We're starting a new series on the blog where we feature select wedding venues in and around the San Antonio area. We've had the privilege to work with these venues over the years and have grown fond of their distinct characteristics and details that make them unique and special to every couple's wedding style.
This month's featured venue is The Kendall Plantation, located in Boerne, TX. A little history for you about this venue:
Kendall Plantation sits atop a hill on a beautiful ranch in Kendall County. Decades ago, the property was owned as a whole piece and used to grow cotton. In the 1980’s, the May family purchased a 150-acre section and made their home in the original ranch house. As other sections of the land became available, the May Family collected them to make the ranch the 300 acres it is today. The décor, colors and details were inspired by true Southern Louisiana Plantation homes and mirrored after the antebellum style and old world elegance. History of the land has been preserved, as we have kept original items used to work the ranch centuries ago.The dream of Kendall Plantation came to life when the May and Voss families officially opened the doors in November of 2011. They are a homegrown, family owned and operated business that is passionate for family and making each event perfect.
For a truly elegant wedding with timeless appeal and picturesque scenery, Kendall Plantation is the place to say “I Do.” Set atop a hill, offering breathtaking views of the Texas Hill Country and a cool breeze year-round, Kendall Plantation highlights some of the most desirable features for today’s bride. Whether you are planning a gorgeous daytime wedding or a spectacular nighttime event, they want to make your wedding vision come true! Celebrate your nuptials in unforgettable elegance with an outdoor ceremony on their forever-green lawn under a beautiful gazebo. Century-old live oak trees frame the gazebo as it overlooks a natural spring pond.
Inside the Plantation, French doors, floor-to-ceiling windows and a grand staircase create the perfect indoor wedding environment. On the grand staircase serves as an ideal focal point to exchange vows. The ballroom can be transformed from a romantic ceremony setting to a seated dinner or festive reception while your guests enjoy their signature wraparound porches and spectacular second-story views.

At Haute Weddings we've had the privilege to work with couples who have chosen the Kendall Plantation as their wedding venue over the years. We've developed a close relationship with the staff that runs the operations there and love seeing how the space transforms with each wedding's theme and decor. The space accommodates up to 400 guests and offers plenty of room inside to design the reception of your dreams! Their outdoors open up to a forever green outdoor lawn with an aisle leading down to the gazebo where so many beautiful ceremonies take place as guests look on.
