Mercury Hall is simply perfect! Courtney and her team were always helpful and kind during our planning process especially when we had to postpone our original wedding because of COVID-19. The outdoor space is an Austin oasis and the Hall has so much charm and character. Big or small - this venue is the best wedding venue in Austin. They made our guests feel safe and were so helpful keeping everything socially distanced. Thank you so much for all your help and making our dreams come true!!! We love this place sooo muchSent on 09/26/2020

Mercury Hall was the perfect venue for us. It gives you endless possibilities. We chose to dine and have the ceremony outside while dancing inside. It created a beautiful and romantic backdrop. They were professional and knew how to bring your ideaa to life!Sent on 06/18/2020
