Prospect House : The Best Natural Light Wedding Venue in Austin

Prospect House is a chic, modern wedding venue in Dripping Springs Texas - just about half an hour south of Austin. The entire property of Prospect House is amazing. It has the most beautiful natural light throughout the reception area, a unique outdoor ceremony space featuring a recognizable square backdrop, and so many elements that add character like the modern industrial touches, a flower wall you can customize, and tons of trails with beautiful wildflowers.

You can decorate the white square with flowers or whatever else to make the altar customized to your day.

the indoor reception area

The reception area is large, with a wall of windows on the left side which provides beautiful natural light. On the opposite wall (which you can see in the photo above) there is a small line of windows across the room to provide a little more light as well as privacy.

customized flower wall in cocktail area/breezeway

The flower wall! The flower wall at Prospect House can be completely customized. Each flower/plant is in its own test tube through a little block of wood. Aside from individual flowers, I've also seen a larger flower installation or even a string design! The flower wall is in between two doors that lead to the reception area room.

The cocktail hour/ breezeway is often decorated with furniture you can get from an event rentals company. Consider pairing up with an event rentals company to transform the space into something totally unique!

This breezeway separates the bride/groom suites from the reception area. On either side are two large sliding garage/barn doors that lead to the ceremony space and the parking lot. This area is not air conditioned as the walls are just screens. It allows a wonderful breeze and beautiful natural light

Down the hallway leading to the bride/groom suite is smaller and has another swivel door on that end which leads out into the field & gorgeous property of Prospect House. See below for a photo of that hallway, and then the photo right after that is on the other side of that swivel door.

I love the industrial look of the outside of the building at Prospect House. The neutral colors make for the perfect backdrop to incorporate into some of your wedding photos to help tell the story of your day!

These unique long windows at Prospect House are super cool. Another great photo op at this spot is if the couple goes inside, then I press my camera up against that window. There is a little long hallway (between two bathrooms) that makes for a cool leading line "tunnel" photo!

the flower wall makes for perfect photo ops!

Honestly one of my very favorite parts of Prospect House is the flower wall. It's such a unique element and so incorporating it into your photos is a must! See the photo below for another method to include them!

I love the soft light in the reception area at Prospect House. Their detail elements of chiffon and grey, white, and green theme only enhanced the softness of the area!!

the unique "fan" in the reception area can be customized to suit your decor
