About seven years after meeting through a mutual friend (and groomsman), Becky Quach and Derek Masar made things official and got married. Their October 25, 2013, event in Austin was a destination wedding (the lovebirds reside in San Diego, where she’s an interior designer and he owns a visual-arts production company) and a fully DIY affair.
The modern celebration had a little Art Deco flair and plenty of personalized touches. The Austin locale was one such detail; the bride grew up visiting the city. The venue was another, as the bride and groom instantly fell in love with it. Barr Mansion has a history dating back to the late 1800s, beautiful grounds, and a modern glass-fronted ballroom that offered the ideal setting for their nuptials.
