My husband and I waited six years before we finally tied the knot. And looking back just a couple of weeks after we did, we can't imagine why we didn't do it sooner ... but I think part of it was we just needed to find the right people to work with.
We've always wanted a small wedding and I'd always imagined an outdoor setting. But we love Palm Door—it is, as they say, a blank canvas and we were able to do so much with it.
Mariah is a joy to work with, not only did she understand what we wanted, she was able to put us in contact with our other vendors who made our day so much more than we could have ever imagined. She also knows how to put everyone at ease, which couldn't be more welcomed on a day when your nerves are kickin!
Since we knew we wanted a small wedding, Mariah and the team at Bird Dog Wedding were able to figure out a way for us to have it outside and it was GORGEOUS!!!! There were about 70 guests, so we had two rows of chairs for immediate family and those with special needs, while the rest of our friends and family stood just behind them and I have to say, it helped give the super relaxed feeling we were going for, while also remaining intimate. It was truly perfect. I wish I could post photos so you all could see it!
And inside was just as gorgeous as outside. We went with a family-style layout. It lent itself to the bohemian feel we were going for. Which brings me back to Mariah, we couldn't have done any of this without her help and expertise. She helped us plan everything from the layout to helping with our timeline. She also put us in contact with the team that helped make our day so unbelievable.
I really can't describe a more perfect wedding day and it made us realize why we'd waited so long. It was to get married here, at Palm Door—in the heart of my favorite city in the world. We are still in awe of just how beautiful everything was and will recommend this venue to anyone who wants to get married in Austin!!!

I've been involved in many events at Palm Door and have such a great experience each time! The space is a beautiful blank canvas to make your own. The ceiling has a ton of beams to hang your fun decor from. Mariah at Palm Door is also amazing! She's very helpful, informative, and responsive - overall excellent customer service. Just love working with her! You are in good hands with Mariah. Looking forward to my next event there!

We had our wedding here in May and it was awesome. The space was exactly what we were looking for and Mariah and the rest of the staff were extremely easy to work with.
I cannot recommend this place enough!

I can't say enough about the crew @ Palm Door. I happened upon it by accident and once I visited the space and spoke with Mariah, I knew this was the place for us! From start to finish, everything was a breeze. Booking Palm Door led to booking the caterer, Pink Avocado, which shares a space in the same building. From there, literally everything else fell into place from hair + makeup to photographer and ultimately our officiant. It was a perfect event and a perfect day. My guests are still commenting on how wonderful the venue was. Adorable, sweet, comfortable and happy - these are just some of the words used to describe the space. I couldn't imagine my wedding any other way.

This venue was absolutely amazing! From the moment we went to take a look at the place, we fell it love. It has such a classy, Austin, laid back and sweet feeling. The people that work here are amazing and helping with questions right up until a couple days through. They worked with all of our needs so easily, very laid back and very professional. The place is so beautiful and people raved about the wedding and the venue. I would highly highly recommend this place!

The palm door was great! I was so happy with how everything turned out and I heard rave reviews from our guests. I love the vintage space and feel, and the service was exceptional. They were all incredibly helpful, easy to work and attentive. Thank you for everything!

We loved this venue! It was reasonably priced, beautiful, laid back, and the people were lovely! We had a marvelous time and I would host another event there in a heartbeat.

The Palm Door was the perfect venue for us! It was the first and easiest choice we made in the wedding planning process. Joy was great to work with. We traded emails for months and she answered all of my questions. Everything came together great. Our friends and family loved the atmosphere. We were very pleased with our choice. I would definitely recommend the Palm Door to those looking for a unique venue downtown for a reasonable price.

Great venue for our 100 person wedding! They were easy to work with, we had the venue for 10 hours, a wedding coordinator was included in the contract, etc. Small, beautiful place for our ceremony and reception!
Hip, Downtown Urban Space
Originally built in 1936 as a Victorian cabinet makers studio, it has also housed Austin Theatrical Supply Company & City Grill, and now the Palm Door. A 3,000 square foot main loft space with a beautiful wooden deck that looks over Waller Creek. Its a hidden Austin gem, great for weddings!
