    Martha Stewart — the reigning doyenne of all things lifestyle — can design a floral arrangement that could bring us to tears. Now, the media mogul's bridal site, Martha Stewart Weddings, is here to serve up some seriously mood-lifting wedding inspiration, whether you're about to walk down the aisle or not.
    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.
