Shelby & Whilden – First United Methodist ChurchCeremony and First Look

Shelby and Whilden are the cutest!  These two were so excited to get married and they could not wait to see each other.  Whilden was anxious but when he walked out of the door of the First United Methodist Church you could see it all melt away.  Shelby was all smiles to finally be beside her groom!  After some beautiful photos outside of the church with family and friends these two said I do in the main sanctuary.

Thank you to the vendor team who made this day so beautiful and flawless:

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!

Bailey & Brandon – Wedding Ceremony at Ashton Gardens

Photo by Tracy Autem of Lightly Photography 2013 http://lightlyphoto.com

Bailey & Brandon’s wedding was the perfect way to seal the end of my 2013 Weddings.  They had a fabulous winter wedding with bright reds and purples at Ashton Gardens in Corinth.  These two aren’t Dallas Fort Worth local though as they traveled with all of their guests from Midland Odessa for their destination style wedding.  We met up with the lovely Bailey and her maids at a nearby hotel for some beautification by Something You Makeup Artistry.  I loved their fun denim shirts with custom monograms, made me want to kind of run out and get one!  Once we arrived at the chapel at the gardens we slid her into her gorgeous gown with lace detailing and a super sweet belt.  I love dresses with unique detailing and hers had it in spades.  Brandon and his gentlemen hung around and were laid back looking toward the ceremony.  He was super excited to open his gift from his bride to be and find some styling Justin Boots.  Practical and oh so suave.

The sun set and ceremony time approached, Bailey share a special reveal of her gown before her Daddy walked her down the aisle.  Brandon’s smile could not be bigger as his bride approached and he pretty  much stayed that way from that moment on as you can see above.  This is one guy who knows what he has and I am sure he will hold on tight to the beautiful girl he gets to call wife.  Stay tuned tomorrow for their killer reception led by Ed Petty of Leforce Entertainment, one of my favorite DJ’s!

All the pretty and planning were made possible to the always Extraordinary, Julie Eastman.  She knows how to pull together a stellar team!
