Couples can get lost in a classic country fairytale when they choose the Gardens at Old Town Helotes; a mansion in the San Antonio, Texas area, for their wedding. This venue has scenic country views with live oak trees on the property and a mansion for receptions. 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.

We couldn't have asked for a better venue or staff for our wedding. The area was beautiful and well-maintained. Vicki, the venue manager, went above and beyond in everything. She was always there to suggest vendors or to listen to ideas. She never made us feel like we were pains and was quick to get in touch and stay in touch. She managed our wedding day and made everything go so smoothly while making sure we were taken care of. I feel she became part of our family. Gardens is a beautiful venue but Vicki is their number one selling point!Sent on 09/05/2013

Absolutely amazing staff and site
Vicki and her team at GOTH were ABSOLUTELY AMAZING. First off, they are incredibly friendly and easy to work with. She answered every email and question I sent her way throughout our year of planning. The venue space is BEAUTIFUL and offers so much with the outdoor and indoor options. We had our ceremony and reception at this site. Furthermore, the bridal suite was SO useful the day of. It is incredibly spacious and very clean, our entire wedding party of 10 fit in there very comfortably. They had GREAT recommendations for vendors they had worked with and truly made our special day so great! We could not have asked for a better venue and highly recommend this place and their team.Sent on 12/10/2018

Beautiful venue!!! This was the easiest choice to make for our wedding. Vicki was always responsive. I loved that this venue was open about what companies to hire. We didnt have to follow a strict list of vendors and this allowed us to maintain our budget. I would get married there a million times over, hopefully one time's a charm though.
This venue offers the below options which may impact pricing:
It's important as a video/photo professional to have beautiful locations and customer service. Gardens at Old Town Helotes brings these two together and provides a gorgeous setup for your indoor/outdoor events, highly recommended. Infinity Video & Photo 210-744-5566 www.infinityweddings.com
