Here Are the Options Available for the Spanish Govenor's Palace
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!

Onste Mini Reception

Onsite Mini Receptions are simple receptions meant to simply capture the moments of cake cutting, toast/speeches, and 1st dance immediately following your ceremony at the ceremony location.  These short mini receptions add about 20 minutes to the event and allow you to get pictures of these wedding traditions without the expense of a sitdown-style reception. Everlasting Elopements will set up a small decorated table to display your cake and provide all materials needed to cut and serve the cake as well as do a toast.  Additional reception services can not be added to this service. $300 for up to 12 guests, additional guest $3/guest

Dinner Reception at a Nearby Restaurant

Chapel Dulcinea is nestled in the Hill Country near Dripping Springs- the Wedding Capitol of Texas! There are many local vineyards, breweries and restaurants. If you are not needing a full reception, our Dinner Reception packages are the perfect complement to these venues. The packages include our vendors setting up the space, managing your guests, and hosting key reception moments such as cake cutting and dances, while being captured by your photographer and/or videographer!

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 guest 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 Spanish Governor’s Palace is a historic 18th-century adobe located in Downtown San Antonio. From where it is located, there are lots of places to see and things to do!

It is walking distance from the famous Riverwalk which is lined with shops, bars, and dining options. Nearby is Travis Park and Hemisfair Park, where the 1968 World’s Fair was held and today has a fantastic play area for kids. Make sure you go see the Alamo if you’re new in town! Places to stay nearby include La Quinta Inn, Holiday Inn Express, and Embassy Suites by Hilton.

There are a ton of great restaurants nearby on the Riverwalk, and not too far away is the Tower of the Americas. Providing the most spectacular view of San Antonio, this 750-foot-tall tower is an iconic place to grab drinks or a meal after your wedding.

 

Testimonials

First made contact with Everlasting Elopements three months before the ceremony. I did not understand the process completely and was a nervous wreak up until a week before the ceremony. I never thought of myself as a Bridezilla but my worst came out with not understanding and trusting Everlasting Elopements process. They have a process in place and know what they are doing. They have so many clientele and vendors that you can trust they will make the wedding of your dreams. The real magic happens the week to 2 weeks before the actually ceremony. So if you are booking months in advance have patience and trust their process..

They have everything to make your dream wedding. They specialize in small weddings but they make them grand and memorable. Our vendors did a fantastic Job! 

Sirena Leanne

From the day we first contacted Everlasting Elopements to arrange for our wedding, they made planning so stress-free and easy! They contacted us about everything that we needed to do and when decisions needed to be made. Our ceremony was perfect, the cake was to die for and the flowers were gorgeous! We were so very happy with every aspect of working with Everlasting Elopements! We can’t say enough about how truly wonderful they helped make our special day!

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.
