At The Laurel, we get a sneak peek into the role a mother plays for every bride and groom — an important role that we know started long ago.

With over 4,500 square feet of hardwoods, soaring architectural trusses and a beautiful Austin stone fireplace, The Laurel’s Great Hall not only transports your guests to an incredible Hill Country resort setting but provides plenty of room for you to invite every close friend.
It may be concerns about the weather (what if it rains?) or inspired by tradition (it’s what our parents did!) or simply because this is the one time in your life you can honestly sing, “Going to the chapel and we’re gonna get married!” and mean it — whatever your reason, getting married in a wedding chapel is a timeless and beautiful tradition.
One of the loveliest statements a bride can make on her wedding day is the one she holds in her hands: her bouquet.
Traditionally, a few important wedding day details are held sacred by the bride. Keeping to herself the special touches of her bridal look, she wants her groom to be surprised when he sees her for the first time. And boy is it always worth it! The look in his eyes — from tears to sheer joy — proves how breathtaking a groom’s first look can be.
A natural background, fresh air, the sun shining warmly on your face — all perfect reasons for having an outdoor ceremony.
Author William Arthur Ward said, “Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it.” So in the spirit of Thanksgiving, we can’t help but express our deepest gratitude for all who have made The Laurel home for their most important events.
At first glance, it may appear to simply be a lovely, sturdy piece of suspended, rustic wood. But if you take a step back and allow your imagination to run free, a mantle can become an anchor for the most gorgeous designs.
