Planning a wedding is incredibly taxing without the added pressure of keeping your family socially distanced, awaiting venue cancellations and wondering if the big day should go on. Unfortunately, many couples are facing the decision to delay their weddings until 2021, hoping to safely celebrate in the new year. Rather than pushing their celebration to a later date, it is becoming a trend for couples to host a mini-wedding or ‘mini-mony’ ceremony for immediate family and close friends, sometimes in tandem with plans for a bigger celebration in the future. The JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country Resort & Spa understands the importance of this modern day celebration and has experts ready to curate a luxurious mini-wedding package tailored to a couples’ dreams.
With summer quickly coming to an end, the resort’s two scenic outdoor pavilion venues offer a stunning 600-acre backdrop of the Texas Hill Country’s oak-covered hills perfect for wedding photos and a romantic, breathtaking backdrop for any ceremony. With fewer guests invited, couples may decide to splurge on more luxurious wedding details with their budget. From invitations and flowers to a locally-inspired menu and dazzling decor, expert resort wedding planners will help curate an idyllic setting for an enchanting event.
Another venue option is the charming and elegant 1,200 square foot Sunday House fully equipped with an indoor fireplace, limestone walls, distressed wood floors and plenty of space to spread out. Situated on site at the resort yet away from the crowds, many couples find Sunday House as the perfect space for an intimate wedding reception with a soothing and calming color palette to match any color scheme decor. The nuptials may be held inside the space, or there is also a beautiful outdoor garden space under what the resort calls the “Lone Tree” just steps away from the Sunday House.
JW Marriott’s full list of event spaces include:
Grand Oaks Ballroom
Cibolo Canyons Ballroom
Nelson Wolff Exhibit Ballroom
Wildflower Meeting Rooms
Grand Oaks Terrace
River Bend Pavilion
Couples can also enjoy major relaxation at the resort’s Lantana Spa. Before the big day the bride and groom can enjoy mani/pedis, spa treatments, saunas, whirlpool baths, inhalation room and more to prep for the ceremony. Services can be booked for the wedding party to enjoy at a distance. There is also a couples’ treatment room for the bride and groom to relax after all the wedding activities.
JW Marriot is currently offering a “New Beginnings Await” promotion that celebrates the adventures to come for a new couple. For every dollar the couple spends on their big day the couple will earn triple points toward free nights on their first big trip together or anniversary stay.
It is not too late to plan an intimate, mini-wedding in place of canceled plans and waiting longer to marry “the one”. JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country Resort & Spa is an ideal location to make a couple’s dreams of being wed this year come true. From breathtaking views of the Texas Hill Country to inviting indoor and outdoor spaces, the JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country Resort & Spa can help plan a day that will not be forgotten.
