  • We had our wedding ceremony and reception at the TFWC in March and couldn't have asked for a more perfect venue! Not only was the courtyard beautiful for an outdoor ceremony and the ballroom breathtaking for the reception, but Mari, the manager, was so great to work with! It's a historic building with southern charms and so many of my guests commented on how beautiful and unique the venue was. Not only that but they allow outside catering so I was able to have New Fortune Restaurant cater an 8 course asian banquet and had an open bar for a fraction of what I would've paid elsewhere. Another great thing about the Fed is that it's in downtown Austin making if convenient for guests since it's only a 5 minute uber ride from their hotels instead of an hour bus ride to Dripping Springs. We absolutely recommend this venue for any bride who wants a unique venue with lots of character and charm rather than the typical hotel ballroom.
