Bethany & Tyler – Wedding Reception at The Ashton DepotFort Worth, Texas

This wedding reception is one I will likely never forget.  At the end of the night I told Tyler that he is one of the coolest and most fun groom’s I have ever worked with.  Tyler and Bethany both are a joy to be around and they made the best of their 4 hour reception.  I am pretty sure they danced, hugged, talked and laughed with at least every guest they had.  From the moment they walked in the tone was set for a killer night – as the doors opened and the band announced the Mr & Mrs and played “All I do is Win”  these two entered the reception arms in the air and tore up the dance floor before their first dance had even begun.  Their entrance was epic and it didn’t stop there.  Reception’s are about more than the couple – they are about all the invited guest and loved ones.  During this party I loved watching the parents interact with one another and their children.  We caught Tyler hugging Bethany’s parents, chatting up his Dad and brother and being a little crazy on the stage with the band.  Bethany sang with the band from the dance floor, had fun dancing beside her husband and stole lots of kisses from him all night.

To top all of that – Bethany and Tyler are my 4th couple in a group of friends I have been so lucky to photograph.  Having 3 of my past couples dancing along side me as I captured this night was priceless.  Building relationships with my couples and seeing them time and again at other friends weddings is such a huge reward.  I’m looking forward to sharing the dance floor with all 8 of them next year at another one!

Bethany & Tyler – Wedding Ceremony at Robert Carr ChapelTCU Fort Worth, Texas

Hey!  Look at this beautifully remodeled and fresh new look at Robert Carr Chapel!  The iconic church on the campus of Texas Christian University just finished a long renovation earlier this month and I was SO excited to see it finished.  I love the updated color palette, new floors, expanded altar and all the amazing amenities they have added.  Can’t wait for all  my upcoming weddings here!

Okay, enough about the new look at Robert Carr – back to Bethany & Tyler!  Before walking down the aisle Bethany’s friends laid hands on her and prayed over her, the wedding and her life ahead as a Mrs.  It was so sweet!  During the ceremony these two were all smiles and I can’t blame them – I was too!  Their pastor was hilarious – he gave a challenging word of inspiration.  Pushing them to seek after a marriage that was full, overflowing and rich in all things – like a big gulp!  Yes, a big gulp, and he had the cup to drive the point home as a prop!  After saying I do, embracing the idea of a marriage that is MORE they kissed and it was done!  They were married!

Robert Carr isn’t just gorgeous inside, it is outside as well and we took some beautiful photos of these two on the steps and around the chapel.

Look at how cute and excited these two were to finally see each other!  Bethany knew she wanted a location that was green and lush for her first sight with Tyler.  We selected Trinity Park for just that reason and it was gorgeous!  Right before he turned I asked him what he thought her dress might look like and he may have been a little off on his expectations but he was not disappointed when he turned to see Bethany.  After some photos of the two of them alone they were joined by their bridesmaids and groomsmen for wedding party photos.

Bethany & Tyler – Wedding Preperations at Renaissance Worthington HotelFort Worth, Texas

Bethany & Tyler are married and this day was so full of emotion, happy moments and lots of partying that I had to split all the awesomeness up into 4 blogs!  Today we are taking a look at Bethany and Tyler preparing for their wedding at the Renaissance Worthington Hotel in downtown Fort Worth.

 

Bethany dressed in her suite surrounded by her friends and Mom.  Her gorgeous  lace gown by Pronovias with a plunging neckline was elegant and sensual and she looked stunning!  Her updo emphasized the dress’ lines and her back.  Bethany wore earrings from the Kendra Scott bridal collection and an heirloom bracelet – we all got a little emotional as Mom placed it on her wrist.  My favorite thing was her reveal with Dad – he entered the room with eyes closed and when told to open them the photo above was the result.  I loved how Mom was looking at her hubby to see the reaction he would have to their gorgeous daughter.  It was super sweet and hugs were quick to follow!

Tyler and his boys had FUN while the got ready (that is kind of his thing!)  He is really a sweet and loving guy who embraces laughter, silliness and allot of dancing.  So his preparation time was full of silly selfies, shots and a side of dancing.

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!

Elisabeth & William – Wedding Reception at Fort Worth Club

 

After Elisabeth and Will’s ceremony at Holy Family Catholic Church we head to Fort Worth Club to start the party!  The night was full and fun and the dance floor was packed from start to finish.  It was clear that everyone enjoyed themselves and these two love birds made me smile all night long behind my camera.  Every couple touches my heart in different ways, these two, when they danced, ahhhhhhh.  It was beautiful to watch them have fun together, be silly and crazy then so soft and sweet.  To see more of their night check out their wedding highlight reel:

It was BRRRRR cold outside but we sacrificed warmth for a few minutes to get this elegant downtown city lights shot at night.

These white lantern’s lined the hallway as you entered the reception space.  Along with the mirrors, windows and up-lighting  the play of light was magnificent (as seen below.)

Every little detail was perfect from the crystals suspended in water to the tiniest vase of white floral.

I adored Elisabeth’s Sara Gabriel head piece from Bliss Bridal she wore for the reception.

The couple dancing with their parents.

I think the cake tasted good! 🙂

Go Frogs!  Both Elisabeth and Will attended TCU.

The dance floor is open!  Even Dad (above) and Grandma (below) got in on the action.

Have I mentioned I love her Pronovias gown, yep.  I LOVE it.  Look at how it moves!

A perfect kiss caught right before they walked out to their send off.

Congrats!

Elisabeth & William – Wedding at Holy Family Catholic Church with Preparations at Fort Worth Club

Elisabeth and Will’s wedding day was a dream come true.  Every moment was beautiful and it was a complete privilege to be able to document their day.  From the moment Elisabeth slipped her Pronovias dress on she took my breath away and continued to do so the rest of the evening.  Their love is beautiful and watching them together made me truly happy – yep, I am lucky to do what I do!  This favorite above is from moments after their first look at The Fort Worth Club before heading over to Holy Catholic Family Church.  Multiple reflections and natural light make it scrumptious.  Read on for more about their preparations, first look and ceremony.

What girl doesn’t love a fabulous pair of flat shoes from Jimmy Choo, I can see her wearing these for years to come with some cute skinny jeans.

Elisabeth’s Mom is so sweet, she was so full of JOY all day!

Elisabeth’s engagement ring and signature scent for her day.

IN LOVE with this image, might be one of my most favorite getting ready shots ever.  So simple and classic.

I can always count on her for a little silliness.  It takes confidence to be such a ham and she has it in spades.

Elisabeth carried her Mother’s high school prom purse, so delicate.

Will hung out with his men, read the paper and enjoyed some laughs to counter his nerves before seeing his bride.

NOW that is how a man looks when he sees his loved all dressed in white!

AND that is how a bride looks at her soul mate.  Swoon!

A little fix to make him perfect.

Loved Elisabeth’s bouquet by Deitra with Lush Couture Floral.  To make it even more special she carried a rosary  blessed by the pope, given to her by her Godmother.

Classic bunches of white floral adorning the church pews.

Will awaiting his bride at the altar.

Here comes the bride!

Their priest gave excellent marriage advice and I think they were taking it all in.

Smiles all around as Will said his vows to his beloved.

Slipping the ring upon her finger, she is now his.

This was a beautiful part of the ceremony, the god parents of Elisabeth presented an alms (I think that is what they called it.)  Will promised to take care of Elisabeth and others in the way that Christ served, it was touching.

First photo as husband and wife and OH so cute!

It was a cold day so we only ran out for a minute before seeking warmth but it was worth it!

Look at those ladies!  Gorgeous in the Bliss Bridal attire!

Elisabeth – Bridal Portraiture at The Dallas Arboretum

Well, Elisabeth is FINALLY married so I can share her super fabulous bridal portraits.  This girl had an amazing line up for her wedding day and you can see it in her bridals.  Her Pronovias Gown was found at Bliss Bridal and her white classic bouquet was provided by Deitra with Lush Couture Floral.  Hair and Makeup was put perfectly together by Halo Salon.  Her look was very Jane Austen in a romantic vintage way that makes my heart swoon.  It was hard to pick just a few to share as I had so many favorites!  Later this week check back for her Fort Worth Club Wedding planned and designed by Julie Eastman with Extraordinary Events.

 

Mr & Mrs Matt Hensley – A Dallas Wedding at Maple Manor

Dallas Wedding Photographer Tracy Autem Maple Manor Hotel Ceremony Bride Groom Recessional

Married!

This day was all about the moments.  I love documenting what happens at weddings and for Ashley and Matt that is what I did.  The day started off at the Warwick Hotel in Dallas where we photographed Ashley and her girls getting ready.  Ashley is absolutely stunning but when I met her Mom and Grandma I could see not only where she got her looks but her amazingly sweet personality.  Her Grandma had me just grinning ear to ear because she was so full of joy!  Ashley had a drop dead gown by Pronovias, one of my favorite designers.  Sarah Rizy headed off to Maple Manor where the ceremony was held to catch some getting ready photos of the guys before we sequestered Matt away as Ashley arrived leading up to the ceremony.  It may have been hot last weekend but everyone braved it and it was well worth it as we had a pretty blue sky and a touching ceremony.  Matt is all about dipping Ashley so I was ready for it and captured it right after their first kiss as man and wife and before Ashley threw up her arms in victory at becoming Mrs. Hensley!  Here are some photos of their Dallas Wedding with part 2 coming soon highlighting their non-stop dance party reception and highlights slide show.
