Weddings at Riverbend

Have your wedding in the most beautiful chapel in Austin, Texas!

Located in the scenic hill country on the west side of Austin, this non-denominational wedding Chapel was built in an old-world style of the 18th century using native white limestone mixed with dark stained red oak beams. It features contemporary stained glass windows. The acoustics are wonderful with full audio and video capability available.  The chapel seats 340 comfortably, 371 max, and opens onto a beautiful stone patio; a perfect blank canvas for any wedding. Weddings can be booked for morning, afternoon, or evening. 

A Riverbend Wedding Coordinator and Sound Technician are included for your event. A Bosendorfer grand piano is available for use as well. Brides and grooms can use an officiant of their choice, or if they prefer, one of Riverbend’s Pastors.

For more information or to reserve your wedding date and time, please contact Jill Moore, our Wedding Director to complete the Wedding Contract Agreement form and mail or email to her. 



The Chapel is available for you to tour on your own Monday–Thursday 9:00AM-4:00PM, Friday 9:00AM-12:00PM and Sunday 9:30AM-1:00PM. 

Receptions for any size wedding

A short walk up the hill from the Smith Family Chapel is Riverbend’s Fellowship Hall building which features a spacious ballroom with a 24-foot high peak ceiling, over-sized windows with lots of natural lighting, and full audio/visual systems to host a reception for 100–320 guests. There are multiple options to choose from as we help you customize your reception:

  • A 360 degree dining area set up around the dance floor
  • A fully-equipped espresso & cappuccino bar
  • A separate cocktail reception area
  • A private waiting room for the bridal party

We have relationships with several excellent caterers or you may make arrangements with a caterer of your own. You may bring in your own DJ or choose the option to use our state-of-theart audio/video system and our Sound Technician. Beautiful waterfall and fountains outside provide a great backdrop for wedding photos. Please contact Krista Ross for more information.
