Scenic greenbelts of oaks, the aroma of wood burning fireplaces and the flavors of barbeque from Sisterdale and wines from Comfort are just a few iconic Hill Country offerings. All of these local favorites are found at The Bevy Hotel Boerne, a new upscale wedding destination.
“Bevy means ‘a collection,’ and our hotel is a gathering of all things Hill Country,” says Susan Stricklin, director of catering. “Our rooms and special event spaces feature the charm of the region as well as modern conveniences. We can host your ceremony and reception, rehearsal dinner and Sunday brunch and make sure everyone enjoys their weekend stay.”
Locally owned and managed, the Bevy is located just 30 minutes from downtown San Antonio and offers 120 rooms and suites, a grand ballroom, resort pool and patio and full-service restaurant and bar serving fare with a Texas twist.
Stone columns soaring to 20-foot-high ceilings, contemporary barn-inspired doors and an expansive foyer that displays views of oak tree groves bestow the Bevy’s Menger Ballroom with Hill Country appeal. The ballroom can host as many as 450 guests or be divided to accommodate smaller events.
The wedding package includes a guestroom for the couple, the champagne toast, cake cutting service, tables and chairs, linens in a myriad of colors, china, silverware and a spacious stage and dance floor. Exemplifying high-tech capabilities, the ballroom boasts three enormous drop-down LCD projector screens and many more audio/video amenities.
“Our packages provide so much, and since there’s no ballroom rental fee for receptions, our couples are getting exceptional value,” Stricklin says. “Also, other than catering, couples can choose the vendors they prefer for their décor, entertainment, transportation and other needs or request a list of vendors that I have compiled for their convenience.”
A complimentary tasting of the Bevy’s in-house catering is also part of the package. Slow-roasted brisket, chicken fried quail and grilled Gulf redfish are a sampling of the menu’s regional dishes. The event can serve locally-produced coffee, wine, whisky, craft sodas, honey for iced tea and items for dessert and ice cream bars.
Of course, the Bevy presents a variety of stunning ceremony spaces.
“The ballroom foyer is ideal for an intimate ceremony with its floor-to-ceiling windows, sleek pendant lighting and backdrop of the trees,” Stricklin says. “Our gorgeous meeting room with wood beam ceilings and windows that look out into the pool can host smaller ceremonies while our ballroom can accommodate up to 500 ceremony guests.”
Tipping a hat to the Hill Country, the Bevy guestrooms feature custom-designed headboards representing the green treed and blue sky reflections of Cibolo Creek which runs through Boerne, bathroom barn doors and earthy red, deep blue and soothing brown accents. The Bevy is a DoubleTree by Hilton property, so couples and their guests can use and redeem points for rooms.
Situated right off Boerne’s Main Street, the hotel is an easy drive to quaint boutiques and galleries. Picturesque wineries that give tours and beautiful rivers for fishing and tubing adventures are also nearby.
If family and friends would rather take it easy, the Bevy offers live Friday night music at its indoor/outdoor bar, s’mores roasting at the patio’s inviting fireplace and a tempting pool with plenty of lounge seating. To satisfy their craving for local cuisine, guests can dine at The Bevy Provision Co. restaurant or visit The Wander’N Calf Espresso Bar and Bakery for homemade goodies.
“We want our couples and their guests to feel like this is their cozy Hill Country getaway,” Stricklin says. “They can put their feet up by the fireplace, savor Texas flavors and drinks and retreat to their comfortable room so they feel refreshed for the big day.”
