Katherine & Ben – Wedding Reception at Fort Worth ClubFort Worth, Texas

Katherine & Ben know how to have a good time.  When planning their wedding they wanted to provide an amazing party and an unforgettable night for their loved ones.  Tami Winn events designed an elegant space and highlighted the white dance floor with a floral halo above – there was no doubt where all the action would be.  Bringing Jordan Kahn and his band in ensured that almost every guest would squish on to that dance floor and never leave.  It was a super fun night and Katherine & Ben hardly left each other’s side – I can’t even count how many times they shared kisses and sweet embraces among the crowd.

 

Thank you so much for allowing me to capture your day, get to know you both and be witness to your love and zeal for life.  Love you guys!

Katherine & Ben – Wedding Ceremony at Christ ChapelFort Worth, Texas

Katherine & Ben are married!  I had such a fabulous time with this couple and their families and friends.  One of the best parts of my job is seeing past clients at weddings and we had a few of our past couples and some parents at this one – so nice to catch up and see their smiling faces.

We kicked off their day getting ready at Fort Worth Club.  You know it’s a good wedding when I am crying behind my camera before the ceremony even begins.  I LOVE Katherine’s Grandma, when she walked in to see her granddaughter it was one of the sweetest moments ever!  To see 3 generations together just connecting with joy about the day that was about to unfold was priceless.  Katherine wanted to have a special moment with her Daddy before heading to the church so we did a reveal in the gorgeous mirrored hallway at the club.

Katherine and Ben wanted their faith and focus on Christ to be apparent in their marriage and the ceremony.  The ceremony at Christ Chapel was beautiful and Ben totally made me cry a second time when Katherine walked down the aisle.  Ben was overwhelmed seeing his beautiful wife – I caught him wiping his tears before taking her arm.  During the ceremony Katherine’s sister sang a special song while the couple shared their first communion as husband and wife.

Thank you to everyone who made this emotionally charged wedding beautiful:

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

I am so full of happiness for Taylor & Tyler.  They are super cute together and I can tell that they really and completely “get” each other.  From the moment I met them I knew – they are kind, genuine, loving to all and really have compassion for those around them.  They are good people and together they are great!

 

As they prepared for their wedding I loved the excitement in the room.  Although nothing matched Taylor’s excitement as she opened her pre-wedding gift.  A stuffed puppy!  This little lovey isn’t just to hold but as a sign to come – the golden doodle Tyler found her as a wedding present. Her favorite dog – her obsession.  Tyler knows her well!  I also loved our first look with Dad – Dad’s always make me cry when they see their little girls all dressed in white!

 

At the chapel as these two said their vows and exchanged rings there were lots of smiles and sweet moments.  These two wrote their own vows filled with funny quips that got a laugh from everyone!

 

Shoutout to the vendor team that made Taylor & Tyler’s wedding day so beautiful!

Jennifer & Stephen – Wedding Ceremony at La Cantera ResortSan Antonio, Texas

For this amazing Texas Destination wedding we traveled to La Cantera Resort outside of San Antonio.  This couple found a happy medium between being away and doing something accessible to their family and friends.  They spent several days pool side with their favorite people and had a beautiful wedding celebration on property at the resort.  Jennifer & Stephen have known each other since high school but have just been dating the last few years as life brought them back together.

 

Prior to the ceremony Jennifer and Stephen wanted to stay traditional but still share a special moment together.  Around the corner – without seeing one another – they exchanged gifts, had a few sweet moments and some laughter together.  I loved this surprised look as Jennifer saw her gift – she really wanted two bands to compliment her engagement ring but Stephen said that would have to wait – but he was tricky!  She was so excited!

 

During the ceremony overlooking the Texas Hill Country these two said I do!

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:
