The Inside Scoop
FROM THE KNOT EDITORS
The First Look
Located in the picturesque countryside just west of Austin, Camp Lucy is a family-owned event center on a former ranch in Texas Hill County. Fusing rustic charm with tasteful elegance, the facility offers a number of on-site venues to complement the entire wedding experience, from the rehearsal to a stunning country chapel ceremony to a memorable reception.
Ian’s Chapel is a beautiful spot with an English cottage feel. The stone bell tower faces manicured green lawns and lusciously landscaped gardens. A winding path leads to the chapel, which is surrounded by mature oak trees. Inside, the chapel has three-story columns and ornate beams stretching across the vaulted ceilings and the alter has an arch of simple yet elegant stonework as a backdrop. It has a capacity of over 300 guests.
For couples who wish to wed outside rather than in the chapel, the lawns provide a stunning setting. There is ample space for guests to watch an outdoor ceremony in folding garden chairs, arranged in theater-style seating.
Whit’s Inn on the Creek offers a uniquely pastoral dining setting that’s ideal for both reception dinners and wedding banquets. This repurposed barn is set near the creek and has an intricate brick floor, picture windows and wood walls. Up to 100 guests can fit comfortably in this space for a dinner. There’s a bar area, as well as private suites for the bride and groom. There’s also an outdoor deck couples may use, which can, likewise, serve as an alternate ceremony spot.
Sacred Oaks is a picturesque location that provides a ceremony and reception site. Couples can say “I do” beneath a canopy of ancient oak trees and then celebrate in the site’s great hall. The reception space has a built-in bar, custom lighting and private suites for both the bride and groom. More than 300 guests can be accommodated at this venue.
