We knew from the get-go we would marry in Austin. Both of us "discovered" Austin separately about 9 years ago, and it 'twas love at first site, much like when Lance and I met in 2005. We were so excited to show off our town to all of our family & friends! We did a fun pub crawl downtown on July 4th of our wedding weekend, and had great local recommendations (like Barton Springs!) for guests. Getting married at the Barr Mansion was the icing on the cake- as to us, this location truly represented everything we've come to know and love about our town, and everything came full circle. We wouldn't change a thing about our wedding day/weekend!
Matthew is locally based in Austin, and was our 2nd photographer, since my brother did a lot of photographs too. Matthew has an amazing artistic eye, and takes gorgeous pictures. Check out our wedding pictures on his website!
Andy is my brother and an extremely talented photographer! He is primarily based out of Houston but does travel when requested. If you want an amazing variety of photos, he's your guy!! He gave us so many gorgeous pictures to choose from, it was incredible. He didn't miss a beat!!!
The entire Barr Mansion staff was amazing during our process- from the moment we set the date to the day of. Everything ran so smoothly, and we loved having Abby as our on-site coordinator- she actually grew up in the Mansion, and it is a family run business, which we love!
Shawn was super professional, and let us choose all of our own music (which is what we preferred). Helped make everything run VERY smoothly!
This was an awesome idea- we had a real live old fashioned photo booth at our wedding! With the rental guests get unlimited pictures, and the attendant brings plenty of fun props. Best of all, the attendant helps guests glue a copy of their pictures into a guest book, where they can write a message for the bride/groom. What a fun keepsake- all of our guests LOVED it!
Everyone here said Brooke was THE wedding hair girl- and they were absolutely right! She took the pictures I brought in and created exactly what I'd envisioned.. and she was a delight to work with!
The Barr Mansion- absolutely BREATHTAKING, and we LOVED that they provided us with local organic food, tables/chairs, on site coordinating, etc. Everyone who attended raved that it was one of the most unique & beautiful spots they'd ever been to.
