Industrial Wedding Venues: A Unique Twist on Your Big Day

Industrial Wedding Venues: A Unique Twist on Your Big Day

In recent years, wedding venues with an ‘industrial’ vibe have gained popularity for their unique and unconventional charm. These venues offer a departure from traditional wedding settings by providing a raw, edgy, and versatile backdrop for couples who want to create a one-of-a-kind wedding experience.  

Here’s what you need to know about industrial wedding venues in the Austin, Texas area: 

Architectural Elements  

Industrial wedding venues are often found in repurposed warehouses, factories, manufacturing spaces, or historical buildings. These spaces typically feature high ceilings, exposed brick walls, concrete floors, and large windows that create a distinctive and visually striking atmosphere.  

800 Congress  

A few lighting elements wholly transformed this space at 800 Congress. Along the exposed brick, we added a few uplights and wash lights to create a warm and welcoming atmosphere highlighting the floral accents along the tables.  


One of the major attractions of an industrial venue is its versatility. These spaces provide a blank canvas for couples to customize and design according to their unique vision. Whether you’re dreaming of a rustic-chic affair, a modern and minimalist celebration, or a blend of various styles, industrial venues provide the creative freedom to make the venue your own.  

Brazos Hall 

Brazos Hall offers an alluring downtown Austin location of a turn-of-the-century warehouse transformed into an alluring two-story venue. The 3,500-square-foot rooftop deck pictured above is adorned with greenery and café string lights for a modern boho look.  

Urban and Edgy Vibes 

Industrial wedding venues provide an urban and edgy ambiance that appeals to couples looking for a non-traditional wedding setting. Combining industrial elements with romantic décor and wedding lighting creates a unique juxtaposition that adds character to your event.  

Natural Light 

Many industrial venues have large windows that allow abundant natural light to wash over the space. This is particularly appealing for daytime weddings.

One Eleven East 

One Eleven East is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and provides a modern touch to a historic building in Hutto, Texas. It’s the perfect place for a quaint and intimate micro-wedding. This shot features greenery over our black metal frames and drop Edison bulbs for a unique reception for your guests.  

Historic Charm 

Some industrial weddings are located in historical buildings that have been repurposed for modern use, so you’re carrying a little bit of history with this new chapter of your life. These venues often retain original architectural features that are difficult to find anywhere else.
