Corin and Kieran had a beautiful winter wedding this January. The ceremony was inside the Artisan Ballroom with the glass wall behind them as their backdrop. Candles lined the aisle and added to the ambiance of a candlelit wintery backdrop.
Though it was still Texas—so it wasn’t that cold, and it was warm enough to be able to take lots of pictures outside and enjoy the gardens before the ceremony.
Getting ready inside the Mansion…
During the ceremony the groom played the guitar, while the groom’s mother sang, and the bride’s mother played the keyboard to “Oh Heavenly Day” — a very touching moment.
An eco-conscious couple, the flowers were all certified organic and some of the dusty miller foliage was actually grown right at Barr Mansion. The bride carried cream roses, cream alstroemeria and gray dusty miller. The bridesmaids carried cream and peach roses with peach alstroemeria and gray dusty miller. The boutonnieres were made of alstroemeria as well.
A beautiful, yet simple, bride’s cake was adorned with the roses and alstroemeria as well.
And the night was filled with dancing. A good time was had by ALL. The dancing was broken up momentarily for a surprise serenade by the groom to his bride, incredibly sweet and thoughtful.
The couple left on a tandem bicycle, the bride not afraid to hike up her dress and ride side saddle. In fact it was so much fun, they went back and came around again. They did not ride ALL the way home on a bike though, this laid-back couple rode away on a bus with their friends.
Thanks for the beautiful images Sandy Carson!!! Much appreciated.
