Why Choose an Urban Wedding?
Urban weddings have become popular and for good reason. With wedding guests to entertain for days at a time, having a destination that people can not only get to easily, but can find a place to stay and plenty to do is a great way to keep your guests happy and get everyone mingling. Oftentimes, the wedding venues you find in an urban setting have a charm and character all their own with a rich history that you can’t find anywhere else. Industrial wedding venue options are very enticing in a cityscape.
What is an Industrial Wedding Venue?
Industrial wedding venues feature exposed wood beams, oversized windows and expansive spaces that create a no-fuss vibe, allowing each event to build upon the timeless ambiance. The Union on Eighth captures all these things with its raw look, meticulous details, and character that can only be told looking back on its 90-year history as a blacksmith shop, dealership and transmission shop, none of which can be matched or replicated. When couples enter The Union on Eighth they step back in time but see a modern, industrial blank canvas at which they can make their own. A raw warehouse which they can bring their designs, their history, their story and start a new, happy journey together.
Industrial wedding venues are set in the midst of the hustle and bustle of city life, creating excitement in the middle of all the action. Only a short, 20-minute journey north of Downtown Austin, The Union on Eighth is in the heart of booming Central Texas. We call the most beautiful town square in Texas home. In Georgetown, The Union on Eighth enjoys being a part of this vibrant downtown area, while still offering its own urban oasis.
Set just a block off the charming and vibrant Town Square, our clients can easily enjoy all there is in Georgetown. Restaurants, bars, shops and wineries, along with hotels, inns and bed and breakfasts are all within a few blocks reach. And when you are ready to retreat, The Union on Eighth is unique in the way it creates a private and intimate getaway for our clients. A lush courtyard garden offers views to Downtown. We have worked to create a hip venue that is the best of both worlds.
