Austin Venue Tour of…Manors & Mansions

If you’re a couple who love romantic vibes and historic ambiance, a mansion or manor house may be the ideal location for your wedding. Roaming gardens, vintage furniture and throw back to elegance vibe all make these venues the perfect choice. 

Charles Johnson House

A romantic main ballroom paired with an expansive and beautifully maintained grounds make the Charles Johnson House an excellent wedding venue for your ceremony and reception. You can select indoor or outdoor space for your ceremony, cocktail hour and reception based on your needs and capacity.

Beyond the beautiful look and feel of the venue, there are several perks that make this location convenient and your planning simpler. The venue has loads of complimentary parking, which your guests will appreciate. And the kitchen is large, which your caterer will appreciate. Speaking of catering, you can bring in any caterer of your choosing and as an added bonus, your own alcohol as well.

Thistlewood Manor & Gardens

If you’re looking for a picture-perfect location for your wedding reception, Thistlewood Manor & Gardens is for you. The venue has so many ideal locations for exceptional photos from scenic outdoor backdrops, to a sweeping staircase or picturesque windows. The natural beauty of the manor and grounds means you’ll need minimal decor to create an elegant wedding.

In addition to the beautiful venue, Thistlewood has their own catering onsite, so you won’t need to hunt for your own caterer. But rest assured, their catering is delicious and well-priced.

One thing we love about the venue, is that when you book your wedding at Thistlewood all the facilities are yours for the day without any competing events. Not only do you have the entire location at your disposal, you’ll have access starting at 10am. This helps smooth out the load-in and setup process for you and your wedding vendors, and also means your bridal party can settle in early.

Messina Inn

This venue seems to come straight from the Italian countryside. Don’t look for rustic here. This Wimberly wedding venue is located on the banks of the Cypress River and is elegant, charming and packed with amenities.

Messina Inn stands out as not only an ideal location for your wedding ceremony and reception, but a great venue choice for couples who want to create a destination wedding weekend. Without an onsite boutique hotel that features 11 suites and 2 cottages, you can host up to 32 for the weekend. There’s nearby shopping and activities, and with multiple onsite venue locations this place can take you from the rehearsal dinner to your last goodbyes all in one beautiful spot.
