The grounds

Merryvale is Austin’s hidden gem. The venue sits on a 15 plus acre hilltop only 20 minutes from downtown Austin but seemingly miles away in the country down a country lane. Merryvale is surrounded by lush landscape and towering old live Oaks. At the Heart of Merryvale is our famous Heart Rock, the very core of the property. This  site is built around an amazing natural rock formation which provides the perfect backdrop to your romantic Austin Wedding. We also have a hill country view site on the edge of the hill with spectacular panoramic views.There are several ceremony sites to choose from. We can accommodate up to 300 guests.

The heart

The Heart of Merryvale is organic to the property, shaped like a heart by Mother Nature herself. It needs no decoration to make it spectacular for your big day. Covered by a heavy mantle of live oak trees, The Heart of Merryvale is our largest and most popular outdoor location and keeps your guests dry and cool all year round.  Wired for sound and lights, the Heart comes with standard festoon lighting.
