Meredith & Michael – Wedding Reception at The Room on Main, Dallas

Tracy Autem 2015

Meredith & Michael were so much fun to party with!  After a touching ceremony and a few portraits at Preston Hollow Church we headed downtown to the Room on Main!  It is a gorgeous venue with an amazing view of downtown Dallas.  The room decor was glamorous and classic with winter whites and touches of black and white and some little nods to the season with pine cones and greenery.

 

During the first dance Meredith smiled so much – I don’t think there was a second where she wasn’t smiling!  I just loved watching how much joy these two had in each others arms.  As the night went on so many sweet words were said during toasts – lots of laughter and silliness of course!  When it was time to party the band brought it!  They love to dance to Uptown Funk together – it is kind of their song.  Michael was out of the room when it played and when a girl in a white dress wants a song again – you do it!  So, the band cued it back up and played it for the happy couple and it was so awesome.  They were so fun together and it was my favorite moment from the reception.

 

Thanks Meredith and Michael for having us at your wedding – I love you guys and can’t wait to see what your future brings!

 

Huge thank you to Chloe with Stylish Soiree who made this wedding SO fun to work and made sure every detail came together.  All the vendors made it peferct!

Clare & Blaine – Wedding Reception at The Four Seasons Resort Ballroom

Four Seasons Dallas Wedding reception ballroom tami winn events tracy autem photography clare blaine-78

One of my favorite moments from this wedding was watching as Clare’s two sisters gave their toast.  I remember well as Clare was toasting her sister at her wedding a few years ago so it was beautiful to see her on the receiving end.  Tears were shed but at the end everyone laughed and they moved this wedding reception into party mode!

 

The ballroom looked stunning in coral peach tones with gold accents.  The tables were arranged in a family style atmosphere with long rectangular tables.  Everything sparkled!  As the night went on the dance floor stayed packed, everyone had fun and it was over all too soon!  As the evening wound down Clare & Blaine shared a private last dance before exiting to a confetti explosion!  Congrats you two!

Jamie & Oscar – Wedding at Robert Carr Chapel & The Modern Art Museum

Jamie and Oscar and the most sincere people and it was amazing to be with them on their wedding day at Robert Carr Chapel and The Modern Art Museum in Fort Worth.  Their families are lovely in every way and I spent allot of time behind my camera smiling  and with moist eyes for these guys.  From getting ready and Jamie’s reaction to her veil and Oscar’s face as she walked down the aisle to him it was just perfection.  Their ceremony was officiated by Love Notes my favorite minister team.  The Modern was the perfect backdrop for their reception as Oscar is an art history buff and it is simply one of the most beautiful places in the world to have your wedding.  The reception was perfected with William Ryan of It’s Your Night Entertainment lighting and music and of course scrumptious cakes from The Cake Guys.  Read on for more of their day, their moments and of course the FUN they had!  Here is a glimpse further into their day with their highlight reel:

 

LOVED Jamie’s reaction to her veil, so sweet!  I think the veil makes every girl feel like it is REAL!

A few day of bridal portraits for this stunning girl.

Love this one, so serene and pretty!

Oscar getting a little tie adjustment from Dad.

Best Man and Brother ready with the rings!

 Pre – Ceremony Prayer time. 

This adorable ring bearer out ran the bridesmaids he was so eager to get his job over with.

Now that is the face of one happy guy looking at his beautiful wife to be.

Married!

This gang was silly and FUN! (see below)

And NOW…..photos in the galleries at The Modern – the very coolest backdrop you can ever have for your wedding portraits.

This new installation is super cool and it has a very BLUE effect making this image look allot like a cyanotype (for the photo nerds out there.)

Cafe Modern lit up by William Ryan and cake by The Cake Guys.

A sweet welcome to his guests and his bride.

Toasts on the patio outside the Cafe Modern.

A dance with Dad for Jamie, And Mom for Oscar (below)

Did I mention fun?  Yeah, Jamie’s Dad and Brother knew how to cut a rug and get us all laughing.

Private last dance before their getaway.

Congrats you two!  I wish you a lifetime of happiness!

Kerri & Jase – Wedding at Marty Leonard Chapel with Reception at Stockyards Station

Kerri and Jase were married on a wintery day in the evening at Marty Leonard Chapel with their reception to follow at Stockyards Station.  It may have been cold outside but Jase kept his girl warm and we had a great time photographing them.  Their day was filled with intricate details that Kerri and a team of friends and family spent months pulling together.  There were so many sweet things I can’t begin to talk about them all but I must mention her DIY mason jar glasses.  They were adorable and a beautiful parting gift for all her guests.  On top of Kerri’s hard work the following vendors made their day possible:

Tami Winn – Floral

Katie & Nicholas – Wedding Reception at the Fort Worth Omni Hotel Ballrooms

The ballroom at The Omni Hotel in Fort Worth was breathtaking and this photo above from the couples private last dance at the end of their evening shows off SO much of the beauty of their day.  It highlights the amazing lighting and decor as well as their closeness, pretty darn cool!  Once we arrived at the Omni the celebration was in full effect and Tami Winn and her team had set a backdrop that was flawless and elegant with winter whites and vibrant reds for this December wedding.  Once the couple hit the room it was full of laughter and chatter and the dance floor stayed packed as everyone hit the floor to party!  It was so sweet to see everyone, young and old, enjoying the festivities.  Read on for more about their night and of course their wedding day highlights slide show:

Lauren & Eric Married at Piazza in the Village

Lauren and Eric were married on August 4th at The Piazza in the Village.  I love this sweet couple who just light up when they around each other.  Their wedding was fun filled and it was a pleasure to be a part of their wedding day.  Their wedding day was made perfect by the following team of vendors:

Piazza in the Village

Halo Brides – Hair and Make Up

Laurens hair and make up was stunning by Halo Salon of Fort Worth.

Lauren and her bridesmaids peeking outside to see those arriving to the church.

The girls laughing as they attempt to steam Lauren’s veil.  These machine can be tricky.

Lauren wanted to keep with tradition and not see Eric before hand but they snuck around a wall just to say hi and hold hands for a moment before the ceremony.

Lauren’s Mom was just beaming at her after helping her with the veil.

I loved that I was able to be present when Lauren’s Dad came in to see her for the first time, his expression and the hug that followed was perfect.

Flower girls make for great entertainment during ceremonies.

Married!

A stolen first dance kiss.

Private last dances are always my favorite for genuine moments.  Absolute sweetness occurred during theirs from beautiful laughs to a few spins.

Lauren and Eric had a super unique get away, light up balloons.  They looked great and were something fun to bring home at the end of a night of dancing.

Courtney & Jake {Married at Broadway Baptist & City Club} Fort Worth Wedding

Courtney and Jake were married a few weeks ago at Broadway Baptist with a reception to follow at City Club of Fort Worth.  Their bridal party was made up of their closest friends and some of the most adorable kids I have ever had at a wedding.  Their ceremony was truly touching and I adored that as he gave her away Cortney’s Dad was wiping tears from his eyes.  During the ceremony I had the best view in the balcony to see Jake’s face as he vowed to his bride and the stolen glances at each other during the lighting of the unity candle.  When couples are recessing out of the church so often they are overwhelmed and looking out, seeing all the guests BUT Courtney and Jake kept looking at each other as they left the altar behind them.  I LOVE THAT!  It speaks so much to their love for one another.  Fireworks have a special meaning to them so we did a getaway with sparklers at the church before heading over to the reception.  The reception was filled with heart felt toasts, good company, delicious treats and good tunes from DJ William Ryan.  It was such a special night and we SO enjoyed being there to photograph it!

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!

Dr. & Mrs. Max Hendrix

HendrixWeddingBlog_0011

On February 13th I had the privilege of spending the day with Jennifer and Max as they said their vows and had a stunning wedding and reception.  The moment I met Jennifer at our studio I knew I wanted to be a part of this special day.  Jennifer’s sweetness and kindness just won me over completely so I can see how Max fell so hard for her.  We have been lucky to be a part of this journey with them from their engagement session, engagement party through the rehearsal dinner and on into their married life.

To describe their wedding in a few words:  Timeless, Elegant, Loving & Sweet.  The best part of those words is Loving and although these two are over the moon for each other the love that I saw from all of their family members was what stuck me.  They were so welcoming to all their guests as well as us.  These families are so amazing that by the end of the weekend I even felt like I was one of them!  Their relatives toasts made me laugh, cry and most of all know both families were excited to be gaining a new relative.  Jennifer and Max are definitely loved.

From decor to attire every aspect of this day had a timeless feel.  I love shooting a wedding and knowing in 5 years or 20 it will look current because Jennifer and her family took such care in planning  along with Tami Winn Events.  Jennifer reminded me of a starlet like Grace Kelly in her amazing gown and veil and her bridesmaids wore classic floor length black dresses.  This wedding was a studio event as we photographed them all day and both of my associates joined me to make sure nothing was missed.  They were married at TCU’s Robert Carr Chapel followed by a reception at The Colonial Country Club.  Floral by Tami Winn’s Le Fleur Couture and scrumptious cake by The Cake Guys.

Here is their slide show and some of my favorite moments from their day.  Tons of them are in Black and White because as I said timeless was definitely a word for this wedding and when editing my favorites I just kept seeing them that way.  Enjoy!
