Our wedding venue was gorgeous! After two years of planning with some bumps on the way we finally got married (woo!!) Owner Sidonee along side her Husband and son are so sweet, easy to talk to and very accommodating. The property itself is gorgeous with the string of lights going from tree to tree, optional lanterns in every color possible, fire pit cocktail tables outside and all the gorgeous soothing fountains! Then there is the two buildings which are great for having a separate dinning room and a separate dancing room while still being in the same area! The DJ that comes with the venue, Anthony, is a sweet man and very accommodating as well! He made sure our guest go to point a to point b, took special request while playing popular favorites and variety of music and played great cocktail hour music! Couldn't say enough about the vista! -- Jenna S - 10/23/2016
This is one of the most beautiful venues that we visited. It is charming, full of character and the owners Larry and Sidonnee were absolutely amazing. They have a list of preferred vendors for catering and we selected Sterling Affairs, who have apparently been doing events at VOSH for years. Between the two we could not have been happier. as they all seemed to know what they were doing to make life easier. There is a lighting company that can hang chandeliers. I highly recommend that because it truly makes the venue so unique. We looked at several venues in the Hill Country, but none held a candle to VOSH. The location to Austin and shopping and hotels is wonderful. If you ever visit, I am convinced you will not want to go anywhere else for your wedding. One of the most impressive things is that they have an inhouse DJ., although that is an understatement, because he is a wedding planner, DJ and so many other things. He is kind, so welcoming and an absolute asset to the venue. If you are concerned about people not dancing, don't worry. We had so many people dancing because he played such great music. What memories we will have. I would definitely select VOSH for any type of event, but for a wedding, ABSOLUTELY STUNNING. -- Susan - 10/11/2016
Words can not express how much I love this venue. I attended a wedding here 2 weeks ago and somehow left my (expensive) sunglasses there. I called a week later hoping someone had turned them in. Well sure enough, the owner said he had them and the cleaners always leave whatever they find on his desk the next day. Things such as jewels of dresses, shoes, and money have all been turned in. In my opinion that is absolutely amazing. On top of that the owner mailed me my sunglasses first class the very next day. I can't thank the staff enough for everything they did. This venue is well kept with the perfect amount of hill country charm and filled with the most amazing and caring staff. -- Hilary B - 10/10/2016
Words cannot truly express how perfect my wedding was, it was truly out of a dream. From the atmosphere to the food, everything was amazing. When I first walked into the venue to tour it, my mouth dropped. There was an issue with my previous venue and I had to find a new one within a week. Sidonee was there to welcome me with open arms. I knew that this was THE place before knowing any of the details. This venue has everything you could ask for and more. Sidonee and Larry are such a pleasure to work with. They really care about their clients and are all around great people!! -- Sabrina W - 10/09/2016
Oh my goodness, where do I start bragging on this venue. The most beautiful place with the most beautiful people who are just like family. If you are thinking of a destination wedding in Austin you need to call Larry and Sidonee. They made my daughter's wedding day a truesuccess and many of the guests said what a wonderful location. Chandeliers hanging in the trees and beautiful fountains and statues. What is not too love. Unfortunately I only have one daughter and can't do it again. -- Proud Mom - 10/06/2016
Not only is this property breathtaking beautiful but so is the spirit of the more than personable owners- Larry and Sidonee. My now husband and I married only a short 4 month engagement and they helped us plan and navigate everything from ceremony to reception setup. It came recommended by our coordinator Patrice and being that I lived in Dallas I was limited in my availability to see the property and resorted to Yelp and online mediums for pics. The pictures online are beautiful but they do this place NO JUSTICE- as a bride you MUST visit the property and see it in all of its glory. Again being that we both reside out of town- my groom overseas, they kept us abreast of everything, answered every question even when they were away on vacation and were patient and understanding of our needs throughout the entire process. They were so loving, giving and ensured that VOSH would be everything we needed it to be on that day and gosh was it. As for the big wedding day- IT was amazing! The view was loved by our guests and even Sean of Austin Event Lighting- also a vendor that I highly recommend made some suggestions that ensured it went off without a hitch with perfect needed lighting. The transitions from ceremony garden to dining hall to reception room were smooth and we more than enjoyed the gorgeous picturesque bridal suite and my groom more than indulged in the groom's game room man cave so much so that he wants one of his own lol. If you are in the market for a wedding venue that isn't your typical hotel scene, gives you opulence in its ambiance with a Midsummer's Night Dream Glamour feel- please know that VISTA ON SEWARD HILL owned and operated by southern gems- Larry and Sidonee Seward is the BEST PLACE IN AUSTIN- HANDS DOWN! It was my first venue that I looked at and everything after it was more than lackluster! Thank you Mr. Larry and Mrs. Sidonee for making our wedding dreams come true! -- Dominique and Carlos - 8/29/2016
I really want to thank VOSH. I dreamt of a grand wedding since I was a little girl. With our extremely tight budget VOSH was so helpful and made my dream come true. They worked so hard and surprised me with such beautiful blessings I will never forget. I am so appreciative for everything they helped us with. The venue is absolutely breathtaking, they are extremely organized so I really just needed to show up and enjoy my wedding. I highly recommend VOSH to everyone. I really thank you again for helping my fairytale dream come true. -- Laura C - 8/8/2016
My husband and I said our vows with family and friends on May 27, 16 at the VOSH. I wanted an outdoor wedding with a Texas feel and I got it. The back drop is gorgeous. Indoor option if it rains, ceremony and reception in one area, the bridal room to the grooms room, I will never forget the Secret garden.They have thought of it all.We left relaxed, assured and confident that our wedding was going to be spectacular after each meeting. The Seward's gave us great advice and shared information when choosing vendors. Vendors have nothing but positive and great things to say about them and the venue. Our wedding turned out to be more beautiful and amazing than I would have ever dreamed of. Anthony was outstanding DJ and you have nothing to worry about the day of. Our guests never stopped dancing, out friends keep telling us how much fun our wedding was. Sean was great with the photo booth, must do at any event. Thank you to all at The Vista on Seward Hill for making our wedding the one night we will never forget! I encourage anyone to stop by and take a look at the VOSH. -- Amanda & Pete - 7/17/2016
I found this place and when I stepped in the grounds my face fell into my hands and I cried, I knew this was my venue. We had a small intimate wedding but we had very intricate details. We all dressed up as fairies with jewels and we wanted a fairytale ambiance. Sidonee andLarry, the owners, were 110 percent supportive. They always answered my calls and emails. Sidonee helped me with several different matters through out the year of planning. She was my rock. Our Catering and Anthony, the dj, were some of the most accommodating, patient and caring people. We felt loved. We had some kids and the staff would just jump into help us. This was my dream wedding come true. Not only is this place stunning and big and affordable it is priceless in terms of your dreams coming true. Thank you the vista. -- 6/15/2016
My husband and I tied the knot at VOSH in April 2016! It was the perfect venue for our outdoor spring garden wedding. VOSH is an absolutely gorgeous garden space with beautiful ponds, status, and thoughtful details everywhere you look. Sidonee and her husband were a pleasure to work with. Not only were they professional, helpful, and prompt with our questions, but they were also kind and made us both feel at ease. The amenities/staff that come with the venue were also great...less work for me! It was also great to know that if it had rained, then we would have had beautiful buildings to have both our ceremony and reception to accommodate our 200 guests. Couldn't love this place more! Wish I could get married again. - Sara D - 5/25/2016
Sidonee and her husband are absolutely amazing. She was so helpful throughout the entire process and was always great about getting back to me. The venue is breathtaking, and even though it was over cast and raining the day of my wedding, God truly provided when he made the rain stop just in time so that the wedding was able to be outside. I can't thank them enough for giving me the wedding of my dreams at their amazing venue/home. Not to mention, the guys LOVED the billiards room and everyone was talking about how personable Sidonee was. It was so convenient being able to have the ceremony and the reception at the same location. You will NOT be disappointed with this venue choice, highly recommend! -- Paulina P - 5/12/2016
Seriously. I first was at this beautiful venue 5 years ago at my mom's wedding. I knew when it was time this was exactly where I wanted to have my wedding. This was purely based on appearance it was GORGEOUS inside and out. It is such a beautiful placeit even saved me in decorations! Then when it was time to start planning Larry and Sidonee made me feel so comfortable they treated me like family. Anthony, the in house coordinator/planner was my life saver on the day of. He kept things along the schedule. So not only is the venue beautiful the people within it were even better! We had a bit of a weather scare. It was about 40 degrees during the ceremony outside but our guests were not even bothered. The day after the wedding I received numerous compliments on how beautiful the location/venue was. We are now approaching our one year anniversary and oh how I wish I could be back at this venue re-living our wedding day. The Vista on Seward Hill exceeded all my expectations and made this day the best day ever! -- Maricela E - 10/29/2015
The Vista on Seward Hill is an incredibly romantic venue to have an outdoor wedding ceremony. The venue is multifaceted with several large rooms and seating areas that add diversity and charm to your reception. It is all inclusive and provides a an incredible DJ and 2 patient, kind owners that live on property. The relationship is personal and not commercial. I would get married there again in a heart beat! Highly recommended. -- Bree S - 10/28/2015
Sidonee and Larry own the property and are probably the nicest people I've ever met. Larry gave us the tour and was simply witty, sincere and more than welcoming. I felt as if we were having our wedding at our grandparent's home. They could not have made this experience more amazing. Every guest at my wedding said this was the most beautiful wedding they had ever attended. Please don't make a decision based on the photos, you must take time out to go visit. I would not have chosen them based on the photos. I cannot say enough good things about this place. -- Rebecca - 10/10/2015
I very recently had my wedding here and I can't say enough about this beautiful venue. The first time I saw it I absolutely fell in love with it's charm. The owners treat you as though your their own daughter. I can't remember countless times I have call Sidonee and asked a bunch of questions. I would say she was very professional but she was more than that. She took on the mother hen role and calmed my nerves and assured me my wedding was going to be beautiful. There was a 50% chance of rain on my wedding day. Sidonee and Anthony ( the DJ, who is also amazing!!!) had the weather down to a science and assured me I was not going to have a rained out wedding. Absolutely LOVE these people! I have posted my stuff for sale on local Face Book pages. I used pictures from my wedding and countless of people have asked where my venue was and how beautiful it is. I have proudly told everyone on public sites about the VOSH. If your a bride or family member of the bride looking for the perfect venue and looking for a venue that offers more services than just a place to hold your wedding this is your one stop shop! -- Jennifer - 05/07/2015
My Husband (!!) and I were recently married at Vista on Seward Hill (aka VOSH) on March 7th 2015! I have nothing but positive things to say about our experiences at VOSH. It's a family owned and operated business and the Seward's do everything they can to make each wedding as perfect as possible. I learned from our first visit to the venue that if something goes wrong at a wedding they see to it immediately that another wedding will not experience the same issue - and our day was just PERFECT! Sidonee & Larry are so kind and helpful with all questions, and make you feel right at home. I am a born and raised Austinite who moved to Dallas after graduating college - so I did most of the planning remotely and visited the venue with my Mom every time I was back in town. Larry and Sidonee did everything possible to make the long-distance planning process a dream!! Sean, who handles all the lighting and AV (a great value for what is included!!!) also was so easy to work with, and produced exactly what I was imagining for the day of! The venue also includes an in house DJ/MC/Coordinator, Anthony - who did a wonderful job! He helped us with the planning process, day of logistics and played all the requested tunes to get our guests up on the dance floor. I even received a personal thank you note from the Seward's after the event - such a kind gesture. All in all - the most perfect of days and I am so glad we picked VOSH to help us celebrate! -- Kelly H - 3/19/2015
