I may be a wee bit biased when it comes to Austin. This city pulls at my heartstrings with it’s natural beauty, lovely people, and amazing food. Awhile back, we finally decided to put together a Top 10 Venue Hotlist for the Austin area, which was pretty fun as most of us live here and have lots of opinions (some differing) on the best spots in town to get hitched. So, without further adieu, here are Junebug’s favorite venues in Austin.
Sitting alongside Lake Austin, Laguna Gloria is one of Austin’s most luxurious venues. By day Laguna Gloria is actually home to the Austin Museum of Art, which I absolutely adore about Laguna Gloria.

Located downtown, The Allan House is a popular urban wedding venue. Featuring a historic mansion with a lovely courtyard ceremony/reception space, The Allan House is perfectly equipped for a stylish, urban wedding.
Situated in the eclectic South First area, Mercury Hall is perfect for the DIY couple with its elegant setting and minimal decor. Of course, those stained glass windows look good with just about anything!

Featuring an iconic Airstream, Three Points Ranch is a popular rustic venue. Couples also appreciate the minimalist landscape, including two oaks that were struck by lightening which now make up one of the most unique ceremony spaces in Austin.
Another downtown gem, Hotel Ella was actually one of the first hotels to be opened in Austin. Now, the building is an elegant space for weddings and events.

With a massive oak tree filled with twinkling lights, as well as wandering peacocks, Red Corral Ranch has definitely mastered Austin’s eclectic vibe. A noteworthy feature of this property is its circular ceremony space (they offer a more traditional space, as well). I think the idea of being surrounded (quite literally) by family and loved ones as you say “I do” is a stellar concept.
Across the street from Austin’s iconic Barton Springs, the Umlauf is named after Charles Umlauf, a world renowned sculptor. With its beautiful art garden, the Umlauf is perfect for the couple looking for a non-traditional ceremony/reception space.

Another ranch styled venue, Pecan Springs is popular for its iconic LOVE marquee and outdoor ceremony fireplace. With its big oak trees and rustic design, Pecan Springs is the epitome of the Texas Hill Country.

This venue is exactly what it sounds like, countryside french charm. ‘Ma Maison’ actually means ‘My Home’ in French, and couples feel very at home at this venue’s Provence-like villa. With ample outdoor spaces and beautiful scenery, this Austin venue, while pretty new to the wedding venue scene, was an easy choice for us Junebug girls!
