I am a native Texan and proud of it-at least now that I am older =). Born in Ft. Worth in 1968, grew up in Midland until we moved to Austin in 1981. Austin has changed a ton in the past 30 years. It is such a unique city full of friendly creative people. Hence the need for my style of unique event venue/lodging. As I grew up, my love of garden & interior design blossomed. I love to use my hands to create so during off seasons you are likely to find me digging in the dirt, wielding my compound miter saw to build something, painting, trimming trees, repurposing furniture…My desire is to create an atmosphere at The Inn at Wild Rose Hall, both inside and in the gardens, that not only speak of comfort & charm but also what I believe is truly Texan, warm and inviting.
The Owner purchased this house in 2008
In late 2003-early 2004, a gorgeous piece of property I would pass by almost every day went up for sale. I was intrigued and enamored at how beautiful and perfect it was. See I had for many years dreamed of having a B&B and a place for gatherings (event venue). I could see as I looked at those realtor pictures just how fabulous it could be. I was so excited I even had a name picked out, Wild Rose Inn. However at the time I could not afford it. The “for sale” sign came down and imagine my surprise when a new sign went up that read “Wild Rose Hall”. I drove home and immediately searched for it on the internet. There I found the page for Austin’s newest event center. I was devastated to say the least.But as they say, timing is everything. On July 1, 2008 we signed the purchase papers for Wild Rose Hall and immediately renamed it The Inn at Wild Rose Hall. An homage to their name plus my original desired name. The Inn really is my creative baby and I will continue to nurture it, create for it and embellish the beautiful piece of property that I fell in love with all those years ago.
The Inn at Wild Rose Hall is not just a business but a lifestyle and a piece of my heart. For me it is all about being relational, honest & real. I want my clients/guests to come in and feel enveloped with true Texas hospitality.
Our needs for a wedding venue were simple: we wanted a place to stash ourselves and our out of town fam for the weekend, we wanted somewhere we could do a beautiful outdoor ceremony, and we wanted it to be affordable. When we started looking, we quickly realized that "affordable" and "weekend" were hardly in the same vocabulary of most venues. The Inn, however, seemed to fit the bill... we decided to check it out. I gotta say... pleasantly surprised is an understatement. Morgan, the owner, has done amazing things with her space. It is the perfect amount of "pre-decorated", and yet still easily transformable into your own unique wedding vision. And, Morgan goes out of her way to keep you in the loop- she added me as a friend on facebook and I was able to see any and all changes she made to the inn over the course of my wedding preparations. As a DIY bride, I really appreciated that, and loved to see that she took such a nurturing interest in this special venue. And all of this for around $5,000 for the weekend! My family was very impressed with the place as well.. the beds were super comfortable, and Morgan had no protest when we made it known that we wanted our dads to barbecue for the rehearsal dinner. My father in law put it best- he walked in, looked around, and said "this place is AWESOME!" via The Knot
