Ashley & Josh – Wedding Ceremony at Holly Redeemer Catholic ChurchAledo, Texas

Ashley & Josh’s wedding ceremony was precious!  These two were married at their family church in Aledo where they live.  During the ceremony I loved all the stolen little glances, smiles and moments – like when Ashley asked the priest if he was going to have them kiss.  He had almost forgotten!  During the ceremony their flower girl tried to steal the show but she could not outdo how gorgeous Ashley looked!

Thanks again to the vendor team:

Ashley & Josh – Wedding First Look & Prep at Omni HotelFort Worth, Texas

Ashley & Josh are married and it was an amazingly perfect day!  What I love is that these two met at a wedding!  So I guess it was in the cards from day 1!  Here is their beginning story:

“Josh and I met 1 year ago at my cousin’s wedding. Josh met my cousins andmy brother at A&M. As I was sitting in church, I got a text from my brother (an usher) saying, “I want you to date the guy to your left). Obviously, I looked and it made things really awkward because he totally saw me checking him out. At the reception, everyone had caught on to the master plan. I would walk by and someone would yell…”There she is! Go talk to her!” or “Josh, come here, we have someone that wants to meet you!” (Neither of us had agreed to any of this) My brother decided to tell Josh that I wanted to dance and vise versa. So me being shy, I begged for him to say I couldn’t dance. So we danced a few songs and the rest was history!” – Ashley

Isn’t that the best?  My best moment from their day is the one above!  During the first look Ashley brought her had up to Josh’s face and realized he hadn’t shaved!  Their was some definite confusion on his expected grooming but they laughed it off and I think he looked dashing and so like himself!

Thanks to the following vendors who made the day so amazing!

Abbey & Andrew – Wedding Ceremony at University BaptistFort Worth, Texas

I just LOVE Abbey and Andrew – from a chance meeting in Texas to moving across country and finding love these two were drawn to one another.  Their lives were orchestrated so that they just had to be together and when you are with them you know it is GOOD.

We met up at the Renaissance Worthington to capture these two get ready for their big day along side there friends and family.  It was rainy outside but inside everyone was having fun, laughing and making toasts to all the goodness that was this wedding day.  Abbey had her Mom help her into her gown upstairs while her bridesmaids dressed and anxiously awaited the BIG reveal.  But, before she went downstairs Daddy came up to see his daughter all dressed in white.  He brought her a bracelet and they hugged it out and made this photographer totally get teary!  (I love Daddy Daughter moments!!!)  Then as she walked downstairs those bridesmaids squealed and smiled to see their friend looking SO beautiful!  The guys toasted some whiskey and Andrew chatted with his Grandpa as he prepped to see his bride.

At the church it was go time and you could see how anxious Andrew was for those doors to open, when it did he was all smiles and tight lipped holding back those tears – Abbey was breathtaking!  Through out the ceremony we had laughter, smiles and sweet glances.  It was perfection.  Their minister, a family member, was awesome and made everything about the ceremony so personal and deep.

After these two were officially wed, God gave us a beautiful gift and stopped the  misty rain just long enough for us to steal 3 minutes outside before family portraits began.  This California couple hoped for sunshine days but at least we got a moment without the rainy skies.

Thank you to all the vendors who made this day so perfect:

Nicole – Bridal Portrait at Dallas ArboretumDallas, Texas

Nicole was a gorgeous bride with a big heart, lovely smile and a happiness that is infectious.  Her wedding last year at the Adolphus was fun filled and I so loved getting to know her parents and Kyle’s family.  I always get the blues after weddings are over because I really build such a closeness with my brides that I want to have excuses to see them forever.  Today I am revisiting this lovely lady and sharing her bridal portraits.  Photographed last spring at the Dallas Arboretum.  Nicole found her dress at the Bridal Boutique of Lewisville and her flowers are by Fleurs & Events.  It was super HOT this day and she brought the best crew of ladies to help her out.  With cousins and bridesmaids at her side they brought mini fans to keep Nicole cool, carried things are cracked us al up.  A wedding is made special by the couple but it is furthered by those close to them that they choose to include – Nicole definitely has great people in her life and that mad her bridal session a day I will not forget!

Caitlin – Bridal Portraits at The Crescent HotelDallas, Texas

Hardest part of my job hands down is sitting on images that I can’t share.  Now that wedding season is coming to a close be prepared for an influx of beautiful bridal portraits!  Caitlin’s bridal session was at The Crescent Hotel, a Rosewood Property, in Dallas.  Her sleek and stunning gown with lace detailing, illusion mid-drift and neckline are the perfect mixture of alluring and elegant.  The clean lines and greenery of the Crescen’ts outdoor spaces played well with the subtle organic nature of her gown and the indoor spaces added some drama.  Caitlin’s look was pulled together with some help of some amazing vendors:

Caitlin & Jordan – Wedding Reception at the Dallas Petroleum ClubDallas, Texas

Caitlin & Jordan’s Dallas Petroleum Club wedding reception was fun filled and beautiful!  Caitlin knows what she likes and I could feel her aesthetic throughout her ballroom decor.  Her florist, Bryan Long, brought her vision to life with dripping flowers from the chandeliers and large scale topiaries mixed with lower lush pieces.  Along with candlelight, seating vignettes and lighting the space was warm, inviting and elegant.  From the first dance to the last dance these two were so fun to capture smile, laugh and dance with their family and friends.  Above for their private last dance I pulled them off the dance floor and into the  middle of their ballroom so we could not only capture their extreme cuteness but the feeling of the space they created.

Caitlin & Jordan – I love you guys.  Thanks for being so gracious, kind and friendly to me and my team.  You made us feel important and that connection led to lots of happy tears and smiles behind my camera.  Thanks for being the last of 2016 and setting the tone so well going into next year.  I know God has great things for you both!

Caitlin & Jordan – Wedding Ceremony at the Sky LobbyDallas, Texas

The Sky Lobby at Chase Tower in Dallas, Texas was the most perfect backdrop for this modern couple’s wedding ceremony.  Before heading upstairs to say I do we captured some romantic images in front of the venue.  Caitlin & Jordan’s day had so many beautiful locations that I have had to separate their wedding blogs into 4 posts so I could give each spot their own spotlight!  The Sky lobby has stunning views of Dallas and even after the sunset the room was big and spacious and elegant with the glimmer of downtown lights in the distance.  During their ceremony I loved watching their smiles, their parents and of course all the perfect little moments that made everyone laugh.  Such a special time!

Jillian & Brady – Wedding Reception at Mitas Hill VineyardMcKinney, Texas

Mitas Hill Vineyard Wedding Cermony Reception McKinney natural light outdoor winery spring tracy autem photography jill brady-138

Looks at these two!  Last dance for the win again!  Always my favorite part of a day as the couple gets a chance to be alone, reflect upon their day, enjoy each other and have lots of special moments.  Jillian and Brady’s private last dance as full of sweet  moments, embraces, kisses and smiles.  The end of their night was magnificent but their entire night was so much fun!  From the moment they entered to dance as husband and wife until this one everyone celebrated the lives of these two.  It is always so special to see a couple who has stuck through high school, college and into their adult life finally get married.  These two have put in a decade together before ever saying I do and I pray they have many decades ahead of them to celebrate life and to always smile in each others arms.  Thanks so much for letting me be apart of you story!

Thank you to all the vendors who made this day so fun and amazing to photograph:

Mitas Hill Vineyard is so beautiful and I was so excited to steal a few moments away with Jillian & Brady among the vines.  Loved every second of this 15 minutes.  Mitas Hill truly is the most beautiful vineyard wedding location in the Dallas Fort Worth area.  Fields of grapes, a stream, dirt paths and beautiful trees.  A photographer could not ask for more – but I got it!  I had these two love birds in front of the camera too.  I am a lucky girl!  Check back tomorrow for their fun reception!

Jillian & Brady – Wedding Ceremony at Mitas Hill VineyardMcKinney, Texas

Tracy Autem 2015

So excited to start sharing this beautiful vineyard wedding!  Mitas Hill Vineyard is seriously the most perfect place in North Texas to have your wedding if you want it to have that classic winery look.  The property is huge and filled with fields of beautiful grape vines.  From the ceremony you overlook the vineyard and it is pretty spectacular.  It is like a little piece of the California wine country right here!  The location is more than pretty, for this couple it is home.  Jillian’s family owns and operates Mitas Hill and Brady works on property – that connection makes it even more special.

We kicked off the day indoors at the winery for getting ready in the suites and lounge.  Jill and Brady exchanged gifts and dressed in their finest.  I love the illusion plunging neckline of Jillian’s wedding gown from the Bridal boutique of Lewisville.  During the ceremony these two were all smiles (as were their parents!) – they have been together for over 10 years having started dating while Jill was in junior high and Brady was the “older man” in high school.  I think their age difference definitely means less today but I am so glad that they have stuck through it all and by each others side so that now that can call each other husband and wife!  Congrats you two and I can’t wait to share more of this beautiful May wedding!

Every wedding isn’t complete without an amazing team and Jillian and her Mother pulled together an all star cast:
