Interested in adding a Reception?

Here Are the Options Available for Gardens at Old Town Helotes
Plan a Reception your own


Many couples plan receptions on their own at their homes, AirBnBs or simply make reservations at a restaurant.  If you are having 20 guests or less this may be the best option for your own day. If you need any services, we can provide as little or as much as you need from table settings to additional hours of photography!

Reception Options Below can not be performed at this Venue

This venue does not allow for receptions however we can perform any of our reception options below at a 2nd location.  If a couple does want a reception at this venue it is possible but does require the regular rental fee starting at $2900 as any time food is served at this venue they consider the event a really wedding and not an elopement, small wedding or microwedding. We suggest the following options:

1. Going to a nearby restaurant with a private room and adding One of our Mini Reception Options.

2. Booking a Reception Venue and adding one of our Reception packages (seen below)

3. Have a reception at your home, AirBnB, backyard etc.

Non-Meal Receptions

Everlasting Elopements offers smaller receptions for couples not wanting a traditional full reception with a sit-down meal.  Best for those couples having small guest counts who would not likely dance we offer the following packages:

1.  Mini Receptions conducted at a restaurant

2.  Cake & Punch Reception

3.  Cocktail Reception

Micro-Receptions (Micro-Weddings)

Our micro-reception packages designed for small guests counts are perfect for those couples wanting all the aspects of a large wedding but slimmed down to better suit their smaller guest counts.  Choose between these 3 levels :

1.  Dinner Reception Only

2.  Micro Reception

3.  Traditional Reception

Exploring your Destination

Located just 3 miles north of  San Antonio,  The Gardens At Old Town Helotes is a 6.3 acre site located at the gateway to the Texas Hill Country.   Located just up the road is El Chaparral Mexican Restaurant with excellent reviews, perfect for lunch or dinner (and a margarita!).  Need a great cup of coffee or a light breakfast/lunch, be sure to visit The Cracked Mug.  Don’t miss Helotes’ own local winery, Helotes Creek for wine tasting, live music, and rose´ slushies!  Although you are on the edge of the Hill Country in the quiet countryside, don’t forget you are just a short 30-minute drive from the world-famous San Antonio River Walk and all the downtown attractions!

How does it work?

Everlasting Elopements’ unique and simple virtual wedding planning system was built to simplify the wedding planning process. To keep the stress out of the process, we have a step-by-step system to plan your wedding ceremony from now to ‘I Do’. 

It all starts with the ceremony package! Once you have selected this we can customize any extras and build on a reception package. Then we will help you select and book the perfect venue that fits your vision. Once you book, it’s just a matter of completing a few forms, then showing up on the day with your license and rings– we do everything else!  Wedding Planning does not have to be stressful or hard if you have the right team behind you to execute a flawless wedding day!

Weddings have many variables so it is essential to take things in steps in order to build a customized wedding package to suit your needs– this way you’re only paying for services you need (and nothing you don’t)!


1. Select Your Wedding Ceremony Package

Whether you are looking for an elopement, a micro wedding, or just a simple exchange of “I Do”- we have a package for you to choose from. The first step is to select which one is right for you.

2. Select Your Extras

Once you have selected your package, you can select which level suits your needs. Each package has a Basic, Deluxe, and Premium level that offers various upgrades and add-ons. This allows us to do as little or as much as you need on your big day!

3. Select Your Reception Options

Once you have finalized your ceremony plans, we can add on one of a variety of reception options. Whether you want to have a Mini-Reception or Full Reception on-site, eat at a restaurant, or plan a reception on your own, we can help with rentals, cake, coordination, photography, and everything else you could need.  If you decide to add reception elements in addition to your ceremony, we will simply pair the two packages together to get you the services you need for the full wedding day you are dreaming of!

4. Choose Your Venue

Now that we’ve gotten to know you and your wants and needs we can recommend venues that will work best for you! Or, if you have one already in mind, our packages will work there too. While we have many locations on our website for you to browse, if it’s not on our website we can still serve you there! Our packages work at ANY location!

5. Stress Free Planning

Once your ceremony has been reserved through our online reservation system, we will send you a series of emails with forms that go directly to your vendors. All you need to do is complete the forms and your vendors will reach out if needed. Remember, you always have the ability to add new elements as well as upgrade services you already have at any point if you choose!

6. Your Wedding Day

You and your fiance, along with any guests, will show up at the venue you have chosen with your marriage license and rings. The Everlasting Elopements Team of Wedding Vendors will take care of the rest and all the details so you can focus on what the day is really about- Marrying the One You LOVE!

Don’t wait any longer.
