When we envisioned creating Gruene Estate, we wanted to do something different and original. Located on 17 sprawling acres on what was once the Gruene family homestead, we wanted to stay true to the history of the property. There are many venues in the Texas Hill Country, and alot of them appear to be new and relatively the same. Our chapel was created with unique aspects that set it apart from other ceremony spaces.
The original design and concept was developed around our stained glass windows. The five windows were found on a church in England that was slated for demolition. When we received them, several of the panes were broken. Our stained glass window repair man confirmed that they are most likely well over 100 years old, and that they are indeed from the North of England. This was determined by the type of glass, which is distinctive to that part of the country. In addition to the windows, our bell is hand crafted by the Verdin family in Michigan. They are 6th generation bell makers that have been making bells since 1846. Ringing the bell when a couple says "I do" is the perfect touch to the ceremony.
