About Us

Mark and Kathy Hunt are pleased to share with you Chateau on the Creek, a central Texas stone and oak beam crafted venue nestled on 7 scenic acres and bordering creeks near old historic Round Rock, Texas.

Our Story

We began our journey in weddings over 35 years ago in Houston, Texas.  As a young married couple we helped Kathy’s mom in the catering/consulting business on the weekends while maintaining our “ real” jobs during the week.  Soon, as we started our family, Kathy decided to take a break from teaching in order to be a “stay at home mom” and began baking wedding cakes. Her Cakes by Kathy business traveled with us as we moved to Utah then ultimately back home to Texas where we settled in Austin in 1997. Ten years later in 2007 we opened Chateau on the Creek and hosted our first wedding on April 21st. We love the excitement of the families, the butterflies of the bride getting ready to walk down the aisle, the tears during those special heartfelt moments and we would love the honor of sharing your wedding day with us here, at Chateau on the Creek.

My husband and I had such a great experience working with Kathy and Mark. We were planning our wedding from out of town and loved that the venue had the option of coordinating the majority of services (which were top notch) in-house. It made planning so easy and stress-free! The only service we had to arrange was finding an officiant, which they actually had a great suggestion for! The catering company they work with for their package deals was phenomenal! I still have guests commenting about how great our food was. It seriously was the best wedding food I’ve ever had and I love that Kathy and Mark made sure that the catering company used for their wedding packages was high quality. Throughout the whole planning process Kathy was such a joy to work with! We also had our wedding cakes done through the venue, which Kathy makes, and they were so wonderful. I gave her a couple of pictures of what I liked and I was so happy with my cake. Not only was my cake beautiful, but both mine and the groom’s cake tasted amazing! I had many guests comment about how yummy the cakes were. You will not be disappointed in Chateau on the Creek. The venue is absolutely beautiful. We got married at the gazebo under the trees and it was gorgeous. We also loved that there is a really nice back patio area with lit trees, fireplace, and stunning fire pit! It was a very popular area! The venue has plenty of spaces that people can spread out and congregate at. It never felt crowded where ever you were at. We would definitely recommend the Chateau on the Creek to any couple that wants a beautiful place to get married with stress-free planning! My husband and I couldn’t have been happier with our choice and so many guests commented how beautiful and great everything was at the wedding.

We are so thankful for Mark and Kathy and their many years of expertise. They know their venue and were ready to help us with anything we needed. You truly cannot ask for an easier wedding planning experience with their bundled package. Kathy’s cakes were so delicious! Our wedding day went off without a hitch, seriously, and we can’t thank Mark and Kathy enough!


From beginning to end you were simply amazing. When we were indecisive you made suggestions. When we were in doubt, you provided reassurance. The venue, the cake, the celebration was everything we dreamed of. Thank you for making our day extra special. We are truly grateful for everything you have done.

Ms Kathy has been nothing but amazing since the beginning. All our family and friends thought the venue was extremely gorgeous and the service provided was just spectacular.


Chateau on the Creek was a fabulous place for our wedding ceremony in June 2018. The grounds are always kept immaculate and green even in the summer which makes for gorgeous outside wedding pictures! Kathy and Mark are so friendly and welcoming. You feel like family when you are there. We loved their outside patio area. It is a great place to mingle and enjoy the evening. The gazebo is a beautiful ceremony spot. Very shaded and so comfortable, even in summer. Their package is great and really helps coordinate all the vendors. Definitely a great wedding venue.

One stop shop for weddings! Exactly what I wanted. The grounds were really nice and well kept, the food and cake was amazing. The flowers were what I had asked for and the DJ did everything right. Kathy made sure my day went perfectly and I couldn’t be happier!


We cannot say how blessed we were to find Kathy and Mark at Chateau! It was a breeze to plan our big day. The venue is picturesque and had everything we could have hoped for. They went above and beyond to make everything perfect and seamless. I would recommend them in a heartbeat. Kathy made me feel at ease and I didn’t have a worry on the day of!

There are truly not enough words to express how AMAZING our experience was at Chateau on the Creek! Kathy is so warm and friendly. She loves what she does and her love shines through in every last detail. Kathy was so helpful and all the vendors were wonderful! I was so sad to see our evening end and have to say goodbye to Kathy.

Kathy and Mark at Chateau on the Creek were wonderful to work with and made wedding planning a breeze! We first discovered the venue at an open house, and then the Wednesday of each month leading up to the big day, we came by to talk to the various vendors and to get to know and choose the best ones for us. Our wedding in January was the perfect day despite being the coldest day of the winter in Austin! We still got married outside by the fireplace and it was everything we hoped it would be! The chocolate/chocolate filled cake covered in bling was the best cake I’ve ever tasted! I can’t wait to thaw the top for our anniversary! Thank you so much Kathy for making our vision a reality!

Tracy & Brad

I cannot express how happy and pleased I am with my entire experience with the Chateau! From day one a year ago when meeting and choosing the Chateau for our reception Kathy and Mark have been phenomenal. The complete package they provide is like no other deal I found and let me tell you I researched! The day of our wedding was like a dream, Kathy and Mark had everything run smoothly and our DJ Pete Aranda is like no other! My guests have been non stop talking about how wonderful everything was. The cakes were one of the best wedding cakes I’ve ever tasted and my guests agreed! I just want to publicly thank the Chateau on the Creek for making my wedding day one of the most memorable experiences in my life. I highly recommend Chateau on the Creek for any of your events you will not be disappointed.


Kathy and Mark are AMAZING!!!! The vendors they use took the stress out of wedding planning. I was able to enjoy the entire process with their team supporting me. The grounds were beautiful! The food was fantastic! Our cake was amazing! My husband and I did not have a worry in the world!! I 100% recommend the Chateau for any couple that wants to truly create a picture perfect day, with professional support, quality products, and reasonable prices. Thank you Kathy, Mark and Team for making our dreams come true!!

My husband and I had our wedding at Chateau on the Creek, we were new to Austin and were overwhelmed by all the choices we needed to make. We loved the package that they offered. It was a great value and all of the preferred partners were very professional. From the food to the cake and the flowers everything was perfect. Chateau on the Creek is a beautiful venue and Kathy and Mark are wonderful, professional and easy to work with. We highly recommend Chateau on the Creek!


My husband and I were just married at The Chateau in June! We HIGHLY recommend it to anyone and everyone. Kathy is the sweetest and most helpful human I have met. She really made the wedding planning process less stressful. The staff, location, vendors, food and cakes by Kathy are to die for. I could sit here all day and write a list of reasons why you should use this venue! Absolutely amazing.

Cali S

Kathy and everyone at the Chateau really went above and beyond to make our wedding PERFECT! It poured rain and we had to move everything inside, but it was still very pretty and you can tell the venue was prepared for every scenario. Our day-of coordinator was Angie, she was so helpful and very punctual about making sure everything happened when and where it should. She took care of things that never would have occurred to me. Wedding planning is stressful, but the chateau’s package deal makes it as easy as it possibly can be. Thank you so much for making my dream wedding a reality!


I cannot say enough good things about Chateau on the Creek! The fact that it is a package made wedding planning a breeze–the package included almost everything we needed, and I was able to sit back and relax and just plan the little details. Kathy is super helpful with everything and extremely friendly and sweet, it made the planning process very nice and easy, and she was available for any questions or recommendations. Her cakes were absolutely delicious and we loved both the bride and groom’s cakes! The grounds were beautiful and well kept and made for a gorgeous ceremony and reception, the outdoor fire pit was really nice and beautiful as well and our guests enjoyed that area. When the wedding day came everything went well, and her and her staff were there to assure everything ran smoothly. We chose the bar-be-que for the catering and we loved it, and our guests commented on how great everything tasted. And for everything that you get with the package the price is very agreeable! I was so thrilled with how everything turned out, and I am very happy that we chose Chateau for our venue!


I cannot say enough about Kathy and the Chateau. When me and my husband decided to move our wedding up faster, I did not even know how I could handle the stress. The Chateau was the first venue that we saw. We went to their open house in January 2014. Not going to lie, we were both sold in a matter of minutes. The facility is beautiful and absolutely breathe taking. Even in the winter time, we could tell that this was the place for our wedding. The outdoor area was exactly what I had pictured. The staff was so warm and friendly. Kathy is amazing and has the best relationships with all the right vendors. I would text her at all hours and get a response. I had no worries, she took care of EVERYTHING. This is the best place and the prices cannot be beat. I would recommend this venue to anyone. It made my wedding everything I could have ever imagined and more!

My husband and I were married on May 4th (a Sunday) at the chateau and it was perfect. All of my guests kept commenting on how lovely the trees were and how wonderful the hors d’oeuvres were (we had some hors d’oeuvres and the fajitas). Kathy was fantastic and always answered my bajillion questions. I was so confident in her and her team that I had a completely stress free day. Amazing! I couldn’t have asked for anything better. All of her vendors were so helpful, the florist did exactly what I was looking for, and the DJ was fun and upbeat. I seriously couldn’t recommend this venue enough. If you are looking for a woodsy, intimate, all inclusive venue with a staff who knows what they are doing and for a stress free day, then this is the place for you!

Mark and Kathy, the owners of the Chateau, are wonderful. Every month they have an open house and encourage you to come each time. That’s when we were able to take measurements, talk with vendors for other services and mostly importantly taste Kathy’s cakes! The experience from start to finish was professional and definitely worth the price. We are very pleased with our experience and would absolutely recommend them to any engaged couple.


Chateau on the Creek is ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL!!! Kathy is also amazing! We got married on a Sunday afternoon in April. It was sprinkling during the ceremony but it was so light that we were still able to have it outside. Kathy helped organize everything and responded very quickly whenever I had questions or concerns about anything from timing to etiquette. I couldn’t have done it all without her help. We went with the Sunday Package which was an amazing deal that included the food, drinks and cake (The BEST cake you could ever taste). We had a dry wedding that helped save us a ton of money too. Kathy made sure everything ran smoothly and on time for the rehearsal and the wedding itself. I cannot even begin to describe how much of a blessing Kathy was for our day. I will continue to highly recommend Chateau on the Creek and Kathy to everyone I come in contact with! I cannot say how amazing they were and how helpful.


My original venue fell through so when I found Kathy at Chateau on the Creek, I was so relieved and truly believe it was a better choice of venues. It’s beautiful inside and out. The food was AMAZING which is rare for many of the weddings I’ve been to. Kathy, the owner and coordinator, was originally a pastry chef and made cakes so again, the cakes were FANTASTIC. She was always calm and prompt with answering questions and figuring things out. I would definitely recommend this venue to anyone looking for a beautiful place to get married with a great wedding coordinator. My wedding was perfect!


We celebrated our daughter’s wedding at the Chateau and it was the most magical event ever. The grounds are so green and gorgeous with the gazebo and all. Kathy and her staff worked tirelessly the entire afternoon well into the evening. The caterer’s food was delicious and the cakes by Kathy herself were moist and delicious. I appreciated her calm attitude. The budget did not break the bank. Many friends and family were amazed at the beauty, surroundings and ambience of the entire event. The DJ Dexter was wonderful as well and the music was not too loud when we were eating and visiting. I appreciated Kathy’s upbeat attitude every time I called her. Thank you all including her staff. Wonderful, wonderful memories.


Such a great venue! I fell in love with this place the second I got out of my car on the first visit. The value of this venue is unbeatable and it makes it so easy because almost everything you need is all included in one price and Kathy (the owner) is so knowledgable about any questions or concerns you could have. Kathy absolutely knows what she’s doing! She was so organized and helpful, she made it a breeze. The caterers she uses are fabulous also! She makes the cakes (also included in the price!) and they are soooooo good! Kathy was so easy to get a hold of through the process and is very focused on keeping everyone happy. We had rain early in the day on our wedding day and she has so many different options on where to have the ceremony. We had it outside still but just changed from the lawn to the concrete. I can’t recommend this venue more strongly. You won’t regret it! Love love love.


My love and I recently recited our vows to each other in front of the gazebo at Chateau on the Creek. This venue is beautiful with green grass, stone walkways, the gazebo, the chateau, fountains and is the perfect place to make your commitment. Kathy was very accommodating and wonderful to work with, so much so that the ceremony and the festivities were no stress. She took care of everything and was on scene to make sure we did not have to handle a single detail. We ate, we danced, we drank and everyone raved about what a great time they had. The Chateau is definitely top notch!

From start to finish, Kathy and her staff exceeded anything and everything I could have imagined. They are absolutely wonderful. I had the best experience of my life here, and they made it all possible. Kathy, along with her staff was very professional. The food was fantastic, and the cake was to die for! I can’t thank them enough for all the hard work they did to make my wedding perfect. The venue and reception area are beautiful. We were married outside, and it is spectacular! The scenery is amazing, the grass is green!! but most of all, they were literally like family. They get to know you and your needs and are always asking questions. If you need anything they are there to help you. I would definitely recommend this venue to my friends! Thank you so much Kathy and Mark, for making my wedding one of the most memorable and enjoyable days of my life. I cannot thank you and your staff enough. It was truly amazing.

Laura T

Our wedding at the Chateau was absolutely perfect. Mark and Kathy Hunt have thought of every detail and Kathy will hold your hand through the entire process and help bring all of your dreams and desire to full reality. Her attention to detail and their very professional staff made my wedding day everything I had imagined and more. I would recommend the Chateau on the Creek to any bride who is looking for a full service venue in the greater Austin area!
