Bree & Craig – Private Dallas Ranch Wedding Reception

Private Ranch Residence Wedding ceremony outside flowers stylish soiree Tracy Autem photography Dallas Fort Worth Tent fireworks limelight band-120

Can’t think of a better end to a day then this.  A final goodbye amidst sparklers and fireworks!

 

The reception space at Bree’s family ranch was housed in a tent filled with rustic meets chic decor.  The beautiful barn tables were dressed up in whites, silver and touches of gray, greens and lavenders.  The family style atmosphere set the tone for a fun filled night.  As limelight took the stage and Bree & Craig were announced the party was on!  This couple never strayed far from the dance floor or each other.  After dinner it was time for cake and there was a little special detail on the back of the cake just for Craig – his Jersey number on a tiny little football!  Super cute and very thoughtful of Bree.  As the night progressed it was time for wedding dress #2!  I am not always a fan of second dresses but this one – let me say was pretty awesome.  The slinky beaded gown was easy to dance in and had perfect little princess cap sleeves.  As the night came to close the couple took the stage for their last dance along side the band before being led off to their honeymoon by the horn section.

 

It was a fabulous night and we had the best time celebrating with them.  Bree made us feel like family and I am just thrilled for these two and the life they have ahead of them.  Congratulations you two!

Allison & Michael – Wedding Reception at The Orchard, Azle

Tracy Autem & Lightly Photography 2014

After a laugh filled ceremony this couple was blessed with what I would define as perfect light.  It was the right time of day with a beautiful natural landscape behind them at The Orchard in Azle.  I’m so happy we had time to walk around the property for these images, they are some of my favorites of late!  Allison and Michael are just sweet as pie together, so loving, so tender and full of great smiles and laughter – their joy is contagious as I was just as happy behind the camera as they were in front of it!  After using up all our light it was time to party!  Their friends and family dined on some yummy mexican food then danced the night away!  Sealing the evening with a sparkler exit was the perfect ending, congrats to a pretty fabulous couple, I know you have a life time of happiness ahead!

Kayla & Neal – Wedding Reception at The Orchard

Tracy Autem & Lightly Photography 2014

After these two tied the knot in their outdoor wedding at The Orchard it was time to party.  This couple was quoted many times as saying it was ALL about the party.  It most definitely was as we quickly shifted gears to celebrating.  Todd Events brought the outdoors in for their reception with trees sprouting up from the tables, large statement candelabra’s and made it feel like home with comfort food and pies from G Texas Catering.  Kayla’s own mother, Gina, created and provided her elegant brides cake.  THEN the dance party started, it was kicked off with a unique bridal party intro as the bridesmaids and groomsmen competed in a dance off for some prized liquor bottles.  So fun and the best into I have ever seen!  Then we hit the floor with DJ Glenn Roush, all night!  The small dance floor was packed all night, everyone had to have gone home with happy hearts and achy feet!  I am so glad I got to party with these two, it will not be one I forget.

Holly & Jason – A Private Residence Black and White Wedding in Kennedale

As Fall begins and the weather cools we also get unexpected rain.  For Holly & Jason’s wedding lots of prayers went up to God asking for the rain to cease and move out.  It may have rained all morning, not the nice misty rain but full out pouring, but in the afternoon the sun came out, the sky was filled with puffy stormy clouds but not a drop of rain fell on their celebration.  It was really a perfect day and I pray the luck and blessings that found them that day follow them every day of their lives as husband and wife.  Everyone got muddy and Holly and her bridesmaids even wore rain boots after the ceremony to keep dry but I believe everyone had an amazing time celebrating with them.  I know we did.  Congratulations you two and thank you for allowing me and Sarah Rizy to be there for your day.

Holly has a great sense of style and that was evident in all the do it yourself details with a classic black and white theme.

What girl doesn’t love shoes?
