Carleen Bright Arboretum

The Hidden Jewel of Woodway

Covering more than 16 acres in the Central Texas area, the Carleen Bright Arboretum is not only the perfect location for weddings and special events, but also home to some of the area’s most unique gardens. The “hidden jewel of Woodway” boasts two wedding venues, the Pavilion and the Whitehall Center. The Pavilion is a premier destination in Central Texas for life’s special moments. The state-of-the-art 10,000 square-foot, barn-inspired building is nestled within a beautiful area of native woodlands, bringing guests in touch with nature. Multiple doors and large windows welcome the outside in and tempt guests onto a generous covered front porch facing the outdoor Gazebo. The Pavilion’s beautiful gardens create the perfect setting for celebrations in any season. The Whitehall Center is a replica of the original Whitehall Church and its beautiful stained-glass windows add to the intimate ambiance. Whitehall Center is 1,800 square feet and holds 125 people for a seated dinner or 180 for classroom seating. It has an adjacent terrace and 1,100 square-foot covered patio with a ceremony arbor making it ideal for indoor/outdoor events.
