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!

      This wedding is STUNNING Elissa!!! It makes me want to move wherever you are! The colours are perfect, and it’s so beautifully captured.

      Really cool ceremony and wedding venue. What a moments you’ve captured. Nice work!

      What a beautiful location! Everyone looks so happy. :-)

      The shot where he’s fiddling with the ring, and she’s bent over with laughter; amazing. Fantastic moment.
