    Omni La Mansion del Rio

    Think of the Omni La Mansión del Rio, and a stellar reputation comes to mind. Movie stars love its accommodations, food critics rave about its cuisine, and tourists flock to its enchanting patio along the River Walk.  But, here’s a little secret. The romance and luxury of this four-diamond property is very much within the reach of brides and grooms who call San Antonio home.

    “We really want to spoil our local wedding couples with our gorgeous ballrooms, exquisite cuisine and friendly service,” says Erica McCormick, catering sales manager of Omni La Mansión. “When they walk through our doors, they can rest assured that we will take care of them.”

    Built in 1852 as a boys’ school by the Brothers of the Society of Mary, the Spanish architecture of this historic jewel is unduplicated among local hotels. With its gorgeous courtyards, rounded arches and wood-beamed ceilings, the property feels as inviting as a charming hacienda. Yet, it offers the attentive customer service exemplified by the Omni Hotel brand.

    As a place to exchange vows, many brides find Omni La Mansión’s Las Canarias courtyard irresistible. The oasis brims with lush greenery, verdant ferns and clay plots holding colorful petals. McCormick describes the ceremony possibilities:

    “As family and friends sit on the brick-paved patio, the bride walks down the wrought iron staircase and meets her husband in front of a gently flowing fountain,” she says. “After they wed, the two ascend the stairs, share a kiss and wave to their loved ones below who cheer for them.”

    A popular site for cocktails is the El Capistrano banquet space and connecting courtyard where guests can mingle by the pool. 

    “When you are here, you really do feel as though you are in a Mediterranean resort, although you are really in one of the country’s most beautiful urban districts along the scenic Riverwalk,” McCormick says.

    It’s true that Omni La Mansión has hosted celebrities and dignitaries, but McCormick and her staff want brides and grooms to know that they, too, will be lavished like royalty.

    The Iberian Ballroom showcases three immensely beautiful crystal chandeliers, and the Madero Ballroom features two of the sparkling crystal chandeliers.

    The entrance to the ballrooms include a beautiful open space with marble and brass staircase.  This area is perfect for cocktails or mingling before entering the main ballrooms.

    Small- to mid-sized wedding parties have the option of using the romantically vintage Veramendi room which is surrounded by candelabra sconces and windows that overlook the pool courtyard.

    The wedding package provides what brides and grooms most desire, including a champagne toast and cake cutting, and for the wedding couple, a complimentary room, champagne, chocolate-covered strawberries and breakfast.

     “For my staff and I, all it takes is a personal visit and she falls in love all over again…with our property of course,” Catering Sales Manager Erica McCormick says. “If the bride is looking for a hidden treasure that offers elegance and panache, she’ll find it at Omni La Mansion del Rio.”
