DFW Wedding Planner: Vendor Spotlights

This week we’re revisiting a helpful series on the blog: Vendor Spotlights! We’ll interview a few of our favorite vendors, so you can get the inside scoop on wedding industry tips and trends—from experts we trust. Executing a seamless wedding must be a team effort; top-notch vendors all work together to bring your creative vision to life. As a DFW wedding planner, we’ve had the pleasure of working with countless businesses over the past decade. As such, we’re proud to showcase our tried-and-true vendors, helping you connect with qualified professionals we can confidently recommend for your big day.

For our first Vendor Spotlight, we’re welcoming back Tracy of Tracy Autem Photography. After over a decade in business, she’s a true expert on timeless wedding photography… and she’s always pushing her own creative boundaries to find and capture the unique qualities about every couple’s relationship. Meet Tracy and her amazing team at Lightly Photography, Amanda McCollum and Annie Norvell (both incredible photographers in their own right!):

 

Today, we’re revisiting Tracy’s take on a controversial topic: the “First Look.” What are the pros and cons? Could a first look be right for you? As a photographer, Tracy has had ample experience at weddings with and without a first look. She sums up the best advice we’ve heard in just one statement:

“Seeing one another before the ceremony is a big decision for today’s brides. When asked this question by my couples, I have one simple bit of advice: Be Authentic.”

We couldn’t agree more! Like most wedding decisions, the option to have a first look is a personal choice that should reflect your authentic love story. Tracy goes on to say:

“It is your day, your vision, your romance and as a bride and groom. Everything about your day should reflect you as a couple. When it comes to first looks, you should do what feels right and makes sense for your desired photography.”

Tracy is right on point. Unfortunately, it may not always be so black and white. What if you’re on the fence about a first look? There are some practical pros and cons to consider; take a look at Tracy’s list to help inform your decision.

Pro’s

  • Are either of you the nervous type or get flustered in front of large crowds? At the thought of being the center of attention do you turn green? If you (or your spouse to be) suffers from anxiety or some major nerves, seeing each other beforehand takes the edge off. Besides, you have picked this person to spend the rest of your life with! They are probably the best cure to those anxious feelings and being apart just seems unnatural.
  • Get to the party faster! Guests can enjoy a short cocktail hour and then on to the party.  Why?  Because with a first sight most (if not all) of your formal photography can be accomplished prior to your guests arriving at the ceremony.
  • Location, location, location!  Seeing each other early sometimes means capturing daylight in the winter months before your evening ceremony, visiting a favorite spot, adding variety to your images by changing locations and having a relaxing time doing so (no rushing!)
  • Emotional responses and plenty of time to twirl in your gown and let that guy gush over your wedding day look. Hug, smile, kiss, laugh and actually get to talk to each other when you see one another (during a ceremony you might get a whisper in—no major conversation until that ring is on!)

Con’s

  • You’re a traditional kinda girl/guy. It’s okay! If this is you, then skip right on down to saying no to this trend. If you love all things time-honored and true, you may regret stepping out of your box this time.
  • You are having a BIG split of time on your wedding day (think hours between the wedding and reception.) If this is the case, all the pro’s above are null and void—you have so much time in between to take photos that you can be leisurely about it.

 

As a photographer, Tracy is definitely in favor of first looks; they allow more time for her to capture those intimate moments between the bride and groom, preserving this special moment on camera. However, what we love most about Tracy is that she puts her couples first! No matter which route you take, she will capture timeless romantic photos that speak to your authentic love story.

It has been a pleasure to work with Tracy time and time again. Her passion for wedding photography  and her enthusiastic personality are a welcome asset on your big day. We recommend her services with confidence, and love working alongside this talented photographer! Take a peek at some of our recent work together, and be sure to check out her portfolio for more.

Claire + Kevin | Elegant Garden Wedding at Arlington Hall

Event Planner + Wedding Florist Dallas TX | A Stylish Soiree

Event Planner + Wedding Florist Dallas TX | A Stylish Soiree

 

Congratulations to our recent newlyweds Claire and Kevin! These two sweethearts tied the knot at an elegant outdoor ceremony hosted in November at Arlington Hall. Nestled into Uptown’s Turtle Creek Lee Park, this venue provided a sophisticated backdrop to a beautiful garden ceremony and tented reception. Personalized with lush florals and romantic lanterns, it set the tone for a memorable celebration of Claire and Kevin’s love story. Thank you to Sarah Kate Photography for capturing every detail!

This wedding  was inspired by The Secret Garden—a favorite childhood story. Taking cues from this theme, we designed a ceremony space that captured the magic of Frances Hodgson Burnett’s novel. Guests were directed through Lee Park, where they could read fun facts about the couple posted throughout the garden area, sipping on champagne served along the way.

From the moment she donned her sweetheart neckline dress, Claire was such a graceful bride. Her lace gown made a romantic impact, accented by a classic up-do. With charming accessories – classic pearls and glittering shoes – Claire was the picture of bridal elegance. Kevin’s smile upon seeing his bride during their First Look says it all!

Meanwhile, the bridal party mastered the art of perfectly mismatched bridesmaid dresses in soft pastel hues with a bit of sparkle. And how adorable are the ring bearer and flower girl?!

The Ceremony

The garden ceremony featured lush floral garlands, capped with blush and white roses. A lantern-lined aisle completed the look, providing a romantic setting for Claire and Kevin’s “I do.”

The Reception

After the happy couple had tied the knot, guests moved into a tented reception area decked with lush floral design at every turn. Working in a traditional blush and red color palette, we put a personalized twist on each floral element to make it unique to Claire and Kevin’s special day.

An overhead floral installation made a stunning first impression upon entering the reception area, and it tied in in perfectly with the ceremony’s lantern décor.  Twinkling string lights were the icing on the cake for this romantic scene!

Elegant Barnyard Wedding

We had a great time working with Stephanie Harvey Benton on Dayton and Andy’s Elegant Barnyard Wedding.  The day was captivating with the beautiful flower arrangements and little charming details.  The White Sparrow Barn was such a wonderful backdrop, helping capture all of the pretty moments of the day. Dayton’s wedding design was inspired by the Christian Contemporary singer, Kari Jobe’s wedding. Natural greens and stunning fall colors made this wedding pop again the ethereal white backdrop of the White Sparrow Barn.

Kim and Mark’s Reata Fort Worth Wedding was truly a day to remember!  From the moment they said their nuptials at St. Patricks Cathedral to the roof top reception at Reata, the day was full of enchanted moments and visionary keepsakes.  The bride kept the color palette soft and romantic with pink bridesmaids dresses and pops of coral incorporated in the bouquets.  The brides delicate lace dress was easy and delightful, perfect for this wonderful day!

The Roof Top of the Reata is such a terrific place to host a reception.  The bride and groom could not have asked for better weather on their wedding night.  The bride continued her soft and romantic theme throughout the reception with soft flowers on each table accompanied by candle light.

The York Manor Wedding

The York Manor Bride

Christa and Jason had a lovely July wedding at The York Manor in the historic Highland Park neighborhood of Los Angeles. This wedding was one for the books, or #oneforthebrooks, as they would say! These two radiated love and respect for each other. It is not often that you can feel the love from the bride and groom, family and friends filling the whole event space…but you could feel it here, and that made the whole wedding even more special and beautiful.

The York Manor was also the spot for the ceremony. The bride used neutral colors of greens, whites and ivories mixed with natural elements, geometric shapes and lots of gold. The florals designed by Darling and Mister were to die for. It turned out amazing! Her dress was a custom Gretchen Dawley design covered in head to toe sequins! There were so many amazing details. The bride and groom both have extremely talented musical siblings which made for some special moments in the ceremony.

Kendal and Cory’s Brook Hollow Country Club Wedding was festive and full of life!  The bride and groom met in San Antonio while in college and Fiesta was a big part of their journey together.  Naturally the couple incorporated this into their decor for a Fiesta inspired wedding.  Fiesta is the memory of the battles of The Alamo and San Jacinto.  Filled with bright colors, flower crowns and parades full of whimsical floats, Fiesta was the inspiration for this colorful celebration.
