Couples can find this mansion 15 minutes from the Government Canyon State Natural Area, 30 minutes outside of downtown San Antonio.
Facilities and Capacity
Up to 200 guests can celebrate with couples when they host their wedding at the Gardens in Old Town Helotes. Ceremonies take place outside at the end of a stone pathway under a white pergola draped with translucent white linens. Receptions can take place on the six-acre property of the venue or inside the mansion. Outdoor ceremonies can include tables set up on the grass or the gravelly stone patio area under strings of overhead lights. For indoor receptions, couples will find a space with high ceilings, wood floors and recessed lights to take over once the sun goes down outside the mansion’s many windows.
The staff at this venue help couples with their wedding day details. This is done through the services offered by the venue, which include event planning and event rental services in addition to lighting and sound assistance. Event rentals include necessary items for the couple’s big day such as chairs and linens.
In a little cottage outside of the mansion, a large space serves as a bridal dressing room area for couples and members of the wedding party prior to the day’s festivities. This room features cathedral ceilings, a red accent wall and separate mirrored countertops with sinks and a stool for getting ready.

Picture Perfect Venue!
When I got engaged last January, Garden's at Old Town was one of my first location picks! They were nearby; but tucked away just enough that you felt like you were out in nature--I ended up booking them 4 days after getting engaged!Sent on 11/19/2019
From the moment we went for our first tour, they were nothing but helpful! Answering all questions we had, and giving us information on things we had yet to think of--they were even welcoming when I stopped by numerous times with family members who were in from out of town so they could help with decor ideas!
The venue offers heaters for rent, which was needed when it became uncharacteristically cool in the middle of October-->it was great to know they had those on hand, when temps dropped below 50.
The bridal suite is gorgeous, and provided the perfect place for us girls' to finish getting ready, and keep a few drinks and snacks to get us through the pre-ceremony photos.
While the ground weren't used by guests as much as I thought they would be, the spacious grass area, beautiful bridges and water features are what truly sold me on this location. I CANNOT wait to get my photos back and see how the swing and bridge photos turned out.
This was an overall great experience, and I'd recommend the Garden's to anyone local looking for a beautiful, and cost effective venue.

We fell in love with this venue upon our visit during an open house. Immediately we were able to envision our wedding day. Vicki was very helpful and informative, we booked during our first visit. We were able to contact Vicki with any questions and received a timely response each time. Gardens of Old Town Helotes exceeded our expectations. Our wedding day was beautiful! Everyone enjoyed their time and have given us nothing but compliments.
They gave us a gift, a box of cereal churros to ensure we had our churros! They remembered our engagement story and this gift meant alot to us!
Thank you Vicki for all your support and advise! We have beautiful memories!

By the way, I NEED that cookie recipe - they were amazing!!!
