If you are envisioning an extraordinary and stylish wedding hosted in a simple yet dramatic venue, one with both stunning modern architecture indoors and beautifully expansive natural outdoor backdrops, Prospect House is the perfect wedding venue for you.
About Prospect House
Located on a private 20-acre Hill Country site in Dripping Springs, Texas, Prospect House is only a twenty-five minute drive from downtown Austin. Designed by award-winning Texas architect Max Levy, Prospect House is a modern event space specifically intended to host weddings, receptions, and other special events. Its striking architecture set amongst the hill country landscape includes several indoor and outdoor spaces for maximum flexibility. The area surrounding Prospect House was designed by Ten Eyck Landscape Architects and features native prairie grasses and trees, integrating the clean-lined architecture and hardscapes. This gallery-like event space provides abundant natural lighting, a simple material palette, and multiple outdoor sites designed to take advantage of the Texas Country views.
Unlike many other wedding venues, Prospect House was specifically designed with special events in mind, so that the configuration of various interior and exterior spaces flow smoothly together and provide maximum flexibility for guests to truly create the wedding of their dreams.
Main Hall: Prospect House’s Main Hall is a 3,000 square foot air conditioned space flooded with natural lighting, 15 foot tall ceilings, built-in banquet seating, direct access to the Biergarten outside, and capacity for up to 220 seated guests. The Main Hall also features enough room for a band and DJ or dance party after the ceremony.
Breezeway: This 2,000 square foot covered, screened-in entry hall features exposed framing and breathtaking views of the main outdoor ceremony space. The Breezeway provides shaded space for guests to mingle before and after the wedding ceremony, and can also easily be reconfigured into a covered ceremony site in case of inclement weather.
Ceremony Lawn: This large lawn covered with native grasses and surrounded by rows of Texas Red Oaks features a simple altar area with room for creative couples to adapt for their personal tastes and style. Behind the altar, wedding guests have the perfect long-distance views of the rolling hills and Texas Hill Country vistas.
Little Tree: Little Tree is an alternate intimate outdoor ceremony space under a group of mature live oaks next to an old dry-stacked stone wall.
Biergarten: This 1500 square foot outdoor space includes a tree canopy and built-in bench seating. It also has a concrete and steel outdoor bar, cafe tables, and is linked to the Main Hall. The Biergarten is another perfect space for guests to mingle before and after the ceremony, as well as during the reception.
