Wow! My husband and I couldn't be happier with our decision to have our wedding at Thistlewood Manor. Tricia and Leslie went above and beyond in every possible situation, and by our actual wedding day, they felt like a part of our family. They took every opportunity to "wow" us with their decor choices, willingness to talk through all of our decisions, and overall thoughtfulness and creativity. They took on every detail with so much care! Not to mention the venue is absolutely stunning, inside and out. The gardens are constantly being updated, and new things are blooming every day! And inside the mansion, the marble floors, columns, and chandeliers have such a unique, elegant look that is hard to find in the rustic Texas hill country. Their packages make it easy to plan a wedding at an excellent value, such as the ability to add on day-of coordinating, linen and glassware rentals, and catering (yum!) at very reasonable prices. My favorite item of theirs is the decor closet - we spent so much less on decorations by accessing their decor closet! I highly recommend throwing your wedding, work event, rehearsal dinner, ANYTHING at Thistlewood Manor, and I'm sure it'll be a spectacular affair!
We totally enjoyed having our wedding at Thistlewood Manor and Gardens. It was the perfect venue for a very memorable wedding. Tricia and Leslie are wonderful to work with and they are both very accommodating and helpful with idea and suggestions to match our heart's desire and preference. I would recommend Thistlewood for anyone seeking to have a romantic and elegant wedding.
I truly cannot have imagined a more perfect wedding day! Thistlewood is a gorgeous venue inside and out! Tricia and Leslie are the most amazing, kind, and talented people and they made our wedding day a breeze. We utilized them for our catering, bartending, florals, and coordinating! Tricia is not only so sweet and easy to work with, but she is also a phenomenal chef. We received endless compliments about the food and were so thankful to have some to take home after the wedding. Leslie is essentially Wonder Woman. She is on top of everything and made our day so effortless. The florals were stunning and the way Leslie was able to enhance our very unique centerpieces is beyond words. I walked into the venue the morning of my wedding and my jaw dropped. I literally felt like I was walking into a fairytale. We highly recommend Thistlewood Manor!!!!
When I was first looking at Venues, I kept coming back to Thistlewood Manor. They did almost everything in-house and it was lovely. The Manor itself is gorgeous: the detail that they have put into the manor and gardens is phenomenal. Seeing it online did not do the grounds justice. It felt like I was married in a Jane Austen novel. Tricia, who is the owner and the chef, is a pleasure to work with and was able to meet a lot of the accommodations that I needed. Leslie, the coordinator, florist, and all around wonder woman, was a pleasure to work with and helped to make sure that everything that we needed for the wedding (from the most minute detail to the biggest detail) was the best and juggling everything, answering my emails and keeping everything under control. The wedding went smoothly and the best part that I was able to ENJOY it. I don't know if a lot of brides can say that but I can, and my friends and family did, too. I wouldn't change anything about my wedding and that was in large part because of Thistlewood. If I could give them 10 stars I would. Thank you, Leslie, Tricia, and team for making my dream a reality and my wedding one of the best days of my life.
We are so glad that we chose Thistlewood Manor as our wedding ceremony & reception venue. When doing my initial research, I thought the packages offered by Thistlewood would for sure be out of budget for us, but I found them to be very fairly priced. Leslie & Tricia were both so helpful and our top three comments from guests were: wonderful food, awesome cocktails, and a beautiful venue. Don't hesitate to check them out!!
Incredible experience!There are not even words to express how perfect our wedding was at Thistlewwod Manor. Our wedding was on September 18th, 2015, and it was everything we could have ever hoped for.
We had our wedding ceremony and reception at Thistlewood in October 2017. It was a magical experience! Leslie and Tricia were wonderful, and they helped us so much every step of the way, from the initial meeting all the way through the wedding itself. Tricia exudes warmth and is also a wonderful chef to boot, having prepared the delicious dinner for us and our guests. Leslie assisted us as our wedding planner and our day-of coordinator. She was incredibly professional and gave us great guidance to make our wedding wonderful, helping us with décor decisions and choosing certain vendors. We also asked Leslie to be our florist, and her floral arrangements were so beautiful! Thistlewood is so great because they provide so many excellent services beyond being a venue. Both Tricia and Leslie were responsive to our emails and communicated very well. They really made us feel like they cared and wanted our day to be special. I can't recommend Tricia and Leslie (and the entire Thistlewood family) enough!
My son and fiance got married at Thistlewood Manor. It is an outstanding venue. Our wedding coordinator was wonderful and took care of every little detail. It is an elegant setting and the food was excellent. I would highly recommend this venue to any bride.
Our wedding at at Thistlewood Manor was perfect. Tricia and Leslie were so gracious and helpful. They not only set up a gorgeous bridal brunch for the maids and ladies of the family, but also broke that down and turned the venue into a DREAM for the wedding. The team at Thistlewood really goes above and beyond for their clients. Corey and I (and our circus) were so well taken care of - from the start of the process to the very end. This is a one stop shop - the venue is beautiful, they can cater your event, help with flowers and decorations, as well as day-of coordination. They are also open to allowing outside vendors in if you prefer. I highly recommend this team and their venue.
Thistlewood was the perfect venue for my husband and I. We planned our wedding for a year and a half and Leslie and Tricia helped us every step of the way. They reply very quickly, answer any question you have, and work hard to make your dream come true. Their food is outstanding and the cocktails can be made to one of a kind! The grounds of the venue are truley stunning. Beautiful flowers, trees, and of course a gran fountain. One of my husbands favorites things is that they had a grooms suite just as nice as the brides to get ready in. The bridal suite was perfect for getting ready, my girls and I had mimosas with homemade muffins, brie with a berry compote and fresh fruit. Leslie, the coordinator, took my dream of a romantic upscale wedding to a reality. One of the main aspects of the venue I fell in love with was the grand staircase. I wanted to make this extra special since I was walking down to my future husband on it. We decided to cover the side of the staircase in garland, roses and hydrangeas. I could go on and on about how PERFECT this venue is, but y'all should just go visit it yourself and fall in love like my husband and I did.
The staff at Thistlewood were absolutely great to work with. The facilities are everything they appear to be. Everything worked fantastic for our daughter's wedding last April. Strongly recommend them!
I can't imagine how our day would have gone without Leslie's attention to detail and knowledge and timeliness! She was great, and Thistlewood was beautiful. We and our guests all had a fantastic day!
We were absolutely thrilled with our experience at Thistlewood Manor! The staff there was phenomenal and really went above and beyond to make our wedding day incredibly special. Leslie deserves 5 stars all on her own. She is a wedding machine that just goes and goes!! I was completely blown away by how hard she worked. I cannot thank her enough for everything that she did. Tricia is an amazing chef and one of the most kind people that we had the honor of meeting. Her venue and the way she runs her business make your life so much simpler during this stressful time. Thank you so much ladies!!!
I have nothing but high praise for Thistlewood Manor! Not only is the venue itself breathtaking, but everyone there is so helpful and truly makes dream weddings happen! This was the first and last venue I looked at because I was in love. Thank you so much for making my wedding day perfect!
Thistle wood is stunning and handled every detail of our day perfectly. I had no worries and was able to completely enjoy everything.
I cannot recommend Thistlewood highly enough!!! It is an absolutely gorgeous venue and the owner, Tricia, was a dream to work with. Tricia was SO helpful and she, along with her awesome team, ensured that my wedding went off without a hitch. The bridal suite is perfect for brides and bridesmaids to get ready, we had a blast there during the day of the wedding. This venue is truly incredible!
Beautiful facility and great staff! My husband and family loved everything about our wedding! Thank you!
After an extensive search for venues in the Austin area, I discovered Thistlewood Manor just south in Kyle. I was looking for a venue with a very elegant, romantic feel, and this was THE MOST beautiful one I found. The bridal room to get ready provides an absolutely gorgeous backdrop for photos with the furniture and décor, and guests commented all night on the stunning interior space and outdoor area with the reflection pool and gardens. The spiral staircase inside allowed for a dramatic grand entrance and the chandeliers and dance floor in the center are very classy. The owner, Tricia, was very helpful during the planning process with suggestions for customizing a bar package for us, table layout ideas, etc. I was also extremely impressed with her use of a computer program for clients to use to create a personalized layout of her venue to scale and share with all other contracted vendors. Highly, highly recommended!
Thistlewood is a beautiful venue and a great option as a place to get married! I got married here on May 24, the day right after really bad rain and flooding happened in the area. I miraculously was still able to have my dream garden wedding and all of my vendors had no problem getting to the venue. All of our guests (a little over 100) were able to fit on the patio area and the bridal party stood on the grass. It was a beautiful setup and the big backyard has plenty of other ceremony arrangement options! Then our guests went inside for the reception. It was so nice to have all of the food prepared onsite and I received so many compliments on how good it tasted! My husband and I were invited to Thistlewood for a private food tasting before the wedding to pick out our menu. Tricia and her staff can make any dish you want! Thistlewood also has really nice bride and groom areas to get ready and spend the day in. The grand staircase also made a dramatic entrance for me and my husband! So many great things to say about this place, I highly recommend getting married here!

I love serving. Generally, I'm in the background making sure the food is great or the guests are served, all is beautiful, organizing, etc. My background is varied with degrees in Accounting, Culinary Arts and Wedding Planning Certificate. My experience also includes being a waiter, prep cook, caterer, and planning/coordinating weddings and more. These opportunities are part of the amazing path that God has led me to open Thistlewood Manor. The reward is seeing happy people around “my table.” Thistlewood Manor is “my table.” It is my pleasure to serve you and help you make your day wonderful
