  • Absolutely perfect! The venue is absolutely stunning as backdrop. There are tons of options for setup and the staff is open to creative, new ways of working. The food was delicious and commented on by the guests. I particularly loved the cake, the chocolate one with caramel drip. We also loved the group tasting they had. It was a perfect opportunity to taste the options and also speak to other couples getting married around the same time. Although I loved how the day turned out and I wouldn't change it for me, what I learned from those conversations is you really can do most of what you need to do within the offerings from Barr, without bringing in outside vendors. So if you're on a budget, definitely consider that. Now I have to talk about Krystal, our coordinator. She was absolutely amazing!! Planning the wedding from across the country was challenging but I had so much confidence in her that I knew the day would be flawless, and it was. She was super organized and provided helpful s...

  • We got married in August and had last minute rain, but Barr Mansion has a beautiful Plan B (the ballroom) and everything turned out great! The food was good and the schedule ran smoothly, our coordinator, Krystal Wigfield, was AWESOME. She went above and beyond to make sure everything ran smoothly and that I had everything I needed. Thank you Krystal and Barr Mansion!

  • Barr Mansion was such a wonderful venue to work with. My husband and I only looked at 3 venues total and I knew instantly that Barr Mansion was going to be my choice. It had everything I was looking for. I knew as soon as I saw the historic house and beautiful grounds, that it fit my vintage style perfectly. They also have a new ballroom, which is just as beautiful, and they designed it perfectly for weddings. I could not be more happy with my choice. I love that they are a package deal. You get the ceremony site, the reception site and a full menu to choose from! The food was amazing. We got SO many compliments from our guests at just how amazing the food was. We also got numerous compliments at how beautiful the venue was, how friendly and helpful the staff was, and how smoothly the entire even went off without a hitch. Everyone was truly satisfied. The staff was very responsive to my phone calls and emails leading up to the big day. They are very experienced and will take care of ev... Read more

  • Shanna and her team were outstanding. Pristine lush grounds, an immaculate historical mansion, and a jaw-dropping glass-fronted ballroom, and we haven't even gotten to the phenomenal chef that uses all organic ingredients. Our slow cooked beef ribs were the talk of the reception. Shanna was so cool, calm and collected. She was so attentive to me and my bridal party the entire day. I couldn't have chosen a better place to marry my best friend!

  • I cannot say enough good things about Shanna and the rest of the staff at The Barr Mansion! They truly try to make your wedding planning experience as easy as possible. Our wedding was everything we could have hoped for and more because of the people at The Barr Mansion! No matter where you decide to have your ceremony on site, every single inch of this place is stunning! We initially wanted to have our ceremony outside by the tree, but the weather decided otherwise. Our plan B in the farmstead was still as beautiful as the tree would have been. Shanna and the team were so quick to help rearrange things and make the area look exactly how we wanted. Everyone that has commented to us about our wedding, the common thing that everyone had to say was how amazing the food was. They could not stop raving about it and saying that it was the best food they've ever had at a wedding! We would recommend The Barr Mansion to anyone ten times over!!

  • Tucked away in Northeast Austin is a gem of a venue, Barr Mansion. The location was perfect for our wedding, as it gave it an intimate, romantic Austin-like feel. We booked Barr Mansion for our wedding site and reception for our October 2015 nuptials because it was a one stop shop for ceremony, reception, catering and cake! It is such an earthy, natural and just plain beautiful location that doesn't need much decor. They definitely keep up with their property! Our wedding took place under the tree around 5pm, which gave us amazing photos due to the sunset behind us. It was a location where we didn't lose the feel of the wedding after the ceremony. Our coordinator arranged it where the guests were greeted with some drinks and appetizers while we broke away and had 5 minutes as husband and wife. The Artisan Ballroom had ivy growing around the windows and it gave our reception a very intimate home-like setting. It was able to fit our 160 guests comfortably and the food was all amazing! Th...

  • Perfect location for an outdoor/indoor rustic wedding. We had Shanna as our coordinator and she was calm, friendly, and super organized. The food is superb too with much of it coming from Barr Mansion's own gardens. The cake was a dream come true!

  • We got married at Barr Mansion in May 2015 and everything about this venue was perfect! The grounds are gorgeous, and you have full access to the main Victorian-style house, the glass-façade Ballroom, and the outdoor covered Farmstead. The grounds also include a rose garden, a big beautiful pecan tree, and gardens where they grow their own food. Guests ranted and raved about how spectacular the venue was and how they had never seen anything like it before! Upon signing our contract with Barr Mansion, we were invited to monthly cocktail events where we got to sample appetizers and drinks, view decorations from different vendors, listen to DJs and string groups perform, and ask questions of the coordinators and staff on site. Also included is a harvest tasting, where you get to sample all the food that will be available to choose from on your wedding day. The venue prepares all their food on-site and offers selections based on which season your wedding is in and which foods are in ha... Read more

  • We had our reception at Barr Mansion and absolutely loved it! From the decor to the food to the professional and courteous staff, it made our wedding day so much smoother to have most everything covered by one place. One piece of advice: definitely go to the free quarterly tasting to try out all the wonderful food and get an idea of what will work for your big day!

  • 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 directe... Read more

  • The Barr Mansion was the perfect place for us - a big dose of vintage and modern amenities - in the same venue. The owners and employees are great, the cake designer at Barr Mansion was awesome and our entire wedding day ran smoothly. As with all weddings, things can get pricey but the venue was really helpful in recommending vendors who could meet our needs and help us stay within our budget.

  • Loved my wedding at Barr Mansion and would do it again in a heartbeat. Changes/minor hiccups: I would hire an outside coordinator. Not that they did a bad job, I just needed someone a little more Type A since I am not to take care of very minute details. A few tables were served undercooked chicken and all we got was a half-hearted apology and that they made sure it wouldn't happen again. I wish I had known earlier in the planning process that the Barr Mansion wedding coordinator does not stay for the entire reception. She did ask if it was ok for her to leave after dinner service & cake cutting. I get it, I just wish I had known sooner. The catering manager was left in charge, it was just weird since I had not met him and felt a little awkward. Again, not a big deal, just wish I had known earlier in hindsight. I really did love the venue and would recommend it to anyone looking to get married in Austin

  • This is a tough review to write. First and foremost, I have to say that venue presents it self beautifully, and provided the amazing indoor/outdoor options that we wanted to utilize. Our guests had an amazing time, and our wedding was picturesque (thanks in part to great weather). That was the good, now onto the most disappointing aspects of Barr Mansion: 1. The employee we signed our contract with at Barr Mansion quit shortly after. As such, it was like pulling teeth to get the venue to agree to terms that were offered and agreed upon in the contract. 2. When we signed the contract, we were advised that a "day of wedding coordinator" would not be necessary, as the venue provided this service. Thankfully, my wife talked me into getting one anyways. The lady the venue gave us was cold, uncooperative, forgetful, and at times obstinate. "The Customer is Always Right" was not a motto she lived by. I can only imagine the disaster that would have occurred if we had not hired our... Read more
