My bride-to-be and I are wanting a "vintage" wedding. She loves the 1920's feel, embodied in The Great Gatsby movie coming out soon. While I enjoy the 1920's, I am pulled more to the late 1940's and early 1950's. We are looking for a venue that invokes both of these eras.
I admit this is exceedingly vague but we both feel although its hard to describe, we will know it when we see it. However, there are a few criteria that we think it will have.
+ a 2-day rental. We want to make this a celebration with our friends and family and not just show up for the ceremony.
+ enough rooms for at least the wedding party to stay on-site. While we don't mind some people sharing rooms, we would prefer not to mix-genders. This means at least: 2 rooms for bride's parents/grandparents, 2 rooms for groom's parents/grandparents, 1 room for groomsmen (2-3), 1 room for bridesmaids (2-3), and 1 room for bridge and groom. So 7 rooms total, with 2 rooms having multiple beds.
+ a large lawn, possibly nestled up to a large house?
Can anyone please make any recommendations for places to checkout within an hour drive of Austin? Thank you!
