Barr Mansion Wedding Photography, Austin

Never underestimate a groom who gives good hugs.

“Hugs?” you ask. Yes. Hugs.

If there’s anything that I learned from observing Alma and Ethan — apart for their deep respect and love for each other — is how the groom really embraces his family and friends. (You’ll see this in the wedding photography slideshow above.) The interaction and moments I saw moved me because it showed how close the couple really is with their friends and family. It showed how much each moment meant to the couple. They soaked up every minute they could throughout their wedding reception. It was a true family celebration — where friends were just like family.

Alma and Ethan were married at the Barr Mansion, which is one of Austin’s most well-known and loved wedding venues. Stems Foral Design is another Austin favorite florist, and Alma’s bouquet was stunning! Here are just a few of my favorite images from their day. Special thanks to Lisa Hause, who knows how to rock the tight photography shots. Photographs of the beautiful and unique wedding details will come soon …
