Eclectic Barr Mansion Wedding

Whimsical Weddings

Almost any wedding at Austin’s Barr Mansion is going to be a winner, especially when it’s photographed by the incomparable Alixann Loosle Photography. But when you add in a reception with mood lighting and a bride wearing a purple patterned Zac Posen gown, I’m going to be floored. Take special note of Kaki and Robbie’s ceremony under the trees – one of our favorites this year.

From the bride, Kaki: We wanted a Soulful and Spiritual gathering of friends and family witnessing and supporting us in the commitment of our vows and celebration. It was a non traditional wedding celebration, marching to the beat of our own drums and our day was a true reflection of just that. Our theme was Victorian Vogue. Oriental rugs, church pews, religious candles etc… Evoked the feeling of a catholic cathedral, set amongst the trees. No color scheme.

    Oh what a gorgeous couple! I love it when couples do things their own way, especially in the dress department. Wow.

  7. Beautiful Bridal

    I shouldn’t be surprised that a gown that beautiful was made by my favorite designer, Zac Posen. Twenty years from now their guests will still be talking about that gorgeous dress!
