Welcome to Riverbend

We understand that visiting a church can be awkward and intimidating, but Riverbend was created for people who are intimidated by church. We invite you to give us a try! Feel free to take your time, look around and get to know us. We hope to see you soon!


Weddings at Riverbend

Located in the scenic hill country on the west side of Austin, the Smith Family Chapel at Riverbend Church was built in an old-world style of the 18th century using native white limestone mixed with dark stained red oak beams. It features contemporary stained glass windows. The acoustics are wonderful with full audio and video capability available. The chapel seats 340 comfortably (371 max) and opens onto a beautiful stone patio. Weddings can be booked for morning, afternoon, or evening.

A Riverbend Wedding Coordinator and Sound Technician are included for your event. A Bosendorfer grand piano is available for use as well. Brides and grooms can use an officiant of their choice, or if they prefer, one of Riverbend’s Pastors.

For more information or to reserve your wedding date and time, please contact Jill Moore, our Wedding Director to complete the Wedding Contract Agreement form and mail or email to her.
