Jason + Vanessa | Barr Mansion Wedding

carry your heart with me (i carry it in
my heart)i am never without it (anywhere
i go you go,my dear; and whatever is done
by only me is your doing,my darling)
i fear

no fate (for you are my fate,my sweet)i want
no world (for beautiful you are my world,my true)
and it's you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you

here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life;which grows
higher than the soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart

i carry your heart (i carry it in my heart)

These were the words spoken at Vanessa's ceremony-- A small glimpse into the perfection of the evening.
The weather, magnificent.
The guests, she was surrounded by those she loved, and loved her.
And as they ran through the sparklers in one last grandiose, I can only assume Vanessa felt a thousands times more of the fulfillment that I did...
We're honored to have played a small part in something so profound.

Mr and Mrs| Jason and Vanessa
Venue: Barr Mansion
Location: Austin, Texas
Makeup: Keep Austin Gorgeous
DJ: Byrne Rock

I cannot even begin to say enough great things about Jason and Vanessa...You might scroll down and see the post I blogged after the rehearsal.
When I heard of Vanessa's vendors I squealed in delight-- we'd never shot at the Barr Mansion but after perusing their site and going to the rehearsal I knew great things were in store! Boy were we right! KAG rocked the bridal parties makeup (what's new?!) and Byrne Rock kept the party hopping all night long.
They opted to see each other before the ceremony and we scouted out the best location during the rehearsal. We've heard how this "breaks tradition" but all the way around, this couldn't be the more chill way to go:

#1) We can get AWESOME photos of your "first view". Sometimes during the ceremony b/c of the angles or slim view we have, we'll only get a single photo of the grooms face in awe. But this way we can catch the whole embrace.
#2) Did you know the entire wedding you'll probably not have a single moment alone with your new spouse??? This gives you a few brief moments... to share what's on your heart... to tell each other how hot you look and guess what... we're capturing it all!
#3) Don't think you'll be nervous the day of? Newsflash! One of you will most likely be quaking out of your clothes! If you see each other beforehand you have more time to breathe.
#4) Most importantly, it provides us time to take incredible photos of the couple before the ceremony so that is more time you can spend at your cocktail hour that you've paid to enjoy! Which in turn allows us to take candids of you with your guests instead of lining thirsty/hungry guests up for more photos!
