We just had our dream wedding ceremony at The Amala Sanctuary, and everything was so beautiful and just what we had envisioned! We worked with several different  folks through the foundation to plan the big day, and everyone we communicated with was so kind and helpful. We really couldn’t be more pleased with how it all turned out, and our out of town guests were wowed by the beauty and uniqueness of the space. If you are looking for truly  magical oasis in Austin that benefits a great cause, the Sanctuary is perfect!
