend 2 Saturday’s ago on a VERY blustery and rainy day at OW Ranch.  It was beautifully imperfect and they made me get goose bumps.  Her bridals give me similar feelings, I love them!  On another some what rainy day we headed to the Fort Worth Stockyards for some bridals with a vintage, laid back country feel.  I loved her little puppy dog Motley she brought along and dressed him for the occasion in a sweet bow tie.  Can’t wait to share their wedding photos soon!
