    Interested in adding a Reception?

    Here Are the Options Available for the San Antonio Botanical Garden
    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!

    Dinner Reception at a Nearby Restaurant

    The San Antonio Botanical Garden is very centralized closed to many great restaurants that have private rooms for your reception including La Paloma Blanca Mexican Cuisine, multiple restaurants at the Pear Brewery, and the many restaurants up and down Broadway Street the Garden is off of.  Any of our reception packages (see below) can be performed at any of these restaurants.

    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

    The San Antonio Botanical Garden is just moments from downtown and is filled with perfect venues and backdrops to fulfill your wedding expectations.  Consider dining right on the property with a lovely gourmet meal at Jardin.  Don’t miss a visit to the Witte Museum, San Antonio’s premier museum of South Texas history, culture, and natural science.  The San Antonio Zoo, Brackenridge Park, and The Japanese Tea Gardens are side by side and all wonderful ways to enjoy all that San Antonio has to offer.  And of course, you must take advantage of the endless fun of The San Antonio River Walk.  There are also many great eclectic places to stay nearby one being the Emma Hotel in the Pearl Brewery entertainment district!


    We were so pleased to find [Everlasting Elopements], because we were on a budget and it was getting stressful planning the wedding on our own. I emailed them and after that, they took care of everything. Everyone was very friendly and professional. Our officiant Rev. Rene Esparza was very nice and his demeanor was warm and inviting. We have 4 children and we were able to include them in our vows and it was truly memorable.

    The worst part for me was planning the wedding. Using Everlasting Elopement help me avoid all that because they took care of all that for me. It’s like a one stop shop, and being a person that’s new to the area it was a God sent. I didn’t have to find five different people to do five different things for just one wedding day. On my day I didn’t have worry about flowers or cake they pick that up for me & made arrangements for the photographer. It was exactly what I wanted EASY & reasonably priced.

    Everlasting Elopements was perfect from the moment I called to find out more information. The Staff was able to answer all of the questions I had and reassured me that I should not be nervous, they will take care of everything. The beautiful of it all, I did not have to meet, or go to an office because everything was done electronically. To say the least, I was very impressed. The day of, it could not go more beautifully. Absolutely amazing!!!!!

    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 day-of with your license and rings– we do everything else!  Wedding Planning does not have to 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.
