The Venue: A Weekend in the Hill Country


The goal for our wedding was to have a laid back celebratory weekend with our favorite people in the world, in one of our favorite places in the world—the Texas Hill Country. After looking at a handful of venues that


didn’t feel right (too fancy, too far away from things, didn’t capture our vision of the Hill Country, too ‘wedding’ feeling, too Texas kitsch, too many rules), we stumbled upon Canyon Lake Cabins & Cottages. It was exactly what we were looking for. We went to visit with both sets of parents and a few friends and quickly realized that it was the perfect place. Canyon Lake Cabins & Cottages is a


fi ve-acre property that overlooks Canyon Lake, about 20 miles West of I-35 between San Antonio and Austin. It sits on the vast web of farm-to-market roads we used to ride our bikes on in college, where our relationship developed. On the property sit 25 cabins and cottages. With people spread out, it can hold about 85. Stuffed to the gills, it’s more like 185. We had access to the Outback Hall all


weekend, which has a full kitchen, a large hall, and a patio with a beer trough and one of the biggest grills you’ve ever seen. The property has a pool, a beach volleyball court, a bocce ball court, horseshoes, basketball, a ton of picnic space, and upwards of 20 charcoal grills spread throughout the property. Because we wanted to spend as much


time with our wedding guests as possible, we began the festivities on Friday evening, running through the wedding Saturday evening, to Sunday morning breakfast. We couldn’t


think of anything better than


getting our favorite people together for 48 hours of celebration.
