Sarah & Barrett’s Glamorous Pin Up Inspired Wedding

Sarah’s bridal shoot was super kick ass so I’m more than a little excited to be sharing her wedding today too. She married Barrett at Barr Mansion, Austin. She explained, “As for location, as I said several times, I didn’t want to be in the middle of a field with a bunch of grass and trees because that just isn’t me!  I love cities and urban living and wanted my photos to reflect my love for those quirky little places you find around Austin.”

“I loved the recycling plant idea with those huge piles of twisted metal!  My inspiration for my entire wedding look just came from my love for pin up girl looks along with the very intense desire to not look at my wedding photos in 20 years and say “Oh my gosh!  What was I thinking wearing that ______ (insert crazy, over trendy item here)!” I truly wanted a look that was me, just prettier!”

Sarah wore a Pronovias gown with flat Irregular Choice shoes (my kinda gal!) and made her own bouquet from jewellery. ” My necklace was actually found at one of those crazy bridal extravaganzas from Stella Dot.  Saw it there, tried it on, and decided within 5 minutes that it was THE necklace! My shoes were none other than Irregular Choice!  Love them!  I really wanted something fun, quirky, and comfortable…and flat, as Barrett is only about an inch taller than me!”

Love these guys! massive thanks to Sarah & Barrett and their photographer Caroline for sharing these today

    I heart this wedding theme and photos! It reminds me of how my husband and I did our own wedding. Threw away the ‘ ideal themes’ and catered to ourselves and what makes us, ‘us’. The ring-pop, the shoes, the puppy, ya’ll are just too adorable, I love it!!! I’m in Austin too and know how hard it was to find that special location. Ya’ll did a fantastic job in putting this all together in the most original ways!!! I think you’ve inspired me to try and submit my own wedding ~ even if almost a year ago!

  3. Love love love the venue, quirky and gorgeous. Totally agree with what Sarah said about wanting a look that was her but prettier, thats exactly what I wanted to do with mine.

  4. SUCH a gorgeous wedding. I could really feel the love of the day through the photos- and that sweet little Dachshund made my heart melt!!! Love her!
