    The San Antonio Botanical Gardens provided a beautiful setting for our wedding. We had the ceremony at the conservatory and the reception in the arbor area around the fountains. Our guests really enjoyed having the opportunity to walk around the gardens before and after the ceremony; many had never visited the gardens before so it was an added bonus to our guests. We chose this venue because it was where we had one of our first dates, and the price was more reasonable than others we had looked at. The event coordinator Shimeyka was very sweet and was very responsive with all my questions via email. I would definitely recommend this venue to any future brides who are wanting a garden/outdoor wedding, it's beautiful. Just be aware that you will have to use their preferred vendors because the gardens want people who are familiar with the grounds. I had no problems with any of the vendors listed, all were wonderful.
