I remember the very first day I went to scope out the Villa for my wedding venue. My Dad happened to be in town and came with me, and I recall him turning to me after Jennifer had taken us on a tour of the facility and saying, "Now this - THIS is a place your guests are never going to forget."
And how true that was!! About a year and a half later, I got married on a beautiful May day at Villa Antonia. And to this day (almost 5 months after the wedding!), I STILL have friends and family that email me or call me and tell me how memorable and amazing the day was.
Villa Antonia is absolutely breathtaking and beautiful. If you are considering a wedding style that is more romantic (vs. edgy or modern), you simply cannot beat this location. On top of that, it is located in the incredible hill country of Austin -- as though you are taking your family and guests to a little oasis of beauty that they will think cannot possibly be in Texas.
Beyond just the facility, I have to say that when you sign up with the Villa, you truly feel supported by each member of the staff there. My husband and I were overjoyed and overwhelmed by the incredible support and attention to detail that Ms. Chris Spady - the venue coordinator - provided for us. She was as excited about our wedding as we were, and even 5 months later, she STILL reaches out to us to ask us how we are doing. (Now please tell me that is not extraordinary???!)
Chris was an absolute angel on the day of the event; she was so calm and organized; I didn't have to worry about a single thing. And more than that - she was a stable foundation for me to lean on when I was nervous or anxious about something going wrong. I remember I was scared I would trip over my dress down the beautiful "long walk" ...until I saw Chris at the end smiling at me. I felt like I could finally take a deep breath and smile and take it all in.
There is so much I could write about the Villa, but good gracious, I have written so much already! Let me just say to any bride/groom reading this: I can guarantee you WITHOUT A DOUBT IN MY MIND that if you have your wedding at the Villa, it will be a day that reminds you of love, beauty, and happy memories.

Villa Antonia is gorgeous! And in addition to allowing the bride and her loved ones to endure all 19,000 sqft of luscious greenery, flower-laced paths and an abundance of picture perfect photo opportunities, It provides more amenities than most venues. The whole team treats you and your family like their own family.
Ms. Chris is a fantastic host and ensures that all of your needs are met for your special day. She fit right in with my family and ensured all ran smoothly. She was more than accommodating to our schedule and my crazy family's requests.
The vendors they recommend are all 5 stars in my opinion. The list of vendors caters to all budgets and styles.
It was storming on our wedding day, and although we were unable to be married on the Lake view Terrace due to the inclement weather, the whole team and vendor staff worked quickly and diligently to piece all the special details together in the chapel for an intimate (and dry) ceremony that will for sure be remembered.
A few small details were missed, but all in all, we couldn't have asked for a better venue, a better team to host or a more family like staff of professionals to ensure our day was just as fate had planned it-Perfectly Imperfect.

I had a wonderful experience with Villa Antonia from start to finish. Jennifer did such a great job showing us the beautiful venue and answering all our questions. Then Chris was on top of getting information to and from me and coordinating with the vendors in a timely manner.The day of she and Maria were there whenever I needed them and treated my husband and I like royalty. My wedding turned out more beautiful than I ever imagined and ran so smoothly thanks to their help. Even after the wedding my man of honor accidentally left our personalized flutes at the venue. Chris held on to them for me until I was able to retrieve them without it being a problem. I would definitely recommend Villa Antonia to anyone!

Villa Antonia was the perfect venue for our wedding! We had a smaller wedding (about 50 guests), and VA was just the right size so that everything felt intimate without being too squeezed in. The views were amazing and the venue itself is just gorgeous. It's like having your own Italian villa for the day and it feels like you've been transported to Tuscany! We even had a couple of guests from Italy and they were impressed with the place, so you know it's legit. The wedding coordinators, Ms. Chris and Maria were awesome - they went above and beyond our expectations and made sure that everything was taken care of. The venue is a bit far from Austin, but it's totally worth it because of the views and the ambiance. So don't hesitate to book Villa Antonia for your event - we highly recommend it!

Villa Antonia helped make my dream wedding come true. The venue is so breathtaking and beautiful that my guests were all amazed and in awe. The pictures came out like a story book wedding! It's like your in an Italian castle in the heart of Austin Hill Country. They have so many rooms and vast space with lush greenery and elegant touches that my guests were taking their own pictures of themselves for keepsakes.
But what impressed me the most was the staff. They went above and beyond to make our wedding spectacular. The wedding coordinators Chris and Maria went out of their way to get everything logistically working smoothly. It even rained so at the last moment they moved our outdoor wedding into the chapel for an intimate and very romantic ceremony. You do not need to hire a wedding coordinator if you go with the Villa because their team did more than I ever expected.
One the big benefits of using the Villa is that you can use your own caterer and get your alcohol from Specs which brings down your food and drink costs.
Only drawback is that the venue is 40 min from downtown Austin. So we hired a shuttle bus so there would be no drinking and driving. But the shuttle bus trip made things super fun for our guests. They all keep emailing and calling saying it was the best wedding they ever went to!
Thank you to the Villa and your staff for making our dream wedding come true!

Thank you for making my wedding day such a smooth event! Staff were very nice and helpful; set up was perfect, coordinators kept everything moving very smoothly, and clean up was a breeze. Beautiful venue - every one commented on its beauty, and the pictures were phenomenal. Fantastic place to get married; I highly recommend it.

I cannot begin to describe how amazing our experience was with Villa Antonia. As for the venue itself, it is absolutely gorgeous. Everyone kept saying it was one of the most beautiful venues they had ever seen. However, the real treasure at Villa Antonia is the coordinator, Shelley Gay and her team. During planning meetings she was beyond helpful and worked to accommodate every request. On the day of our wedding she took amazing to a new level. We planned a mostly outdoor wedding and reception in March in Texas, expecting that meant weather in the 70s. Unfortunately, what we got was a cold front, which brought 45 degrees and torrential rain (which luckily stopped right before our wedding). When we arrived at the venue it was pouring, and we were met by girls carrying two umbrellas to escort us inside. Shelley also worked to seamlessly move our outdoor ceremony into the beautiful chapel and everything went smoothly. Also, as I was about to walk down the aisle we realized I had forgotten my bouquet in the (gorgeous) bridal suite. Shelley threw off her heels and sprinted to get it for me, quick enough that no one even realized there was a delay. On our wedding day, I was 100% calm as I have ever been and I attribute most of that to Shelley and her team. I could go on and on about this venue, and I hope I can think of an excuse to have another event at the Villa just so I will have the opportunity to work with these amazing women again. I highly recommend this venue, without reserve for your big day! You will not be disappointed!
