The garden scenery of this forest-like venue is beautifully complemented by the stream and waterfall features. Photo opportunities await, near the picturesque water features along the lover's bridge and around the romantically lit property. Additionally, gorgeous animals including peacocks, deer, and birds call Scenic Springs home and, if you're lucky, might photobomb a picture or two. Continue the festivities outside with an outdoor cocktail hour.

The Location

The small town of Helotes, Texas was officially incorporated in October of 1981 after being established as a farming community for more than a hundred years after the Texas Revolution of the 1830s. From the first purchase of the town in 1858 by Scottish immigrant, Dr. George Marnoch to the second owner of the town, Arnold Gugger of Switzerland, and then to Bert Hileman in 1908, the town of Helotes remained small until its incorporation in 1981. Old-country charm can still be found around the town, including the landmark John T. Floore Country Store and dance hall, a popular spot for country musicians - Willie Nelson even performs here!

As host to the Helotes Cornyal festival, Helotes is a huge fan of corn, especially considering the name of the most delicious grilled sweet corn, elote, can be found in the town name. Maize was originally planted in the area by the local Native Americans and remained a significant crop throughout the 19th and 20th centuries. Can we get some delicious mayo and cojita-covered elote at the wedding please? Don’t forget the lime!

Within the Texas Parks & Wildlife Department’s Heart of Texas Wildlife Trail East, Helotes and Grey Forest are situated in the Cibolo Loop of this wildlife area. Nearby you can learn more about the area and its surroundings at the Cibolo Nature Center. Take a hike - no literally - at popular spots close by including the Senator Frank L. Madla Natural Area or Front Country Trailhead.
