Outdoor Wedding Venue


There are many outdoor wedding venues Austin brides have to choose from, but few that offer the intimate elegance and convenience found at Mercury Hall. Our outdoor wedding venue consists of 3 beautiful locations to choose from. With each having its own unique feel and look to them, but are all conveniently connected to each other, giving brides the option to use all three locations or just one.

Upper Lawn

Nestled amongst the trees and just a leisurely stroll away from our historic hall is the Upper Lawn. This wide-open grassy area can accommodate up to 250 guests and still retains its intimate feel thanks to the lush landscape and bamboo.  The Upper Lawn is an ideal wedding venue for those that are looking for a park setting for their wedding or love the idea of century old live oak trees creating a canopy over their wedding party.

Ceremony Terrace

The natural, draped canopy of our 200-year-old live oak trees over the Ceremony Terrace gives any wedding a rustic, elegant feel that can't be found at other outdoor wedding venues. Austin brides will feel like a princess out of a storybook walking down the stone pathway to the 300 square foot limestone terrace that looks out over the Upper Lawn, where guests can sit comfortably to view the ceremony in this fairytale setting.

The terrace is large enough to fit a reasonably-sized bridal party and anything needed for the ceremony. Brides also have the option to leave the terrace in its natural state for their ceremony or enhance its elegance with decorations.

Rock Garden Courtyard

The stone pathway that leads to the ceremony terrace starts in the Rock Garden Courtyard which is adjacent to the hall.  The courtyard is the most versatile of the three outdoor wedding venues here and can be used for a ceremony or reception. This area hosts cocktail hours for up to 200,  a seated reception for up to 150 and ceremonies up to 200 guests.

The bamboo and lush garden that surrounds the courtyard provide privacy for your wedding, as well as natural walls that can be decorated for your event. Our Rock Garden Courtyard can also accommodate a 30' x 60' tent if needed for possible unpleasant weather or to provide additional shade from the sun.

A festoon lighting package is also available to create a canopy of dimmable patio lights over the courtyard. Allowing the Rock Garden Courtyard to be a daytime and nighttime outdoor wedding venue Texas brides won't find anywhere else.


Our outdoor gardens and terrace connect to our historic hall that was built in 1904 and is included in your package when you choose to have your wedding at Mercury Hall. Giving the option of using Mercury Hall as an indoor/outdoor wedding venue or a fully outdoor wedding venue with an indoor backup venue for no extra charge.

Brides never have to worry about weather disrupting their special day if they do choose to have an outdoor wedding.

Reception Venue

For an additional charge,  Mercury Hall does have tables and chairs that perfectly compliment our outdoor wedding venue. We have 300 white folding chairs, 14- 60” round tables, 4- 6’ rectangular banquet tables, 4- 8’ rectangular banquet tables and 6 cocktail tables available. Of course, you are not required to use our tables and chairs; you may choose a different style from Premiere Rentals that better fits a specific wedding theme.

There is also a kitchen inside of the hall where food for a reception can be prepared in or stored and is included in the rental rate.

Unique elegance and convenience are why Mercury Hall is the premier outdoor wedding venue Austin brides are looking for.
