Hayley & David – Wedding Reception at The White SparrowDallas, Texas

Hayley & David may have had a rainy wedding day but that didn’t stop the party or the gorgeous details and fun to be had!  The White Sparrow barn looked stunning with floral draping the staircase and lush greenery.  These two knew from the beginning that they wanted to emphasize the party – with every person on the dance floor, breaking it down, until last call.  They most certainly accomplished that!  The dance floor was so crowded the wedding planning team had to pull back the head table to make more room for all the fun!  Hayley brought an extra side of excitement to her Father daughter dance – they brought all the moves!  Check out the fun images below!

We believe in making the best in what we are given and this couple and their families embraced the day right along with us.  We did night portraits outside once the rain stopped, family photos on the floral cover stairs and went with the flow for a perfect wedding day.

Thanks Hayley and David for including us!  We had a blast thanks to the two of you and your community of loving people.  Super shout out of praise to all the vendors for their hard work!

Laura & Dave – Wedding Reception at the George W. Bush Presidential CenterDallas, Texas

After the wedding Laura sent me a little info about a few of her favorite parts of her day:

“Not exactly unique, but obviously the one thing I was most excited for was just getting to marry Dave”

I mean isn’t that the cutest?  I loved that when I asked her what she was looking forward to about the wedding this was first on her mind, not things but Dave!  It says so much about her heart for him and the amazing marriage they are going to have.  She also liked some of the fun stuff!  Here is what she had to say about that:

“I absolutely loved being able to have both the A&M and UT aspects come together for our wedding. Being able to have the half maroon and half burn orange koozies, as well as playing the Aggie War Hymn and the Eyes of Texas to represent both my and Dave’s alma maters was great (and it was a plus that we didn’t have any “school fights” break out or anything like that!).

Another thing I also loved about out wedding was that we were able to have a photobooth. Dave and I have always loved taking photobooth pictures together; it doesn’t matter where we are, anytime we find a photobooth, we have to take a picture together! We were able to take copies of some of the pictures we have taken together over the years in photobooths and blow them up for a poster to put next to our photobooth!

Another thing we both feel so blessed to have had on our wedding day was that we were able to have so many of our family members and friends some celebrate us from so many difference parts of the country (and world). We had family come in from East Texas, Dallas, Pennsylvania, Boston, but also had friends who came in from Florida, NYC, California, and even Australia! We felt so much love being able to celebrate with everyone!”

 

It was an awesome celebration!  We had a fabulous time and I want to thank every vendor that worked so hard to make this night such a success:

Catherine & Jimmy – Wedding Reception at Times Ten CellarDallas, Texas

Catherine & Jimmy said their vows by a waterfall out of the country but they wanted to celebrate their marriage here in Texas with family and friends!  It was an honor to meet these two and party with their people at Times Ten Cellar in Dallas.  It was a fun filled night with great music, fabulous food and some super cool Vietnamese lion dancing!

Abbey & Andrew – Wedding Reception at The Ashton DepotFort Worth, Texas

When you put a gorgeous couple at the Ashton Depot you really can’t go wrong and this night was amazing.  The team with Out of the Garden filled the space with beautiful tall centerpieces that had so much texture and interesting shapes.  The room was color washed and the ceiling had a patterned gobo to really make the depot look full and vibrant!  As the guests arrived they enjoyed cocktails on the tented patio with passed appetizers  and lounge furniture.

As the band announced the bridal party the anticipation built and when the Mr. & Mrs. where finally called into the room everyone stood and applauded as they took to the dance floor for their first dance.  Abbey and Andrew could not have been smiling bigger as they held each other close and Andrew spinned and dipped his new wife!  We jumped right into dances with Mom and Dad before settling into a fabulous dinner by The Ashton Depot.  During toasts everyone laughed at the silly stories and sweet words of their bridal party and Abbey’s Dad.  I love watching the parents during toasts and I captured Abbey’s parents being oh so sweet to one another.  🙂

Then it was PARTY time!  Drinks in the air, jumping and dancing and cutting up on the dance floor!  The Downtown Fever Band led everyone on night that was jam packed with fun.  I am sure many feet were aching when it was time to depart.  As guests lit sparklers Abbey & Andrew enjoyed a private last dance.  One last moment in their wedding reception before dashing off to their vintage limo.

I am lucky to have such gorgeous and kind clients and even more so that they select such great vendors to work along side:

Madison & Holt – Wedding Reception at The Modern Art Museum Fort Worth

Madison & Holt’s wedding reception at The Modern was a non stop party!  These two stayed close all night and I saw SO much love between these two.  A couple on a crowded dance floor gets to drop everything away and just be them.  I am pretty sure that Madison has always hoped for a man to look at her like this, looking at this first photo you can see Holt adores her.  Getting to capture moments like this is why I do this job and I think I have the best job in the world.  Their party wasn’t just full of emotion but it was gorgeous too!  Towering clean lined centerpieces with a classic aesthetic paired perfectly with this couples personality.  Thanks to all the vendors who made the pretty happen:

Ali & Brent – Wedding Reception at Fort Worth Club

 

Tracy Autem & Lightly Photography 2014

After a touch of pre ceremony rain we had bright sunny skies for some photos outdoors before heading to Alison and Brent’s wedding reception.  I just love the exterior at Robert Carr Chapel, completely classic and so romantic.  The couple and their bridal party had a bit of fun on the step and a groomsmen’s jacket may have been damaged by their shenanigans. 🙂  Then it was off to the reception for a fabulous party with Trey & the Tritones and a delicious sit down dinner by Fort Worth Club.  Brent ended their first dance with a dip and a kiss and before long the floor was full and stayed packed with dancing and fun all night long!  For their cakes the couple gave a not to their alma matter, Baylor with a themed cake and  a fun gobo light.  From the first dance to the last dance this night was perfect.

Thanks to the vendor team who made their day a success:
