2017 was such a fabulous year!  It was exciting to see different brides bring their own style and perspective to the venue.  Our recent remodel of the historic Gruene Estate farm house has helped to transform the home into a more open and modern prep area.  In addition to the remodel, we applied and received the Texas State Historical Marker!  This is a big deal, as we have always thought of ourselves as proud keepers of the Gruene family heritage and tradition. 

Events in 2017 seemed to be more dynamic and individualized with unique and creative touches.  Hopefully, this means that we are doing something right, because this speaks to our original vision, of creating a wedding venue which allows couples to have an authentic, one of kind boutique wedding experience in the heart of the Texas Hill Country.   

In addition to our remodel, this year also saw the creation of a sister business called ShastaGram Photo booth.  Photo booths are a popular add on at many of our events.  Found in a pasture in Seguin, we renovated a 1966 Shasta Travel Trailer and turned it into a mobile trailer vintage photo booth.  This now allows our brides the convenience of booking a unique vintage piece, that adds to the overall guest experience.  It has been a great addition to the Gruene Estate family.

Below are just a few hi-lights from some of our amazing weddings in 2017.  Of course none of this would be possible without our incredible couples, and talented vendors that helped make each and every wedding a success!  We’re looking forward to a wonderful 2018.

Stehanie and Will we’re such a fun couple to work with!  Their wedding vision was captured so perfectly!  A rustic and authentic Texas wedding in historic Gruene that was subtly defined with unique touch of elegance.  Her dress, an perfect bateau neckline accented with a touch of lace.  His suit, a sophistacted and styish waistcoat with out the formal jacket!

This is such a intimate photo of Ashlee and Chase in their getaway car. Loving the metaphor…”things that last,things that hold up!”. This classic Cadillac has endured the test of time as has the Gruene family farm.  One hundred and sixty years and counting.  Love knows no boundaries of space and time and we look forward to many more historic and dazzling weddings!

One of our favorites!  Josh and Cassie in historic Gruene Estate’s open air pavilion.  Elegance and vintage style in a rustic setting!  Loving Cassie’s V-cut lace gown and vintage English circlet of flowers in her hair. Y’all, we’re dying over how beautiful this picture is!
