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!

Rachael & Colin – Wedding Ceremony at Marie Gabrielle

Wedding Marie Gabriel Dallas Gro Designs Tracy Autem Photography-0039

 

Rachael & Colin’s day was completely blessed.  I think every person involved was getting on their knees leading up to this wedding asking God to hold off the rains so that this couple could share their vows in the outdoor garden at Marie Gabrielle in downtown Dallas.  The Lord heard those prayers and not only held off the rain for their ceremony but a drop didn’t hit the ground until after their entire celebration came to an end.  On top of the praise worthy weather their day was just full of sweet moments and we so enjoyed sharing in it with them.

 

Meeting up with the ladies for getting ready I kind of fell in love with the thoughtful gift the bridesmaids bestowed upon their friend.  Each girl purchased a cookbook for her new home and wrote a note to Rachael in it. I love that for years to come she can pull out those cook books, fill her home with delicious food and remember her wedding day.  Way to go ladies!

 

At the gardens before the ceremony Rachael & Colin shared a moment together with out breaking tradition of seeing one another.  Around a pillar they shared wedding gifts and some words to ease their nerves and share their excitement. During the ceremony we laughed that Colin married 2 women as her uncle and minister tripped over his words and called her by her first name once and middle name another time.  Every day needs something to tell stories about!

 

Check back tomorrow for their wedding reception blog and slide show.  In the meant time thanks to a stellar vendor team that pulled all the details together and made sure this day was smooth.

Bailey & Brandon – Wedding Reception at Ashton Gardens

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

After Bailey & Brandon’s Wedding Ceremony it was time to celebrate!  After some romantic imagery in the chapel and outside in the chill of the evening we headed in to party it up.  After some fun introductions these two hit the dance floor and invited all their guests to take part in their first dance as husband and wife.  They spent the evening mingling with friends and family and cutting up on the dance floor.  Don’t let Brandon’s laid back demeanor fool you, he knows how to bring it on the dance floor.  He is Sexy and he knows it (And Bailey knows it too!)  His shenanigans were quite entertaining and I think he may have even danced a bit with me.  After lots of fun it was time to depart, we stole them away for one last parting portrait beneath the sweet marquis LOVE letters provided by Leforce Entertainment.  Then they were off to their honeymoon to celebrate their marriage and the new year!  Thanks guys for letting us take part, we so enjoyed ending our 2013 with you.

Their wedding was truly beautiful thanks to the following team:

Monica & Steven {Married} A bright summer wedding at The Colonial

Monica & Steven were married on June 18th at 1st Presbyterian in Fort Worth with their reception to follow at The Colonial Country Club.  Monica and her Mom are two of the sweetest people I have ever met and I just adored hanging out with them during the preparations.  Her Mom makes me giggle and she is just gorgeous (Definitely where Monica got her lean tall beauty)  I completely fell in love with Monica’s sparkly Louis Vuitton’s, which were a fabulous early wedding present from Steven.  You can see how amazing Monica and Steven are through the types of relationships this couple has formed with their friends and family.  All day their bridal party was helpful, happy and excited for their friends.  I think I’ll just let the photos do the talking because nothing says it better.   Here is a list of all the vendors we collaborated with on this wedding:

Audra & Matt {Married Part 2 – Romantic Portraits & Reception} Christ Chapel Church & Ashton Depot

Audra & Matt’s reception was smashing and so fun.  Randy Ro Entertainment provided great tunes to dance to and mood lighting as well as a photo booth that the guest had way to good of time in.  The food by Ashton Depot was amazing as always, one of my favorite places for food and the vintage ambiance.   The Cake Guys made a show stopping cake and Audra’s Dad surprised the couple with a vintage car from Romantic Remembrances.  The white elegant decor by Tami Winn Events made the room perfection.  It was a spectacular night and Sarah Halferty and I had a great time celebrating with them.  I wish you both all the best!

Audra & Matt {Married Part 1 – Preperation, Ceremony & Details} Christ Chapel Bible Church & Ashton Depot

Audra and Matt were married a few weeks ago at Christ Chapel Church in Fort Worth with a reception to follow at Ashton Depot.  I loved the classic white details with sparkling crystals that her florist and coordinator, Tami Winn Events, created.  It was an ultra chic event.  We joined Audra and her bridesmaids as she prepared for the ceremony at the church.  One of my favorite moments of the day was her Grandfather coming in to see her as a bride and the big smile he had as he hugged her.  During the ceremony Audra and Matt made the sweetest faces at one another and as the exited I love that Audra looked at Matt as he escorted her out of the church.  Check back tomorrow for their highlight slide show as well as romantic portraits and reception!
