Jason and Alyssa were married on October 31, 2009. Yep. Halloween. It's one of Alyssa's favorite days, and she wanted to incorporate some Halloween fun into their wedding ... but not go overboard. So she turned to the talented teams at Verbena Floral Design and Keely Thorne Events to help her put a whimsical twist on tradition!
Before we move on to the story, remember ~ you can see all the images from the day in SMP's photo gallery!
Alyssa & Jason also really wanted to forgo a traditional ceremony and so they they opted for a cocktail hour as guests arrived at the beautiful Barr Mansion. The guests were able to enjoy the grounds just before sunset. Then, once the sun was setting, bells on top of the Artisan Ballroom sounded ~ inviting guests to the East Lawn of the house for the ceremony. The ceremony took place on the exquisite porch of the home while 200 guests watched from the lawn just below.
Marrying the couple was long time family friend, Texas Supreme Court Justice Dale Wainwright.
The very talented team at Verbena Floral Design created this fantastic moss wall that was used as a photo backdrop. Too pretty!
Halloween-inspired wedding details ...
And just one more shot of Alyssa's killer Louboutin's ...
