Introduction of Lambermont Events
The current owners of Lambermont Events have been hosting weddings, grand events, and intimate dinner parties since 2008.
Brief History of Lambermont Events
Built in 1894, Lambermont is an event venue in San Antonio nestled in the heart of downtown. It is considered a true historic jewel that offers unmatched character and warmth for any special event. Lambermont’s luscious grounds are ideal as a wedding venue in San Antonio, whereas its rooms inside offer a more intimate setting. Utilize both to create the perfect feeling. Lambermont also offers other amenities similar to a private hotel.
Lambermont Events’ basic rental fee ranges from $7,000 to $10,000 depending on which package is chosen, but yours will be the only event scheduled at the mansion. You’ll have sole access to the property.
You can access the property beginning at 8:00 a.m. on the one-night package and at 1:00 p.m. the day before on the two-night package. Since you have access to the property for extended periods of time, it is your choice as to how long your actual event can be. There is room to accommodate 10 overnight guests in four bedrooms and a carriage house apartment. All sleeping quarters are climate-controlled with individually-set heating and air conditioning and have their own private bathrooms.
The mansion can comfortably seat about 70 people inside for dining on the first floor and accommodate about 150 people for a standing cocktail reception. More people can mingle if you choose to open up the second floor and porches. The mansion can also hold much smaller wedding ceremonies inside for about 50 standing people. The lawns outside can easily accommodate 300 people for a ceremony and reception. There is also access to male/female outdoor restrooms beneath the carriage apartment and a caterer’s preparation area in the main house.
You will need to vacate the premises at 1:00 p.m. the day after the wedding or event.
Ceremony, Cocktail & Reception Details
The Lambermont mansion and its lawns are literally a blank canvas. Options on where to have the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception are endless. Lambermont Events prides itself on no two events being alike.

Can we begin at dusk and work backward? Depending on the time of year, the exact angle will slightly vary, but generally speaking, the sun sets behind the loading ramp/parking lot of the Lambermont. This means, if placed correctly, you could have the perfectly backlit ceremony arch! Or, if your ceremony is a wee bit earlier in the afternoon, you can have the most golden couple’s portrait session. The side and back yards are edged in bamboo, so they’re always green! This makes for dreamy backgrounds no matter what time of year it is.
Recently, the Lambermont removed some larger trees from its yard due to disease, but that really did nothing to take away from the natural beauty of the yard. Everything about Lambermont’s yard is still extremely beautiful.
Don’t worry about hiring a drone… because your photographer can get those high-angled, overhead shots from the second floor. Moreover, the Lambermont is such a romantic property. It always reminds me of more of a castle than a mansion. Any of the porches, the grand staircase, or the music room are all perfect for pictures.
Circling back to nighttime, this mansion is incredible when it’s lit up. You don’t want to miss the opportunity for a nighttime portrait in front of this beauty. make sure your photographer is well-versed in off-camera flash in order to get these nighttime shots I’m speaking of.
