About

Prospect House is a wedding ceremony and reception venue located in Austin, Texas. With distinctive architecture and style, this unique wedding venue is as attractive and one-of-a-kind as the city of Austin itself. Couples seeking a country-style Texas wedding that isn’t lacking in panache need look no further than this venue.

Facilities and Capacity
A versatile venue, Prospect House provides both indoor and outdoor facilities for the wedding of your dreams and has innumerable configurations, able to be set up according to your preferences and requirements. Enjoy an outdoor ceremony at Little Tree or at the Ceremony Lawn. The Ceremony Lawn provides stunning vistas of the surrounding acreage and tall grasses. The Little Tree offers a shadier site under the dancing foliage of wizened oak trees. The Biergarten is also available as an outdoor site for cocktail hour, post-ceremony mingling, and other intimate affairs. The Biergarten provides 1,500 square feet of outdoor space and comes with a concrete and steel bar, café tables, and access to the Main Hall.

The Main Hall is an ideal place for your Texas-chic ceremony. Boasting 3,000 square feet of space, full of windows that afford an abundance of natural sunlight, and featuring 15-foot high ceilings, this spacious all-white setting is totally configurable to your preferred color scheme or event design. The Main Hall accommodates up to 220 guests and also permits plenty of space for your band or DJ.

An additional option for indoor celebrations is the Breezeway, which is a breezy screened-in entry hall. While this reception site offers less space than the Main Hall, it provides a contemporary and breathtaking background for a memorable party, including floor-to-ceiling windows, and exposed white wood beams. This room is most ideal for an indoor ceremony or cocktail hour.

Luxury get-ready rooms are also available at this venue. Couples can enjoy private dressing rooms complete with their own powder rooms for pre-ceremony preparations. Additionally, a caterer’s kitchen is available, complete with a commercial sink, refrigerator, and freezer.

    Modern, cool, classic - great service

    When my daughter got engaged last November, we looked at about 8 venues in the greater Austin area. None of the other venues we toured had "it" - that wow factor she was looking for.

    When we came to Prospect House, she (and I) knew before we even walked in the door that it would be perfect. Prospect is simple, modern and uses all of the natural beauty and light to its best advantage. Prospect provides nice chairs, tables (rounds and rectangles) and a built in bar. The outdoor space is amazing, and the whole venue is a perfect backdrop for any type of decor. It's one of those places where it's even more striking in person than in the photos.

    All of the other vendors we lined up (photographer, videographer, catering, floral, wedding planner, DJ) raved about how Prospect House is one of their favorite venues. The owners were very intentional and thoughtful to create a place that worked ideally for customers and vendors.

    However, with Covid, we were not able to hold the wedding as planned. Even so, Prospect's owners, Kathryn and Erich, were wonderful to work with and very understanding and flexible throughout the whole situation.

    I highly recommend Prospect House - it's a beautiful venue with great service the whole way through.

    I love Prospect House!

    I love Prospect House! It is such a fabulous venue in hill country Texas and Kathryn and Erich are a delight to work with. The space itself is beautiful, modern, and minimalist. I love that the space operates as a blank slate that you can do anything with, but also that you do not have to go over the top to transform the space because of the beauty in its design and clean lines. From our first venue tour to the venue walkthrough, rehearsal, and wedding day, we had wonderful experiences working with Erich and Kathryn. They are attentive, communicative, great at providing recommendations, and overall so helpful and flexible. The ceremony frame, bud wall and weather vane are just a few of my favorite elements of the space. Not to mention that the flow of the event from the outdoor ceremony to cocktail hour in the breezeway to the reception and party in the main hall works so well. I feel so lucky that we were able to get married at Prospect House and would absolutely recommend it!

    Best in Texas

    Prospect house has been my dream venue since it opened! Eric (owner) is so incredibly nice and maintains his property like it’s his home. The bridal room is gorgeous and has plenty of space for a big bridal party. The ceremony area is so unique compared to your traditional venue. With the large field as the backdrop it will make you feel as if you’re out in the heart of the county but is only a short commute from Austin. Love love love this venue and I will recommend it to EVERYONE!

We absolutely love working at Prospect House! Not only is it easy & convenient to work at from a catering perspective given the large kitchen space, easy load-in access & potable water (a hot commodity in Texas hill country!) but also...it's simply gorgeous. We have catered several weddings at Prospect House & they were incredibly accommodating in letting us stage a styled wedding photo shoot there recently as well. As a person who has been helping others plan their weddings for 5-6 years, I will now be hosting my own at Prospect House! The juxtaposition of the thoughtful modern design set against the hill country backdrop is absolutely breathtaking & every little bit of comfort you need is on site (gorgeous dressing rooms, clever built-in bars, full sound system, fantastic rain plan option, etc.). Thanks for being awesome, Erich & Kathryn!
