Leigh & Evan – Wedding Reception at Fort Worth ClubFort Worth, Texas

I love the party – after a day full of emotion and excitement it all comes down to a big celebration!  This party was pretty phenomenal – with gorgeous floral from Branching Out Events and a killer band brought in from Atlanta, Jessie’s Girls, it was top of the charts!  Leigh and Evan were inseparable all night – dancing close, laughing and visiting with their friends and family.  Not sure there are even words for how much fun we all had!  Just browse on and you will know that this is a night no one will forget!

This wedding was perfect in every way thanks to an amazing vendor team:

Caroline – Bridal Portraits at the Historic 512Fort Worth, TX (formerly historic YWCA)

Tracy Autem 2015

Caroline is married and off in Hawaii celebrating her marriage to Taylor.  She truly looked stunning on her wedding day – like a Hollywood Starlet.  Her gown just is the epitome of classic, I don’t believe anyone will ever be able to pin point the year of her wedding.  Her gown embodied the classic feelings of people like Grace Kelly and the  mantilla veil (borrowed from her sister) was the perfect accent.  Caroline truly looked like a modern day princess.  Bouquet is by Tami Winn Events.

 

My favorite part of her bridals though was a reveal of her look to Dad, Eric.  Often Daddy’s show up at bridal portraits and I always want to capture them seeing their daughters and make it special.  I had Eric wait outside then brought  him in for the big reveal.  It was magical.  When Eric walked her down the aisle Saturday and Taylor saw her for the first time it was just as perfect as he totally cried at the sight of his bride.  Congrats Caroline!  Enjoy the honeymoon!

Megan & Casey – Wedding Ceremony at TCU Robert Carr Chapel

Tracy Autem 2014

Megan & Casey are married and by this time settled into their new home in Tucson!  This couple may have had to skip the honeymoon so they could move and settle in before Casey had to report back to base BUT they had a fabulous time together her win Fort Worth for a few days as they celebrated wedding with their closes friends and family.

After some beautification at the Omni hotel Megan and her ladies hopped in the limo to Robert Carr Chapel.  After slipping on her delicate lace gown from Bliss Bridal these two tied the knot!  From the moment that door opened Casey beamed as he watched his bride walk toward him.  As Daddy gave her away I loved that he hugged Casey, kissed Megan than said a few words over them – it was one of the sweetest moments with a Father I have ever seen at a wedding.  During the ceremony their were lots of laughs, ear to ear smiles and perfectly spoken words that ended with a kiss and a grand exit in front of the church.  An Air Force tradition some of the TCU Cadets performed the saber arch for the couple and as they kissed they allowed them passage.  It was perfect in every way!

Their day, emotion filled, didn’t stop at the ceremony and I can’t wait to share the fun of the reception tomorrow.

As always wedding days are made by great vendor teams.  Megan put together a fab team!  Thanks to the following vendors for helping create her vission:

Kayla & Neal – Relaxed Ranch Wedding at The Orchard

Tracy Autem & Lightly Photography 2014

Kayla and Neal are one of the warmest couples I have ever worked with.  Super sweet, totally in love and they pale a high value on relationships with all those around them.  They made me feel like I was part of the family, a close friend and an honored guest.  It was so much fun to share in their wedding experience.  On a perfect first Saturday in May this couple tied the knot at The Orchard in Azle.  Not a typical ranch wedding the aesthetic was elegant yet relaxed and organic.  Kayla selected Navy and Yellow for her wedding colors.  Perfectly complimented and funnily enough the school colors for Michigan where they met.  I am sure Neal’s family never pictured their son would fall head over heals for a Texas nurse and chase her down south and drag them along for a full on Southern wedding.  Looking above you can see as these two smile at each other in during their ceremony that they are enamored with one another.  Their day was perfected by the Todd Events team providing design, floral and planning for this couple.

Todd Events pulled together a fabulous team of vendors including:

Kayla – Bridal Portrait at Aldredge House, Dallas

Tracy Autem Photography 2014 http://tracyautem.com

 

Kayla is one of the sweetest and most genuine girls I have ever met.  She is excited about life, quick to laugh and so loving.  I can’t count how many times this girl has hugged me or expressed gratitude – It is kind of hard not to love her!  Her laid back outdoor wedding will be hitting the blog soon.  For her bridal portraits we choose a more formal look and feel at the Aldredge House in Dallas.  This historic vintage home is grand and beautiful and brought out Kayla’s sophisticate side.  Her lace gown and elegant cap sleaves from Brides and Beaux in Colleyville were perfectly paired with the feeling of this venue.  Kayla’s classic ivory and white bouquet with texture was created by Todd Events.  We were blessed with a great day so we were able to explore the grounds as well.  So very excited to share her wedding later this week!

Bailey – Bridal Portraits at Chandor Gardens

Tracy Autem Photography 2013 http://tracyautem.com

I love the winter, in Texas weddings slow down and we find the time to rest before diving into another busy spring full of beautiful brides and emotion charged wedding days.  It is also gives me a chance to share some of my bridal portraits from our Fall brides.  Ms. Bailey was our last wedding for 2013 on Dec 28th at Ashton Gardens.  This west Texas girl brought her and Brandon’s family up to the big D for all their wedding festivities, it was a destination wedding in many ways.  For her bridal portraits we selected one of my favorite gardens, Chandor Gardens, in Weatherford.  It feels like an old English garden with greenery, architectural detailing (like this walkway above) and is just so serene, I could spend all day there!  Bailey’s dress was found at Bridal Boutique of Lewisville and her bright, bold purple bouquet was created by Lush Couture (one of my faves!)

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!

Ashlyn Bridal Portraits at Fort Worth Club

Ashlyn and Ben were married recently so I am honored to be able to share her bridal session finally!  They were truly amazing and we had some fun and tried a few new things at Fort Worth Club.  I always love to photograph there but it is constantly a challenge to find new ways to see the rooms and furnishings.  Her lace gown was found at Warren Baron with hair and make up by Sonia Trevino of Fabulous Faces.  Her organic yet elegant floral was done by Branching Out.  I LOVE this girl and I can’t wait to share her wedding!
