Katie & Charlie – Winter Night Wedding Ceremony at Marty Leonard Chapel

Fort Worth Club New Years Eve Wedding Marty Leonard chapel tami winn events tracy autem photography katie charlie-48

 We ended 2015 with one fun blowout of a party as we celebrated alongside Katie & Charlie at Marty Leonard Chapel and The Fort Worth Club.  Before we could ring in the new year first we had to countdown to Conway and get these two married!

We kicked off the day at The Fort Worth club for preparations and some relaxing with the bridesmaids and groomsmen.  The ladies were ready to party and sparkling from head to toe in their gold drape backed sequin gowns.  Charlie, the sweetheart that he is, gave each of the bridesmaids a bottle of Creed Perfume, Love in White, with a hand written note on the back thanking them for being a part of their day.  Every detail was perfect and thought out from the fabulous blue shoes Katie wore to the bejeweled clutch and the amazing sapphire ring borrowed from he groom’s Mother.  When it was time to get dressed Katie just glowed.  I love her classic and clean lined gown with a fun and textured flared skirt.

At the church we snuck in a few photos as the sun was setting outside.  The ladies were so sophisticated in their fur stoles.  Charlie and his guys were thankful for the cold though – it is so funny to me how guys are always hot!  Whenever it is cold outside it seems like a blessing to the groom.  Katie’s family had their childhood minister who baptized her fly in to perform the ceremony.  By candlelight and romantic moody lighting the couple said their vows.  Charlie cried a few tears and Katie was so radiant.  It was such a pleasure to share this day with them.

Without this amazing team this wedding would not have been possible, thanks friendors!

Katie – Bridal Portraits at The Milestone in Denton

Milestone Bridal Portrait clean white bright classic bride portrait photo dog puppy tami winn tracy autem katie-8

Katie was a gorgeous bride and I just loved every moment I spent with her.  Genuine, sweet and kind with a happy heart describes this lovely lady so well.  Let me add, gorgeous!  She is radiant on the inside and out.  Her wedding day was super special but first a few weeks prior we headed up to Denton to the Milestone for her bridal portraits.  The simple and classic clean lines of the venue were the perfect backdrop for her session.  I loved her vera wang gown with delicate jeweled belt.  Katie carried an all white bouquet by Tami Winn – it is just winter white perfection!  Her little pup, Winston, joined in for pictures and he was a perfect gentleman.  He wore a rocking little gold bow tie so that he was properly dressed for the occasion.

 

I wish I could rewind so I could spend more time with you Katie!  Congrats and check back to see more of this fabulous bride and her groom, Charlie, later this week.

On the Cover of 360 West Weddings Magazine! {Published}

Every bride wants to be published and we are always over the moon when our photos are selected for magazines and blogs.  Submitting images and being in tune with what local publications are looking for is fun for me and I was SO excited to supply this photo for the inaugural issue of 360 West Weddings.  The team at 360 West had a specific vision for this first cover and when I heard what they were looking for I sent over several selections that I though would hit the nail on the head.  I knew in the back of my mind that this image might be the one and it was!  The bride is Natalie who was married last summer and wore a super fluffy and pretty Vera Wang gown.  She is holding a pink bouquet by Tami Winn Events with sweet jeweled frogs as a nod to her Alma matter, Texas Christian University.

This new publication by Fort Worth’s luxury Magazine 360 West is an answer to a need in our city.  I know that this will become a go to for the Fort Worth Brides.  If you haven’t seen it look for it on news stands or check out the online issue here.  Inside are many more photos of my fabulous couples, see if you can spot them!

Morgan {Bridal Portraits} Fort Worth Club and First United Methodist Church

Morgan was such a fun bride to work with!  She is one of the sweetest people and every time I talk to her she just makes me happy!  I had a blast photographing  her bridals at Fort Worth Club and First United Methodist Church.  Her asymmetrical Vera Wang gown was super cool, its flouncy layers were so delicate and structured all at the same time.  Of course you can never go wrong with a Vera.  Deep red bouquet by Tami Win of Le Fleur Couture.  To see more of Morgans photos from her wedding and engagement see HERE.

Natalie & Ryan {Published} Vows that Wow in Brides of North Texas Magazine

Thank you Brides of North Texas Magazine for selecting this beautiful wedding for your Vows that Wow.  Natalie and Ryan’s wedding was truly beautiful and to see more images check out their wedding and engagement blog posts.

Morgan & Jason {Married on New Years Eve} Fort Worth Club & FUMC

Morgan & Jason were married on New Years Eve.  In a way they were my last wedding of 2011 and my first of 2012 as we ended after midnight.  We had a truly beautiful day with them and I was SO very excited to shoot their wedding.  I had been on maternity leave from weddings for almost 3 months so it was awesome to be back doing my thing!  Morgan & Jason were married at First United Methodist Church with a reception to follow at Fort Worth Club.  Here are some of the amazing vendors they used:

Tami Winn Events – Floral

Vera Wang Gowns at Neiman Marcus

Dessy – Brides maid Attire

Ice House Band

Turquoise Video

4 flashes photo booth

Halo Bridal Salon

Gorbos Salon

Morgan kept her dress top secret from all of her bridesmaids and friends so I LOVE these two photos as her dress was brought out.  Her Mom looked so happy and her bridesmaids reactions was WOW!

Often my couples exchange gifts on the wedding day.  I love how expressionistic these two are!  Morgan admiring her Tiffany’s necklace and Jason lost his composure at the sight of his gift.

Confident.  best word to describe this beautiful bride.

The flower Girl watching as Morgan entered the hall.

I think Jason might have been nervous, he was puffing his cheeks out in anticipation but when he saw her…..he just smiled.

Perfect moment with Dad and Daughter.

The main reason I love unity candles is this.  The chance for the couple to steal a moment to themselves amidst the crowd.

I love how tender Jason is.  He kissed her on the shoulder as they danced their first dance.

A sweet moment during the prayer.

This kid had me wanting to run home, scoop up my boys and love on them.

Ice House band ROCKED it!!!

Always amazing flowers by Tami Winn

ADORE this photo of Jason with his Grandma.  Images like this are beyond priceless.

Happy New Year!!!

Natalie & Ryan {Married Momments & Details} University Christian & City Club Fort Worth

Often times couples ask me what makes for a great wedding and reception.  My answer varries as couples are looking for their parties to feel specific ways but Natalie knew exactly what she wanted and she knew how to get it.  A killer line up of vendors plus 400 guests made for an unforgettable night.   Entertainment has such an impact on the feeling of your reception and Professor D is one of my favorite bands that always brings the excitement from a wide range of songs to fun performances by the horn players.  Tami Winn provided the centerpieces and the bride’s bouquet.  Due to the large number of guests Natalie and Ryan reserved almost every square inch of City Club and Tami decked out the ballroom in magnificent pinks and the Oak Room in TCU purples.  Her towering pink and white bride’s cake and sweet horned frog clad grooms cake were by Creme de la Creme.

I am a bit obsessed with gowns and was SO happy to be photographing a Vera.  🙂

Those are some great look lashes!

Love how Natalie’s Mom looked at her and Natalie’s reaction to see Mom in her gown.

Everyone admiring Natalie in her gown.

Even though she saw Ryan before she didn’t put her veil on until right before the ceremony so he had not seen the complete look yet.

I love the moments before the door opens like this one.  That is one proud Dad.

So sweet.

That was one great kiss, I totally wasn’t expecting such a dramatic moment but I loved it.

Their first dance was magical and I loved how her dress moved.

At the end of the Father Daughter Dance the band kicked it up a notch.

There were some eager ladies waiting for the bouquet toss.

A stolen kiss on the dance floor.

And off on their Honeymoon!

Natalie & Ryan {Married First Look & Portraits} University Christian and City Club Fort Worth

Natalie and Ryan’s wedding was quite a beautiful affair.  The details, location and food were magnificent but more on that tomorrow.  Today it is all about their first look and portraits.  Natalie is an event planner out of Houston so she completely understood the importance of photos and knew that to get the most opportunity for images a first look is the way to go.  A few hours before the ceremony we set up Natalie in the courtyard of University christian in her to die for Vera Wang dress (does it look familiar?  Think Kate Hudson in Bride Wars!) and Ryan walked out to her with the biggest grin on his face.  I adored that he was so cautious as he walked up to her, careful not to step on the gown and leaning in for a kiss.  It was sweet that Natalie looked him over and smoothed his hair.  So truthful and a window into their loving marriage that was about to be.  After we took some romantic images of them both before family photos and a very fun night of celebration.  Check back tomorrow for all the details and tear jerking moments!

Grinning, yep, I think he loves her.

So careful but had to get a kiss.

Natalie had to help make him picture perfect.

They had a BIG and super fun bridal party.

The entire crew, bridesmaids, house party, groomsmen, ushers, flower girls and a ring bearer!!

Love this dramatic photo of Natalie in the church with her veil.

We never miss an opportunity to take advantage of the amazing downtown Fort Worth views from City Club‘s balcony.

It was a TCU kinda crowd, go Horned Frogs!!!

Natalie & Ryan {Married Sneak Peek} University Christian & City Club of Fort Worth

I am very excited to share this sneak peek today.  I am running off to the white sands and blue waters of St John for a family vacation and will be out of office for about a week.  I can’t wait to see the island again as the last time I was there I was married and had the best honeymoon possible.  While these two are on their honeymoon this week I wanted them to come home to at least a little peek at their wedding day.  Here are 6 photos that immediately stood out to me as I was working on her wedding this week.  A quiet moment alone in the courtyard of the church.  I love the hands and team work as her friends and family zipped up her to die for Vera Wang gown.  A sweet pink bouquet by Tami Winn complete with kissing frogs!  The looks on Natalie & Ryan’s faces as they saw each other for the first time make me smile.  A KILLER first kiss complete with one amazing dip.  Can’t wait to share more in a few weeks when I return.

If you need anything while I’m out please don’t hesitate to call or email as my office manager, Sarah, will be in office and checking my emails!  If you are looking to make an appointment to discuss your wedding photography be sure to email or call now as we will be undergoing some small increases in pricing effective July 1 for all new bookings.
