Now offering elopements & micro weddings and $1000 of May - Aug 2021 dates!
Hidden on the Eastern outskirts of Austin, just 30 minutes from East 6th St and Austin Bergstrom Airport, the Grand Lady of Austin will begin hosting weddings in Spring 2020 and will feature a modern 250+ person event space in Fall of 2020. Set on 20 acres of Oak Trees “The Grand Lady” is a mansion built in 1881 in Bartlett, Texas as a wedding present for the Waltons. Cared for by various families through each phase of her life, she serves as a grand backdrop for wedding celebrations that embrace modern traditions of love, friendship and family.
A small group of local architects and friends began the revival and transformation of the Grand Lady and her setting in 2018. We sought to create a unique and inspired space, just outside our city, built to commemorate the poignant, meaningful celebrations of love that come with a wedding.
There are few moments in one’s life in which we are capable of summoning hundreds of people who care for us, to celebrate our commitment to the one person who has captured our heart. A wedding is a unique moment where the intimacy of love for one person collides with an entire room’s love for two people. It’s a moment of spectacular humanity that celebrates the gifts of partnership, family and friendship.
We believe the place where this happens matters deeply.

A hidden gem right outside of Austin
The Grand Lady is a truly special place. The mansion has so much character and has been beautifully restored. It's tucked back in an oak grove and is so quaint and romantic. The renderings for the new, modern wedding spaces going in on the property are also fantastic. I recently put together a styled wedding shoot at The Grand Lady and it photographs so vividly. Katie was lovely to work with as well. This venue is an absolute gem!Sent on 10/09/2020

Beautiful venue with historical character
Katie and Sean are an absolute delight to work with. My husband and I were the first "large" wedding to be held at the Grand Lady, and Katie and Sean worked tirelessly to make sure the venue was in top form for our day. We chose the Grand Lady because of its unique history, beautiful scenery, and ability to "customize" what our day could look like. Everyone had a phenomenal time, and the day was even better than what we could have imagined. Katie and Sean's work ethic, kindness, and generosity set them apart from other venues, and we cannot recommend the Grand Lady more highly.Sent on 03/07/2021
