Lauren & Doug – Wedding Ceremony & First Look at Arlington HallDallas, TX

Photo by Tracy Autem

Lauren & Doug had a pretty fantastic day – it rained – oh how it rained.  But through it all these two said I do and they are married.   It was a day I will never forget and I am truly happy with the images we created.

The entire day our fingers were crossed and prayers were being said about the chance of rain that had spiked suddenly that morning.  As we prepared at The Warwick Melrose for the wedding we were all watching the storm clouds.  Upon arrival at Arlington Hall the sun came out and we had some glorious light as we quickly got Lauren & Doug ready for the big reveal.  I loved Doug’s face when he turned to see his bride – so beautiful and lit by the mid day sun.  God gave us a beautiful hour of light and sun and then the rain came back.  We were not defeated though, we tried to hold the ceremony outdoors but after one failed attempt and allot of wet guests we moved on to an early cocktail hour.  While the bride & groom visited with guests the all star vendor team moved a beautiful flower draped huppa to the portico of Arlington Hall.  It was perfectly imperfect in every way and the ceremony that followed was full of laughter and love like I have never seen.  The unexpected reveals, and for Lauren & Doug it revealed the deepness of their love, family & friends and that no matter the circumstances we were all there to celebrate them!  The interfaith rabi did a great job lightning the mood and marrying these two.

Congrats Lauren & Doug!

This rainy day wedding would not have been pulled off without the AMAZING team of rockstar wedding vendors.  I was so truly blessed to have these amazing people by my side to make sure Lauren’s day was perfect!

Tiffany & Chip – Wedding Ceremony & Portraits 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-40

Grab your tissues!  More beautiful emotion filled images today!  Tiffany and Chip were married a few weeks ago at White Oaks Ranch in Pilot Point, Texas and it was a perfect day!  Today I am excited to share their ceremony and portraits.  These two carefully chose every detail of their day to reflect their faith, style, personality’s and the things that are near to their hearts.  Tiff’s grandpa officiated their ceremony and it was such a special touch.  Also joining the ceremony was one of their puppy dogs – he stood in as a great ring bearer!

 

Before Tiffany walked the aisle, Chip gave their little doggie a pat on the head and then looked out to greet his bride.  Tiffany was escorted down the aisle by her Mom and brother and it was so sweet watching everyone embrace and hold hands to pray before giving the bride away.  During the ceremony there were lots of smiles and a few happy tears and some perfectly funny and sincere vows.  Sealed with a kiss and a ketubah signing these two were married and then it was time for portraits!

 

We had such a fabulous time sharing in this day with them and want to thank the other friendors who helped make their vision come to life.

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!

Rachael & Colin – Wedding Reception at Marie Gabrielle

Wedding Marie Gabriel Dallas Gro Designs Tracy Autem Photography-0047

After these two said I do it was time for some romantic portraits!  Marie Gabrielle Restaurant in downtown Dallas really is a stunning place to get married and I was so thankful the rain stayed away so we had time to capture these two love birds in the gardens.  Rachael’s lace gown and all white bouquet were simply elegant next to Colin’s traditional tuxedo.  We used up every last little bit of light before heading on inside to the party!

Gro Designs knocked it out of the park with the fabulous floral chandelier hanging above the dance floor.  It made the space feel extra special for Rachael & Colin.  Their reception was full of good food, laughter and fun as these two celebrated with their closest friends and family.  From getting down and dancing to the sparkler send off everyone had a fantastic time.
Congrats to the newlyweds and I can’t wait to hear about your Greece honeymoon!

Mr & Mrs Matt Hensley – A Dallas Wedding at Maple Manor

Dallas Wedding Photographer Tracy Autem Maple Manor Hotel Ceremony Bride Groom Recessional

Married!

This day was all about the moments.  I love documenting what happens at weddings and for Ashley and Matt that is what I did.  The day started off at the Warwick Hotel in Dallas where we photographed Ashley and her girls getting ready.  Ashley is absolutely stunning but when I met her Mom and Grandma I could see not only where she got her looks but her amazingly sweet personality.  Her Grandma had me just grinning ear to ear because she was so full of joy!  Ashley had a drop dead gown by Pronovias, one of my favorite designers.  Sarah Rizy headed off to Maple Manor where the ceremony was held to catch some getting ready photos of the guys before we sequestered Matt away as Ashley arrived leading up to the ceremony.  It may have been hot last weekend but everyone braved it and it was well worth it as we had a pretty blue sky and a touching ceremony.  Matt is all about dipping Ashley so I was ready for it and captured it right after their first kiss as man and wife and before Ashley threw up her arms in victory at becoming Mrs. Hensley!  Here are some photos of their Dallas Wedding with part 2 coming soon highlighting their non-stop dance party reception and highlights slide show.

They agreed not to get each other wedding gifts but wrote love notes to one another. Ashley broke the rule a bit and included a crochet hook so he could help her out of her dress later that night. Those buttons can be a nightmare with out one!

What an amazing day at Amy’s Father’s house just a few weeks ago! Their day was right after the week of non stop rain and with the entire event planned for outside we were all keeping our fingers crossed and saying multiple prayers daily. It all paid off because no tent was necessary and we got warm but perfect weather and a killer sunset right during romantics.

The couple said their vows underneath a tree on a peninsula of land surrounded by water and then the reception followed on her Father’s lawn. The details made the day and Amy is a very artistic girl, almost all of them were hand made by her and the love and care she put into them showed. Chelsea at Evenements made sure everything flowed smoothly. Video was done by my favorite team, turquoise productions.

Cutest Favors with some Hawaii feel

Cutest Favors with some Hawaii feel

On July 10th this couple were married at the fabulous Outrigger Canoe Club in Waikiki in Hawaii.  It was a beautiful day and sharing it with them makes me feel truly blessed.  Doing a destination wedding I become even closer with my couples and spend allot of time through out the wedding process preparing for their day.  These two had perfect weather, looked amazing and I loved the details and intricate touches.  Here is their day and I can’t wait to see the memories they make in the future.

I love love love this.

I love love love this.

I always love when the groom sees her for the first time.

Siging the marriage license, this appears to be a big deal in Hawaii unlike here in Texas where we rarely see it.RinnWeddingBlog_0013
Proof that my amazing husband didn't just come to Hawaii to sit on the beach, he was a big help as you can see here with everything from gear to flowers.

After an amazing night of fun and dancing it came to an end but their local reception is coming up next weekend so I know they will have a blast then as well.


Mr. & Mrs. Kyle Bennett





Bennett6.27.09Blog_0014Michelle & Kyle were married at one of my favorite garden locations in the area, Garden Manor in Grapevine.  Judy and her staff are just fabulous and they went above and beyond for this one.  Judy had to come to the rescue with a locksmith when one of the friends of the wedding party was accidentally locked into the bathroom in one of the guest rooms.  The knob fell off and the door was not budging!  Thankfully it wasn’t one of our key players or we would have had even better stories to tell!

The real story of course is this hot couple and I mean hot!  It was 103 on their day and they along with all their guests were troopers.  Despite the heat Michelle looked amazing and we were able to capture some amazing moments from their getting ready, to the ceremony and the romantics.  Congratulations you two!

It is a rare treat to get to photograph an intimate garden wedding and Jennifer & Greg had just that earlier this month.  Surrounded by their kids, family and friends these two tied the knot at their friends home in Arlington on June 9th.  We ran off and explored some local parks for their romantics before the ceremony.  My favorite part of the day was their words to the children, their promises and tears on Jennifer’s part before inviting the kids up to join hands and pray.  Then these two shared their first kiss.  It was fun to be a part of their laid back day, here are few favorites.  Their cake cutting was a family affair and all the kids had a bite!
