The Barr Mansion is likely the most popular and well known wedding venue in Austin. It has been published on many blogs as the best of the best and is definitely one of our favorites. With many ceremony location options and a unique glass barn for the reception it hosts many photographic opportunities. The mansion itself is used for the getting ready portion of the day, although the girls usually opt to get their hair and makeup done off site. There are multiple locations for a ceremony on site and with a large ballroom that can be used as a “plan B” in case of rain. The venue can accommodate up to 400 people inside and outside and is located in a neighborhood 15 minutes from downtown Austin. Check out more Austin Wedding Venues here.
