This place, you guys…THIS PLACE. First off, there’s the view, which is, in a word, awesome. As in, you are literally filed with awe as you look around from pretty much any spot on the property, since it’s perched on the highest ridge in the Dripping Springs area. That’s just one of the appeals of The Terrace Club. Here are a few more:

It’s all-inclusive. “You get the catering, coordinators, venue, tables, chairs, linens, centerpieces (we have about 16 different choices), decorations, setup, decorating, take-down and cleanup, cake-cutting services, Champagne butlering services, all dinnerware, and more, all included in the per-person price, plus the ability to customize your menu from scratch with our caterers,” explains Terrace Club owner Hunter Connor. “We handle everything for our clients, allowing the couple and their family and friends to be able to sit back and let the professionals do everything else.”

It’s surrounded by great activities. Since you’ll likely want to spend a few days celebrating with your guests at your Hill Country destination wedding (just take a sec and repeat that phrase a few times in your mind— “My Hill Country destination wedding…” “My Hill Country destination wedding…” “My Hill Country destination wedding…”), it’s nice to know that The Terrace Club is located in a perfect spot to take advantage of nearby excursions and activities. “We’re next door to the Deep Eddy vodka distillery, which is such a neat place to bring groups to enjoy some adult beverages and play lawn games in their outdoor space,” Connor says. Plus, “There are a ton of breweries and wineries out here, and we are only about 20-40 minutes or so from so many neat little towns like Wimberley and Fredericksburg, and many outdoor options like Jacob’s Well and Hamilton Pool, if you want to see the local natural swimming holes. There is so much to do out here that most couples who are doing a destination-style wedding have all of their guests stay out here, and everyone is easily entertained the entire weekend.” Done.

It’s available, and beautiful, year-round. “In the summer, even though it’s hot, the sunsets are spectacular…and we offer discounts for peak summer months,” Connor says (scroll down for more on summer discounts!). “In the spring and fall, the weather is cooler, the sunsets are remarkable, and you can enjoy outdoor activities since it’s not so hot. In the winter, we can use really cool lighting techniques to have after-sunset ceremonies, and we can do nice things for guests, like fire pits and s’mores. There really isn’t a bad season at The Terrace Club.”

It’s a bargain. While regular weekend wedding rates are already an excellent deal at The Terrace Club, right now, you’ll get 20% off of your entire invoice for any July or August dates, and you’ll always get a discounts for any Friday or Sunday date, no matter what month you’re planning to wed!

It’s no secret how much we here at HWB love Hill Country weddings—like Jana & Buddy’s, Lauren & Zach’s, Juli & Kyle’s…and on and on. But did you know what a great resource Hill Country is for other wonderful wedding stuff, besides scenic venues?
Along with the allure of Austin, the area’s international influences and the recent boom in winemaking have made it a mecca for gourmands, gastronomes and folks who just plain crave true Texas flavor. Fortunately for us, this renowned region is right in our backyard. We highly recommend scouting Hill Country for welcome-basket goodies, dessert-table treats and take-home favors that will give your wedding guests a taste of Texas that is as sweet to look upon as it is delicious to devour. Our faves include Austin’s ridiculously adorablicious (yeah, we made it up) Tiny Pies and favor-sensation Gracious Bridal (they do edibles as well as non–with packaging to die for). ‘Course for down-home delish, nothing beats Fredericksburg’s Rustlin’ Robs–who, after all, can resist zippy Black-Eyed Pea Relish or perfect Pecan Pie Filling-in-a-Jar? Take to the hills, Houston bride!
