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.

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!
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.
Having my wedding at Granberry hills gardenside was definitely a dream come true for my husband Rick and I! I wouldn't have had it any other way! The staff and my coordinator Michelle were so sweet and helpful every step of the way. Even up to the day of my wedding making sure everything went perfect! I highly reccommend having your wedding take place here at this venue whether it be gardenside or hillside. Their both stunning and the staff helps make your vision down to the bridal suite, wedding decor, ceremony and the reception. I now have all my guests raving about wanting their wedding to take place here lol! Thanks so much Granberry hills for all that you do! It was a pleasure!
My husband and I got married on March 24th on Gardenside. We fell in love with the venue the first time we went for a tour! Everything about it was so beautiful! The outside ceremony is exactly what we were looking for and the reception hall inside was beautiful as well. We really liked how we were assigned a day of coordinator. We got Michelle and she did everything absolutely perfect! We couldn't be happier with her and all of the Granberry staff. Michelle was able and willing to answer all of our questions and she basically took care of everything so the day of my husband and I had not a single thing to worry about. The event went by so smooth thanks to her. Thank you again Michelle and also to all the Granberry staff for making our special day so wonderful!
My husband and I were married on the hillside on March 4! The staff at Granberry hills was amazing from start to finish!! Teresa was the best in making sure my husband and I were having a good time. She didn't let me worry about one thing, not even the rain that day! Everything at the venue was perfect!! Thank you Granberry from the Meras' !!
I had a great experience with Granberry Hills and I would definitely recommend using them to anyone getting married any time soon! They took care of everything and helped destress everyone.
Granberry Hills is the ideal location for any wedding. My wife and I enjoyed the scenery as well as the service we received.
Our wedding (October 7, 2016) was absolutely beautiful!!! Granberry Hills Gardenside venue made the perfect setting for our special day!! The outdoor ceremony and incredible reception hall were above our expectations. Teresa and Melissa are incredible and insanely talented --- I mean ROCK STARS!! We received so many compliments from our guests on the classic and elegant setting and scheme. The staff was very hands-on and made this whole experience so easy and stress-free. We were so impressed by the venue we booked almost two years before our date to make sure we would not miss out. We can't thank them enough for making it perfect!
My husband and I got married here on June 17, 2016. It was a perfect evening. Andrea, our wedding planner, helped us have a wonderful evening and kept everything moving at a good pace. We did not have to worry about a thing. The setting of the ceremony was beautiful. All my guests commented on what a fabulous wedding it was. I highly recommend this venue to any and all couples.
Granberry Hills did a WONDERFUL job for my wedding! The staff was amazing & helped me plan my special day. The venue was perfect for what I needed. It rained on my wedding day & they took care of everything & made adjustments to where it was stress-free! They also did an amazing job with the clean-up after the wedding - my parents were very impressed with how amazing they did & how easy they made it. I would definitely use their facility again & will be recommending them to my family & friends!
Granberry Hills is just amazing very beautiful and perfect for outdoor wedding everyone was great ,helpful and patient with us we felt like we were getting married right outside our back yard it was so comforting got many compliments of how beautiful everything looked environment and appearance is just jaw dropping would definitely continue to recommend highly to family and friends thank you so much granberry
Would definitely recommend Granberry Hills for your wedding! The staff is patient and friendly and genuinely seem invested in having your event go by smoothly. Don't be discouraged by its semi-middle-of-nowhere location - the actual facility is incredibly well kept and worth it. The only reason I gave Granberry 4 stars instead of 5 is because there was some mix-up with the start time of my event on the day-of but the Granberry coordinator was cool and collected and made sure my reception went off without a hitch. Also, they did some switching around with the day-of event coordinators during the planning process which was a bit confusing but nothing that threw anything off. Our wedding was on May 7, 2016.
