Destination: Hill Country

What isn't there to love about the Texas Hill Country? From the gorgeous hills, beautiful wildflowers, lush oak trees, and the southern charm, the Texas Hill Country offers so much as a fantastic destination for weddings.

The Lodge at Bridal Veil Falls is located right in the heart of it all. We're just 26 miles from San Antonio, 34 miles from Boerne, 28 miles from New Braunfels, 29 miles from San Marcos, 50 miles from Fredericksburg, and 62 miles from Austin.

If you have a lot of out-of-town guests, they are sure to love how convenient we are to so many different cities, all unique and offering different attractions. From wine tours in Fredericksburg to shopping the outlet malls in San Marcos, to soaking up the rich history and culture of San Antonio, or taking a drive over to Austin to enjoy the "Live Music Capital of the World." And if the outdoors is more of their thing, there's plenty of hiking options, rivers for kayaking and floating, and of course the lakes where they can stay cool and enjoy water sports. There truly is something for everyone.

If you're thinking about a Hill Country wedding, consider making suggestions to your guests of activities they can experience either leading up to or following the big day!

Wedding Guest Book Alternatives

Gone are the days of cookie-cutter weddings! Every weekend we are amazed at the creativity of our brides in all of the details they bring to personalize their event! From the time their guests step into the venue they are welcomed by amazing details. One of the first things most guests see is the guestbook or these days the alternative to the traditional guestbook. We have seen so many unique ideas and thought we'd share some of our favorites.
