You get to choose from our established Austin catering companies on the approved catering list. Food & beverage service is such an important piece of your guests’ experience that we have vetted the best catering partners who have proven themselves by their exemplary service at the Villa. The catering staff is responsible for setting up all the tables and chairs, providing food/beverage, bartenders/bar services, place settings, linens and bussing trash throughout the event, taking down all tables and chairs, and cleaning at the end of the event.

*For cultural fusion weddings, you can get food from an outside restaurant or caterer who specializes in the culturally focused cuisine you are wanting. But you MUST still hire either Sparkle Events or Sterling Events from our preferred list, for venue setup/breakdown, food setup and service, beverages and bar services.
You are required to choose one of our preferred vendors for this category. IF you already have one booked prior to the venue, we can be flexible once they are vetted and approved.
