A few months ago, my little brother got married!  I was so honored when they asked me to help plan their big day.  They decided on a small guest list and to keep expenses low, we did many DIY projects.

After a small chapel wedding in Georgetown, we headed to the Rabb House in Round Rock, Texas for the reception.  The space was perfect for the 80 guests and an industrial-chic decor.

The Sweetheart Table

The Cake was a three layer vanilla with blueberry filling and topped with fresh blueberries.

Bar-B-Que Buffet

Self-Serve Bar with wine, Paloma, tea, water and beer (Austin Amber is a local favorite).

The Famous Round Rock Donuts made the perfect favor for the guests.

The dance floor was created by 4 free-standing posts from which we hung papel picado strands.  DJ Eddie Garcia kept the crowd going all night.  He was a great addition to the night and we highly recommend his services! 

For the big Texas Longhorn fan, a Longhorn groom's cake and table decorations.

A few months into the planning, we found out that the Longhorns would play at the same time as the reception.  What are the odds they would schedule a Sunday evening game?!  That didn't stop these Longhorn fans for checking in on the game….

And it was a Longhorn win over Notre Dame to end the perfect evening!



  1. Hello! I am glad to see your little brother’s wedding turned out so wonderfully! I am getting married at the Rabb House in April, but my contract says no kegs. I was wondering how you worked it out with the facility to have kegs upstairs.
    I hope you see and respond to this comment, thank you!

    • Congratulations! We loved the Rabb House! We read the same thing in the contract but talking to the staff, they said it was okay as long as it remained outside. I hope they will allow you to do the same. 🙂

  2. You looked like you had a very nice wedding at the Rabb House. Is there anything you didn’t like or would do differently? There aren’t many photos on line but from what I have seen the lighting looks horrendous if you were aiming for an intimate, romantic, evening wedding, which I am. Or can it not be helped because of all the windows??? Also where did you have your ceremony?

    • Hi Beth, We loved the venue! There is lots of natural light with the windows. During the reception, it got dark, so the lighting changed. The ceremony was at a small chapel in Georgetown off the square.

      The things I loved about the Rabb House were: 1 – you can bring your own food and drinks (saving lots of money and giving you more options on catering, 2 – we had the venue longer to setup and cleanup than most facilities, 3 – it was a large space for the price of the rental, 4 – it was clean and well maintained, 5 – lots of parking for guests 6 – balcony and extra area downstairs gave guest plenty of room to spread out.

  3. How long did y’all reserve the venue for? I would like to potentially have a wedding ceremony and reception there in the future, but am not sure on how many hours to rent the place..how long was setup and tear down? Also, if you can remember what all comes in the prep kitchen? I’m looking to self-cater as well. Thank you in advance!

    • We had the venue for the full day. I can’t remember the exact hours, but we started setting up early and finished with a late night cleaning up!

  4. How many tables and guest were you able to fit indoor?
