Hidden on the Eastern outskirts of Austin, just 30 minutes from East 6th St and Austin Bergstrom Airport, the Grand Lady of Austin will begin hosting weddings in Spring 2020 and will feature a modern 250+ person event space in Spring 2021. Set on 20 acres of Oak Trees “The Grand Lady” is a mansion built in 1881 in Bartlett, Texas as a wedding present for the Waltons. Cared for by various families through each phase of her life, she serves as a grand backdrop for wedding celebrations that embrace modern traditions of love, friendship and family. A small group of local architects and friends began the revival and transformation of the Grand Lady and her setting in 2018. We sought to create a unique and inspired space, just outside our city, built to commemorate the poignant, meaningful celebrations of love that come with a wedding. There are few moments in one’s life in which we are capable of summoning hundreds of people who care for us, to celebrate our commitment to the one person who has captured our heart. A wedding is a unique moment where the intimacy of love for one person collides with an entire room’s love for two people. It’s a moment of spectacular humanity that celebrates the gifts of partnership, family and friendship. We believe the place where this happens matters deeply.
