Park 31 is a brand-spankin-new venue (It’s not even completely finished yet, that’s how new it is!) located North of San Antonio in Spring Branch, Texas. It’s Nestled on 33 acres of BEAUTIFUL property with pretty trees that make the perfect spot for a ceremony site. And it’s not your typical Texas wedding venue. There’s no barn to be found here. It has its own unique character with an industrial and modern vibe. In fact, if you go to their homepage right now and see the rendering of what it’s going to look like when it’s complete, it will probably make your jaw drop. It’s absolutely stunning and timeless!
I had the privilege of visiting Park 31 last weekend while they were having their first 31 couples come out for a little celebration. Of course, I brought my camera along for the adventure!
Their venue is currently under construction, but the framing is up, and even the bare bones are SO GORGEOUS! Can you just imagine how beautiful this will be when the walls are done and the windows are put in? I just kept saying “wow” all day! haha. This is the top deck above the reception area at Park 31. Mary, the venue owner, said a lot of couples are opting to have their head table and special guests eat upstairs! She also said some of them are having their first dance in front of those huge beautiful windows. There were also some other fabulous vendors at the party! Meet Smoke In The Hills Catering. Their BBQ is out of this world, and their chicken is NEVER dry! Sass Tass Bartending also joined the party. The thing I love the most about this bar company is that she only uses freshly squeezed juices in her cocktails. No dyes! Each couple signed a heart-shaped rock. There’s going to be a pathway from the bridal suite to the ceremony site where the rocks will be embedded. I met so many cuties that let me take their photos, too!
Bartenders4you also brought their baby, Sipsy!
I absolutely CAN’T WAIT to see their venue completed and photograph our first wedding there! Stay tuned for updates!
