Page and Joe from Albuquerque, NM - Married at Barr Mansion in Austin, Tx.
Joe and I, both born and raised in the Southwest, met in 2004 in the least likely of places—at Lehigh University in eastern Pennsylvania. After graduation, we knew it was time to move back west, closer to home. After a stint of Joe living in Scottsdale and me returning to my hometown of Austin, we began to feel the strain of being in a long-distance relationship. In 2006, we decided to meet in the middle and relocated to Albuquerque, New Mexico. I really think that’s when we knew we were in it, together, for the long haul.
When Joe popped the question in New York City in December 2011, we knew we wanted to get married in Austin. The search began for a venue that captured the beauty and history of central Texas, but also wasn't too stuffy (Joe and I are not fancy people!). The majority of our guests were from out of state, so our first priority was to find a super cool spot for our celebration. We wanted everyone to get the “true Austin experience”—a little bit of swank and a little bit of country.
I fell in love with the Barr Mansion the second I laid eyes on it. Despite the dreary February weather, the rustic mansion and the contemporary-but-comfortable artisan ballroom were the perfect combination of traditional and modern we were looking for. Our wedding day was picture-perfect: a mild, sunny April day gave way to a gorgeous, starry night full of fun. Everything was amazing.
When we woke up the next morning, we wished we could do it all over again. It was that perfect. In fact, we’re still looking for a reason to throw another huge party!
