Weddings at Riverbend

The most beautiful chapel in Austin, Texas!

Located in the scenic hill country on the west side of Austin, the non-denominational wedding chapel at Riverbend was built in 2000, designed in an old-world Tuscan style of the 18th century, using native white limestone mixed with dark stained oak beams. It features contemporary stained glass windows and opens up to a beautiful stone patio, the perfect blank canvas for any wedding. The acoustics in our chapel are one of a kind with state of the art equipment, a Bosendorfer grand piano, and full audio and video capability. Live audio recordings of your ceremony are FREE when you bring a USB drive. The chapel seats 320 comfortably with extra seating in our balcony; the chapel holds 371 max. Weddings can be booked for a morning, afternoon, or evening ceremony. 

An experienced professional Riverbend Day of Wedding Coordinator and Sound Technician are included for your event along with a Wedding Director to walk you through all details regarding your ceremony in our chapel. Also included are a private bridal suite and groom’s room, equipped with all the amenities and extras a wedding party could need. 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 begin preparations for your special day.
