There are so many great venues to have a wedding in Austin. Here are five noteworthy wedding ceremony venues.
Guests happily munched on a family-style dinner by Royal Fig Catering and enjoyed cake prepared by Simon Lee Bakery, which tasted just as great as it looked. It was nothing but a party for the rest of the night, with the bride and groom dancing away to music by Greenbelt DJ with their guests. Special thanks to ILD Lighting for illuminating the night with festoon lights. Becky from Pearl Events pulled it all together.

Take your wedding guests to Tuscany. Stand on this side of the archway and you’re on a limestone parking lot on a plateau that rises 900 feet above Austin. Step through that archway and you’re in Tuscany. Water falls to your left. Massive stone steps lead across a pool that is constantly changing color. Fire leaps atop the surface. Step through those tall, double doors. Old wooden shutters and windowboxes adorn windows high on the second floor. Grapevines twist through a huge iron chandelier. An overhead catwalk leads to a dazzling art gallery.
Chapel Dulcinea is a romantic, open-air Wedding Chapel located on the Wizard Academy campus. Donations continue to make it possible for the owners to offer the Chapel at no charge.
Barr Mansion is a family-owned business that has been in Austin for over 20 years. Get married in the intimate rose garden or the elegant Artisan Ballroom, of which the entire front is 40 feet of glass. Groups up to 75 can fit in the Victorian mansion, which was built in 1898 and features gingerbread porches.
The Inn at Rose Hall
This rustic outdoor wedding venue in South Austin was voted as a Best of Weddings 2008/2009 pick by The Knot, a leading wedding Web site. The venue is essentially a ranch home with a laid-back Hill Country vibe, and it features a rolling green lawn adorned with 100-year-old oak trees. After the ceremony, you can dance and eat either under the covered veranda or inside the roomy home. You can also spend your first evening as a married couple together in the bridal suite. You can also rent the home for the full weekend if you have guests in town, as it has five large bedrooms and three bathrooms. This is a great place if you want a wedding under the stars!
