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.

Perfect Minimalist & Modern Venue
The moment we visited Prospect House, we knew we wanted to have our wedding at this venue. As a 'blank canvas' of sorts, it was the perfect size for our mid-sized gathering (~120 people), and it really fit our minimalist style, giving us the opportunity to decorate only what we wanted to, within our allotted budget. And Erich and Kathryn were absolutely amazing to work with throughout the entire process! They answered all of our (many) questions up front, allowed us to visit the venue multiple times, and were so flexible in how we decorated and used the space.Sent on 07/19/2019
I also want to note that with Texas’ unpredictable storm patterns, the fact that Prospect House has both indoor and outdoor ceremony spaces is such a stress-reliever. On the day of our wedding, we were caught off-guard by a lot of morning and afternoon sun (as we were expecting rain storms). While many vendors require setup details to be finalized within 24 hours of the ceremony, Erich's team gave us ample time to decide whether to setup the indoor or outdoor ceremony space on the day of our wedding. Within a few hours of the ceremony, we ultimately decided indoor would be safer, and the well-known bud vase wall served as a gorgeous backdrop for our nuptials. And good thing - because the rains and all the thunder came right before we said our "I Do's"!

My husband and I couldn't imagine our wedding any where else. The moment we walked into Prospect House we were in love. As soon as I walked outside to the ceremony space I knew we had to have our reception at Prospect House. It was exactly what we wanted...a modern venue with beautiful surroundings. The only negative was that with our wedding of 134 guests the dining room did get hot. My day of coordinator did tell me the air was on as low as it could go. Her back up plan included bringing out several floor fans to help circulate the air. That helped a little. Overall our guests were having so much fun dancing and hanging out in the breezeway with the typewriter poet and Photo Booth that in the end no one really noticed the A/C problem. Everyone just wanted to keep the party going. I recommend this beautiful gem to everyone!Sent on 06/20/2018

This venue is unbelievable beautiful and is a dream for creative brides with a vision! The venue owners are amazing people. They let me come see the venue whenever (which was so helpful because I was from out of town at the time) and were so communicative. They give you so much freedom when it comes to your vision. A lot of venues have a ton of rules when it comes to vendors, but they were so accommodating. The prospect house is basically a blank canvas and you get to make it your own. The sky is the limit.Sent on 07/13/2018
A beautiful venue, we always enjoy serving drinks at Prospect House!
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!
The Good people at Prosect House are real pros! The thought and care they have put into their venue is so impressive. We highly reccommend them for any big events and weddings.
