Abbey & Andrew – Wedding Reception at The Ashton DepotFort Worth, Texas

When you put a gorgeous couple at the Ashton Depot you really can’t go wrong and this night was amazing.  The team with Out of the Garden filled the space with beautiful tall centerpieces that had so much texture and interesting shapes.  The room was color washed and the ceiling had a patterned gobo to really make the depot look full and vibrant!  As the guests arrived they enjoyed cocktails on the tented patio with passed appetizers  and lounge furniture.

As the band announced the bridal party the anticipation built and when the Mr. & Mrs. where finally called into the room everyone stood and applauded as they took to the dance floor for their first dance.  Abbey and Andrew could not have been smiling bigger as they held each other close and Andrew spinned and dipped his new wife!  We jumped right into dances with Mom and Dad before settling into a fabulous dinner by The Ashton Depot.  During toasts everyone laughed at the silly stories and sweet words of their bridal party and Abbey’s Dad.  I love watching the parents during toasts and I captured Abbey’s parents being oh so sweet to one another.  🙂

Then it was PARTY time!  Drinks in the air, jumping and dancing and cutting up on the dance floor!  The Downtown Fever Band led everyone on night that was jam packed with fun.  I am sure many feet were aching when it was time to depart.  As guests lit sparklers Abbey & Andrew enjoyed a private last dance.  One last moment in their wedding reception before dashing off to their vintage limo.

I am lucky to have such gorgeous and kind clients and even more so that they select such great vendors to work along side:

Abbey & Andrew – Wedding Ceremony at University BaptistFort Worth, Texas

I just LOVE Abbey and Andrew – from a chance meeting in Texas to moving across country and finding love these two were drawn to one another.  Their lives were orchestrated so that they just had to be together and when you are with them you know it is GOOD.

We met up at the Renaissance Worthington to capture these two get ready for their big day along side there friends and family.  It was rainy outside but inside everyone was having fun, laughing and making toasts to all the goodness that was this wedding day.  Abbey had her Mom help her into her gown upstairs while her bridesmaids dressed and anxiously awaited the BIG reveal.  But, before she went downstairs Daddy came up to see his daughter all dressed in white.  He brought her a bracelet and they hugged it out and made this photographer totally get teary!  (I love Daddy Daughter moments!!!)  Then as she walked downstairs those bridesmaids squealed and smiled to see their friend looking SO beautiful!  The guys toasted some whiskey and Andrew chatted with his Grandpa as he prepped to see his bride.

At the church it was go time and you could see how anxious Andrew was for those doors to open, when it did he was all smiles and tight lipped holding back those tears – Abbey was breathtaking!  Through out the ceremony we had laughter, smiles and sweet glances.  It was perfection.  Their minister, a family member, was awesome and made everything about the ceremony so personal and deep.

After these two were officially wed, God gave us a beautiful gift and stopped the  misty rain just long enough for us to steal 3 minutes outside before family portraits began.  This California couple hoped for sunshine days but at least we got a moment without the rainy skies.

Thank you to all the vendors who made this day so perfect:

Kayla & Chris – Wedding Reception at The Fort Worth Club

Tracy Autem 2015

Such a perfectly made day with magical holiday touches like this awesome classic car with a Christmas Tree on top!  When you choose to get married in December it is best to embrace the holidays and not fight it because the result is always magical.  I loved this couple’s way of subtly allowing the club’s holiday decor to enhance their beautiful day.  Kayla even brought along some mistletoe for a photograph.  So cute!

 

This reception was SO fun.  Kayla & Chris should teach classes to other couples on how dip because they looked awesome!  Lots of laughter and a little bit of tears as their friends and Father of the bride toasted the couple.  The sweet maid of honor had contacted us prior to the wedding and we hooked her up with some engagement images to complete a book she presented to the couple that chronicled their lives together.  It was such a thoughtful gift it brought tears to Kayla’s eyes.  Then the party was on, cake was served and everyone hit the dance floor!
Thank you Kayla & Christoph for including me and Sarah at your special day.  We loved being there with you and had a great time.  Congrats!

Special thanks to our vendor friends who helped make this wedding perfect!

Kayla & Chris – Wedding Ceremony at The Fort Worth Club

Tracy Autem 2015

This Winter we have has so many gorgeous weddings and I love to see more brides embracing the colder months and having some fabulous winter weddings.  Before Christmas we spend the day with Kayla & Chris as they were married at Fort Worth Club in downtown Fort Worth.  It is such a stunning venue and it was lovely to have their entire event on site.  Kayla and her bridesmaids looked fabulous in their dresses from Bliss Bridal.  I loved how the bridesmaids dresses complimented her gown with the lace and navy tops.

 

I love emotion and connection and I so enjoyed capturing some precious moments between Kayla and her parents during the getting ready portion of the day.  Watching her Mommy with her just made my heart happy.  They were so sweet, helping each other and giving hugs.  When Dad walked in the room to see Kayla for the first time he was just blown away at her beauty.  He checked out her dress and looked her over with deep pride.  So sweet!

 

As their ceremony began this couple brought their personalities.  They are not afraid to laugh and love life together and you can see that from their faces during the vows.  I loved Chris’ intro about how this was just an ordinary day – babies were born and all kinds of regular stuff but THEY happened to be getting married.  His sense of humor and charm are just perfect.

Special thanks to our vendor friends who helped make this wedding perfect!
