Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • It's right in Austin, but feels a world away. The rustic-eclectic Studio, Cottage House, and Loft are connected by flagstone pathways under a canopy of live oaks, creating an environment so peaceful you'd never guess you're in an urban center.
  • There are so many great ways to use the space. Ceremonies can be held beneath the trees, followed by cocktails and dinner by the glow of bistro lights strung between the branches. The Studio's bamboo floor is ideal for dancing, and The Loft makes a perfect dressing area or private post-ceremony getaway.
  • Your rental fee supports the Amala Foundation, whose programs offer leadership training and culturally rich volunteer experiences for young people, both locally and around the world.
