About The Union

The Union is a historic banquet hall wedding venue located in Georgetown, Texas. The facility was originally built in 1928 as a blacksmith shop, and then became a transmission shop. It has since been reclaimed and renovated, and is a completely unique event space. Every detail at The Union has been created to offer a welcoming and comfortable experience for guests. You and your loved ones can enjoy the lush garden courtyard and airstream courtyard. The venue is full of historic charm paired with modern conveniences that will help create memories that will last a lifetime.

    The Union on 8th was perfect for us. It was everything we were looking for in a venue. Cute, historical, industrial but not cold. I was in search of a venue with personality and one that spoke for itself without needing to fill it up with a bunch of decorations. I wanted something that would be the backdrop to my minimalist vibe and the Union was it. Size wise it was perfect as well. We had a small wedding of about 80 people which made it possible to have both the ceremony and dinner inside without having to flip the room. The yard they have is beautiful but I didn't want my guests (or my make up) to melt in the Texas summer heat so we only used it for cocktail hour and for those that wanted to escape the dance floor. The metal doors of the bridal suite made the perfect backdrop to our ceremony. I also was thrilled that it included the wooden chairs and farm tables which are the perfect compliment to the space. All of our guest kept commenting on how unique and cool of a place it was. Katie was super easy to work with and very accommodating of all our needs.

    The Union on Eighth had the exact look we were hoping for in regards to our wedding, the minute we saw it we knew it was for us. We wanted simplicity and to take advantage of the natural beauty within the walls of the Union. I have always been a simple person when it comes to floral arrangements and décor – this venue is so naturally stunning with its architectural features and garden feel it truly doesn’t need much. Katy was great to work with! This venue was the perfect size for our wedding – we had about 120 guests and it was easy to work the room to see and talk to everyone. The tables and chairs compliment the space very well. The details are beautiful – even in the bathroom! I highly recommend this venue – top quality and top value! If I could do this day over and over again - I would still choose The Union!
