posted on August 12, 2022

Tying the knot in the Austin or San Antonio area? You’re not the only one! Sitting about 80 miles apart, these two cities are slated to become the next mega metroplex – brimming with inventive eateries, shops, music and entertainment that measure up to the hype. What’s not to love? 

For couples who are hosting their nuptials there, the Austin and San Antonio regions have even more to offer by way of incredible venues that showcase the best of the Lone Star State. From rustic, country-inspired spaces to cinematic settings engulfed by nature, our portfolio of wedding venues has something for everyone. Whatever your style and aesthetic may be, chances are, you’ll find a setting you’ll love for your big day. Here are a few standout venue styles to find in the Texas Hill Country region. And if you need help deciding, our Wedding Specialist can help match you with your perfect venue!

1. Modern Barn

With its eye-catching black exterior, Morgan Creek Barn in Dripping Springs boasts a contemporary design approach to an otherwise traditional aesthetic. In other words, this isn’t your textbook barn; here, you’ll find a delightful marriage of modern elegance and rustic chic. Inside, whitewashed paneled walls, a soaring ceiling, tiered black-iron chandeliers and a floor-to-ceiling window wall lend the ceremony space an undoubtedly fresh and airy ambiance. What’s more: The venue is set in Texas Hill Country’s lush landscape, making it feel like it’s a hundred miles away from the hustle of the city. In reality, it’s only a short drive away from Austin’s bounty of activities, meaning you and your guests can easily turn your wedding weekend into a true, fun-filled getaway.

2. Rustic Chic

The humble beauty of a rustic chic aesthetic is something that a lot of couples seek for their wedding day. Enter The Milestone at Boerne. Hand-hewn hardwood floors, pine-paneled walls and open beam trussed ceilings are all a part of the look. Bonus: there’s even a grand oak staircase that begs for a dramatic entrance. All of this is set on an undulating grassy knoll with views aplenty. For a more cozy, traditional charm, look no further than the Stonehaven Hall at The Milestone New Braunfels. Mixing warm wood and natural stone accents, the venue is a wonderful example of rustic romance. Add to that its natural setting – towering trees and open fields as far as the eye can see – and you have yourself a fairytale escape.

3. Modern & industrial

For those seeking the essence of a farmhouse aesthetic, The Milestone in Georgetown offers a perfect balance of country and contemporary. Whitewashed shiplap walls and broad windows welcome in ample light, and lend simplicity and natural beauty to the space. We’d also be remiss not to mention the scenic views; the venue sits on 40 acres just above the San Gabriel River. The farmhouse styling also runs deep at Legacy Hall at The Milestone New Braunfels. Think: neutral palettes and crisp whites, light-wood floors, and hints of metal. Whichever venue you opt for, you’ll find a clean, modern design that still allows the warm texture of natural materials to shine through.

4. Nature inspired

The outdoors can have a soothing effect on many – so why not bring that calming energy to your wedding? Hayes Hollow at Hidden Falls gives couples the option to choose a ceremony site that best suits their needs. Whether in front of its waterfall, under the lush foliage of hundred-year-old oak trees or near the fireplace under the outdoor pavilion, the natural landscape teems with opportunity. At Remi’s Ridge at Hidden Falls, say your “I dos” by the foot of a scenic waterfall or under the canopy of towering trees. For added convenience, both locations offer on-site lodging, allowing guests to attend the weekend celebrations knowing their accommodations are only a short walk away. But these are only a few examples; our Texas Hill Country Collection venues are all set in postcard-worthy green spaces that make the most out of nature’s beauty.
