Claire & Liam | A Rustic-chic Wedding at a Gorgeous Barn Venue
Claire and Liam were a lovable, fun and beautiful couple who enjoyed their stunning wedding day at The White Sparrow Barn in Quinlan, Texas. They really let their personalities shine through on their perfect day and married in their own home away from home, which made their day extra special.
The happy couple love to travel the USA and actually live in Ireland. When traveling around on one of their recent adventures, they discovered Quinlan and found The White Sparrow Barn. They fell in love with the place and decided to host their nuptials there, which was wonderful and we were very honored to photograph their special day.
Claire and her bridesmaids had a great time as they prepared for the big day. She was a beautiful bride and wore a stunning A-line gown, with an embellished top that had a beautiful exposed back and elegant sleeves. Her bridesmaids each wore different colored dresses, that were bright pastel colors and they all looked stunning. Claire and her bridesmaids each held a bouquet that matched their dresses, but instead of being a traditional bunch of flowers, their bouquets were made out of jewelry and amazing trinkets.
Liam relaxed in his sports jersey on the morning of the wedding to prepare for the big day. He was overwhelmed by a gift he received from his beautiful bride to be, which was a watch that he really wanted and was very surprised to receive it. The couple love Texas and the culture, so Liam wore cowboy boots and a classic Texan leather belt to complete his look on the day. He wore a stunning dark blue suit with a tie to match and looked very handsome for the day ahead.
The venue was gorgeous. They had an outdoor ceremony and the weather stayed perfect throughout the whole day. Pretty lanterns hung from the trees that marked the spot of the altar. Claire looked stunning as she walked down the aisle. She shared a big hug with her Father when he gave her away. Liam and Claire had the biggest smiles on their faces when they saw each other and their fun, goofy personalities really shone through. The ceremony was beautiful. Candles were lit and the gorgeous couple were soon pronounced husband and wife. They sealed the deal with a kiss and walked back down the aisle as Mr and Mrs! Whilst the whole family were outside after the ceremony, we captured photographs of them all by the beautiful big trees. We then took the couple away for their portraits and headed for the wooded area. Here their personalities and characters really came through. They had the biggest smiles of their faces and when we captured the intimate shots, you could see the love that they had for each other. We captured fun shots of the couple with the American flag and a football, to capture their passion for the country, which we hope will inspire them to visit again soon! The natural light bounced off the trees and helped us capture the most beautiful shots of the two of them.
We headed into the gorgeous, grand barn that was painted a brilliant shade of white. The room felt very open and really was the perfect setting for a wedding. The happy couple and their friends and family enjoyed an amazing wall of donuts, a wedding cake that had a discreet football decoration on the side, and danced into the night. The barn had an amazing balcony that looked over the venue and we captured fun shots of the bride up there, enjoying the light display from the DJ. At the end of the night, Claire was treated to a surprise fireworks displayed, organized by her wonderful husband. It was a magical moment and a fantastic way to end what had been a perfect night. But the night wasn't quite over. Once the fireworks display had ended, everyone headed over to Whataburger for some late night food, which is one of the couple's favorite places to eat when they visit the states! It was amazing to see them so excited about this and was a great way to round off the day.
