Caitlin & Jordan – Wedding Reception at the Dallas Petroleum ClubDallas, Texas

Caitlin & Jordan’s Dallas Petroleum Club wedding reception was fun filled and beautiful!  Caitlin knows what she likes and I could feel her aesthetic throughout her ballroom decor.  Her florist, Bryan Long, brought her vision to life with dripping flowers from the chandeliers and large scale topiaries mixed with lower lush pieces.  Along with candlelight, seating vignettes and lighting the space was warm, inviting and elegant.  From the first dance to the last dance these two were so fun to capture smile, laugh and dance with their family and friends.  Above for their private last dance I pulled them off the dance floor and into the  middle of their ballroom so we could not only capture their extreme cuteness but the feeling of the space they created.

Caitlin & Jordan – I love you guys.  Thanks for being so gracious, kind and friendly to me and my team.  You made us feel important and that connection led to lots of happy tears and smiles behind my camera.  Thanks for being the last of 2016 and setting the tone so well going into next year.  I know God has great things for you both!

Caitlin & Jordan – Wedding Ceremony at the Sky LobbyDallas, Texas

The Sky Lobby at Chase Tower in Dallas, Texas was the most perfect backdrop for this modern couple’s wedding ceremony.  Before heading upstairs to say I do we captured some romantic images in front of the venue.  Caitlin & Jordan’s day had so many beautiful locations that I have had to separate their wedding blogs into 4 posts so I could give each spot their own spotlight!  The Sky lobby has stunning views of Dallas and even after the sunset the room was big and spacious and elegant with the glimmer of downtown lights in the distance.  During their ceremony I loved watching their smiles, their parents and of course all the perfect little moments that made everyone laugh.  Such a special time!

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 – First Look & PortraitsWedding Day in Fort Worth

Lightly Photography 2016

Just look at that!  See!  I am in love with this day and all the feelings that just bubbled over from start to finish.  Megan and Dylan chose to see each other before their TCU Robert Carr Chapel wedding ceremony.  We set up Dylan on the deck at The Omni Hotel Fort Worth as he awaited his bride.  He was so ready to see her and just before he turned around to see Megan I asked him what he thought her dress looked like, he nailed it!  Dylan knows his sweet Megan well, he said her gown was big and sparkly.  🙂 Love that!  When he turned these two both just burst out in tears of joy – their day had finally arrived!!!

After some emotion, hugging it out and catching up on their day we took some romantic portraits before heading over to the Kimbell Art Museum with the bridesmaids and groomsmen for some fun photo ops.  The clean lines and bright light colors of the architecture outside there perfectly balanced the reception space at The Modern Art Museum.  I really could just photograph these two for hours alone – they were so adorable.  But, they kind of needed to get to the chapel and get married so I had to let them go.

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 & Mitch – Wedding Reception at Ashton Depot

Tracy Autem 2015

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!

Bree & Craig – Private Dallas Ranch Wedding Reception

Private Ranch Residence Wedding ceremony outside flowers stylish soiree Tracy Autem photography Dallas Fort Worth Tent fireworks limelight band-120

Can’t think of a better end to a day then this.  A final goodbye amidst sparklers and fireworks!

 

The reception space at Bree’s family ranch was housed in a tent filled with rustic meets chic decor.  The beautiful barn tables were dressed up in whites, silver and touches of gray, greens and lavenders.  The family style atmosphere set the tone for a fun filled night.  As limelight took the stage and Bree & Craig were announced the party was on!  This couple never strayed far from the dance floor or each other.  After dinner it was time for cake and there was a little special detail on the back of the cake just for Craig – his Jersey number on a tiny little football!  Super cute and very thoughtful of Bree.  As the night progressed it was time for wedding dress #2!  I am not always a fan of second dresses but this one – let me say was pretty awesome.  The slinky beaded gown was easy to dance in and had perfect little princess cap sleeves.  As the night came to close the couple took the stage for their last dance along side the band before being led off to their honeymoon by the horn section.

 

It was a fabulous night and we had the best time celebrating with them.  Bree made us feel like family and I am just thrilled for these two and the life they have ahead of them.  Congratulations you two!

Bree & Craig – Getting Ready & Ceremony at Dallas Private Ranch

Private Ranch Residence Wedding ceremony outside flowers stylish soiree Tracy Autem photography Dallas Fort Worth Tent fireworks limelight band-67

After a kiss to seal their marriage Craig and Bree were all smiles as the turned to their family and friends.  Those infectious smiles made it easy and fun to photograph these two.  As the couple arrived at the family ranch a few hours before the I Do’s they prepped is separate homes on site.  Bree was stunning in her Pronovias gown with a  lace caplet that made her look.  I love a girl that knows what she likes and Bree knows.  She wanted some type of sleeves and by adding this little lace bolero she achieved exactly what she wanted. It was sophisticated with her high top knot style bun and a the textured mermaid skirt.  Her ladies shined in dresses from Nordstrom.  The guys went classic and relaxed in gray suiting with suspenders and no jackets to keep cool on this hot summer day.  Craig’s jacket however pulled his look tighter and made him a polished groom.

 

As guests arrived they were greeted by the family dog complete with a flower wreath of baby’s breath.  I love that they turned everything around and kicked off the day with a cocktail hour.  So guests enjoyed the shade, cold drinks and light snacks before the wedding.  During the ceremony as the sun began to set vows were said and this to were married!  Lots of laughs, big smiles, and sweet moments.  Check back tomorrow for their energy filled party and of course thank you to the following vendor team who made this day such a sucess!

Tracey & Luis – Wedding Reception at Thistle Springs Ranch

 

Thistle Springs ranch outdoor wedding reception barn classic tracy autem photography tracey luis-4

After the I do’s it was time to party…well after some beautiful portraits at least.  By the time I had these two all to myself for some romantic imagery the light was golden and pretty much perfection.  These two just beam in each others presence.  I could have photographed just them all night but we had to get the party started and they did that from the moment they walked in. Led into their reception by the Walton Stout Band horn section it set the tone for a night with a full dance floor and happy hearts.  From the first dance until the last the guests drank, ate, danced and enjoyed the party to celebrate the start of Tracey & Luis’ life together.  Luis is all about the formula one racing so of course he had to have a racing themed cake that was created by Sugar Bee sweets.  It was super cool!  To throw in a little bit of family heritage there was lots of latin dancing and the Hora (Jewish chair dancing tradition).  The day felt like these two, it was so personalized.  Congrats!
