Morgan & Todd – Wedding Reception at Fort Worth ClubPortraits at Marty Leonard Chapel

 

Morgan & Todd had a lovely Fall nighttime wedding at Marty Leonard Chapel – afterwards we played in the dark and utilized the soft lighting of the church at night.  Then – we partied!  The Fort Worth Club looked stunning in pale pinks and neutrals and gold.  Everyone had an amazing time on the dance floor – So many good moments!

Thanks to all the vendors who made the day so special:

Morgan & Todd – Wedding Ceremony at Marty Leonard ChapelPreparation at Fort Worth Club

This wedding day was so beautiful!  My favorite part of the day was right before the ceremony.  Morgan & Todd wanted to pray together without seeing each other.  So we set them up outside around a column and they had the most beautiful moment where Todd prayed for their day, their marriage and thanked God for their many blessings.  I totally teared up – it was perfect!  To make it even more spiritual and sweet Todd’s groomsmen prayed for him and Morgan’s bridesmaids prayed for her.  I loved it!

This day was gorgeous in every way!  Thanks to the awesome vendor team who made it all happen:

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!

Emilee & Jeff – Wedding Ceremony at Marty Leonard ChapelFort Worth, Texas

Tracy Autem 2015

Emilee & Jeff’s black and white wedding was not just super pretty – it was full of emotional moments that made me get goose bumps and cry happy tears behind my camera.  After an sweet first look at the Omni hotel we headed to Marty Leonard Chapel for their wedding ceremony.  Emilee got her bridesmaids super fun black and white polka dot umbrella’s by Kate Spade so we had to use them for a photo – so cute!  After some photos of the bridesmaids and groomsmen outside the church it was time for their fall nighttime ceremony. The chapel has bright light during the day but at night it is moody and dimly lit and I think it feels very romantic.  During the ceremony I don’t think Jeff stopped smiling for an instant – I love his smile – so bright and contagious.  Even now I am smiling as I type thinking about his face.  🙂  After the I do’s we were able to capture some night time portraits showing off the architecture and space that makes the Marty Leonard Chapel so beautiful and unique.

Weddings are awesome but they are sure made better by a fab vendor team!  Thankfully Emilee had one great team:

Katie & Charlie – Winter Night Wedding Ceremony at Marty Leonard Chapel

Fort Worth Club New Years Eve Wedding Marty Leonard chapel tami winn events tracy autem photography katie charlie-48

 We ended 2015 with one fun blowout of a party as we celebrated alongside Katie & Charlie at Marty Leonard Chapel and The Fort Worth Club.  Before we could ring in the new year first we had to countdown to Conway and get these two married!

We kicked off the day at The Fort Worth club for preparations and some relaxing with the bridesmaids and groomsmen.  The ladies were ready to party and sparkling from head to toe in their gold drape backed sequin gowns.  Charlie, the sweetheart that he is, gave each of the bridesmaids a bottle of Creed Perfume, Love in White, with a hand written note on the back thanking them for being a part of their day.  Every detail was perfect and thought out from the fabulous blue shoes Katie wore to the bejeweled clutch and the amazing sapphire ring borrowed from he groom’s Mother.  When it was time to get dressed Katie just glowed.  I love her classic and clean lined gown with a fun and textured flared skirt.

At the church we snuck in a few photos as the sun was setting outside.  The ladies were so sophisticated in their fur stoles.  Charlie and his guys were thankful for the cold though – it is so funny to me how guys are always hot!  Whenever it is cold outside it seems like a blessing to the groom.  Katie’s family had their childhood minister who baptized her fly in to perform the ceremony.  By candlelight and romantic moody lighting the couple said their vows.  Charlie cried a few tears and Katie was so radiant.  It was such a pleasure to share this day with them.

Without this amazing team this wedding would not have been possible, thanks friendors!

Amy & John Paul – Wedding at Marty Leonard Chapel & Bass Hall Van Cliburn

Amy John Paul Wed SS-77 Amy & John Paul are a super fabulous couple that I LOVED spending their wedding day with.  They treated me like one of the family and all of their guests and friends were filled with happiness to see these two tie the knot!  The best part of their wedding may have been Issac, Amy’s son, who totally stole the show.  From walking his mom down the aisle to a special moment in the ceremony where he received a special dragon charm (his favorite creature.)   It is great to see not only a man and woman totally in love, made for each other but how they both considered their marriage and that it wasn’t just about them, it was about family.  The family vibe started early as the couple prepared in their home with Issac and surrounded by friends.  It was so casual and easy going – even though they were together Amy kept her final reveal a secret until the church where John saw her for the first time in the Marty Leonard Chapel.  Then after some time alone Issac was invited in to see his Mommy in her gown.  All day long the theme was purple, from flowers to table cloths and even chargers.  It was so perfectly done with complementing shades adding depth and interest to the monochromatic theme. This fabulous day was pulled together by the work of an amazing line up of vendors:

Kerri & Jase – Wedding at Marty Leonard Chapel with Reception at Stockyards Station

Kerri and Jase were married on a wintery day in the evening at Marty Leonard Chapel with their reception to follow at Stockyards Station.  It may have been cold outside but Jase kept his girl warm and we had a great time photographing them.  Their day was filled with intricate details that Kerri and a team of friends and family spent months pulling together.  There were so many sweet things I can’t begin to talk about them all but I must mention her DIY mason jar glasses.  They were adorable and a beautiful parting gift for all her guests.  On top of Kerri’s hard work the following vendors made their day possible:

Tami Winn – Floral

Stardust Celebrations – Bride’s Gown

Christina & Mason {Married} Marty Leonard Chapel, City Club Fort Worth & Omni Hotel

Jewett-Wedding-Marty-Leonard-Chapel-City-Club-Fort-Worth-Omni-Hotel-Tracy-Autem-Photography

On Valentines weekend Christina & Mason were married and it was an amazing first wedding of 2011 for me.  They are a couple with personality and that makes my job even more fun!  Christina and her brides maids prepared at the Omni Hotel and their suite was gorgeous.  Besides it being HUGE there was amazing light which made me one happy girl and a balcony with a view that was almost scary high.  Sarah Rizy was my second for the wedding and she stayed away from the edge, I was a tad more daring.  They had a night ceremony at Marty Leonard followed by a reception at City Club Fort Worth.  My friend, Randy Ro, provided entertainment while everyone danced and enjoyed the celebration.  At the end of the evening we followed the couple back to their hotel suite for some balcony photos and a little fun.  Every couple is SO unique and they have a definite side of silly so when I suggested some bed jumping they were all about it and got some BIG air (Sorry Omni Hotel, we promise, we broke nothing.)

It was truly an honor to be a part of their day.  The biggest compliment is when another photographer, like Christina, selects me to document their wedding.  Christina must have felt like a celebrity because between our cameras and her bridesmaids (several of them also are photographers or are hobbyists) she was a star.  Thank you Christina & Mason for trusting me, it was amazing.

Christina & Mason {Engaged} Fort Worth Urban session in the South Side

For my last photo shoot of 2010 I met up with Christina & Mason for their engagement session.  They are getting married in just a few short weeks in February with a candle lit ceremony at Marty Leonard Chapel and a reception at City Club Fort Worth.  I can’t wait, especially after spending time with these two!

Christina and Mason dated in high school and have had an on/off relationship ever since and thankfully now it is fully on and they are walking down the aisle.  It makes complete sense to me after just a few hours with these two.  They are completely goofy and silly with one another and extremely sweet.  I love how Christina plays with his hair and how they just giggle all the time (Mason giggles in a very masculine way though.)  It was a huge compliment that Christina selected me for her photography as she has a degree in photography (Her sister does too!) and is teaching elementary art and hopes to pursue photography professionally in the future.  It is always a trip when I get to use technical words during a shoot and know that a client gets what I am doing.

You two were the icing on the cake for 2010 and the most perfect session to start the new year on the blog!  See you both in February!

Stacy & Brent Married! {Part 2 Moments} Ashton Depot & Marty Leonard Chapel in Fort Worth

Marty Leonard Chapel Fort Worth Texas Bride Groom Tracy Autem Photography

The above photo defines this couple for me.  Stacy and Brent are so loving and sweet and in this moment I saw.  After their first look in which Stacy cried and they were both so happy to finally see each other this happened.  Sarah Rizy had gone out into the chapel entry to invite the family inside so we could begin formal photos.  Concerned her make up was smeared, Brent took it upon himself to oh so carefully blot her eyes.  I just love the calmness and confidence Stacy had that he would not further smear it and the complete concentration Brent took to ensure his bride looked perfect.  That is love and why I do what I do.  Every day I shoot people I get to see, really see, who people are.  Here is Stacy & Brent’s wedding day, the moments that mattered and their highlights slide show.  Congratulations guys!  You know I love you  and am so glad I was there to share in your day.

Stacy broke out in tears the moment she passed the threshold of the chapel.

Together at last. This moment is why first look's bring me joy. This is what I believe all couples want to do when they finally see each other on the wedding day but most don't because they are in front of a crowd. Alone there is honesty in every action and I love it.

Mr & Mrs!

Moments after the ceremony are awesome and often I am the only one around to see. Here Brent sweetly kissed Stacy on the forehead and seconds later they were yelling and celebrating. All the emotions a wedding brings in just seconds.
In a loud parting limo I love this stollen quiet glance.

First dance as husband and wife at the beautiful historic Ashton Depot.

These two photos I love. Brent watching his bride with her father and then Stacy watching her groom with his Mom. Sometimes the best moment isn’t what every one is watching, it is what no one is.

Stacy's two best girls, twin sisters, giving a toast.

Love this sad face while her step Father said a few words.

Dancing the night away!

Have some cake!
