This beautiful home on Lake Austin was overflowing with warmth and love as Morgan and Will tied the knot on July 25th, 2015. The Clearly Classy Team was honored to be a part of such a memorable day, and excited by the task of transforming this elegant Austin home into an original venue of their own – we were blown away by the glamor of the end result!

Morgan could easily be confused with a princess in a castle by the looks of these photos, which were so magically captured by Jeff Loftin. Her dress encompassed all things princess! The flattering, waste-cinching bodice featured intricate flower appliqués that begged for a closer look. From there, the dress flowed into a whimsical skirt made of tulle! Her veil paired nicely with her blonde locks that were twisted into a low bun, which complimented the gown perfectly!
Morgan looks like she belongs in each of these photos - her princess cut gown complemented the fairytail-esque components of this tasteful house flawlessly!
The groomsmen were caught calming nerves by goofing around, playing pool, and sneaking in a few pre-ceremony sips! They were such an easygoing group of guys, full of energy and playfulness. We love how their attire reflected this! Keeping things casual, the groom stood out being the only one with a jacket - however, they each showed uniformity and bits of their quirkiness by rocking the blush colored bow-ties.
The morning passed quickly and it was soon time for the big event! Guests were speechless as they watched Morgan gracefully approach the altar. The father of the groom, Mark Barnes, conducted the ceremony. This made it twice as special as he shared personal, touching stories about the couple standing before him.
Do you know anyone whose fun-loving energy and laughter is contagious? We felt this way about Morgan and Will's wedding party! You couldn't help but be entertained yourself while watching this tight-knit group continually have fun and goof off!
After the ceremony ended, the guests moved to the backyard to celebrate and were filled with admiration upon arrival. Morgan and Will's vision was executed perfectly and the lake view was absolutely stunning! Chandeliers that hung from the trees enhanced and transformed the outdoor space into an elegant atmosphere, thanks to World Audio & Lights! Floral table runners, courtesy of Flora Fetish, were a spectacular and unique touch! The evergreen leaves and blush roses paired perfectly with the long dark wooden tables.
After taking time to admire the reception space, guests proceeded to find a drink and fill their empty stomachs! Crave Catering impressed us once again with foods from all around the world including a Mediterranean Station, Far East Fusion Station, and Street Taco Station.
No guests were going hungry, as there was a little something for everyone at this wedding! Brave guests excited their palette by making their rounds and trying different cuisines at each table. We loved the concept of long, family-style tables encouraging guests to get to know each other and open-up over a delicious meal.
Crave also included their amazing staff to assist with bartending. The mojitos and sangrias were the perfect addition to the exhilarating music playing from the deck, rocking out by Texas Pro DJ. If guests became famished while dancing, they were able to restore energy by snacking on a variety of cake balls - a modern twist on the traditional wedding cake, hand-crafted by Austin Cake Ball.
As the sun set over the gorgeous lake view, the atmosphere grew more intimate. Floating candles in the pool and twinkling lights strung in the trees, enhanced the ambience and transformed the backyard into a romantic atmosphere. With the perfect summer breeze and the to-die-for lake view, not a single guest (nor vendor) wanted this night to end! 😉
The newlyweds and their guests enjoyed themselves until the very end! Morgan and Will finished the night by gracefully making their way through a tunnel of sparklers! Clearly Classy was honored to be a part of such a significant day, and wishes the couple joy, love, and happiness as they begin your new life together!
Best wishes to you, Morgan and Will! Your wedding day has come and gone, but may your love grow forever!
