You are standing at an antique marble fireplace mantle and the smiling faces of family and friends fill the dark wooden pews. The flicker of candlelight bounces off the cathedral’s individual stones. This is not a deep catacomb in Italy – it’s the idyllic setting for your Texas Hill Country wedding!

Trois Estate at Enchanted Rock delivers a wedding as elegant as its name, which is why it’s our No. 1 pick! Enchanted Rock itself, one of the world’s largest batholiths, is the magnificent backdrop to your wedding reception on the Rooftop Terrace. It is well worth it to find an opportunity to indulge in the fine Italian dining and a glass of excellent wine at Troisi’s Ristorante. Stroll through the smooth adobe-style Artisan Market where old-world charm greets you in the crafts and collectibles. Brides and grooms should also squeeze in a little R&R before or after the wedding at the European Day Spa. Swim together in the healing waters of the private grotto or relax during a massage surrounded by deep red and gold colors. Trois Estate merges the classic beauty of Italy with the rugged beauty of the Texas Hill Country for a truly unique wedding destination!

The European Day Spa was featured as the “Spa for Couples” in Spafinder.
