Jennifer and Sean’s Allan House Wedding

Today, I’m sharing Jennifer and Sean’s Allan House wedding story! This was a really touching wedding to shoot – you can tell how much the bride and groom love each other (it jumps right off the page in some of these photos!), and the gorgeous Allan House was a perfect backdrop to capture the really special moments.


The Allan House

Located in Downtown Austin, this Victorian mansion and courtyard is such a lovely place to shoot. The flexibility of having access to the courtyard for your  ceremony allows you to enjoy a gorgeous day! 

From their website: Using only the inside, we can accommodate wedding ceremonies of up to 65 guests and seated dinners of 50, depending on your seating style. Using the courtyard and garden area, as most brides and grooms choose to do, we can accommodate ceremonies and seated dinners for up to 225 guests.

Look at this dress! The details, the lighter than air skirt, the fabric – and the hanger even reads Mrs. Barry!

There is something extra special about that brief moment when all the bridesmaids and family come together to help the bride into her dress.

The beautiful bridesmaids and the lovely bride right before the ceremony – the pop of color really stands out against the Victorian detail of the Allan House.
It was a warm day in June, and the lovely Miss Jennifer is staying hydrated and relaxed!

This is a lovely detail followed by a beautiful moment that I was honored to capture! The handkerchief is a gift from the bride to her mother with a personal note stitched across it.

Then it was time to have a little photography fun!  (Pro tip:  In all my timelines I make sure to schedule multiple little photo breaks for the couple.)
