Part of Texas Hill Country, Becker Vineyards in Stonewall draws in crowds and couples because of its manicured grounds and varied venues, from intimate cellar receptions to grand outdoor celebrations. If you’re a spring bride, plan to capture the property’s blooming lavender fields, and no matter the season, take a portrait with a glowing southern sunset as your backdrop.
