Hill Country weddings at La Cantera Resort & Spa have everything you want in a destination wedding (relaxation, gorgeous views, activities aplenty, accommodations for all your loved ones, picturesque outdoor areas, well-appointed indoor spaces, top-tier catering and service staff), at a destination a short three hours’ drive from Houston.

La Cantera is also one of the most versatile Hill Country wedding venues there is, with plenty of spots of intimate rustic-elegant weddings, as well as space for 750+ revelers, if that’s your thing! Here’s what we love about this romantic San Antonio resort:

The Grand Ballroom – With 17,000 square feet of celebration space that includes sweeping golf course views and an outdoor terrace, this is the spot for big, beautiful weddings at La Cantera.

The Outdoor Spaces – From the hidden-garden charm of Emily’s Rose Courtyard, to the cozy fireplace and private bar of the Primero Terrace, to the lush, green spread of the 6,000-square-foot Esparza Lawn, La Cantera has plenty of spots to celebrate your “I do’s” with the lovely Hill Country landscape as your backdrop.

The Spa – A secluded sanctuary set upon one of the highest points in the Texas Hill Country, La Cantera’s Loma de Vida Spa offers everything from massage to signature body treatments and facials, plus hair styling services, luxury mani-pedis and more.

The Tons & Tons Of Stuff To Do – Whether your wedding group is into golf, swimming, tennis, nature-exploration or luxuriating poolside in a private cabana, you’ll find all of these activities at La Cantera (plus a daily Kids’ Camp for the little ones), without ever leaving the resort grounds! Want to explore historic San Antonio with your Hill Country destination wedding guests? Talk to your La Cantera wedding expert about planning a jaunt to the nearby San Antonio Riverwalk, the San Antonio Zoo or the historic Alamo.

While they met in 2010 as athletes attending the same college, it wasn’t until Brian mentioned the film “Why Did I Get Married?” on Twitter that he and Stephanie had their first real conversation. A friendship ensued, followed by a long courtship, until July 4th, 2017, when Brian proposed to Stephanie, surrounded by his closest family members. Amidst laughs, games, food and fireworks, Brian sat playing cards with gathered guests, “as I was cluelessly scrolling through Facebook,” Stephanie says. “Little did I know the whole family was watching my every move,” as Brian waited for the right moment to pop the question.
