Taylor & Tyler – Wedding Reception at City Club Fort WorthTexas

Taylor & Tyler’s wedding reception was beautiful in pinks and naturals at The City Club of Fort Worth!  The ballroom there always sparkles and there is something else I love about this venue – it is always a GREAT PARTY!  The atmosphere is just perfect for dancing all night, an amazing band and lots of fun!  Before we got to into the evening we snuck away for some night time photos not he balcony overlooking downtown Fort Worth.  I loved the TCU Purple lights on the buildings.  As the night went on these two danced, found themselves on the stage a few times and had a great time celebrating with their friends.  We had so much fun celebrating with you two – I can’t wait to see all the future holds!

 

Thank you to the wedding vendors who executed Taylor’s vision and made her day so fun!

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!

Krista & Aaron – Wedding at First Christian Church with Reception at T&P Station

Photo by Tracy Autem of Lightly Photography 2013 http://lightlyphoto.com  Krista and Aaron were married right before the Thanksgiving holiday.  I’m excited to finally share these as the ice storm over the weekend got in my way of doing so earlier.  These two prepared at The Omni before heading to First Christian Church in downtown Fort Worth for their wedding ceremony.  It is a really pretty church that I haven’t been too for years so it was great to be back.  The front is my favorite part and served as a beautiful backdrop for some bridal party photos and romantic images at night!  After the I do’s and some very cold outside photos we were on to the reception at T&P Station.  The T&P building is an amazing art deco style building and the most beautiful part is UP, if you ever visit look up because the ceiling is fabulous.  To warm up from the cold we filled up on Blue Mesa morsels and danced to some killer country music by the Jeremy Powers Band.  They were great, Jeremy sang all night, hardly ever took a break and the guests loved him!  I loved watching Aaron spin Krista around the dance floor as his face lit up when he had her in his arms.

Krista & Aaron’s wedding day was made perfect by the following vendor team:

Summer & Paul {Married} University Christian & The Modern Art Museum

 

LOVE does not begin to describe how I feel abut the photo – Andy Warhol, Marilyn Monroe, available gallery light and one very in love couple is my idea of perfect.

This wedding was SO amazing.  It had everything a wedding needs to make me a very happy photographer.  The best couple that is head over heels in love with each other.  My favorite team of vendors, coolest venues in Fort Worth and the undeniable prescience of God.  Through out their day I had goose bumps, teary eyes and a smile plastered to my face.  I could not be happier for Summer and Paul and I hope to be a part of their journey together in the years to come as they are extraordinary people.  I think if you take a moment to look at their images you will see why.

Thanks to the team who made it so perfect!

Summer cried as she read Paul’s note to her before the ceremony and she gasped when she opened the pearl necklace he gave her.  So sweet.

Pure excitement as Summer’s Sister-in-law helped with the veil

I am a sucker for emotion and my favorite is when it comes from the groom, he teared up as he read her note as well.  So in love.

Ready to walk down the aisle, look at her smile…glowing.

So happy to see his beautiful bride.

Mazel tov!

This amazing floral art work by Tami Winn was the coolest thing I have ever seen at a reception.

First Dance

The above shot is the one thing that this couple KNEW they wanted before ever even looking for a photographer.  I think we nailed it and I can’t wait to see it hanging in their home!

As an artist I just adore being able to photograph people in front of Iconic work by Rothco or Warhol….It is just beyond special.

One of my favorites!  love all the neutral tones.

This photo takes on a special meaning.  Not knowing about her Dad’s speech to come I took this image.  Later on as her Dad spoke he remembered a photo he has of a young Summer, hands on her face, posing in front of this very artwork.  Some things change but some things never do.

Neck nuzzling is the best.

Her Grandpa moved me to tears when he spoke.  What a God filled man with words of wisdom and Love for his little girl and her cowboy.
