Owner’s Vision: Autumn Oaks Event Center Lubbock, Tx

It has been fun watching the progress we are making on building Autumn Oaks Event Center. We are anxious to get it finished and so excited about offering this beautiful indoor/outdoor venue to you, our clients, for your special occasion. As the owner and creator of Autumn Oaks Event Center, I want to tell you a little bit about the design of our building and why it is the perfect wedding venue. First of all, we designed the building and outdoor area to accommodate many types of special events, but most importantly weddings. Nothing is more special than a wedding and we wanted our focus to be on the Bride and Groom.

For the Bride and Her Girls

While focusing on the Bride, we created a spacious bridal suite decorated with soft neutral colors and a beautiful chandelier just for her. The 6 vanity stations have plenty of mirrors and lighting for the bride and bridal party to put on makeup and do what they do.  A comfortable lounging area is provided for relaxation and girl talk while getting ready. There is a designated area to hang dresses and put stuff up out of the way. The bride will love the natural lighting coming through the large double window and double glass French doors looking out onto the covered wrap around porch. This creates the ideal setting for taking beautiful pictures with her favorite girls.  We also added a private bathroom in the bridal suite just for the bride and her bridal party. I can’t forget to mention the mini fridge for drinks and a counter top for refreshments for those that need a little something to snack on.  What more does a bride need?

The Man of the Hour

Of course we can’t forget about the man of the hour.  At Autumn Oaks Event Center, we designed a comfortable groom’s room with plenty of seating and a flat screen TV for the guys to hang out, because that’s what guys do. The color scheme is in brown tones and neutral colors with a designated area to hang tuxes and get dressed for the special occasion. There is a mirror, plenty of lighting, and of course a ceiling fan because my son and son-in-law said that was a MUST.  A mini fridge is also provided for drinks and a tabletop for snacks and refreshments. The groom’s room has several large windows providing plenty of natural light and is located next to the men’s restroom for easy access.

The Layout

In designing Autumn Oaks Event Center, we felt like it was not only important to have a beautiful gated entrance, but a beautiful building inside and out. Nothing I love better than to drive up to a place of business and think,Wow,this is really pretty”.  Guests can be dropped off at the front door under a covered porte cochere where they will enter into the lovely decorated lobby. Our restrooms are conveniently located off of the lobby which also opens up into our spacious reception hall. We love this room because it has a lot of windows and glass French doors to allow plenty of natural light to shine through. The many French doors open out into a beautifully landscaped courtyard with a covered wrap around porch. What a perfect place to set up tables and chairs and take advantage of the outdoor space.  Most importantly we can’t forget about the food. The catering kitchen and separate serving room located right off the reception hall were also designed with weddings in mind. Your caterer will not only love the prep kitchen, but also the serving room. It allows for two or three serving lines to be going at once so the guests are not standing in line forever to get food. Gotta love that!


As you have read, we are very proud and excited about bringing our venue to Lubbock,Tx and surrounding communities and would love for you to be a part of Autumn Oaks Event Center. Be sure and check out our virtual tour and take a walk through our beautiful indoor/outdoor event center.
