The First Look
The heart of Texas holds a truly magical wedding escape. Trois Estate at Enchanted Rock in Fredericksburg, Texas is a secluded, rustic venue with a pronounced Southwestern style. The estate is like a miniature old world village amidst an expansive natural landscape. Owners Rebecca and Charles Trois had a dream 15 years ago of manifesting an estate inspired by San Miguel de Allende. Today the small village of Trois Estate rests near the spiritual landmark of Enchanted Rock where visitors enjoy bed and breakfast accommodations, a restaurant and a European Day Spa. Weddings at Trois Estate can be scheduled all year long and guests are welcome to enjoy the amenities.
The Courtyard and Rooftop Terrace can be utilized for both weddings and receptions. The combined areas can accommodate 200 guests at any time of the year. The courtyard is situated inside gracefully sloping adobe archways and is shaded by mature trees. This outdoor area easily combines both elegance and naturalness in its ambiance. The rooftop veranda offers a stunning view of the courtyard and has tiles with an intricate mosaic design. Guests also have a beautiful view of the Enchanted Rock landmark from this vantage point. Both the courtyard and rooftop terrace provide choice atmospheres for photo sessions.
The Reception Hall accommodates 275 guests for a sit-down dinner and with 5,000 square feet, can be used for any type of wedding event. With tables and chairs removed the hall has adequate space for dancing and includes a stage with electrical outlets for live music or a DJ. The room is also equipped with a bar area and two bathrooms. The soft lighting and curved ceiling of the reception hall gives this large space a very intimate feel.
What You Should Know
Though Trois Estate provides a list of recommended wedding professionals including planners, photographers and caterers, the flexibility exists for couples to choose their own vendors.

We had our wedding in the courtyard and restaurant of the Trois Estate this October and it was absolutely amazing! The venue is so unique and beautiful! Our guests loved walking around the estate checking out the balcony views of Enchanted Rock and exploring the different buildings including the chapel, grotto, and saloon. It was truly a memorable experience. The venue is a decent drive from town, which was somewhat of a negative, but once you get there it’s worth it! We bought out the entire venue for our wedding party for the weekend and it was great knowing that everyone up there was with us and we were all able to just relax and spend what little downtime we had in between setting up for the wedding together. The rooms aren’t your run-of-the-mill hotel rooms, so guests should be prepared for a different more natural experience, but all of our guests loved the uniqueness of their rooms. The dim lighting was a slight issue at times, but nothing that couldn't be solved. The staff was very accommodating to our needs. Rebecca was very personable and helpful, Vanessa was organized and quick to respond to any questions, and Jay was great at helping bring everything together. We live in West Texas and had to do everything long distance, which was initially very concerning, but we were very organized and the staff at the Trois Estate made it an easy process. My husband and I can’t wait to go back and stay at the Trois Estate and just be guests and enjoy the natural beauty of the location. If you want a one-of-a-kind venue that will provide the full experience of transporting your guests to a different time and place, go visit the Trois Estate!

We had a lovely outdoor wedding in the courtyard at Trois Estate. Guests loved watching the sunset and views of Enchanted Rock from the rooftop before dinner. A GREAT value. Trois Estate includes many items that are extra charges from most venues. Guests who stayed onsite kept talking about how they felt "at home" there. They all mentioned how Rebecca seemed like an old friend as soon as they met her. Vanessa is very well organized and super quick to respond to any question or request. You can have indoor ceremonies and receptions there, but this bride & groom love the outdoors.
My husband and I wed at Trois Estate back in November of 2016. Though I am just getting the opportunity to write my review, I cannot say enough wonderful things about Trois!!! Rebecca and Vanessa were both truly a pleasure to meet and work with for our wedding. The property is utterly breathtaking and Rebecca really does so many things to make it feel as if Trois is a second home by the time of the wedding. The energy of the place and the peaceful oasis she and her family have created is nothing short of magical. Our guests couldn't say enough wonderful things about how fascinating and beautiful the venue was and most took advantage of our proximity to Enchanted Rock to get in some hiking and take in some of the phenomenal surrounding scenery. On our wedding day, a huge unexpected storm hit. Our original plan had been to wed and have our reception in the central courtyard and terrace, which though the rain stopped by ceremony time, were thoroughly soaked. Rebecca was kind enough to come out into the rain to find the groom and let him know we were welcome to use the chapel and Grand Hall for our reception and festivities. We had not booked this separate facility and it was an incredibly generous, sweet, and thoughtful thing for her to do when the rain began dampening our plans. Everyone on the team at Trois is so friendly, and they seem to genuinely care about each wedding that will take place at the Estate; it made me feel so relaxed. Our event couldn't have been any more lovely despite the hiccups the rain caused: Trois' staff ensured that the evening was pure magic! Thank you Rebecca and Vanessa!!!
