  • 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

  • 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. B. Austin, Mother of the Bride

  • Barr Mansion was absolutely gorgeous. All the staff is so friendly, helpful and flexible. Our coordinator was Thea, and we couldn't have asked for anyone better for us. She understood everything we envisioned and helped make it happen. Every detail was perfect that day thanks to the wonderful staff.

  • 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.

  • Our wedding at the Barr Mansion was everything I hoped for. It was beautiful & the food was delicious. There aren't too many options for food selections, but that's because it's all organic, which was preferable to me. Even my friends with eating restrictions could eat almost everything because there were no hidden ingredients. They were also super helpful in ensuring my grandmother had enough sauce. The only problem I experienced was that I did not know the coordinator would not be there the entire night until she told me goodbye sometime between 8-9. Everything was well planned, so we didn't need her to be there, but it would have been nice to have known beforehand and to have had a secondary contact whom we had met before to speak with should any problems arise.

  • 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

  • Thea was really great and my experience changed dramatically after she was assigned to me as my event planner. I would give her 5 stars across the board. My experience with Barr Mansion was less than impressive before Thea came on in January (I booked our event in November). Communication was poor and unorganized. I often felt like my event was not given the attention that other events were receiving due to our wedding being during the day and not the 'main event' for the night. Thea came in an took the time to give me all the information needed, answered all my questions, and did her best to make all things right. The day of the event, Thea was organized, calm and professional. I would recommend Barr Mansion to others as long as they were working with Thea. The rest of The Barr Mansion staff definitely treats you like it's a privilege to be using their facility. As far as the facility goes, the grounds are well kept and the space presents itself really well. The food... Read more
