The Grand Lady team is composed of three families. We are architects, designers, and friends on a mission to create a meaningful space, just outside our city, where you can celebrate your wedding day in a way that matters deeply to you.
Originally located in Bartlett, Texas, the Grand Lady later moved to her current home in Manor, Texas just 14 miles east of Austin, where she now rests on nearly 20 acres of land.
In 1912, to celebrate the birth of their first son, the family redesigned the Victorian-style home to its current Colonial style. They added more space, a second floor, and two wraparound porches while keeping touches of the original in the ornamental woodwork and stained glass windows.
These rich details have been maintained throughout the past century, but we have updated the furnishings to embrace a modern style and function.
Her Modern Updates
With The Grand Lady, we provide space for everything you need on your wedding day so that you do not have to bounce from hotel to salon to church to party. We offer a 24-hour rental so that you can enjoy the space for a full day. This includes 13 hours of rental with guests and a room for an overnight stay for the newlyweds.
The venue has multiple options for the ceremony and reception, and it can accommodate both small and large events. With our focus on event flexibility and open mindedness, we will build an event designed for your unique needs.
While other venues may try to box you into pre-designed packages, pricing, and vendor requirements, we meet you where you are and start building from there.
