a DREAM venue and staff!
Our wedding ceremony and reception at the Driskill were a dream! Not only is the Driskill one of the most historic, beautiful and classy venues in Austin, but also home to the best staff and top notch customer service. Katie and Kristin were professional, responsive, creative, kind and so easy to work with. We wanted a southern menu and Katie helped us create an off-the-menu plated dinner with duck fat fried chicken! Our guests raved about the food! And, our signature cocktail was such a hit! Katie kept us updated on our room block list, and answered any and every question we had (and we had a lot) during the planning process! The day of the wedding everything went so smoothly and the staff exceeded our expectations with their kindness and service! Our attendant made sure our drinks were never empty and we had plenty of water. We are so thankful we chose the Driskill for our wedding and would HIGHLY RECOMMEND it!Sent on 08/17/2019

We planned a small and intimate ceremony in 5 weeks with the help of Kristin and the Driskill crew! Every single moment was wonderful and we truly could not have done it without their help!Sent on 11/19/2017

Having our New Year's Eve wedding at The Driskill was one of the best decisions we have ever made! Living in Austin, we always knew of The Driskill's history - so when we got engaged, we thought we should check it out for a venue. Well, once you see the Mez Ballroom - you won't want to look elsewhere! There are also so many other rooms that come with the Driskill wedding package - including 5 suites the night of your wedding! We had a large wedding - 220 guests - and right from the start, The Driskill was amazing. I had the opportunity to work with both Hannah the first 6 months of the year and then Kristin the last 6 months of the year to help with planning. Both were top notch! Our wedding was definitely expensive and my parents had some questions along the way - every time we reached out to Kristin, she would respond within a few hours (even on her days off)!
The entire weekend of our wedding was magical - Kristin and the ENTIRE staff at the Driskill went above and beyond for all of our families/friends coming into town. The day of our wedding, the staff made me feel like a princess. I always had a drink in my hand, Kristin helped me fix my dress when anything went wrong, and they made our wedding party feel so at ease. You really don't even need a wedding coordinator (if you're organized like my mom was) because the staff here is incredible.
I cannot recommend The Driskill enough as a wedding venue - small, medium, large weddings - it's the best! Thank you for everything Kristin and team!Sent on 01/03/2018
