Laura – Bridal Portraits at Botanic Gardens of Fort Worth

Tracy Autem 2015

I am so ready for warm temperatures and sunny days with all this rain!  I am thinking back to this gorgeous girl’s bridal portraits last summer at The Botanic Gardens of Fort Worth.  I loved her fluffy fun gown by Stardust Celebrations.  The corset detailed  top was sexy yet elegant and was perfectly accented with a belt.  Laura’s look was pulled together by the Styling Stewardess and BA Beauty.  Look at that classic pale bouquet with subtle colors by Lush Couture!  Cheers to brighter days ahead!

Meredith & Michael – Wedding Reception at The Room on Main, Dallas

Tracy Autem 2015

Meredith & Michael were so much fun to party with!  After a touching ceremony and a few portraits at Preston Hollow Church we headed downtown to the Room on Main!  It is a gorgeous venue with an amazing view of downtown Dallas.  The room decor was glamorous and classic with winter whites and touches of black and white and some little nods to the season with pine cones and greenery.

 

During the first dance Meredith smiled so much – I don’t think there was a second where she wasn’t smiling!  I just loved watching how much joy these two had in each others arms.  As the night went on so many sweet words were said during toasts – lots of laughter and silliness of course!  When it was time to party the band brought it!  They love to dance to Uptown Funk together – it is kind of their song.  Michael was out of the room when it played and when a girl in a white dress wants a song again – you do it!  So, the band cued it back up and played it for the happy couple and it was so awesome.  They were so fun together and it was my favorite moment from the reception.

 

Thanks Meredith and Michael for having us at your wedding – I love you guys and can’t wait to see what your future brings!

 

Huge thank you to Chloe with Stylish Soiree who made this wedding SO fun to work and made sure every detail came together.  All the vendors made it peferct!

Meredith & Michael – Wedding Ceremony at Preston Hollow Church Dallas

Tracy Autem 2015

This day was pretty top notch – these two and their families are so sweet and loving.  They made my team and I feel like we were part of the family and it was a complete pleasure to share this day with them.

 

We met up with Meredith and her ladies at her parents home to hang out and prepare for the wedding.  Meredith has a beautiful group of friends and they looked gorgeous in their floor length black bella bridesmaids dresses.  After hanging at home it was off to Preston Hollow Presbyterian where we turned up the emotion as Meredith dressed in her gown and shared some sweet moments with her parents.  Her Daddy’s face when he saw his daughter, as a bride, just had me teary and then when they gathered to gather to give her a special wedding day present I lost it.  Every girl loves a blue jewelry box but a tiffany’s pearl necklace on your wedding day is more than a gift – it is a keepsake, an heriloom that some day her little girl may wear on her own wedding day.  So perfect!

 

Michael and the guys were hanging at his home for some classic goofing off guy style before heading to the church where he anxiously awaited seeing his bride.  His back turned, Meredith walked down the aisle to him and when he turned to see her…..wow.  These two are totally love and I could see the stress and anxiety melt as they were finally together.  It was so sweet to hear them catch up, check out each other’s duds and give some really big hugs.  It was a super cold day for their wedding but we got lucky with no rain for a brief moment to head outside for a few romantic portraits of the couple.

 

As the sun went down, the bagpiper played to welcome their guest and the church sanctuary filled.  When the doors opened Michael cried (a little) and Meredith looked perfect in every way.  🙂

No wedding would be complete without a well thought out team of vendors:

Laura & Greg – Wedding Reception at Fort Worth Club

fort worth club wedding ceremony broadway baptist church tracy autem photogrpahy classic traditional timeless elegant luxury lush couture laura greg-55 Fort Worth Club is always a favorite of mine, it is so elegant and timeless and it was the perfect place for this classic couple to share their wedding with family and friends.  After a sweet ceremony at Broadway Baptist Church it was time to open up a night of celebration with a first dance.  As these two danced all eyes were on them – they were so cute, just looking at one another and smiling as Greg twirled and spun Laura as the danced as husband and wife for the first time.   The ballroom looked fabulous with design help from planner Deanie Michelle and florist Deitra with Lush Couture.  Loved the neutral palette though out the room except for the fun pop of pink on the head table.  It made the grande table even more of a statement drawing your eyes to all the textured pink floral.  In the Terrace lounge furniture framed their cake display by Creme de la Creme & The Fort Worth Club.  Once dinner came to an end Laura shared a dance with her Daddy and Greg danced with his Mommy and his Grandma.  I loved this lady, she reminded me SO much of my own Grandmother and she just doted on her grandson, the groom.  You could see how full of joy she was to see him married and to be made special on his day.  As the dance floor was opened Grandma didn’t take a seat but instead stayed on the floor dancing and laughing with Laura and other friends and family.  It really warmed my heart watching her all night.   Laura and Greg were ultimate cuties – I can’t even count how many photos I have of them kissing, scrunching up their faces all close together and generally being amazing as they danced.  The band pulled the couple on to the stage as the night came to a close to help with a song before the departure in the lobby.   Thank you guys for allowing us to be with you.  Watching you families and friends – I could see how much they loved both of you and the joy it brought all of them to see you married.  It did the same for me, you two are pretty fabulous AND as I said Greg – you win an AWESOME GROOM award for being so dang cool.  🙂 Laura and her Mom pulled together a pretty amazing team of vendors, thanks to everyone of you for making this day so fun and beautiful!

Laura & Greg – Wedding Ceremony at Broadway Baptist Fort Worth

fort worth club wedding ceremony broadway baptist church tracy autem photogrpahy classic traditional timeless elegant luxury lush couture laura greg-51

Laura & Greg are just the sweetest.  I hadn’t gotten to meet Greg until the wedding day but the moment I walked in to the room he made me feel right at home with a warm smile and a great handshake.  I love my brides but the truth is that the groom’s are really the ones responsible for me falling head over heels for a couple.  Why?  Because when a man is a gentlemen, laid back, fun, caring and totally devoted in love with his bride that kicks them up a notch as a couple in my books.  🙂  While Sarah hung out with the boys I spent time with Laura and her lovely ladies as they dressed and got all prettied (check out those swooping backs on those bridesmaids gowns).  The BA Beauty & Styling Stewardess teams did a great job making each one of the ladies look fabulous – especially Greg’s grandma who had her makeup professionally applied for the first time in her life!  You are never to old for some pampering my friends!

 

As we arrived at Broadway Baptist it was time to slip Laura into her gorgeous gown with a fabulous corset inspired top and big full skirt with texture.  As all her friends watched Laura was all smiles and butterflies to see her groom.  Mom helped Laura with her finishing touches and held her hand before it was time to say I do.  Greg and his boys were all laughs and wore some pretty sweet pink socks.

 

Laura and her Daddy walked the aisle as Greg got a little teary seeing his bride walk towards him.  After a perfect little ceremony these two were married and we quickly snuck in some photos outside as the sun set.  It was pretty amazing.  Can’t wait to share all the fun of their Fort Worth Club reception tomorrow!

 

Laura and her Mom pulled together a pretty amazing team of vendors, thanks to everyone of you for making this day so fun and beautiful!

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!

Brooke – Bridal Portrait at Rosewood Mansion at Turtle Creek

Bridal Portraits Mansion at Turtle Creek Tracy Autem Photography-0004

Brooke was a stunning bride for her December wedding and she rocked her gorgeous dress from Stardust Celebrations at her bridal portraits at The Mansion at Turtle Creek earlier last year.  Her lace gown was perfectly accented with the delicately trimmed veil.  Her hair and makeup team, Tracy Melton, stayed on site during her shoot and we did a quick hair change from down to up.  It is so hard to decide on a hair style for the big day and Brooke was able to see both before selecting the half up half down look for her wedding.  The flowers from Bella Flora complimented the lace details and made her look complete.  Brooke & Justin’s wedding was a super fun one to end the year in 2014.  If you missed it check out her wedding blogs:  Ceremony & Reception at Piazza in the Village.

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:

Sarah – Bridal Portraits in a Private Residence

Sarah’s bridals were truly special even if things didn’t go as planned.  We had hoped for a beautiful May day where we could take advantage of her parents ranch property.  Well, it rained.  Yeah, it was not ideal BUT luckily the inside of her Mom & Dad’s home is just as beautiful as the outside as we took advantage of its nooks and crannies.  Love this girl, her hubby and their families and I am so happy that I got to go on this journey with them.  Congratulations again Sarah!
