Located in Austin, TX, Vintage Villas is a romantic waterside wedding venue. Overlooking Lake Travis, this full-service setting has an unforgettable atmosphere for celebrating your milestone. Here, you can watch the sunset over the lake while you make memories with your new spouse and loved ones. Vintage Villas was first established in 1996. Current owner Thomas Porter first joined the team here in 2000 as general manager, but his career in hospitality began while he was in college. He has years of experience in luxury hotels, and loves helping people in whatever way he can. The hotel was designed by renowned Austin architect Sinclair Black. The original owner, Texas State Senator Jack Strong, wanted to create a villa-style escape and found the ideal setting beside Lake Travis. Vintage Villas offers two event spaces for you to choose from. Each option offers floor-to-ceiling windows, filling the room with natural light and allowing you to enjoy the beauty of nature from the comfort of indoors. The vintage gazebo, with its wrought iron roof, sets the scene for a fairytale-worthy ceremony. From here, you can continue on to a cocktail hour on the patio near the old oak tree before heading into the event center. This room has dark wooden floors and high vaulted ceilings, offering a blank canvas that you can transform into your dream venue. The gazebo and event center can accommodate up to 299 guests. The arbor, meanwhile, offers a covered space for outdoor ceremonies. With its lakeside views, it has a stunning backdrop for your milestone. Weddings at the arbor can continue in the Travis Room, which welcomes up to 70 guests for a more intimate celebration. The Travis Room is filled with natural light from the floor-to-ceiling windows, while the romantic chandeliers add a touch of luxury. The in-house chef creates custom menus, so you can tailor your meal to suit your budget and personal tastes. The hotel's staff is on hand to help you every step of the way, whatever you might need. This can include taking care of setting up space. Tables, chairs, linens, and place settings are all provided by the venue. This property also features a 44-room hotel, offering a peaceful night's rest after a busy day full of festivities.
