Book Barr Mansion, book Molly Mulally as your coordinator, and have the best wedding you’ve ever been to.
We were originally supposed to get married at Barr Mansion in 2021 but moved our wedding due to covid and the team was incredibly considerate, helpful, and accommodating.
Barr Mansion overall as a venue and an aesthetic is an absolute dream. Getting married under the pecan tree made us feel like we were getting married under the actual tree of life (and have you seen how gorgeous it is in photos?) And there is nothing prettier than getting married in the ballroom with all of the gorgeous ivy inside the glass wall — add the edison bulb chandelier with some greenery and it is absolutely stunning.
The food at Barr Mansion is second to none. They have creative and impactful menu options that you can curate to exactly what you want. Food for our wedding was incredibly important to my husband and I and the Barr Mansion team really worked with us to make sure our options would be unique and a reflection of our love of food. On the day everything was incredible and our friends and family were very happy and well fed. Also, the desserts were awesome, most people don't love wedding cake, but Barr Mansion has very unique flavors (we had orange cake with camomile icing) and between the wedding cake and the salted pecan cheesecake bites, everyone raved about dessert.
But, by far the best thing about the Barr Mansion experience is the team. Everyone we interacted with was kind and helpful and thoughtful. However, the absolute legend of the team is the coordinator Molly Mulally. We booked the coordinator package through Barr Mansion and Molly was our coordinator — we did not utilize any outside wedding planner, and Molly really made us feel that everything was in hand. Molly had suggestions and advice as we looked to book outside vendors, and in the weeks leading up to the wedding she reached out to all of our outside vendors and coordinated logistics for the day-of.
Planning a wedding is a deeply personal and intimate thing, and I felt absolutely in the best hands with Molly as our coordinator. On the actual day I felt cool and calm because I knew Molly was taking care of everything, and because any little concern I had on the day she took into stride and was a very calming presence. In the actual planning process in the year plus leading up to our day, no questions was too small for Molly, and she normally responded to emails almost instantaneously. She had helpful suggestions and thoughts for everything, and took incredible notes. She will make sure you are on track from a planning timeline perspective and is incredibly supportive in making sure the day reflects you and your significant other. On the actual day our family could all tell what an absolutely incredibly human Molly is and commented as such to us. She is an absolute gem and an outstanding wedding coordinator through and through.
Book Barr Mansion, book Molly, and have the best wedding you’ve ever been to.
