Katie & Allen – Wedding Reception & Portraits at Piazza in the VillageColleyville, Texas

Katie & Allen’s vibrant colored wedding reception at Piazza in the Village in Colleyville was beautiful. The lighting gave the effect of a pink sunset on the walls while they danced their first dance.  It was beautiful and this night was fun!  DJ Andy Austin made the reception with his antics, party styling and DJ skills.  Such a beautiful night thanks to the following vendor team:

Katie & Allen – Wedding Ceremony & First Look at Piazza in the VillageColleyville, Texas

Katie and Allen had a Colleyville wedding at Piazza in the Village.  Katie and her flower girl both matched in fun pink shoes for the wedding and I caught her trying on Katie’s big girl shoes!  From sweet moments with Grandma and Mom it was such  nice time together at the hotel as we prepared to head to the Piazza.  During the first look Katie & Allen were so happy to finally be together – her smile above says it all!

I am excited to share the images from their getting ready, first look and wedding ceremony.  Enjoy!

Thank you to the vendors who made this day so special:

Brooke & Justin – A Winter Wedding Reception at Piazza in the Village

 

Tracy Autem & Lightly Photography 2014

Brooke & Justin had the perfect winter wedding at The Piazza in the Village.  After a little rain it cleared up and despite the cold we took the chance for some lovely outdoor night portraits!  The cafe lights in the courtyard at the Piazza mark for a perfect backdrop!  Bella Flora transformed the ballroom into a beautiful and classic winter wonderland.  From the custom linens on the head tablet the gold rimmed glasses it was pretty fantastic!  The draping behind the cakes by Creme de la Creme was a perfect spotlight in the room.  Once these two entered it was time to party – from dancing together, with their parents and lots of fun with friends it was a high energy night!  The day was complete with a fairy tale ending as Brooke had a Cinderalla moment losing her shoe during the exit.  Ever her prince though, Justin helped place it back on her foot and they were on their way!  I was so happy to seal my 2014 with this sweet couple.

Wedding Prettiness is created by a team and this one was a pretty fantastic one!  Thanks to all the following vendors for making Brooke’s dreams a reality:

Brooke & Justin Wedding at Piazza in the Village

Tracy Autem & Lightly Photography 2014

Brooke and Justin were our last wedding of 2014 and what a fabulous end to a spectacular year!  I just loved this couple and their wedding day, Justin was kissing on his bride or holding her tight from the moment he was allowed until the night ended.  You know that kinda feels makes for one happy photographer!  This photo above was my favorite of the day, captured right after the lighting of the unity candle these two are all smiles as they start their marriage in prayer together.  A right foundation with a couple that is truly devoted will make for one happy life.

Brooke and her ladies were prettied up all day by Tracy Melton at a nearby hotel before we headed to the Piazza where their ceremony and reception was held.  Once at the Piazza in the Village it was go go go and we stayed inside where it was warm and cozy.  During the ceremony these two were all smiles and I love shooting in this chapel because of the intimate angles I am allowed to shoot from.  After the ceremony as their family greeted the newlyweds the room was filled with laughter and love – these two are surrounded by some pretty special people that I know will be a support system through out their days.

Brooke and her Mom put together an all star team of vendors for this special day!  Thanks to all of them for making it so perfect:

Katherine & Douglas – Wedding Reception at Piazza in the Village

Tracy Autem Photography 2014 http://tracyautem.comRomantics with these two made me SO very happy!  Look at these!  Eeeeee, love!  We took advantage of the night time lights outside the Piazza in the Village plus some off camera flash love to create these dramatic images.  Daytime is always beautiful but sometimes the little bit of light that is naturally available at night can make for some stunning moments.  After some time alone Kathryn & Douglas took to the dance floor where he spun her and held her tight for a choreographed first dance.  Rod Baker with DFW Parties kept the floor packed all night as everyone fully celebrated this special night.  I loved spending their day with them and can’t wait to see what the future holds for them.  Congrats!

Thanks to all the vendors who made Douglas & Kathryn’s wedding so amazing:

Lauren & Eric Married at Piazza in the Village

Lauren and Eric were married on August 4th at The Piazza in the Village.  I love this sweet couple who just light up when they around each other.  Their wedding was fun filled and it was a pleasure to be a part of their wedding day.  Their wedding day was made perfect by the following team of vendors:

Piazza in the Village

The Cake Guys

Haute Floral

Circle Park Bridal – Brides Gown

Lasting Bridal Couture of Addison – Bridesmaids Attire

Wylie Video-Videography

My live photos-photo booth

Halo Brides – Hair and Make Up

Laurens hair and make up was stunning by Halo Salon of Fort Worth.

Lauren and her bridesmaids peeking outside to see those arriving to the church.

The girls laughing as they attempt to steam Lauren’s veil.  These machine can be tricky.

Lauren wanted to keep with tradition and not see Eric before hand but they snuck around a wall just to say hi and hold hands for a moment before the ceremony.

Lauren’s Mom was just beaming at her after helping her with the veil.

I loved that I was able to be present when Lauren’s Dad came in to see her for the first time, his expression and the hug that followed was perfect.

Flower girls make for great entertainment during ceremonies.

Married!

A stolen first dance kiss.

Private last dances are always my favorite for genuine moments.  Absolute sweetness occurred during theirs from beautiful laughs to a few spins.

Lauren and Eric had a super unique get away, light up balloons.  They looked great and were something fun to bring home at the end of a night of dancing.

Lauren & Eric {Engaged} Dallas Arboretum & Bishop Arts District Engagement Photos

Lauren & Eric were SO much fun to hang out with 2 weekends ago.  It was a super special day as after our session they were heading to reunion tower for their anniversary dinner!  I love that we got to celebrate their engagement and their anniversary together!  It was also special because Laren had just got the results back on her nursing test…she passed of course!  My brides are all smarty pants.  🙂  We explored the arboretum and then urban artsy side of Dallas in the Bishop Arts District.  Can’t wait to see these two again in August for their peackock toned wedding at the Piazza in the Village.

Featured Today on Pretty Little Weddings Blog! {Part 2} Glamorous Wedding Photos

If you loved Lindsey & Jason’s vintage engagement session yesterday then you will definitely fall in love with today’s feature on Pretty Little Weddings.  Their wedding was a nod to old Hollywood glamor with feather and pear details and vintage inspired attire at Piazza in the Village.  Thanks so much to the Pretty Little Weddings editors for featuring my work and the unique do it your self details that Lindsey & Jason created.

Lindsey & Jason {Married} Part 2 – Momments at The Piazza in the Village

I think that this couple’s vows to each other were perhaps some of the sweetest I have ever heard.  They made me cry, perhaps because as Lindsey vowed to be a Godly wife and some day Mom it reminded me of my own vows I said on my wedding day.  Personal vows are difficult to write and I know from experience that it feels a little daunting BUT I think it is the best way to truly personalize your ceremony and your commitment to one another.  If their marriage just almost lives up to their promises it will be a love filled home with a ton of laughter.  Their day was full of  moments that tugged at my heart strings and every person there.

Stacey, Linsey’s sister, is helping her with her birdcage veil.  I can’t wait to get a photo similar to this at Stacey’s wedding later next year with Lindsey helping her.

An embrace from Jason and Lindsey’s Dad before he takes her as his wife.

Jason was SO happy to see his bride.  Sarah Halferty snagged this photo right as he took her arm to lead her up the stairs to the altar.

Their ceremony was full of emotion from tears to laughter.  The pastor did a great job telling some funny stories from their past.

Lindsey’s sister and best friend looking on as she laughs.

See, I wasn’t the only one crying.

ADORE how Lindsey clutched her chest and Jason said his vows.

Celebrating after pronounced man and wife.

A private moment.

Completely not sure what the flower girl is doing but I saw it as I was shooting formals and asked Sarah to get it and I am glad she did.

Lindsey & her Dad during their dance.

Jason and his Mom twirling around the floor.They look like three sisters but the beautiful one on the right is their Mommy.

Toasts were hilarious and emotional.

Jason is one FINE dancer.  His brothers weren’t too bad either.  They had fun.

Those guys were really wanting that garter (photo by Sarah Halferty)
