1 . Trois Estate At Enchanted Rock

Fredericksburg, Texas

CALL DIRECT: +1 (866) 593 - 3014

WEBSITE

While our Top 10 Wedding Destination Resorts list spotlights beyond-imaginable wedding retreats on tropical islands, in the mountains and at pre-Civil War venues, our No. 1 choice just couldn’t be beat. Located in gorgeous Texas Hill Country, Trois Estate at Enchanted Rock is completely different – and completely unforgettable.

Hand-built to reflect the ancient architecture of a Santa Fe-style adobe village and the romantic ambiance of a seaside Tuscan village, Trois Estate breaks the mold when it comes to romantic rendezvous. Here, you and yours can exchange vows in a small, candlelit cathedral decorated only by a small cluster of age-old wooden pews and antique marble fireplace. Don’t fret if your family can’t fit in the 50-person church, however, because Trois Estate’s Old World courtyard and event hall can hold groups up to 300. The rooftop veranda and wine bar is yet another wedding venue option at this European-style estate, and once you see the gorgeous panoramic views of the surrounding Hill Country and the pink-hued Enchanted Rock rising from the landscape off in the distance, you won’t want to be anywhere else!

Highlights

Have your reception on the rooftop and you’ll be blown away by the stunning views of Enchanted Rock – the second largest granite monadnock, or isolated rock hill, in the United States.

Getting there

From Hwy. 290/Main Street, head west down Main Street. Look for the brown sign reading, “Enchanted Rock State park 17 miles.” Take a right on Milam Street (Ranch Road 965). You will cross two cattle guards on R.R. 965, then you will see an adobe gate entrance with two lions on the posts on the right side of the road. The gate spells Trois in antlers. Push the call button on the wall to open the gate to Trois Estate at Enchanted Rock.
