Charissa & Damon – Wedding Ceremony & Reception at City Club Fort Worth

Lightly Photography 2016

Charissa & Damon had a beautiful wedding at City Club of Fort Worth and I am so excited to finally share!  These two met over 6 years ago and through their courtship they have enjoyed lots of fun, sporting events and growing together as a team.  Now they are on to life’s next adventure – as husband and wife!

We met up with this adorable couple at City Club where they spent their day from getting ready, the ceremony and the reception.  Charissa and her girls were glammed by the Beauty and the Blush hair and makeup team.  Charissa looked stunning with her classic undo and clean lined ball gown dress.  I was completely smitten with the bodice and the ribbon detailing on the bottom.  It reminded me of a 50’s starlet on the red carpet!  Damon and his guys hung out and helped him keep calm leading up to the ceremony.

After their ceremony we slipped out onto the balcony for some fun night time shots with the city lights behind them before spending the rest of the night on the dance floor!  Damon is all smiles when he has his arms wrapped around his wife and it was so sweet watching them together.  We had such a great time celebrating with them!

This day was made perfect with a fabulous vendor team:

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:

Amanda & John – Wedding Reception at City Club of Fort Worth

Tracy Autem 2014

After a perfect ceremony these two headed over to party with their friends and family at The City Club of Fort Worth.  From the time they entered the room until the last dance the room was full of energy, the dance floor was full and we hall had SO much fun!  I love a groom that spends more time on the dance floor or at his brides side than anywhere else so John is a fave of mine!  Amanda and her friends barely ever stepped off the dance floor, I know they had to be tired at the end of this night!  My favorite part of the day as always was their private last dance.  There is something so magical about the couple alone in their reception space, sharing a moment without all their guests before they say farewell.  Always a tear jerker, always makes me smile and always makes for beautiful images!

Congrats Amanda & John!  I have loved getting to know you and being apart of your journey!

Tracey & Luis – Wedding Reception at Thistle Springs Ranch

 

Thistle Springs ranch outdoor wedding reception barn classic tracy autem photography tracey luis-4

After the I do’s it was time to party…well after some beautiful portraits at least.  By the time I had these two all to myself for some romantic imagery the light was golden and pretty much perfection.  These two just beam in each others presence.  I could have photographed just them all night but we had to get the party started and they did that from the moment they walked in. Led into their reception by the Walton Stout Band horn section it set the tone for a night with a full dance floor and happy hearts.  From the first dance until the last the guests drank, ate, danced and enjoyed the party to celebrate the start of Tracey & Luis’ life together.  Luis is all about the formula one racing so of course he had to have a racing themed cake that was created by Sugar Bee sweets.  It was super cool!  To throw in a little bit of family heritage there was lots of latin dancing and the Hora (Jewish chair dancing tradition).  The day felt like these two, it was so personalized.  Congrats!

Huge thank you to all the vendors that helped pull Tracy & Luis’ ranch wedding reception together:

Tracey & Luis – Wedding at Thistle Springs Ranch

Tracy Autem 2014

Tracey and Luis are too cute for words and I am head over heals with this first photo, after kissing at the altar and twice in the aisle on their way out they still immediately kissed and embraced once out of sight from all their guests.  I think that is a record!  4 kisses in a matter of seconds, these two couldn’t keep away from each other once they were finally together!  Before they were married though we had a blast getting ready and getting down the aisle.  From the moment I walked into the room Tracey was all smiles!  Since prior to the wedding Tracey was not able to do bridal portraits we took some time out before the ceremony and hiked over to a treed area by the water for some stunning photos of her alone in her Bliss Bridal gown.  Luis and his boys prepped in the loft where his brother helped him get dressed and he got a touch teary reading the note Tracey wrote him.  During the ceremony it was Tracey’s turn to get teared up and Luis, the gentleman that he is, wiped her tears away.  They really could not be more adorable and in love!

Check back tomorrow for their reception and wedding slide show!

Lindsey & Christian – Wedding Reception at The Colonial Country Club

Tracy Autem 2014

The Colonial Country Club was perfectly elegant for this classic couple.  With red, black and white details and floral the ballroom was gorgeous.  After the couple kicked off the night with their first dance we headed out to capture some golden light near the green.  The course is always a great backdrop at the golden hour and it did not disappoint.  I love that even during romantic portraits these two were laughing and capturing that is better than any pose.  THEN we partied – the dace floor was full all night, cake was delicious and dinner filled everyone to satisfaction.  It was a great night as I enjoyed shaking my tail along with this couple and all their friends.

I am so excited for what the future holds for you two!  Congratulations and be blessed in all things!

Lindsey & Christian – Wedding at FUMC Hurst & Bridals at Thistle Hill

Tracy Autem 2014

Lindsey and Christian are adorably sweet – just look above to see the proof.  This sweet moment in the choir closet at their church just moments after their ceremony embodies EVERYTHING I love about weddings and my job.  My couples, being real, genuine, in a moment “alone” some how loosing themselves in each other even though I am watching.  Right after the wedding ends is probably my favorite part of the day – I love seeing how my couples react to the fact that they are FINALLY married.  I think Lindsey & Christian have a beautiful Christ centered relationship and I can’t wait to see how they continue to grow together.

Their day was full of these love filled moments but they were equally balanced with lots of laughs and fun.  From the moment I arrived at Lindsey’s house for prep photos her gals and her were cutting up, telling stories and smiling from ear to ear.  From almost dropping an earring down her dress to a hilarious moment around the corner at the church between the couple, their great attitudes and easy going spirits were so refreshing.  What is even more remarkable about this couple is God’s timing, attending the same church growing up, even the same youth group and activities neither of them ever really “saw” the other.  Then at the right time, after college, they took notice and it was amazing to hear the pastor who once ministered to them as teens marry them in that same church.

Also included in this post are a few of Lindsey’s bridal portraits we took a few months ago at Thistle Hill in Fort Worth. This historic mansion is a fabulous place for a session with a vintage antique flair.

Check back tomorrow for more images from their Colonial Country Club wedding!

Lindsey & Collin – Wedding Reception at Room On Main in Dallas

After Lindsey & Colin’s beautiful wedding ceremony at Highland Park Presbyterian we headed to downtown Dallas for their rocking wedding reception.  We started the evening with a few quick photos on the roof of the Room on Main for some spectacular city views before hitting the dance floor!  All night we enjoyed spectacular cuisine and entertainment.  Colin and his gang of groomsmen kept us busy on the dance floor with their entertaining and some times comical dance moves.  For treats we had a delicious Sugar Bee Sweets brides cake and for the groom ice cream cookie sandwiches!  It was such a cute idea and the guests were lined up for both.  As the night drew to a close the couple shared a private last dance before a sparkler send off in their vintage Bentley.  Congrats you two!

Emily & Riley – Wedding at McKinney Cotton Mill

 This above photo shows off Riley’s signature move.  He always covers Emily’s sweet face with his hands as he kisses her, I love it.

Emily & Riley were married at The McKinney Cotton Mill.  It was an amazing day and I adored capturing this couples love fore each other and the Lord.  Their families and friends had so much joy and there was a definite feeling of peace and celebration.  We met up with Emily and her girls at The Grand Hotel in down town McKinney where they prepared before heading over to the Cotton Mill.  The sun started to set right before the ceremony so the light was amazing and it started to cool.  Their ceremony was full of inspiration including my favorite hymn, Be Thou My Vision.  You know I was singing along as I photographed.  After spending some time alone for portraits the couple entered their reception where Glenn Roush entertained us all night.  The evening was full of surprises like a Disney melody sung in duet.  I think every girl there was signing along to Ariel the little Mermaid’s song.  I hope that these two truly have a fairy tale ending and no matter what bumps along the rode their marriage may have they continue to rely upon the Lord and hold fast on one another.

 Here are all the vendors that made their day memorable:

Shelby-Marilee and Company – Hair and Make Up

Glenn Roush – Entertainment and Lighting

Sugar Bee Sweets – Cakes

Ocones – Bridal Gown & Bridesmaids dresses

Riley got a little choked up looking at his beautiful bride to be.

How can you not adore their cuteness??

Lots of laughs and sweet moments during the ceremony.

Perfect embrace right after the ceremony.

The girls helping Emily dry her tears with out smearing her make up.  Those are some good friends.

We had perfect light!

Swoon x 10!  Love their faces, body language, the whole thing!

Riley doing his MOVE again.

Emily was a sweet bride and her dress from Ocones was perfect for her style.

Their details were perfectly vintage shabby chic and understated in an elegant way.  I was SUPER impressed with all the floral by Branching Out.  I am not usually a lover of boutonnieres but let me say they were unique and astonishing in every way.

A laugh caught during their first dance.

Emily’s Dad had a sweet and LONG toast but in a good way.  He surprised the couple with a duet of Disney Songs ending with Ariel the Little Mermaids “look at this stuff”.  As a little girl Emily always said she wanted to marry Eric and what to you know, Riley kind of looks like him!

This was Emily’s reaction to the Ariel song, LOVE!!!

Sorority Sisters!!!

Private last dance and then off and away!
