Picking a Wedding and Event Venue

With wedding season looming just around the corner, you may be thinking “Where do I start?” when picking out a wedding or event venue. There are hundreds to choose from in the Austin City Limits alone so it may seem a little overwhelming. Well, we’re here to help. We have worked with most of the venues in and around Austin in some form or fashion. We’ve compiled a list of a few worth checking out if you don’t know where to start. This list is by no means all inclusive and the venue you choose will really depend on budget, guest count and overall feel for your event. Another good place to see all of the venues in one place would be going to sites such as TheKnot.com or WeddingWire.com.
