The central Texas countryside is known for its untouched natural beauty, charming small towns, and one-of-a-kind scenery — just some of the things that make Hill Country weddings so special. This region is full of hidden gems, from secluded grottos and swimming holes along the Colorado River, to the winding dirt roads and fields of bluebonnets that fill the landscape in the summer. If you couldn't tell already, Texas Hill Country weddings are basically like living in a dream!

If you're getting hitched in central Texas, here are some of our favorite Hill Country weddings and ideas from real couples.

The Venue: Ma Maison

This gorgeous 23-acre property strikes the perfect balance between European elegance and Southern hospitality. French for "my house," Ma Maison offers five unique event spaces for Hill Country weddings, with both indoor and outdoor options. The Grove, pictured above, is the wedding venue's most popular location for ceremonies, and it's easy to see why. Another favorite spot at Ma Maison is the Green Cathedral—an authentic, reclaimed antique gazebo from France that makes the perfect backdrop for an intimate outdoor ceremony or first look.

The Venue: Prospect House

If you're searching for a modern, trendy wedding venue in Texas Hill Country, there's no better spot than Prospect House. The giant gallery-inspired building sits on a hilltop in scenic Dripping Springs, just 25 minutes outside of Austin. Prospect House is one of the best venues for Hill Country weddings if your style is more artistic than rustic. The ceremony lawn (pictured above) offers unbeatable views of the Texas hills, but there's also an airy banquet hall with high ceilings and exposed rafters, in addition to a breezeway and getting ready rooms.
