With its fountains, columns, roses, gardens, fireplaces, antiques, designer decor, and flawless catering, our collection of historic buildings plays host to dozens of wonderful weddings every year.

The Crystal River Inn offers big-city sophistication (or total simplicity if you prefer) at small-town prices. We limit our wedding business to 4 weddings per month, and only one per day, in sizes ranging from tiny to 400 people.


Our inn is in the Historic District of San Marcos, one of Central Texas’ most beautiful towns. The inn’s courtyard, gardens, dining and living areas hold up to 200 people; but we cater even larger events all overCentral Texas. We’ve been voted "best place to have a wedding" and "best caterer" in Hays Country multiple times, so we have a lot of happy bridal couples in our Crystal River "family". Ours is an indoor-outdoor venue with rose gardens and fountains for the ceremony, and a huge bricked courtyard area for the reception. The adjacent dining room has a fireplace, piano, wetbar, and atrium. We use lots of candlelight and tiny white lights to create a magical feeling in our garden.

The inn is beautiful without being stuffy or formal. We are known for comfortable, elegant simplicity.

Feel free to contact us today for more information at 512-353-3248. Read less

We had the most wonderful experience here for our daughter's wedding and reception. Cathy worked with us on what we had budgeted, and then vendors she suggested in San Marcos were great. My daughter felt like the princess she is.

This place is a great value and they do their own catering. They take care of all the rentals (Chairs, tents, tables, etc) and the food was amazing! They are very kind and courteous and worked with me to make sure my day was perfect. If you're looking for a cozy, outdoor, garden wedding, this place is pefect!

All I can say is you get what you pay for. Gorgeous venue, unproffessional staff! When you ask a caterer to make specific apetizers for your wedding and they make two out of the six you ordered and substitue without telling you that's a problem. When your mother has to clean chairs the day of your wedding that's a problem. When you ask about left over food you paid for and a memeber of the staff says and I quote "There is only a little left and I am taking it home to eat." That makes your jaw hit the floor. That's just a little bit of my experience. Thank god I did the decorating myself. I feel sorry for any bride who has there wedding there and depends on the venue for that!

Better late than never. We found this place after searching for places in the area. We fell in love with the venue. Cathy was a pain to work with. We, thankfully, insisted on detail oriented contracts. Thank God we did because she is so very forgetful. Even with specifics all written out, she still had issues remembering what was agreed upon. It was one of the hottest days of the year and we had ordered a fan/mister for the outdoor ceremony. This was confirmed the day before and she still forgot! She offered a fan for free, but that fan did NOTHING for the 100 degree weather. She scheduled a "planning" meeting with us and we had to travel in town from Houston and got there only to hear that she had made a mistake and would have never scheduled an appointment on that day because she was out of town.

Overall, if you stay on her and make her specifically write what is being paid for, and make sure that you have plenty of patience to spare, the wedding ended up better than I hoped. We never received our certificate for our complimentary one year anniversary stay, but that really wasn't a big deal because we would not have returned anyways!
