Dennis and ALL his staff were over the top amazing. Our worries went away as they were a step ahead of us the whole day. Food was OVER THE TOP amazing!!! Venue was beautiful! All I can say is if you pass this one by you will regret it!!!!
Recently, I had the good fortune book Spinelli's in Comfort, Texas, for a wedding. Spinelli's exceeded our expectations in every way. First of all, the setting in historic Comfort, is peaceful and close to shops, wineries, restaurants and historic points of interest. The wedding center is close to Kerrville, Fredericksburg, Boerne and San Antonio, but without the hassle of the big city. The catered food was amazing, and very affordable. The 100 year-old chapel, with its bell tower and adjacent dancehall and dining area, not to mention spacious grounds for outdoor functions is ready for large and small groups alike. And then there is the management. They were so helpful, and always available to take care of all our needs. If you're looking for a unique, beautiful wedding or special event facility, then Spinellis is the ticket.
This venue is fabulous! My daughter recently got married there. Everything was great! The chapel is beautiful, the grounds spectacular, the dinner and dancing in the reception area were flawless. Dennis did everything possible to make the wedding a memorable occasion for all. Cannot think of a better place to have a beautiful wedding.
My husband and I got married at Spinelli's Cathedral in Comfort, Texas on December 2016. It was the perfect wedding at the perfect venue. The old world charm was incredible. Dennis Spinelli and his staff did a fantastic job with the food and decorations The bridal suite on site was great for my bridesmaids and I to have a place to get dolled up, and the old dining area we decided to use as our dance hall since it has a great stage for the DJ. My favorite thing about the venue is that it takes very little decoration because it is already so nice, and the grounds were beautiful for pictures and for our guests to walk around and enjoy. The owner, Dennis, and manager, Victor, were really great. They worked with me on pricing and timing and were flexible. Victor helped with all the setup day of, and it turned out great, it's truly a hill country gem.
After being in several weddings as part of the bridal party, I had a pretty good idea of what I needed for a wedding. My fiancé and I decided we would have the venue booked at least a year prior to being married. The minute we stepped into Spinelli's venue and chapel, we were sold. The chapel is gorgeous and gave me the church vibe that I wanted and the grounds and reception area satisfied the outdoor feel my fiancé wanted. My guests were able to mingle prior to the wedding and after with plenty of space. Having the venue hours early was wonderful because myself and my bridal party were able to set up the reception area to our liking. The bridal house that we got ready in was quaint and perfect, with lots of mirrors and space for hair and makeup to set up shop. Dennis and Victor worked very well together, and I feel like our wedding day went so smoothly because they took care of any needs we had. They let us have access to any decorations that they had left over from other events. Having the catering onsite was extremely helpful as well. I feel like we were able to get a high quality wedding for an affordable price. The food was delicious, and we were able to come before and try everything, and our guests had several options. The buffet line worked smoothly and was put away when it was time for the dance floor to be open. The reception area was large enough that we were able to do all of our first dances amongst our guests, while having plenty of space to dance away from the dining tables when that started! The venue has several areas that your photographer can use as backdrops, and as a result, we have so many beautiful photos from our wedding day. I can't say enough about how wonderful Dennis and Victor were. We felt like we were truly taken care of and even though they do weddings all year round, we felt like our wedding was special to them. The venue is close enough to San Antonio and other surrounding towns that your guests will be able to have entertaining options if you do a full wedding weekend like we did. We felt so at home everytime we went to Spinelli's, and I am so happy that we started our journey as a married couple at this gorgeous venue!
We saw sooo many venues before we found Spinelli’s and it was an instant, YES! It has a charming atmosphere and Dennis and Victor are absolutely wonderful. They made the whole process smooth and stress free all while making us laugh pretty much the whole time! Compared to the many other venues we saw, Spinelli's blew them all out of the water with the extremely professional service, the gorgeous chapel and reception, the delish food and the amazing price. We highly, highly recommend Spinelli’s!!
My wife and I got married here this summer and I have to say, this venue was perfect for both of us. She and her friends were able to get dressed together while the guys had our own area to relax. Neither of us are big "planners" but they made everything so easy. The food was awesome too!
I know it sounds totally cliché... but we had the wedding of our dreams! The venue is absolutely gorgeous and the staff and the owner made sure our day was perfect. Our wedding was about 175 people and we had so much room to dance and mingle with both an outside area, inside area and dance floor. We could not have picked a better location to celebrate our special day. Also, with the church on site, our guests just had to walk right next door for the reception. We were so pleased, I could go on and on- if you are looking for a beautiful affordable venue... I highly recommend Spinelli's Wedding venue.
The venue is beautiful and that renders a 5 Star, the food during our taste test was a 5 but the actual wedding food was lukewarm/cool And my hubby and I didn’t eat it. The guests thought the food was good though. The organization of the facility 1; I had to essentially keep track of everything I paid for and asked for because nothing was written down and Staff would send emails about things I had either already paid for or specified how I wanted handle. Ex: I paid for cake cutting and when the time came to cut the cake there were no plates, cutters or utensils. Victor swore we hadn’t paid for it until the paid sheet came out and he realized the error. There are several more examples of disorganization/timelines not being upheld like previously discussed. If you want this venue, go for it but micro manage and keep all your documents and emails of interactions then everything be smooth sailing.
We couldn’t have chosen a more perfect location than Spinelli’s Venue. The convenience of having the church, venue, and rented houses in the same complex makes the wedding very smooth and fun. The entire place is absolutely beautiful. The church is intimate, the venue is spacious, elegant, and has lots of lighting, and the houses are extremely nice. All of our guests loved the location and the food, which they provided as well. On top of the beauty of the place the service of Dennis and Victor is phenomenal. They are accommodating, flexible, and the prices are extremely reasonable. In addition, Comfort, TX is a beautiful town and our guests, especially those that stayed in a B&B close to the venue, loved the surroundings. We had brunch and visited some wineries the day after our wedding. We highly recommend Spinelli’s!
Our family and guests were blown away with our wedding. They not only took care of the food, decorations, tables, the ceremony, and reception but also worked with us all the way to stay in budget. We also rented the houses on location for us and our family and could not be happier with how our wedding turned out.
I was married at Spinelli's Wedding Venue November 26, 2016. Dennis was wonderful to work with very hospitable and funny. The 100 year old church was very beautiful! The price was great! They worked with us to make edit after edit adding this and that removing XYZ without complaint. We added a white dance floor to the main hall and some drapery and every turned out so beautiful. It was very convenient to have everything in one spot. The guest loved the venue and we received numerous compliments. Dennis and his team were very accommodating to our very non-traditional wedding. We had a Nigerian ceremony prior to the church ceremony. The food was good. Overall I would highly recommend the venue!
The venue itself is beautiful. It was reasonably priced compared to so many other places. They lost a star from me because of the way the business is run. The owner changed a policy after we had already booked and almost left the Bridal party without a place to stay. He did not honor our original agreement. The management bickered during our taste testing. They didn't even bring out the correct food for our taste testing. Finally once we actually paid the deposit it was almost impossible to get ahold o anyone. I felt like once they had our money nothing else mattered.
Dennis and Victor made my husband and I feel like our every need was being met! Not only is the location GORGEOUS, but when on a budget, they offered the most for the price we were quoted. The food was excellent, the staff friendly and accommodating. They worked with us to create a perfect wedding day. Could not have been more happy!
Beautiful venue! We were very pleased with the service. Plenty of accommodations nearby for our wedding guests.
Charming and RusticReviewed on 10/14/2014 Angela C
Spinelli's Cathedral in Comfort, TX is a gorgeous rustic venue. My favorite fact is that (if you like) almost everything can be included. This makes it very easy to plan a wedding. The reception and venue can be in the same place since they are right next door to each other. He can help you set up all your smaller details too if you like dj, catering, etc. Communication is a little slow, but very friendly. Victor did an amazing job helping me with all my details and answering all my questions. The venue is so pretty it barely needs any decor. It is a little out of the way from the city but is definitely worth it.
A Dream Wedding!Reviewed on 7/19/2014
Spinelli and Staff! Thank you, thank you, and thank you. You all made our wedding dream a reality in less than three months. From when we first visited the venue to our big day, and after, we felt welcomed by everyone. Everything from the ceremony to the reception went as planned and we are happy. The foods OMG! (Leg of Lamb and Chicken Marsala) were exquisite and delicious. Everyone loved the foods. The cottage was very convenient for all our friends and families. With our low wedding budget, we received A Five Star treatment. Thank you! That is true; we arrived as strangers and left as friends. We can’t ever thank you enough for helping us. Well done and well earned! Junko & Berlin
June 2014 WeddingReviewed on 7/15/2014 Cierra M
First of all, we chose this venue because of the small town charm and the beautiful scenery. All of our guests were taken away with how beautiful the venue was, and comfortable it felt. I would say that my overall experience was a good one with this venue. The owner is Dennis Spinelli, and this general manager is Victor. Dennis is charming and he is the one that originally showed us the venue and got our contract drawn up. We met with him a few times throughout our engagement to check in. Most of the time we spoke with the GM Victor. He is a funny guy and really goes out of his way to help you out. He even made sure that I could use the venue one whole afternoon to myself for my bridals. This venue is great because everything is included in the price. We booked early, which I would recommend since they tend to book up pretty fast. The food at the wedding was great, and everybody loved the cajun style buffet we decided to do. I would recommend doing a tasting at their other venue The Library/Restaurant to try out different styles! If there was anything negative I had to say, it would be the fact that we thought paying gratuity on the building was a little ridiculous. We were already paying gratuity for the waitstaff, but on the building itself? That was odd. Also, I was okay with there being other people checking out the venue on my wedding day (we did the same thing when we came out the first few times), but there were random strangers snooping through our stuff at 3pm when our wedding was at 6pm. It felt a little intrusive. Other than that, I would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for a small town venue with lots of charm! Some of our guests even said they wanted to book the place! Good luck!
Spinelli's Cathedral in Comfort, TexasReviewed on 6/04/2014
My husband and I got married at Spinelli's Cathedral in Comfort, Texas on December 31st 2013. It was the perfect wedding at the perfect venue. The old world charm was incredible. Dennis Spinelli and his staff did a fantastic with the food and decorations. My husband is still raving about one of the dishes Dennis prepared for the reception! Pork with red pepper sauce. It is a must try! From the first moment we visited The Cathedral and met Dennis and Victor we knew it was the perfect venue. Beautiful and the warmth and enthusiasm exhibited where unbelievable! The entire staff made our experience one never to be forgotten! They were there to answer any questions we might have at any time. They made us feel like we were the only two people they needed to attend to. The venue offered so much. Beautiful grounds and spots to do many outdoor activities, as well as, a bride's cottage. The cottage was perfect for spending time with your bridesmaids and getting ready for the big event. I loved it! Can't say too much about the wonderful food and service at the reception! Every dish was superb! My fav was the chicken with a mushroom sauce that was to die for. I highly recommend Spinelli's Cathedral for your upcoming wedding!
What a gem in the Texas Hill CountryReviewed on 9/05/2013 Shirleen L
Of all the compliments we received for our wedding, the venue was one of the top two aspects that were so highly complimented! The moment we stepped foot on Spinelli's Hill Country Cathedral, we knew it was the spot for our wedding. Beautiful 100+-year-old rock wall chapel for the ceremony, reception on same location with some recent upgraded construction, beautiful landscape, and the drive out to Comfort, TX from San Antonio provides for nice rolling hills scenery. Talk about some great photo opportunities! We like to refer to it as our drivable destination wedding. Dennis and Victor were all a big help in making sure that all the details of our wedding were squared away. The day of, Victor, Tori, and other staff had the venue set up exactly to how we described it. And they were all too willing to make a couple of minor changes. Even though there was a wedding the night before, everything was clean and prepped for our wedding. I would highly recommend this place as a wedding venue! Once you set eyes on it, and it fits the overall theme of the wedding, I would venture to say it would be hard to pass up! Thank you to all at Spinelli's for helping make The Oldham Wedding a dream come true.
The Cathedral is a beautiful venue!Reviewed on 7/19/2013 Johnny E
Everything was perfect. The coordinators are experts. I didn't have to do a thing!
Great Times in lifeReviewed on 6/17/2013 Brandi H
The best Time in my life, thank Dennis , we love the venue The space in both the cathedral and hall were big enough for both of our large families to dance the night away and having everything so close was ideal.the patios are beutiful, I could not be more pleased with our wedding day and all the beautiful memories!
Beautiful VenueReviewed on 4/28/2013 Toni F
This was a great venue with a helpful manager. They were always friendly and easy to work with throughout the planning process. Our only complaint would be that they told us their would be a day head coordinator for the day of. However, it was not very organized the day of. They only coordinated the catering part. The wedding day was a little stressful because we had to worry about the timing of everything.
beautiful venue, friendly service and great priceReviewed on 4/19/2013 Sabrina J
My wife and I were so happy to find Spinelli's Cathedral. Dennis, the owner was more than happy to have a lesbian wedding there. The price was very reasonable. We loved the cathedral and the new reception room. I would definately reccommend it.
Wonderful VenueReviewed on 4/17/2013 Elizabeth D
I used the Hill Country Cathedral for my wedding venue on 13 April 13. I reserved the venue about eight months before, and it was already nice. Now it is BEAUTIFUL. The renovations they have done in the past months are incredible. The chapel is perfect and intimate, the patio area was such a great cocktail hour area, and the new dining room was warm and perfect sized for my 175 guests. The bridal suite on site was great for my bridesmaids to have a place to get dolled up, and the old dining area we decided to use as our dance hall since it has a great stage for the DJ. My favorite thing about the venue is that it takes very little decoration because it is already so nice, and the grounds were beautiful for pictures and for our guests to walk around and enjoy. The owner, Dennis, and manager, Victor, were really great. They worked with me on pricing and timing and were flexible since I was an out-of-town bride. Victor helped with all the setup day of, and it turned out great. I also used their restaurant Spinelli's as my caterer, and the food was hot, yummy, and there was enough for my guests to get seconds. Their staff was so professional and helped with cleanup throughout dinner and the rest of the night with our decorations. I highly recommend the venue, it's truly a hill country gem.
