Barr Mansion, Austin Wedding Photographer

Shannon and Sean were married at one of my favorite Austin wedding venues, the Barr Mansion. The weather was perfect for their ceremony next to the rose garden, and they were married when the grounds at the mansion are the most lush with flowers and greenery.

One detail that I absolutely loved was how many of the bridesmaids wore detailed headbands — they looked like Greek goddesses! Shannon and Sean’s wedding theme was one of the season’s hottest trends. I absolutely loved their wedding colors, and how the color matched so well with the Barr Mansion. (Their dresses nearly matched the paint in the bride’s room!)

Shannon and Sean have many special relationships, and it was really special to photograph all of the unique interactions throughout the day. Some of my favorite images are when Shannon was tearing up with her and the bridesmaids as she was getting ready.

I love learning about clients personal music choice, and Shannon had the best music playing as she and the bridesmaids were getting ready. I swear I thought Shannon had hijacked my iTunes purchase list from recent months! (It turns out it was a Pandora station — I think it was the “Mama said,” station.

During the reception, Shannon danced to one of her favorite songs, “Jump in the Line/Shake Senora.” It was such a fun moment as some of the men lifted Shannon in the air. These are some of my personal favorite images — enjoy!

Shannon and Sean have an incredible group of friends, who were definitely the life of the party. Their reception was full of fun moments, and this was a group that I could photograph over and again every weekend. They really know how to throw a party!
