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.

Allie & Kane – Getting Ready & First LookRenaissance Worthington Hotel

Tracy Autem Photography 2014 http://tracyautem.com

I think that this reaction is exactly what pretty much every girl hopes for.  Kane was SO ready to see Allie, and she was ready to.  Just before I had him turn around she was getting teary eyed with anticipation.  He was bouncing with excitement.  Hands down my favorite part of my job – the gut reaction of seeing his bride!  This one amazing part of this day is just the icing on the cake as the entire day pretty much rocked.  I don’t think there was a single thing that wasn’t perfect!

 

Before the big reveal Allie & Kane prepared for their day in their suites at the Renaissance Worthington Hotel in downtown Fort Worth.  Allie and her bridesmaids played on the balcony, got all prettied up by the hair and makeup team and had us all laughing.  Kane and his gentlemen cut up and had fun together and he even tried on his spurs that were a gift at the rehearsal dinner the night before.

 

Check back tomorrow for more!  This one was a long 12 hour day with so many photo ops so it will be several posts.  🙂  Lots of photo goodness!

 

Thanks to the vendor team for making the day so beautiful:

I have said it before and it’s time to say it again.  BEST part of every wedding – THIS!  After the couple walks out of the church their first moments as man and wife are the best.  I GET to be with them for it and it just makes my day.  Love that as they exited the church this couple immediately was all hugs, squeezes and big smiles.

Madison and Holt prepared for their wedding at The Renaissance Worthington in downtown Fort Worth.  Madison selected to have her Mom & Sister help her with dressing and then surprising her bridesmaids with a big reveal in her gown.  We always love the reactions on friends faces to the bride!  Holt and his men took over the lobby for final details.  After arriving at TCU the couple selected to share a private moment with out seeing one another around a door.  A few quick words of good luck, and see you soon before it was time to head down the aisle at Robert Carr Chapel.

Check back for their fun wedding reception at The Modern!  Thank you to their vendor team:
