Mr & Mrs Matt Hensley – A Dallas Wedding at Maple Manor

Dallas Wedding Photographer Tracy Autem Maple Manor Hotel Ceremony Bride Groom Recessional

Married!

This day was all about the moments.  I love documenting what happens at weddings and for Ashley and Matt that is what I did.  The day started off at the Warwick Hotel in Dallas where we photographed Ashley and her girls getting ready.  Ashley is absolutely stunning but when I met her Mom and Grandma I could see not only where she got her looks but her amazingly sweet personality.  Her Grandma had me just grinning ear to ear because she was so full of joy!  Ashley had a drop dead gown by Pronovias, one of my favorite designers.  Sarah Rizy headed off to Maple Manor where the ceremony was held to catch some getting ready photos of the guys before we sequestered Matt away as Ashley arrived leading up to the ceremony.  It may have been hot last weekend but everyone braved it and it was well worth it as we had a pretty blue sky and a touching ceremony.  Matt is all about dipping Ashley so I was ready for it and captured it right after their first kiss as man and wife and before Ashley threw up her arms in victory at becoming Mrs. Hensley!  Here are some photos of their Dallas Wedding with part 2 coming soon highlighting their non-stop dance party reception and highlights slide show.

One of her girls gave her this thoughtfull gift to hang her dress on and I just loved it! Want one for your wedding day? They can be found on Etsy.com, the hanger for your dress is one of the most overlooked details that I wish all brides would think of.

Dallas Fort Worth Wedding Photographer Tracy Autem Love Notes Crochet Hook

They agreed not to get each other wedding gifts but wrote love notes to one another. Ashley broke the rule a bit and included a crochet hook so he could help her out of her dress later that night. Those buttons can be a nightmare with out one!
