Gruene Estate Styled Shoot...A Jewish Wedding

Let's do something different! After a while, weddings start to look the same. Our goal was to create a styled shoot that utilized Gruene Estate's farm setting and natural spaces in a different way. Our original open air chapel is the corner stone of the Gruene Estate brand, and we have never had a ceremony that was performed outside of the chapel.  While still using the structure in the back drop, the decision was made to stage the ceremony and reception in a different space.  

Gruene Estate is a versatile venue that offers different setup options.  Being nestled on 17 acres in the Texas Hill Country, the mission was to utilize our open pastures and picturesque fields.  The idea was formed, and we collaborated with Brandy Hines Events and Designs from Comfort Texas.  She has been featured in Domino, Style Me Pretty Living, and Houzz.  She created the floral and design work for the shoot.  The emphasis was to hi-light the use of Gruene Estate's natural beauty and bring a fresh perspective to a farm wedding.

Team work from other vendors pulled the shoot together, and helped to create a one of a kind photo session.  The innovative ladies at 2tarts bakery provided some amazing confectioneries.  Local artisan cheese master Gourmage, created tapas spreads to perfectly compliment the rustic feel and earthy tones of the shoot.  Celebrations Prom and Bridal in downtown New Braunfels provided the tuxedos and dresses.  Mintage Rentals came up with some unique vintage furniture and a tree swing to help us utilize the different spaces.  The day was captured perfectly by Anne Marie Photography.

 

 

Cassie and Josh...A Hill Country Wedding

Ya'll, Josh and Cass' wedding was absolutely sublime!  There were so many unique aspects of this wedding that made it a Texas Hill Country experience.  Gruene Estate was honored to be part of this amazing event.

A central theme that made this day so special, was that it was centered around the couples deep Christian faith.  For each of their guest, they hand selected a vintage Christian book and wrote a personalized note on the inside cover to the individual.  The thought, time, and detail is incredibly sweet and loving.

The couple decided to take an un-traditional route in terms of catering.  Food Trucks from Austin were the perfect addition to create a unique atmosphere.  As we have mentioned in the past, Gruene Estate is a wonderful place to have food trucks.  Our open air pavilion provides enough space for up to three food trucks to park immediately next to the dance floor and reception area.  This gives your guest one of a kind food options to choose from. This is a nice touch, and a fun way to bring some otherwise un-available food genres to Historic Gruene.  Garbos Lobster truck and Chela's Taco truck from Austin did an amazing job of serving some delicious food in a fast and efficient way!  Both food trucks are highly ranked in their respected categories.  They were so much fun to have on the property.

In addition to the food trucks, Silver Cloud Trailer Events out of Austin provided non-stop fun with their vintage air stream photo booth.  Their mission statement is to "spread joy" with their air-stream trailers.  Mission accomplished: as the line was long and the guest enjoyed the unique experience.  

1778 Photographie was there to capture every moment.  For those of you who have been following us on social media, you have seen these guy's photos before.  Always light and fresh, they did a great job of capturing some shots that we have never seen (and we've seen a lot!), and did some really creative things with the camera.  Check out the gallery above to see some of the hi-lights from the evening.

Gruene Estate is the Texas Hill Country's premier wedding and event venue located in Historic Gruene Texas.  We designed and built Gruene's original open air wedding chapel and venue.  Call or email us today to schedule your tour of Gruene's boutique wedding venue.
