About Us

The Club at Garden Ridge is a rustic ranch-style wedding venue located just 30 minutes north of downtown San Antonio. Tucked into Texas hill country, The Club at Garden Ridge features a serene landscape complete with a spattering of old oak trees, two lakes and winding paths that take you across quaint stone footbridges. The incredible property sets the stage for a casually elegant affair that draws upon the intimacy of natural beauty while providing every amenity imaginable. The Club at Garden Ridge is home to a brand new state-of-the-art ballroom complete with commanding views of the lake and a wrap-around porch that invites guests to make the most of the space. The ceremony can be staged both indoors and outdoors, with popular locations being beside the lake and in the ballroom, which overlooks the courtyard.

The ballroom. Recently completed, the ballroom features 5,000 square feet of entertainment space. Floor-to-ceiling windows play to the natural beauty of the property, while a courtyard sits nestled within the outer confines of the building, providing an intimate space from which the guests may enjoy the property. Indoor ceremonies may be staged in the ballroom, with space for a wedding party ranging from 2 to 250 guests.

The lake. Many couples opt to embrace the natural splendor of the property at The Club at Garden Ridge by staging their wedding ceremonies beside the lake just outside the ballroom. Seating for 250 can be set up to accommodate guests, while the water and overhanging oaks provide a beautiful backdrop for any wedding.


What You Should Know

The Club at Garden Ridge is focused on the details when it comes to preparing for your wedding and the event staff does all it can to make for a seamless day.
