Spanning 10,000 miles of rolling hills dotted with winding rivers and sparkling lakes, the Texas Hill Country is one of the state’s—and, more recently, the entire nation’s—favorite spots for easygoing, elegant, fun-filled destination weddings. And it’s easy to understand why. First, there’s the expansive green landscape, which becomes a riot of color each spring when Indian paintbrushes, buttercups and much-beloved bluebonnets cover the gentle rises of this scenic region. Then there are the quaint towns, filled with gracious inns, lovely shops, barbecue joints and brewpubs, and tons of historic sites, from legendary Texas dancehalls to 19th-century farms to mansions-turned-museums. The Texas wine country, meanwhile, continues to grow in popularity (and in wine quality), with many wineries offering tours, tastings—even on-site accommodations, and private-dining options for unique rehearsal dinners and engagement parties. 

But it’s the wide range of wedding venues in the Texas Hill Country that are the real draw of this coveted destination. Looking for a picture-perfect historic colonial chapel, complete with an antique wedding bell? Does your dream reception take place inside a gleaming grand hall, with soaring ceilings, sparkling crystal chandeliers, and a dance floor as big as all of Texas? Maybe you’re envisioning a resort-style wedding, with championship golf, tons of activities to entertain your guests, and a luxurious on-site spa, where you and the girls can relax and reconnect? You’ll find all of these, plus proximity to San Antonio and Austin—two of the state’s liveliest, most fun-filled cities—at these 4 gorgeous Texas Hill Country wedding venues.
