Our Favorite Industrial Austin Wedding Venues

Whether it’s exposed brick walls, unique ceiling structures or the uniqueness of a clean open space, there is nothing more authentically beautiful than an industrial wedding venue. We’ve compiled 9 of our favorite industrial wedding venues to inspire our Southern brides looking to modernize their Texas roots. Take a look!

800 Congress

With the capacity to accommodate up to 700 guests, 800 Congress is a venue for any bride looking to occupy decorate quite the open space. This gorgeous venue is home to exposed brick, polished concrete floors and amazing floor-to-ceiling retractable doors that open to an expansive patio, making it difficult for brides to resist this venue’s urban charm – not to mention its breathtaking views of Paramount Theatre and The Capitol.

One Eleven East

Built in 1983, One Eleven East has been thoughtfully restored to cultivate its original architectural details while also subtly modernizing its downtown charm. We see brides drawn to the clean white-brick walls, 15-foot ceilings, pinewood floors and beautifully arched windows that lead to the property’s private outdoor courtyard.

Brazos Hall

Brazos Hall is a turn-of-the-century warehouse building at the corner of 4th and Brazos. Converted from a 1900’s grain mill into an elegant mixed-use event venue with restored long-leaf pine floors, brick walls and wood rafters, Brazos Hall is a venue unlike any other in the heart of downtown Austin’s hotel district. In addition to the 8,400 square feet of open space in the Main Hall that highlights the venue’s industrial past, Brazos Hall offers a 3,500 square foot rooftop deck with downtown views.

Holding up to 104 people this is the perfect space for an intimate boutique wedding.

Rock Rose Hall

Rock Rose is Uptown’s destination for up late – bringing the best of Austin’s weird to your far out – all on one street. Featuring an art-infused streetscape surrounded by unexpected discoveries and bustling with visitors, Rock Rose will offer the charm and energy of South Congress, East Austin or the Warehouse District, with the added benefits of easy access and plentiful parking.

Deep Eddy Vodka Tasting Room

Nestled in the Hill Country just 20 minutes outside of Austin is The Deep Eddy Vodka Tasting Room – perfect for bridal showers, rehearsal dinners, ceremonies and receptions. With a covered outdoor patio and gorgeous interior, it is a one of a kind venue for all your wedding events!

The Grove

The Grove is a brand new, distinctive venue centrally located in downtown Round Rock just blocks from fine hotels, one of a kind restaurants and entertainment. Three brilliant spaces are yours to mold into a one of a kind event; the deck winds through the majestic oak trees, the terrace stretches along the wide clear waters of Brushy Creek and a grand open space inside the mid-century inspired building are waiting for your personal touch.

Garden Party Brunch Wedding by Brock + Co. Events

Photos by SMS Photography

Newlyweds Annah and Cody describe their wedding as a true fairytale, and after seeing all the gorgeousness, we just have to agree! The team at Brock + Co. Events did an amazing job bringing the couple’s dream of a brunch garden party wedding to life. As guests arrived they received adorable welcome boxes with tons of treats including yummy Fluff Meringues. Botanical No. 9 adorned the venue with beautiful florals in eye-popping shades of pink, and guests mingled amidst the “bubbles bar” which was (not surprisingly!) a huge hit! Whim Hospitality provided the perfect rentals for the occasion. The incredible wedding cake from Simon Lee Bakery was five tiers iced in white and adorned with pale pink flowers and gold details including the couple’s crest in the middle.  The sweet couple registered and exchanged rings from Austin staple The Menagerie. To see more from this exclusive Vows that Wow wedding, pick up the Spring/Summer 2017 issue of Brides of Austin and flip to page 50. Cheers to Annah and Cody!

Photos by Gloria Goode Photography

This artful romance styled shoot captured by Gloria Goode Photography at the Blanton Museum of Art has us swooning with fresh inspiration from the team at House of Margot Blair. Embrace your inner artist as you peruse each lovely detail. The chic table setting was topped with colorful drinkware from Loot Vintage Rentals paired with crisp white dinnerware and stone grey linens from Marquee Event Group. The place settings featured watercolor calligraphy place cards by Paper Place that paired beautifully with the floral invitation suite. Simply Delicious Custom Cakes created the show-stopping, four-tier wedding cake topped by a single, red sugar flower – it’s almost too pretty to eat! The model bride was stunning in her modern, long-sleeved gown from Unbridaled and luxe curls to match from Pepper Pastor. We’re crushing over her flawless makeup by Cren De Le Cren, Beauty By Katherine Crenshaw – the red lips added the perfect complement to her lush flower crown handcrafted by House of Margot Blair. Be sure to grab a copy of the new Brides of Austin Spring/Summer 2017 issue for more creative inspiration. Cheers to this amazingly talented team!
