Barr Mansion, Austin, Texas | Melanie + Justin

Where do I begin… First a little bit about Melanie… I have known her for quite awhile now, and have absolutely loved taking her pictures over the years, while watching her and her two kids, Sawyer and Audrey grow up, and build their beautiful life. Melanie is the best Mom, and every time I am with her, I always think about how lucky her kids are to have a Mom like her. She loves so deeply, and is one of the most passionate, hard working people I have ever met. Her wells run deep, and she is the kind of person I love to be around and talk too. I googled that phrase and it said this: “The phrase “wells run deep” is an idiom that means a person who appears quiet or calm on the surface may have great depth of character, knowledge, or emotion. It suggests that there is more to someone or something than meets the eye, and that beneath a calm exterior, there may be profound thoughts or feelings.” She is as beautiful on the inside, as she clearly is on the outside. She pictures below for proof! She is also hilarious, literally one of my favorite people to send reels and memes too on Instagram, HAH!

The day I met Justin, I instantly had the best feeling, knowing that Melanie had found her true love. He was the nicest guy, so personable and someone you could talk too so easily. Melanie + Justin reside here in the Seacoast area of New Hampshire, but got married in Austin, Texas where Justin is from. They chose the Barr Mansion for their big day. It was the most stunning venue to have their wedding ceremony and reception. Her color combination of champagne dresses, black tuxes, white shirts was so elegant and beautiful. The combination of her flowers, white and pink roses, with pops of oranges, pampas, wheat, white filler, silver dollar eucalyptus made for such a beautiful site to see.

The day went off without a hitch, and it was the perfect day to begin as officially husband and wife. Surrounded with friends and family from near and far, it couldn’t have gone better… delicious food, dancing and so much love. They danced to Stand by Me, by Skylar Gray and it brought so many to tears, so incredibly beautiful. The exit for the night was the very best (scroll down to see), they had glow sticks and glow heart glasses as they left! So much fun!

Melanie + Justin… I have no doubt that you two will have a long, happy life together. Congratulations, and best wishes for all of the good things ahead.
