About Thistlewood Manor & Gardens

Extraordinary. Elegant. Events.

If timeless Elegance is in your dreams, look no further! This gorgeous ballroom with its grand staircase, amazing chandeliers, and marble-like floors provide a magical place for your dream wedding reception. 

We are now entering our third year of being ‘open for business.’ Wow! It has simply been amazing to partake in this process. Serving guests, making beautiful events - and especially getting to be part of a couple's wedding day is what we are passionate about here.  

This romantic venue is simply gorgeous - classy and elegant, but wonderfully comfortable. Whether you are looking for a venue with almost everything provided onsite, or you have a favorite caterer already, Thistlewood's flexible plans will work for you.  For many, though, our customizable plans are perfect, providing guidance and peace for a stress-less wedding planning experience.  Our guests say the FOOD and the SERVICE are "unexpected," "spectacular," and their "guests are still raving" about it all. Come see what they're talking about.  

You will also love our amazing growing landscape and gardens - with many ceremony options from which to choose. There is plenty of room there for fun wedding games, too. We would love to meet you and hear your story and dreams.  It would be our pleasure to serve you, so do come for a visit soon.

Such a beautiful venue, my wedding felt so elegant and amazing. Tricia and Leslie are so easy to work with and are so helpful. The easiness of planning our big day was so effortless because they do so much to help you depending on the option you choose. Although they are all affordable. I highly recommend this venue and this team.

Wow! My husband and I couldn't be happier with our decision to have our wedding at Thistlewood Manor. Tricia and Leslie went above and beyond in every possible situation, and by our actual wedding day, they felt like a part of our family. They took every opportunity to "wow" us with their decor choices, willingness to talk through all of our decisions, and overall thoughtfulness and creativity. They took on every detail with so much care! Not to mention the venue is absolutely stunning, inside and out. The gardens are constantly being updated, and new things are blooming every day! And inside the mansion, the marble floors, columns, and chandeliers have such a unique, elegant look that is hard to find in the rustic Texas hill country. Their packages make it easy to plan a wedding at an excellent value, such as the ability to add on day-of coordinating, linen and glassware rentals, and catering (yum!) at very reasonable prices. My favorite item of theirs is the decor closet - we spent so much less on decorations by accessing their decor closet! I highly recommend throwing your wedding, work event, rehearsal dinner, ANYTHING at Thistlewood Manor, and I'm sure it'll be a spectacular affair!
