The Allan House Wedding Photography | Melis & Tim – Austin, TX

Melis and Tim got married at the Allan House in downtown Austin. The whole wedding party was such a pleasure to work with! We started off the day at the capital for the bridal party photos and the first look amongst 100s of protestors. We found a little area of the lawn where we had our space though. Lindsay with in her shoes coordinating ran the show to perfection like always. I saw my now favorite cover band in Austin play for the first time as well, Electric Circus! They played all the pop hits but with a bit of a rock vibe with added electric guitar parts and rocking break downs. Her are my favorite pics from the day!

Here is a little info about the Allan House from their website:

In 1883, the same year the University of Texas opened, Scottish immigrant John T. Allan built the Victorian mansion now known as The Allan House. Allan, known as the “Father of Industrial Education in Texas,” was an attorney, public servant, and philanthropist. Initially Allan’s residence, The Allan House was later used as a girls’ school and boarding home. After Allan’s passing in 1888, he bequeathed The Allan House to the City of Austin with a request that the city establish an industrial school to teach the practical use of tools and scientific principles. In September 1986, as a result of his benefaction, a manual-training department was established at Austin High School. John T. Allan High School was named for him and opened in 1900. In 1936, a memorial to Allan was erected at John T. Allan High School (now the Austin Community College Rio Grande campus) in remembrance of his vision and generosity.

In 1905, Thomas E. Thrasher purchased The Allan House from the school board and it became known as The Allan-Thrasher House. The home was later inherited by his only unmarried child, Lois Deats Thrasher. Miss Thrasher, who lived to be over 100 years of age, resided in The Allan-Thrasher House until her death in 1992. During the 94 years that the house was owned by the Thrashers, it was often host to relatives who came for holidays, to spend summers, and to live while attending The University of Texas. After Miss Thrasher passed away the house stood empty for several years. On the last day of the twentieth century, December 31, 1999, Daniel Ross, an attorney and longtime Austin businessman, purchased The Allan House.”
