The most perfect and intimate venue

My wife and I got married in October 22'. As we searched for a venue we had a few "must haves" this included, trees and a lot of greenery, a "backyard" feel, and something affordable. When we found the Sanctuary, we were sold. The Sanctuary Event Space is beautiful with huge trees, lots of greenery, and the perfect "cottage home" feel. We had around 45 guests at our wedding and the one compliment we hear all night was how fun, beautiful and unique the venue was. The staff was amazing, communicative, helpful and did everything to help us get what we needed before our wedding day (measurements, vendors, suggestions on setup etc. ) FYI there are so many amenities for your big day, they have table and chairs, they have kitchen supplies and even dishware. The upstairs loft to get ready is perfect for a bridal party (or in our case two). The cottage we used for an entry table and later in the night family member got cozy and chatted inside. The studio we used for the reception as the dance floor and where we cut our cake. We could not imagine a more beautiful venue: just see for yourself! (PHOTOGRAPHY BY: Leah Muse Photography)

Great Venue

This venue was the best option we could find in Austin. The price, location, amenities and facilities were perfect. The purpose behind the foundation is very noble and besides getting married you’re also helping others.

Stunning location!

Stunning space! The Sanctuary is a serene and beautiful setting for your special day. The outside area where ceremony and dinner typically take place is surrounded by greenery and a beautiful Oak tree. The dance floor is a perfect size for a 60-100 person wedding. The Sanctuary is a great location for out-of-town guests to get to from hotels in Austin. Jessica was great to work with throughout the entire process.

One consideration - The venue cost is appealing. And Sunday weddings there are even less expensive. But keep in mind you have to bring in all the vendors, including linens, tables, chairs, and tent if needed. Rentals like chairs and tables often have a higher delivery fee for Sunday deliveries/setups. In our case we paid $800 for the delivery fees alone on a Sunday! Please note that the Sanctuary does have an option to leave rental items on site overnight if they are neatly stacked at the ceremony site. This Monday pick-up option could reduce the fees for Sunday wedding.
