The First Look
Set in the majestic beauty of the Texas Hill Country, halfway between San Antonio and Austin, The Studios at Fischer is an elegant, expansive venue that combines stunning outdoor spaces with stylish, modern architecture. With a spacious lawn, idyllic outdoor grove, spacious poolside patio and large elegant studio space, the venue is ideally suited for couples who wish to hold their entire wedding at one location, allowing the party to flow smoothly from ceremony to cocktail hour followed by dining and then dancing.

The Nature Grove. A picturesque outdoor ceremony spot located slightly away from the main building, guests first walk past two beautiful wildflower-filled meadows on their way to the Nature Grove. Here, couples exchange vows in front of a stunning ceremony arch adorned with flowers, set against a backdrop of majestic live oaks and lush green lawns.
Poolscape Patio. More than 2,300 square feet of open-air deck space surrounds the venue's spectacular outdoor pool. The spacious flagstone patio is ideal for pre-dinner cocktail hour and it includes a natural amphitheater and rock stage perfectly suited for toasting the newlywed couple. A fire pit on the patio also allows guests to enjoy the evening outdoors even on cooler nights, while a large lawn adjoining the patio offers fantastic views of the surrounding hill country.
Dragonfly Studio. After cocktail hour on the patio, the party then moves inside the contemporary studio space for the reception. This modernly designed space has a spacious, open floor plan that allows for ultimate flexibility. A loft space at one end provides a full view of the proceedings, while the adjoining covered patios on each side of the space make it easy to escape for a quick breath of fresh air.

Perfect Venue. Dream Wedding!Reviewed on 12/09/2015 Amanda S
The Studios at Fischer is an incredible venue with an amazing team. This team and their group of preferred vendors will blow anyone out of the water. One of the most recurring comments I heard was, "you are such a relaxed bride!" And I was. I had nothing to worry or be stressed about because the level of professionalism and responsiveness Lisa and Maria provided was like nothing I have ever seen. I happened to catch a beautiful day, but the team assured me that if any inclement weather occurred we had a plan B and plan C. They were proactive and ready for anything. Not to mention the venue itself is gorgeous with a mix of hill country elegance and black tie elements. There is no other venue like it. Thank you Studios at Fischer for giving me the wedding of my dreams!
Selecting The Studios at Fischer as my venue was the easiest but best choice I made in the wedding planning process. The easiest because the venue is so beautiful and the best because of the wonderful staff that were so easy to work with. The scenery is stunning and the interior is so unique and modern, it's the best of both worlds! I worked closely with Maria who was very professional, helpful and caring. I suffered from bride brain a few weeks before my wedding but Maria took the time to help me and make sure I thought of every detail. The day of the wedding Maria and her staff were there with me the entire night makeing sure all was taken care of and executed properly. I couldn't have asked for any better!
STAY AWAY!Reviewed on 11/24/2015 Stephanie B
This place was absolutely HORRIBLE! STAY AWAY! I am not one to leave a review but our experience with this venue was so AWFUL that i truly did not want them to deceive another couple the way they did us. The venue grounds are absolutely gorgeous,which is of course why we went the Studio at Fischer, but we learned (unfortunately the hard way) that the venue staff should be just as much of a deciding factor when picking your wedding venue. The staff is very friendly and cooperative through the showing/contract process, however the day of the wedding they were extremely rude and uncooperative. They are everyone reminding you what you can and cannot do. "Don't touch this!" "Don't do that!" While we were setting up day of, my bridal party kept coming up to me and asking me why we chose a venue with such RUDE STAFF! I am fine with limitations if those are the venue's rules but feel strongly that information should have been disclosed before having us sign the contract. And unfortunately they weren't. Lastly we bought liability insurance and rented a shuttle bus to take all guests safely to and from the venue. And prior to our wedding we had met with the staff to go over final details, including our alcohol selection and specifically noted Fireball as that is a popular shot with most everyone these days. The staff confirmed there was no problems with that because we had the insurance and guest transportation taken care of. Day of the wedding...NO SHOTS! The staff wouldn't even let the bridal party drink beer prior to our reception entrance. BUZZKILL! This is not the venue if you and your guests like to have a good time and not be restricted when you drink! Again I am only writing this review to hopefully prevent another couple from being deceived and making the wrong choice, as we did. This is one of the most important days of your lives and it should nothing less that perfect. At all cost, STAY AWAY FROM THIS PLACE!
Great venue!Reviewed on 6/17/2014 Monique O
I had a great experience at the Studio at Fischer and all of my guests thought the venue was beautiful! The Event Coordinator, Lisa Snow was awesome and I did not need to hire a day of coordinator. They made sure everything ran smoothly and I was not bothered the whole night.
