We’re getting married at St. Austin and having the reception at the UT Alumni Center.
As for the timing of Catholic ceremonies, we also decided to go for the 2pm service. Our cocktail hour starts at 6:30, giving our guests time off between the ceremony and reception. We’re going to book some bowling lanes at the alley in the UT Union, and our block of rooms is at the AT&T Center, which is in between the two locations. I figure that since we’ll be on campus, our guests can walk around easily! I’m planning on giving them a list of recommended places (museums, shops, etc) where they can spend some time.

We had our wedding at Kali-Kate, which is right by Chapel Dulcinea. I don’t think they’ve updated their website since the 80s, but I promise you it’s gorgeous in person! We had our rehearsal dinner (because I am a glutton for punishment, and needed to have two hands-on events in one weekend) at Mayfield Park. I am pretty sure it’s Austin’s best-kept secret; it is the way cheaper, much less restrictive, but slightly less lovely (but with peacocks!) version of Laguna Gloria. It’s actually right next door to Laguna Gloria, which I loved, but couldn’t justify price wise. Also, I wanted to be able to bring in our own alcohol and pick a caterer of choice. The rental fee? $1,000 for more or less the whole day. The only downside– acoustic music only. But we found a great acoustic band, so it was awesome!

I got married at Star Hill Ranch. Amaaaazing! The owner is great to work with. Very accomodating and helpful! Plus, he let us set up on Friday (the day before our wedding) since there was no event that day!

We just booked PEcan Springs Ranch in Oak Hill (just past the zoo). Its a newer venue, open about a year and they are amazing and the place is beautiful for a ranch style or vintage shabby chic look
