Beautiful site for an intimate (and low cost) wedding

My daughter held her wedding here in mid-July. Of course, it was terribly hot, but you expect that in central Texas in July. She wanted a small, intimate wedding and she wanted... read more

My daughter held her wedding here in mid-July. Of course, it was terribly hot, but you expect that in central Texas in July. She wanted a small, intimate wedding and she wanted to save as much money as possible for the marriage rather than spending it on the wedding. She was able to arrange everything through phone calls and emails.... More

My husband and I decided to pick this location because it has the most beautiful sunsets, a 20-30 minute drive from south Austin. They offer a "free" use of the chapel, we totally recommend reserving it for sunset time, it is stunning!

The views are stunning and the chapel bells ring out among the hilltops. The wedding reception I attended was fun and the staff were delightful the picturesque beauty was a bonus!

My husband and I were married here in April. The staff provided any help we needed and were there with us every step of the way. We absolutely loved the venue and have pictures that captured the event for many years to come. I highly recommend the chapel do anyone looking for a beautiful outdoor location in the area. The...

This was our second visit to Chapel Dulcinea for a wedding. The property is beautifully landscaped and has gorgeous views of the hill country. We stayed in south Austin both trips and the drive to the chapel was around 30 minutes with no traffic. The reception hall and suites for bride and groom are very nice. I've seen both the... More

We held our wedding ceremony at Chapel Dulcinea. Pictures on website don't capture the beauty of the location. Guests of all ages and ability were able to enjoy the venue. It is free to have your ceremony here -- plan ahead though as times are booked well in advance. If you are in the area, recommend visiting the grounds for... More

As a professional photographer I have photographed many weddings at the chapel. It's free!! But you have to sign up months in advance. The location is lovely with a open air covered chapel with a wrap around deck. There are many places to take family and couple photos plus the couple can ring the bell in the tower after they...

This chapel is on the grounds of the Wizard Academy (a business school, not THAT kind of wizard!). The grounds are literally through the start of the Texas Hill Country. The view from the chapel is expansive. Weddings are held here about 6 times a day, 7 days a week - and I'm getting married there! HINT #1: You can... More

This is an amazing wedding venue, we absolutely loved our whole wedding day. The chapel is very unique and beautiful, plus it's free, you just put up your deposit money and pick up a check when you check in for your ceremony. It sits on a hill so you have an amazing view of the valley below. It's very easy... More

It a a beautiful view but way to tiny for a wedding. I recently attended one here ad although it is free you need to put some effort into it to make it worthwhile. There is only a few benches so I suggest investing in some chairs for the guest. Otherwise, a very gorgeous location tucked away in the hill... More
