Megan – Bridal Portraits at Chandor GardensWeatherford, Texas

Megan was a GORGEOUS bride and as her wedding just hit the newsstands in the newest Brides of North Texas Magazine I thought it was perfect timing to share her garden bridal session from last summer.  Megan is a sweetie and oh so fun to be around – her dress definitely showed off her personality with it sweet and sparkly detailing and volume filled skirt with attitude!  This  mixture of classic and modern clean lines complimented her wedding to Dylan at Robert Carr Chapel on the TCU campus with a reception at The Modern Art Museum.  The open back dress with sparkly straps was purchased at Nordstrom Wedding Suite.

You can see more of Megan and her purple wedding here.

Nicole – Bridal Portrait at Dallas ArboretumDallas, Texas

Nicole was a gorgeous bride with a big heart, lovely smile and a happiness that is infectious.  Her wedding last year at the Adolphus was fun filled and I so loved getting to know her parents and Kyle’s family.  I always get the blues after weddings are over because I really build such a closeness with my brides that I want to have excuses to see them forever.  Today I am revisiting this lovely lady and sharing her bridal portraits.  Photographed last spring at the Dallas Arboretum.  Nicole found her dress at the Bridal Boutique of Lewisville and her flowers are by Fleurs & Events.  It was super HOT this day and she brought the best crew of ladies to help her out.  With cousins and bridesmaids at her side they brought mini fans to keep Nicole cool, carried things are cracked us al up.  A wedding is made special by the couple but it is furthered by those close to them that they choose to include – Nicole definitely has great people in her life and that mad her bridal session a day I will not forget!

Laura & David – Wedding Portraits at Classic Oaks RanchRomantics in Mansfield, Texas

Lightly Photography 2016

Laura & David are not just super beautiful people on the inside they are also pretty amazing to look at and photograph!  I mean look at these two!  If the sun had not been setting and I had unending perfect sunset light I  might have photographed them for a hour more.  Take a peek at their romantic couples portraits on the Classic Oaks Ranch property.  We scaled a cattle guard for some gorgeous photos and it was so worth it!  I love every part of Classic Oaks from the outdoor chapel, the barn and pastures.  Can’t wait to share this fun reception tomorrow!

 

Thank you to the wedding team that Laura & David selected and helped make this day so magical (and big shout out to David who helped with ALL the wedding planning!!!)

Laura & David – Wedding Ceremony at Classic Oaks Ranch

Lightly Photography 2016

I LOVE an emotional couple and Laura & David are like my dream clients – these two love each other and are not afraid to show it.  David is such a cutie – I mean – look at his reaction (above) as he watched his beautiful Laura walk down the aisle to him!  What more can you ask for in a man?  Well, that was just the start.  This loving man had sweet words and nice gestures all day for his beloved – it made me cry SO many times!!!  During the ceremony the vows they had for each other were heartfelt and true and during the ceremony David was SO excited to be marrying his bride he couldn’t stop talking.  He wasn’t afraid to speak up and say how beautiful she was, lucky he was and in love with her he was.  Their ceremony had me crying, smiling and with goose bumps!  Laura was so thoughtful in all she did – from fun custom boots for her groom to perfect gifts for all the parents.  During the ceremony and every time she was near him, she was just glowing.

It was a pretty amazing day!

Tiffany & Chip – Wedding Reception at White Oaks Ranch

White oaks ranch wedding southern charm plantation estate tracy autem photography events experiences dallas fort worth ceremony reception fall outside outdoor light tif chip-110

In love with the beautiful fusion of classic and rustic in this open air covered pavilion!  I don’t think there could have been a more perfect place for Tiffany & Chip to celebrate their marriage with family and friends.  The lush tall centerpieces on the farmhouse inspired head table and the cafe lights made it so romantic.

 

As Tiff & Chip shared their first dance as husband and wife the were all smiles with a side of silly.  I love watching these two – seriously, my face hurt from smiling so much!  As Grandpa blessed the dinner (Babes Chicken, YUM!) I was once again just taken by this families closeness and love for each other as they held hands  praying to God.  This was further cemented as Tiffany not only shared a special dance with her Grandpa but her Mom – her hero, role model and biggest fan.  It was so sweet!  Chip and his Mom shared a sweet dance before kicking off the party with more fun dance to Walk The Dinosaur.  Never heard of it?  Well it is a spectacular example of 80’s amazingness, check it out here.

 

Some yummy cakes, pies and cobbler’s by Sugar Bee Sweets and it was Party time!  Such a fun day – I was so sad when it came to a close.  It was really a privilege to get to know them over this last year and share in their special day.  Love you guys!

 

How did all the pretty happen?  Because Tiffany & her Mommy recruited some amazing vendors to help out!  Check them out:

Tiffany & Chip – Wedding Ceremony & Portraits at White Oaks Ranch

White oaks ranch wedding southern charm plantation estate tracy autem photography events experiences dallas fort worth ceremony reception fall outside outdoor light tif chip-40

Grab your tissues!  More beautiful emotion filled images today!  Tiffany and Chip were married a few weeks ago at White Oaks Ranch in Pilot Point, Texas and it was a perfect day!  Today I am excited to share their ceremony and portraits.  These two carefully chose every detail of their day to reflect their faith, style, personality’s and the things that are near to their hearts.  Tiff’s grandpa officiated their ceremony and it was such a special touch.  Also joining the ceremony was one of their puppy dogs – he stood in as a great ring bearer!

 

Before Tiffany walked the aisle, Chip gave their little doggie a pat on the head and then looked out to greet his bride.  Tiffany was escorted down the aisle by her Mom and brother and it was so sweet watching everyone embrace and hold hands to pray before giving the bride away.  During the ceremony there were lots of smiles and a few happy tears and some perfectly funny and sincere vows.  Sealed with a kiss and a ketubah signing these two were married and then it was time for portraits!

 

We had such a fabulous time sharing in this day with them and want to thank the other friendors who helped make their vision come to life.

Tiffany & Chip – Wedding Preparations & First Look at White Oaks Ranch

White oaks ranch wedding southern charm plantation estate tracy autem photography events experiences dallas fort worth ceremony reception fall outside outdoor light tif chip-17 I don’t even know where to begin.  I had to check my face so many times during this day to make sure my mascara wasn’t running down my cheeks because this couple is amazing.  Yep, that is about it.

 

Years ago one of Tiffany’s friends was getting hitched and I was the lucky duck who photographed the wedding.  Through that Tiffany and I became Facebook friends and when I saw she was engaged I of course gave a shout of congrats.  Little did I  know that this girl would soon be sitting on my sofa at the studio talking about her wedding and ever since I have been anticipating their big day.

 

On Oct 10th we headed out to Pilot Point, Texas to White Oaks Ranch for their day full of Southern Charm and timeless elegance.  Upon arrival I fell in love with the property – it is gorgeous!  There is so much pretty in fact between these 2 love birds and the location that there will be THREE blogs for this wedding.  Yeah, I am kind of in love.  🙂

 

During getting ready as Mom was helping Tiff into her gown I witnessed one of the most beautiful moments in all my years of photography (it is going on the top 10 list!)  As she was fastening the dress, Mom, started to tell Tiffany everything on her heart.  Her joy, pride, excitement, answered prayers & promises and trust in Tiffany’s choice in Chip.  It was so special to hear a Mothers love, poured out for her daughter on the day she had been thinking toward ever since she held her as a tiny baby girl.  Yep – we cried, Tiffany cried and I am even crying as I remember it.

 

After some prep, a super sweet gift exchange and some celebrating with champagne it was time for the first look.  Chip eagerly awaited his bride under the arbor and when he turned around to see her his face welled with tears.  She gently wiped the tears from his face and then they were all smiles, hugs and kisses.  Read on to see these beautiful moments and check back for their wedding ceremony and reception!

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!

Rachael & Colin – Wedding Reception at Marie Gabrielle

Wedding Marie Gabriel Dallas Gro Designs Tracy Autem Photography-0047

After these two said I do it was time for some romantic portraits!  Marie Gabrielle Restaurant in downtown Dallas really is a stunning place to get married and I was so thankful the rain stayed away so we had time to capture these two love birds in the gardens.  Rachael’s lace gown and all white bouquet were simply elegant next to Colin’s traditional tuxedo.  We used up every last little bit of light before heading on inside to the party!

Gro Designs knocked it out of the park with the fabulous floral chandelier hanging above the dance floor.  It made the space feel extra special for Rachael & Colin.  Their reception was full of good food, laughter and fun as these two celebrated with their closest friends and family.  From getting down and dancing to the sparkler send off everyone had a fantastic time.
Congrats to the newlyweds and I can’t wait to hear about your Greece honeymoon!

Rachael & Colin – Wedding Ceremony at Marie Gabrielle

Wedding Marie Gabriel Dallas Gro Designs Tracy Autem Photography-0039

 

Rachael & Colin’s day was completely blessed.  I think every person involved was getting on their knees leading up to this wedding asking God to hold off the rains so that this couple could share their vows in the outdoor garden at Marie Gabrielle in downtown Dallas.  The Lord heard those prayers and not only held off the rain for their ceremony but a drop didn’t hit the ground until after their entire celebration came to an end.  On top of the praise worthy weather their day was just full of sweet moments and we so enjoyed sharing in it with them.

 

Meeting up with the ladies for getting ready I kind of fell in love with the thoughtful gift the bridesmaids bestowed upon their friend.  Each girl purchased a cookbook for her new home and wrote a note to Rachael in it. I love that for years to come she can pull out those cook books, fill her home with delicious food and remember her wedding day.  Way to go ladies!

 

At the gardens before the ceremony Rachael & Colin shared a moment together with out breaking tradition of seeing one another.  Around a pillar they shared wedding gifts and some words to ease their nerves and share their excitement. During the ceremony we laughed that Colin married 2 women as her uncle and minister tripped over his words and called her by her first name once and middle name another time.  Every day needs something to tell stories about!

 

Check back tomorrow for their wedding reception blog and slide show.  In the meant time thanks to a stellar vendor team that pulled all the details together and made sure this day was smooth.
