Carriage Hills Ranch - Grand Exits
Helicopter ride offers unique wedding departure
There’s no doubt that South Texas is known for its diverse culture, beautiful sunsets and breathtaking views of winding rivers, rolling hills and downtown city lights. Couples from all around the country flock to the Alamo City to say “I do” looking to combine all of Texas’ magical treasures into their big day.
While San Antonio has a range of venues to choose from, Carriage Hills Ranch, located just north of Loop 1604, offers a unique experience for the couples looking to blend sophistication, Texas style, and an unforgettable evening of festivities for their guests.
For Michelle Bushong-Steinmetz, Venue Manager of the family-run business, describes their weddings as “one of our own.”
“We are about relationships. It’s what sets us apart. When a couple books their wedding with us, we get to know them. What they like and dislike, what they envision their day to be and we become good friends with them. We plan and execute each detail with as much importance as if it is our own wedding.”
Known for its wide open spaces and picturesque sunsets, Carriage Hills Ranch offers something very few San Antonio venues can–an unforgettable grand exit.
“Because of our location and the diversity of our space, we’re able to provide our couples with a great experience that is truly unique,” Michelle says. “One way we’re able to do so is by our ability to have a spectacular wedding departure. We’ve partnered with a private helicopter company to provide this service to our couples. It’s a really fun spin on the traditional exit.”
The ranch’s close proximity to both the San Antonio and Austin airports make it extremely convenient. A 20-minute ride of the Hill Country is the perfect way to end the evening. But a grand exit isn’t just for weddings.
“It’s a wonderful option for just about any special occasion,” Michelle says.
From weddings, receptions, engagements, and special events, the team at Carriage Hills Ranch is where dreams come true.
“A helicopter ride is truly a fun touch to add to any occasion, whether the style has a more elegant country vibe or a relaxed, simple wedding,” Michelle says.
The venue has even seen a well-known celebrity. Famous TV psychologist Dr. Phil visited the ranch and dropped down via helicopter.
“That was a fun call to receive. He was so nice and the team who flew him out were so easy-going,” Michelle says. “They offered to take us on a ride to see the city. It was such a fun experience.”
