Mallory & Ryan {Married} Part 1 Preperations, Bridal Portraits & Ceremony

This wedding was near and dear to my heart as it was my second wedding with the Bride’s family. A little over a year ago I photographed Mallory’s sisters wedding so I felt right at home with her parents, brother and grandma.  Although I may have been meeting Ryan’s family for the first time they were SO sweet and made me feel like I’ve known them for ever.  My strong attachment to them meant narrowing down photos for them has been HARD!!!  So in conclusion I will be sharing 2 blogs of this awesome Robert Carr wedding and Stonegate Mansion Reception.

I met up with Mallory and her gang of girls for preparations at Stonegate Mansion where we were joined by the hair and make up team of Halo Salon.  After Mallory slipped into her gown we headed to the chapel for her wedding.  After the Mom’s were seated they joined hands and walked to the altar to light the unity candles.  I knew it would be emotional and from the first moment those doors opened to reveal Mallory and her Dad, Ken, my heart beat faster.  Behind me I know Ryan’s must have been booming in his chest too as he grinned as she walked down the aisle towards him.  I loved that through out the day Mallory was always hugging on her Dad, from giving her away to right after the ceremony as she cried as he held her.

Today I also wanted to share a few of Mallory’s bridal portraits that we took a few months ago at the Gaylord and Lake Grapevine.  Bridals are one of my favorite things and it was so great to spend the afternoon with her and her Mom, Stacey.  Keep a look out for Part 2 with their romantic portraits, more details and a reception that rocked thanks to Randall Stout Entertainment!


Lauren & Randy {Married} Fort Worth Club Wedding

Fort Worth Club Details Pink Purple flowers uplighting

Lauren & Randy were married recently at The Fort Worth Club.  It was a beautiful day and I was so happy to be able to capture it for them.  Some of my favorite moments were between the parents and my couples as Randy squeezed his Moma on the dance floor or the joy on Lauren’s Mom face as she slipped into her gown or her Daddy seeing her for the first time.  Favorite hands down though would have to be the tears Randy cried as his bride walked down the aisle, the ones I never expect are the ones that cry.  So loved their day and the fabulous team of vendors the pulled together including:

Lauren had a special dance with both her Dad and her Grandfather.

I just love these two photos, makes me think of how I’ll be hugging on my son’s one distant day when they get married.  Randy’s Mom loves him.

Our friends always know how to make us laugh and be tender, Lauren’s friend made them do both moments apart.

There was definitely a party going on thanks to DJ, Randall Stout!

Randy had some brotherly love with this groomsmen from dancing to some serious singing all night long together.

Watch out!  Dad is a dancing fool!

Congratulations you two!  I hope your marriage is full of joy and happiness!

Kendall & Jason {Married!} Robert Carr Chapel & City Club Fort Worth – Part 1 Romantics & Details

Kendall & Jason are one of the MANY reasons I love my job.  These two totally won me over at their engagement session and I have been looking forward to their wedding ever since.  They were married earlier this month on December 4th with an all star cast of vendors at the most perfect balance of decor and entertainment.  I love Christmas (my birthday is actually on Christmas Day) and I was so excited and totally floored when I walked into their reception only to see the most delicate floral designs perfectly balanced with elegant ornaments in purples, reds and metallic s.  Tami Winn and her floral staff did an amazing job of making a winter wonderland look elegant and so subtle.  To add to the holiday magic TCU Santa & Mrs. Claus were in attendance to greet the guests to cocktail hour.  The food and service of Amy Shackleford at City Club was as always amazing and then to top it off Randal Stout Entertainment kept the dance floor packed all night long.  Adrienne & Aytek of Turquoise Productions were on hand filming the wedding.  Yummy cake by Creme de la Creme (Love Jaimie and her cakes!)  Today I am SO excited to share these awesome details and some super sweet photos of the bride and groom.  Stay tuned tomorrow for their slide show and all of the fabulous moments.

You all know I love shoes and Kendall wore these rocking pink shoes.

Kendall’s parents were married at Robert Carr chapel and on the wedding day they had their wedding album on hand.  I was sneaking a peek at it and saw a really precious series of images with Ken & Stacey and decided to recreate it with Kendall & Jason. Below is what we came up with.

Stacy & Brent Married! {Part 2 Moments} Ashton Depot & Marty Leonard Chapel in Fort Worth

Marty Leonard Chapel Fort Worth Texas Bride Groom Tracy Autem Photography

The above photo defines this couple for me.  Stacy and Brent are so loving and sweet and in this moment I saw.  After their first look in which Stacy cried and they were both so happy to finally see each other this happened.  Sarah Rizy had gone out into the chapel entry to invite the family inside so we could begin formal photos.  Concerned her make up was smeared, Brent took it upon himself to oh so carefully blot her eyes.  I just love the calmness and confidence Stacy had that he would not further smear it and the complete concentration Brent took to ensure his bride looked perfect.  That is love and why I do what I do.  Every day I shoot people I get to see, really see, who people are.  Here is Stacy & Brent’s wedding day, the moments that mattered and their highlights slide show.  Congratulations guys!  You know I love you  and am so glad I was there to share in your day.

Stacy broke out in tears the moment she passed the threshold of the chapel.

Together at last. This moment is why first look's bring me joy. This is what I believe all couples want to do when they finally see each other on the wedding day but most don't because they are in front of a crowd. Alone there is honesty in every action and I love it.

Mr & Mrs!

Moments after the ceremony are awesome and often I am the only one around to see. Here Brent sweetly kissed Stacy on the forehead and seconds later they were yelling and celebrating. All the emotions a wedding brings in just seconds.
In a loud parting limo I love this stollen quiet glance.

First dance as husband and wife at the beautiful historic Ashton Depot.

These two photos I love. Brent watching his bride with her father and then Stacy watching her groom with his Mom. Sometimes the best moment isn’t what every one is watching, it is what no one is.

Stacy's two best girls, twin sisters, giving a toast.

Love this sad face while her step Father said a few words.

Dancing the night away!

Have some cake!
