The pandemic had almost ruined our plans of a fairytale wedding, but ACL Live and the wonderful staff came to the rescue.

Everything was so easy and ran so smoothly that there was no need for stress. From the decor to the coordination, production, photography and communications prior to the event, everyone was helpful and made our day feel like a dream.

Thank you ACL Live for providing us with the best Austin wedding experience possible!

Thank you so much for making our big day PERFECT! Everyone was so helpful and friendly and the venue was beautiful and perfect. Between the snacks, drinks, music and pictures, you guys kept our guests so entertained when we couldn't. I am 100000% happy we chose ACL Live to host our wedding. I cannot say enough good things about it. From the execution of the event to the customer service and communication. In addition to that, the cake we received from the W was to die for. Wow it was amazing and yummy.


Thank you so much for all your help. You guys truly made our dreams come true!

We have been swooning ever since our wedding  Our feet have yet to hit the ground we are so high up on cloud nine!  You and your staff were absolutely top notch and truly a class act.  We were overwhelmed with everyone's heart felt kindness and professionalism.  Even though we saw pictures ahead of time, when you walked us into the venue it took our breath away.  Every minute of our time at ACL Live was truly a dream come true, and everyone in attendance said it was the coolest and most badass wedding they had ever seen.  Thank you so very much.  We will now have cherished memories.

We & everyone else enjoyed ourselves & loved everything about it. Several weeks before I received the email about the weekend weddings, I entered a contest to win a huge wedding package at a well known church with a beautiful chapel on a hill. Then we got the ACL Live email. We loved this idea. When we were contemplating, we got word that we won. We chose ACL Live & are so happy we did. Because of COVID, many of our friends didn’t get to come, but because you guys hooked us up on you tube, we were able to invite everyone!  Thank you for adding more to our love story.

Our wedding at ACL Live in front of the iconic Austin City Limits skyline was such an incredible experience! My husband and I were so excited to see the opportunity to get hitched in a truly memorable and historic way. Working in the music industry in Austin and being a fan of the famous show, it was the perfect way for my fiance and I to say "I Do." Having planned weddings in the past, I think the most fabulous part about this was how stress free it was. The package deal laid out all the details for us with little "to do" on our part...how awesome is that?! The ACL Live staff were friendly and top notch. The wedding was beautiful in the state-of-the-art venue with the decor, lighting and high quality sound, and the team executed flawlessly. I had so many friends say it was the best wedding they'd seen.

Our Shotgun Willie Wedding experience was absolutely amazing! The hospitality of the staff exceeded beyond our expectations. We feel so grateful to have had the opportunity to wed and have our first dance on the stage where we have seen several artists perform amazing shows. Thank you so much for giving us the chance to start our journey in life together, at our favorite venue. 💗

Married 9.20.20

We had the best experience getting married during Wedding Week.  We got engaged in March 2020 and with COVID, we knew that we would not be able to safely have the type of wedding we wanted for a long time.


When we saw this opportunity come up, we knew instantly we wanted to do it.  We have seen so many shows at ACL that have been special to our relationship. 


The process was insanely easy.  The ACL Live staff was so kind and really made me feel like a bride- even though all of the communication was through email.  They were great about communicating the details of the day and I felt supported by them every step of the way.  Even though it’s a short ceremony, we were able to customize details like music and lighting to really make the experience feel like ‘us’.


Aside from the fact that we hold ACL near to our hearts, the biggest plus of this kind of wedding is all of the people you get to include.  I am from Illinois and we have family and friends all over the country.  We had people in every time zone that watched our ceremony.  If we had a traditional wedding, I know so many of those people would not have been able to be a part of our special day.  Our families all said that the video was clear and they could hear everything- which is not something you can guarantee with a zoom meeting wedding on your backyard wifi. 

The time goes FAST, but it was so special for us, our family, and friends.  They provide you with a link to the ceremony that you can save so you can go back and watch and share with anyone who might have missed it.


I would also recommend upgrading and getting photograph package.  Since time is so limited, it was nice to have someone designated to taking pictures and making sure we were using our time well.  She was super sweet and when she showed us a preview of a few pictures and we were floored with how awesome the professional lighting looked (something that we would never have been able to afford outside of this experience).

It was a perfect day free of the stress and pressure I have heard my friends talk about when describing their wedding days.  It was truly just about us, in a venue we love, in a city with love, with everyone we love watching. ​

My husband and I had to postpone our wedding due to the pandemic but when this offer of a Shotgun Willie Wedding appeared in our inbox we KNEW this was a once in a lifetime opportunity.


One of the biggest draws for us was that we were also supporting the Austin music scene during a time when they need it the most.


Getting married on stage at the WORLD famous Moody Theater was epic.


The staff made it fun and stress free.

The event was better than expected.

The sound, the lighting, the vibe was so perfect.

We can’t say enough great things about our experience. Our guests were also raving.

We would tell anyone who is considering a small wedding to take advantage of this. Especially if you are a music lover.
