A mere 14 miles outside of Austin, this historic-mansion-turned-wedding-venue is set on nearly 20 acres of Texas land and provides the perfect backdrop for your wedding or special event. Built as a wedding gift in 1881, The Grand Lady’s ornamental woodwork and stained glass windows have been maintained and updated with fidelity to the original vision, while the furnishings embrace modern style and function. It is our mission to offer homestyle hospitality for modern couples who value intentional venue organization, a rich history, and ornate details.
