We had a great outdoor October wedding at Mercury Hall, it was exactly what we wanted! Courtney was always very responsive when we had questions during the organization which was a big help. They have plenty of opportunities to visit the venue as we were making decisions and it was very easy to work with vendors who were familiar with the site. The weather cooperated so we got to do things as we wanted outside, and then use the whole chapel as a dance floor/photo booth. We highly recommend!Sent on 11/09/2019

Beautiful venue, tons of flexibility and best location
Mercury Hall is truly a magical place! My husband Taylor and I loved everything about our experience with Mercury Hall. Courtney is the sweetest and so easy to work with. She was very responsive, provided great recommendations and suggestions and never made me feel like my questions were silly or unnecessary. She was by far the easiest vendor we worked with. Even though we were planning our wedding from Seattle, we never felt disconnected from the experience since Courtney was so great to work with.Sent on 11/04/2019
We loved the flexibility that comes with having your wedding at Mercury Hall. There are so many different ways to set up your ceremony + reception and you can truly make the space your own. It's such a beautiful space and all of our guests were blown away by the space. We loved how you feel like you're in the hill country- but you're just south of downtown. That was key for us! We signed our contract without even seeing Mercury Hall. The space aligned with everything we were looking for and we felt really great about working with Courtney. Mercury Hall also allows quite a bit of flexibility with vendors as well which was awesome! Though our caterer, DNA, events we were truly able to make all aspects of our wedding super personal.
Can't say enough great things about Mercury Hall. :) It also seemed to be more reasonably priced than a few of the other venues we looked into briefly.
This venue offers the below options which may impact pricing:
