Kick off those shoes chicks, this bohemian wedding will have you wishing for some green grass to wiggle your toes in. From the bride’s barefoot sandals to their gorgeous and organic certified venue, Barr Mansion, Liz and Jay’s big day is a can’t miss!
From the Bride
Those barefoot sandals were the bane of my existence in the weeks leading up to the wedding. I wanted them so badly but it was difficult trying to get them shipped in time from Turkey from someone who didn’t speak English. They arrived in San Antonio as I was walking out the door to drive to Austin at the last minute possible, and ended up being my absolute favorite detail of the day.
It was a whirlwind of a day! It was everything I dreamed it would be after two years of planning, it was almost an out of body experience. To see everything we had been imagining actually playing out, with some champagne in hand, was the most cathartic experience of my life. It felt amazing to finally be enjoying our friends and family at that beautiful venue.
My niece the flower girl had a meltdown right before she was supposed to walk out because she didn’t want to go alone… so my brother had to run in and carry her out from the side inside of down the aisle. I heard he did a great job of throwing the petals though! My aunt officiating the ceremony was really special to me as well. I spent all my childhood summers visiting her and my grandparents in Brooklyn.
Words from the Vendors
From Day 7 Photography:
This beautiful couple was the definition of “bohemian chic,” and I especially loved that the bride went barefoot for her wedding. Their venue, Barr Mansion, is the only organic certified venue in the nation, which fit perfectly with their love for the earth and the outdoors.
From the Bride
I really loved looking at the baby pictures on all the tables of Jay and I. I hadn’t seen Jay’s and vice versa, so it was fun to look together.
I loved Jay’s Sooner cake! Barr Mansion only uses organic materials and they emailed me a week before saying the cake may be purplish instead of crimson because they would use beet juice. If there was only one thing that could upset Jay on the wedding day it would be having an A&M colored OU cake instead of the proper crimson! So we had the decoration brought down from Okalahoma with Jay’s parents, and it was perfect.
