Maeve & Jesse | Barr Mansion Wedding

wedding at austins bar mansion

The few times I’ve been to Barr Mansion, I think to myself that it looks like a painting. A sweet little house painted a happy mint green; beautiful light; Art Nouveau accents. Maeve, in her 1930s-inspired wedding gown and a sprinkling of buds tucked into her hair, set against the halo of spokes on the mansion’s balcony, reminded me of a Mucha drawing.

Maeve and Jesse (whose gorgeous Olive & june engagement session can be found here) had a brunch wedding on a warm October morning. I loved the pops of color in their palette — wine-red flowers in Maeve’s bouquet, her blue topaz earrings and necklace to complement the wedding ring, a pink shrug she knitted herself — set against the greenery of Barr Mansion. French toast made with baguettes, homemade jam, and mimosas rounded out the festivities. I want to hug this wedding. I hope you enjoy!

Alley & Chad | Pop-Up Wedding in Mueller Park

Swathes of tulle and grand high heels. Alley swished through the grass at Austin’s Mueller Park in her layered bridal gown, as if she had stepped off a runway. Brooklyn, Alley and Chad’s pup, led the way on a leash.

They had planned on a big wedding at a lovely downtown venue, but scrapped that idea for this one: smaller. More intimate. At their favorite park where they love to take Brooklyn. With less than twenty people in attendance, and taking over a tiny corner of the grounds overlooking the duck-filled lake, Alley and Chad exchanged vows on a sunny Friday afternoon.

Here are a few of my favorite frames from that day.

Tatiana & Daniel | Intimate Wedding at Olive & June

austin hyde park wedding

Let me share one of the best moments of Tatiana and Daniel’s nighttime wedding at olive & june. The vows were read, the couple laughed throughout their ceremony, and the sun had set. Dish after dish was brought out to the long table of twenty-something friends and family gathered for this intimate celebration. Tatiana had a contingent of fellow Brazilians, and people toasted the couple with short, anecdotal speeches. Finally, Daniel stood up and thanked everyone for attending. “We’re so happy you could all be here because in eight months Tatiana is expecting…”

He paused for effect, as everyone at the table started whooping and clapping. “…to become a US citizen,” Daniel finished. The applause gave way to laughter.

And that is the kind of wedding Tatiana and Daniel put on. It was gorgeous, it was full of intimacy despite multiple languages, it was small, and it was perfect. Even looking through the photos now for this blog post, I can hear Tatiana’s amazing laughter. Love, love, and love.
