Book Your Wedding with Granberry Hills Event Facility
A BALLROOM IN SAN ANTONIO, TX
Granberry Hills is an idyllic special event facility set on 11 acres just 15 minutes from downtown San Antonio, Texas. With two distinct buildings that can accommodate hundreds of guests each, you and your party will feel like you're in your own world for your special day. The grounds offer plenty of beautiful places to take your wedding pictures, too, including romantic outdoor spots for a first-look photograph in front of a fountain or some of the facility's decorative landscaping. Granberry Hills is a favorite of happy couples who have named the venue as one of the best in the area, landing Granberry Hills on a variety of 'Best Of' lists, including the Knot's 'Best of Weddings' list.
Granberry Hills offers two venues for weddings, helping to keep things simple while still giving couples the power to choose what's right for them.
The Hillside area is the larger of the two spaces at Granberry Hills, providing room for up to 350 people for both ceremonies and receptions. The center of this space is the 5,000-square-foot ballroom, which features soaring vaulted ceilings and a glittering crystal chandelier as its centerpiece. You and your guests will enjoy lovely views of the manicured grounds from the large floor-to-ceiling windows of the ballroom, which is fully climate controlled. You can choose to have your ceremony out in the open air on the grounds or in the Hillside Covered Pavilion, which has ceiling fans to help keep your guests comfortable as vows are exchanged on the pavilion's raised altar stage. The spacious Hillside area also features a charming wrap-around porch for your guests to mingle during a cocktail reception before or after the ceremony.
The Gardenside area is a bit smaller than the Hillside space, but it's nonetheless generously proportioned, offering room for as many as 290 guests. You and your guests can enjoy an outdoor ceremony in the Arbor area of the Gardenside space for a 'secret garden' feel as you exchange your vows. If you'd rather have a roof over your head while you say your vows, the Gardenside Pavilion offers an open-air covered space with ceiling fans. This space can also handle a reception for as many as 100 guests. If you plan to have more guests, the ballroom in the Gardenside area has plenty of space for 290, with vaulted ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows helping to create an elegant ambiance.
What You Should Know
The Hillside Ballroom and Gardenside facilities are two separate entities on the property, so even if there are other events happening on site, your ceremony and reception will feel private and special. Each of the buildings has indoor-outdoor spaces, with open-air pavilions opening up to landscaped lawn space and connecting to indoor space as well.
Granberry Hills does not provide its own catering services. Though you'll be able to choose, your selection will have to come from the venue's own list of approved caterers. The venue does provide bartenders and security for an additional fee, but you will have to provide your own alcohol. All events that include alcohol must have on-site security. The venue provides a variety of budget-friendly options to help keep costs down, allowing couples to configure a wedding experience that works well for their needs.
Granberry Hills' staff of talented wedding coordinators will help you with every step of the planning process. This particular feature has couples on the Knot gushing in their five-star reviews, making it a particularly attractive feature for this elegant ceremony and reception venue.
Your wedding package at Granberry Hills includes the following perks at no extra cost:
- Suites to use for ceremony and reception prep
- On-site event management staff during your celebration

My husband and I had an easy choice in deciding where to get married - Granberry. Within minutes of our first meeting with Courtney at Granberry, we knew this was the place we wanted. From the extremely friendly and professional staff, to the gorgeous facilities it was all that we wanted. Additionally, we had looked at other places but the biggest thing that deterred us from those places was the pricing. For the price at Granberry, you get so much more and a lot less to worry about in prepping for you wedding. All of the granberry staff was there along the way to answer all of our questions and show guidance. Being two males, we also had to make sure everyone involved was comfortable, and at Granberry there was never a moment where I felt different than another other couple. I will highly suggest Granberry as the venue to get married at for all of my family and friends! Thank you Courtney and Natalie and all the granberry staff! It was the best day of my life!
Granberry Hills is an absolutely beautiful venue. We held our wedding ceremony and reception on the hillside which was absolutely perfect. All of the staff are so sweet and helpful at all times! They are all so willing to assist with smiles on their faces. The venue assigns a coordinator which is absolutely wonderful! Our coordinator Natalie took very very good care of us from begining to end. All the answers to many questions, and all the suggestions and input made things much simpler! Day of wedding went so smoothly Natalie took care of absolutely everything all we had to do was follow and enjoy our special day. I highly recommend granberry to not only be the place to hold your special event but to be the place that takes care of you with your special event. We love them thank you all for helping us with such a beautiful and important day of our lives !
Couldn't be happier!Reviewed on 11/10/2015 Heather J
Words can't describe how happy we are with our selection of Granberry Hills! From start to finish they were absolutely phenomenal! Our coordinator was Courtney and oh my gosh...without her I don't want to even think of how we would have survived our wedding night! She was amazing and kept everything running smoothly. We had an amazing experience and if you are looking for a beautiful venue with great customer service then Granberry Hills is the place for you!! I don't have a single regret!
Had a spectacular wedding due to the diligent and professional planning of their staff. Couldn't have asked for a better venue in the San Antonio area. I highly recommend.
Had a beautiful wedding and reception!! Wedding coordinator and staff were very helpful and always answered my emails and questions promptly! The whole experience was wonderful from the open house all the way to my wedding day! I recommend this place to everyone that has asked!
My husband and I Had our wedding on hillside it was beyond beautiful!! Natalie was our coordinator and she exceeded our expectations she went completely beyond for us not only was she a wonderful help but as well as all of the girls there. Everyone is so friendly and willing to help! They always called and checked up on us and made my dream wedding come true! Loved Our Wedding!!!
Granberry Hills was the perfect venue for my husband and I. The coordinators on staff helped our special day go without a single problem! It was awesome to not have to worry about the little things. Teresa, our coordinator, had amazing attention to detail and was on top of everything. Definitely recommend!!
My Wife and I didn’t have to think twice about Granberry Hills. When we first saw the Gardenside we knew that is where we wanted to get married! The staff at Granberry made it so easy and effortless to have a dream wedding! There are so many options when it comes to the ballrooom and almost everything is customizable. We would do it all over again if we could! Thank you Granberry and your staff for making our dream day come true.
Everyone there was able and willing to help make our special day everything we dreamed of. Even when things got a bit confusing, they accommodated us with exactly what we wanted. Courtney was an amazing day of coordinator and took care of everything and made sure we didn’t have to worry about a thing so we could be relaxed and enjoy every moment of the best day of our lives!
My husband and I searched and searched for a venue that had a rustic feel but wasn't too far outside of San Antonio. Granberry Hills was the perfect venue and accomplished all of the necessities on my wedding venue checklist. The staff was always available to answer any questions and was super flexible with setting meetings. The fact that they do all of the set-up was a huge selling point and made our lives so much easier and less stressful. I'd recommend this venue to anyone!
We had our wedding here at the Gardenside on Oct 6 2017. Everything was beautiful and went so smoothly thanks to our coordinator, Shalamar. Affordable and beautiful. Highly recommend!
Where to begin granberry hills was amazing through my whole planning process I was that bride who called at least once a week lol the venue was amazing it had been raining the whole week leading up to the wedding but the day of the wheather was amazing! I was running 20 mins late to my wedding but Natalie assured me everything was going to be ok and I had nothing to worry about and I didn’t with her and my new husband by my side! Everything was perfect we never got off track and everything was done so beautifully! Natalie really knows what she is doing!! September 30 2017 was the most perfect day and most memorable all thanks to amazing coordinators we had I didn’t have anything to worry about once I got to the venue! Thanks granberry for my making my wedding the best I’ve ever been too!
Granberry hills was amazing! The staff was very sweet, helpful and attentive to all my needs as a bride. They were very organized and everything was spectacular
I had my ultimate dream wedding at this facility and the staff made it seem like a breeze. I married my lover and best friend and the night could not have gone any smoother. From the moment I went to the open house, I knew this place was meant for us. The staff was absolutely AMAZING and the day of Coordinator was FANTASTIC. Every time I needed something or had a question, they were there from beginning to end and even after. If your looking for a place for your dream wedding to become reality with a great support system, this is the place for you!
Just WOW! I am still riding the high from how amazing our wedding was! From the very beginning booking the venue to the very end we were taken care of. You can call, email, Facebook message and they respond so fast and always do their best to answer any and all questions. I did not have to worry about a single thing on the day of our wedding. Natalie was so amazing and helpful as our coordinator. She took such good care of us and made our wedding flow smoothly. She even made sure we were hydrated after our ceremony, I mean how many people can say that about their coordinator! We are so grateful to her for everything. I cannot say enough good things about this venue. You definitely get the most for your money! Even after our wedding was over the communication was constant and I am so thankful to them for everything. Thank you Natalie and Granberry staff for taking such good care of us!
Besides the place being beautiful everything turned out great. At first, I will admit, I was a little nervous because I didn't have much communication with the venue. Once the time got closer and we met at 30 days, they were so quick at getting everything together and set in stone. They have the process down! Melissa was my coordinator and she was amazing. She was VERY attentive and all over the place! (In a good way!) LOVED, LOVED, LOVED!
I had my wedding July 14, 2017 on Hillside and from the time of booking to the day of, the Granberry Hills staff was amazing with communication, professional, so nice and helpful. Any questions or requests I had, they did their best to make it happen. Teresa and Andrea were amazing and so sweet, they did everything they could to make sure I was comfortable and everything ran smoothly, even accommodating last minute changes. We had a beautiful wedding and it was definitely a day to remember! Thank you to Andrea and the staff at Granberry! Mr &Mrs Farr
I fell in love with Granberry Hills the first time I went to visit the venue during their open house in January. It was the first open house that I had attended after setting the date for my wedding and I was sold from the moment I went in. Their open house was amazing and had so many vendors available to assist. Needless to say I booked my date and all my vendors that same day. During my 6 month wedding planning they were there very step of the way keeping up with the necessary dates and details to make the reception amazing. On the day of my wedding I had some trouble with the church were we had our ceremony at but as soon as I arrived to Granberry for my reception my wedding coordinator made sure that it was amazing and I didn't have to lift a finger ! She had the venue looking absolutely amazing and made sure that I was happy and enjoying my time. The only thing I regret about my wedding planning is not having my ceremony at Granberry ! I would recommend this venue to everyone for both ceremony & reception, they will make the experience and planning a piece of cake ! Thank you again Granberry for making my wedding memorable (:
Words can't express how beautiful my wedding was at Granberry Hills on July 2, 2017. It was everything that I could have imagined and more. My coordinator Theresa was AMAZING!!!!! Theresa was easy to work with and such a sweetheart and made my special day run smoothly. If you are looking for an affordable venue that makes sure that your day will be stress free, this is the place!!!
From start to finish, planning and during the event, we had the best service! Everyone treated us so gracefully and were very professional....they make wedding planning so look so easy! Natalie was our coordinator and she did an amazing job...her smile and energy added to the wonderful ambiance created for our reception. Pricing was very reasonable and they work with you every step of the way! Teresa and Courtney are great too!! Thank you to all the Granberry staff for making our day so special! Wishing you all continued success!
WE CANNOT SAY ENOUGH GOOD THINGS ABOUT THIS VENUE!! IT WAS TOTALLY BEAUTIFUL. TERESA AND ANDREA WERE FABULOUS AND EXTREMELY HELPFUL. IF I COULD I WOULD DO IT ALL OVER AGAIN!! THANKS GRANDBERRY HILLS!!!
The venue is very beautiful and our coordinator (Melissa) made it that much better! Her best interest was for the US, the couple. She was firm yet professional. The venue was very accommodating to our vision and all our request. I would suggest more time for bride dressing but our overall experience was very memorable. It was close in distance and very affordable.
Choosing Granberry Hills as my wedding venue was one of the best decisions I made. I'm the type to carefully research and compare all my choices before picking anything! The venue is beautiful and the staff are such great pleasure to work with. Everyone from Jennifer (who kindly answered most of my calls when I had questions) to Teresa (lovely manager). But I have to give it up to Courtney, she was the first face I met at open house and I was blessed to have her as my wedding coordinator in the end. She made me feel at ease through the whole process. They even do all the set-up and decorating so that you are able to relax and enjoy your wedding day! My guests loved our gardenside venue and there's even a small field out next the reception area so the kids can run around and expel some energy rather then being cooped up in a formal event all evening. The only remark I have to say, is if you are getting married in the spring/summer when the time changes forward, don't have the ceremony at 5. The guests on the left side don't have much shade and will have sun coming in on the right side making it a bit uncomfortable as they watch. Other than that, I love Granberry Hills!
My husband and I got married at the hillside of Granberry Hills on 4/15/17, and since the first time we visited the venue we fell in love, is beautiful and had everything we needed. Ceremony area, bar where we can bring the alcohol, the outside is always green and beautiful, and the inside is so elegant with the shiny floors, tall ceilings and if course the breathtaking chandelier. the day of the wedding went so smoothly, we had a coordinator that day her name Theresa, she made sure everything went smoothly and as planned, she keep us calm when we noticed we forgot the rings at the hotel and ceremony was supposed to start. They take care of everything, when i got to the venue the day of, i could not believe how beautiful everything was, they set up and clean up, they work with your vendors specially catering making sure all the guests are taking care of, Theresa would come up to me to ask me if We were ok if we needed anything, i did not had to worry about anything, we just enjoyed our wedding, and if we had to do it again, i would choose Granberry hills again. Thank you for making our day, the best day ever!! 💕
I loved our venue! We got married on March 25th of this year. We had our ceremony under the arch and our reception on Gardenside. The coordinator was on top of everything we asked for. I couldn't have asked for a more perfect time date and place to marry the love of my life.
