Prospect House | Flannery + Nick's New Years Eve Wedding

In their own words.

Q:  How did you meet?

A:  We were high school sweethearts, we met freshmen year.

Q:  Tell us about your wedding details.

A:  We chose Prospect House because we wanted to get married in the Texas hill country but we didn't want to go too rustic. The venue capitalized two things we love about Texas, the rolling hills and open sky. Having a modern blank space, we were able to incorporate more romantic elements like lanterns, candle light, greenery and organic florals to soften the ceremony and reception space without over powering it. When I was describing to Kate the type of aesthetic I wanted, West Elm meets Anthropology, she got it right away and the result was the perfect mix of modern, romance and whimsey.

Q:  What was your favorite part of the wedding day?

A:  Flannery- My favorite part was walking into the ceremony. I hadn't seen it lit up and fully put together yet and it was breathtaking. I was really anxious and ready to just get married but walking outside to the candle lit ceremony space with my parents, surrounded by loved ones and seeing Nick waiting at white square framed by the hills made me calm down and just live in the moment. Also, there were several fireworks that went off in the background during our ceremony as well so it felt like everyone was celebrating with us.

Nick- Seeing her in her dress for the first time. It was also great celebrating with so many of our close friends and family.

The Plant at Kyle | Ashley + Jake

It's been a while since this wedding but I love it so much I went 3 hard drives back to find it and post it.  Ashley and Jake did an amazing job with the details.  I especially love the flowers and place settings.  Not to mention The Plant at Kyle is one of my top 5 wedding venues in the greater Austin area.  I love Lake Flato design and architecture.  Truly stunning!

From the bride and groom..

"The Plant was incredible! We instantly fell in love with the modern, industrial building against the sprawling 12 acres of hill country. We did most things ourselves with the help of our friends and family. We had a lovely rehearsal dinner at The Plant where we ate barbecue, danced and roasted s'mores by the fire. Our family got to stay with us in the house all weekend, so we had plenty of time to decorate and get everything ready. Plus you can have your friends camp on the 12 acres! (Only one strong couple survived the cold!) It was a lovely time filled with loved ones and so many good memories! "

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."
