The Courtyard 

The heart of the center, which features a man-made pond designed to look like Jacob’s Well – the swimming hole located outside of Austin. This space is the most utilized space for our weddings being used for both ceremonies and receptions when the weather is nice. Couples can be married in front of the pond with greenery surrounding them or under the arch that you just entered through. For receptions, guests are seated under our dimmable festoon lights that stay up year round. The Courtyard can easily seat up to 200 for a reception with ample room for a bar, dance floor and music (band or dj). No additional lighting or power is needed.
