Barr Mansion Wedding | Kindall + Scott

Q:  How did you meet?

A: "We both grew up in San Antonio and went to all the same schools from 1st grade through high school. We had mutual friends, but didn't know each other that well until we had a class together senior year of high school. We became fast friends and I ended up with a big crush on Scott, but graduation happened and we went off to different colleges, A&M for Scott and Texas State for me. We both moved to Austin after we graduated and that is where we reconnected about 4 years ago."

Q:  Tell us about your wedding details.

A:  "Barr Mansion had everything we were looking for; a natural shady outdoor area for the ceremony (we got married under the big oak tree), two amazing plan B options that didn't feel like an after thought in the event of rain (the farmstead and the ballroom), beautiful grounds that scream Austin, and delicious organic food with ingredients grown from the gardens onsite. The decor was very custom to our tastes. It could be described as midcentury boho -- overall very eclectic. We started out with soft and muted colors in a range of creams and blushes for the ceremony and the colors increase in vibrancy and range as the night progresses with warm tones from coral, deep orange, terra cotta, golden rod, to sage and emerald green for the reception. Usage of succulents and air plants, terrariums, candles, drift wood, bold stationery, colorful patterned rugs, and soft lounges added interest and layered the design.

Erik + Ivonne

Erik and Ivonne met thru a photo on a friends desk.  Ivonne's pretty face caught Erik's eye and from that the pursing began. From the couple....

"We wanted our wedding to scream "rustic elegance" and Barr Mansion fit that perfectly.  Everything about Barr fit our personalities.  The charming details in the mansion and the modern glass-front reception area complimented our wedding vision."

"Erik and the Groomsmen's suspenders were all held on by safety pins and last minute sewing skills.  Apparently no one noticed their pants didn't come with the suspender buttons.  They realized it right before they were supposed to leave the house.  So while they were supposed to be all dressed and on their way to the venue, they were sitting at home sewing on buttons, like a group of little old ladies."

Favorite part of the day....

"Our favorite part of the day was the ceremony.  At that moment, there was no one there but Erik and me.  Everyone around us disappeared and time seemed to stand still as we said our vows to each other.  It was surreal."
