Barr Mansion Photography Night Wedding | Ellen + Thomas – Austin, TX

Barr Mansion Photography Night Wedding | Ellen + Thomas – Austin, TX

I was looking forward to this wedding for some time! For one I love shooting at the Barr Mansion and second I am always up for a challenge. Night weddings are always more challenging because you have no idea how it is going to look until the sun goes down. They had the ILD (Intelligent lighting Design) team light the ceremony. It is fun seeing all the different ways you can shoot a night ceremony within the 20 minutes you have to capture it. I always shoot night weddings 3 different ways and then figure out what I like best after I get them up on my computer screen. I shot this one with just the lighting company’s lights, my off camera flashes, and on board flash. I tried to mix all three in this post. This wedding was such a blast to document! Lauren Maria Films did the video, Match Maker played the jams, and Krystal Wigfield put it all together with her mad coordinating skillz. Enjoy my favorite pics from the day!

Some info from the Barr Mansion site:

“Before it was the go-to spot for epic events, Barr Mansion was home to William Braxton Barr, whose grandfather founded Sprinkle, the township Barr Mansion sits in today. The grounds were used to cultivate cotton and the mansion housed William and his family. In the span of his life, William Braxton Barr built the town of Sprinkle from a single farm into a town of several hundred.

The mansion remained a home for the Barr family until 1981 when it was purchased by Melanie McAfee. She began holding events there, doing all the cooking for guests herself. As citizens of Austin began to discover this hidden gem, an event staff was hired and the space slowly developed into the majestic three buildings and gourmet kitchen Austinites party at today.

Our mansion has stood strong for over 100 years, a true piece of Texas history. The 18th century ballroom was shipped piece by piece from New York, because once we saw it we knew those huge glass windows would vibe perfectly with the landscape. Some of the barn timbers were trees when Christopher Columbus arrived in America. We’re fiercely proud of our roots, and of what we’ve become.”
