My wedding was an absolute dream thanks to Barr Mansion. The process was easy, the coordinators were dependable, and the venue was absolutely breath taking. We traveled from out of the state to make our wedding happen in Austin and the distance seemed non existent because of the coordinators hardworking attitude and high quality of service.

When I first got engaged I knew I had to go and see Barr Mansion. I had always heard how beautiful it was, and pictures do not do it justice, gorgeous! When I first contacted Barr Mansion for a showing, they were very responsive and helpful! After we decided to have the wedding brunch reception at Barr Mansion I was paired with Elyse Shumsky-Alcorn as our event coordinator. I was so lucky to have been introduced to Elyse and to have her at my side as our coordinator! She not only represents Barr Mansion with grace and class, but she also helped me tremendously with the stress and responsibilities that come with planning a wedding! She answered all emails promptly and professionally. She helps with all the tiny details that need to be taken care of. The actual wedding day: once we arrived at Barr Mansion the staff immediately greeted me, and I knew that the rest of the day would be smooth. Elyse was there right way with a water, and to offer me a glass of champagne - She then directed me to where I needed to be, in fact, she kept me on track throughout the wedding in a very discreet manner, so as not to interrupt a guest - I loved that about her, very thoughtful! She is really a terrific coordinator - she is organized, and a great communicator. The food was absolutely delicious, and I still have guests commenting about how good the food was, and how beautiful the venue was. The cakes were gorgeous, and tasted wonderful! Their efficiency in getting everything taken down was also very good, and fast! I would highly recommend working with Elyse at Barr Mansion, I had no stress, but pure Joy the whole day. Thank you Elyse and Barr Mansion for a wonderful experience.

Barr Mansion was a fabulous venue for our wedding. It accommodated 100 people perfectly and the flow from the outdoor ceremony to the indoor reception was seamless. Our wedding coordinator Thea was easy to work with and so helpful with suggestions. The food was great and our wedding cake perfect.

This is the most beautiful venue! Our guests can't stop talking about how beautiful it was. Elyse took care of us like a pro and we would have given them 10 stars if it were available! The staff is fantastic and the wedding and reception went like clockwork. I would definitely recommend this venue.

We got married the first weekend in February, and everything turned out perfectly! The staff at Barr Mansion are incredible! The weather the day of the wedding was crazy, and the plans had to be changed the week of the wedding. I was nervous how it would all turn out since I really wanted the ceremony outside, but everything looked so great!
Elyse Shumsky is the best! She was our day of wedding coordinator and contact during all of the planning stages! She answered all of my questions, and even offered suggestions of who to use for makeup, tent rental, etc. SHE IS AWESOME! I would have been so stressed the day of the wedding if she would not have been there!
Elyse and Andy are seriously the best! They handled any problems that came up the day of the wedding, and made sure everything started on time!
And the venue is awesome- everyone is still talking about how pretty everything was and how good the food tasted!

Elyse Shumsky-Alcorn (our day-of wedding coordinator and point-of-contact up to the wedding day itself) was ABSOLUTELY AMAZING. She went above and beyond our expectations, and represented Barr Mansion incredibly well. She answered all of my emails promptly, I didn't have to worry one bit about coordination/flow issues on the day of, I was allowed to bring my photographer/parents/future in-laws on the site to show it off (just give them a heads up). Most of all, she catered to us personally (offered to grab us food and drink during the wedding reception). She gave us wonderful tips for our wedding, highlighting details my fiance and I had not even thought of. The highlight of my night was when she rescued our exit from the reception. We forgot to order sparklers, and some happened to be stored away (from previous weddings). Instead of just letting that go, she said we could use the spare ones. She revved up the crowd, and sent us on our way!!! Could NOT have asked for a better wedding coordinator...if the reception grounds and services offered alone do not convince you, Elyse is the BEST coordinator in Austin, Texas, and you'll definitely want her to help you plan your wedding.

Barr Mansion itself is beautiful!!!! Even at night, even if it was blizzarding or snowing or sleeting in Austin (threat of sleet is moderately high in Feb in Austin), the grounds are still so gorgeous. We were looking for a non-country but sweet place mixed with industrial or modern touches, and this was the place. The glass wall itself makes for an incredible backdrop in pictures (especially with the walkway lights glowing in the background at night). My friends and family kept on saying (with non-feigned enthusiasm), that the place was so elegant but not stuffy. Food was incredible! Cake and pie were incredible! Projects are in the works, I hope to see pics of it online when their additions are completed (more outside patio stuff I think). Get married/have your reception HERE!

We got married at Barr Mansion in early October 2013 and it was a fantastic experience. Barr provided us with everything we wanted in a venue: gorgeous grounds, a unique ballroom, delicious food, and an amazing coordinator.

The old Victorian house has such photogenic interiors and exteriors, which really gave the photographs an antique charm. When people see our photos, they always ask us where we got married because of how unique the spaces are especially for Texas. Guests also raved to me about the food, especially the beef tenderloin so I highly recommend having that on the menu. You can't go wrong with the food at Barr-- that part is taken care of if you book there.

One of the biggest perks of this place is that it comes with a coordinator, which in retrospect, I couldn't imagine the day without. Elyse, our coordinator, was the absolute best-- she's so organized yet low-key and efficient; plus, she's such a great person to be around and it made the wedding day all that more smooth. I miss working with her already.

Overall, Barr Mansion is a great place to get married in Austin if you're looking for something less conventional than a hotel reception and more elegant than a ranch. Plus, your photographers will thank you!

We LOVED our wedding at Barr Mansion! The facility is beautiful and provided the perfect setting for our romantic and fun wedding! We planned on getting married under the tree but due to the rain the day before we moved the ceremony inside. The windows in the ballroom gave us the feel of outside without the humidity :) it was beautiful! We worked with Elyse through our wedding process and she was great! She made sure everything was taken care of the day of the wedding so that my parents and family could enjoy the day! The guests raved about the food and how beautiful it all was!
