Brian and Christy, A December Wedding!

We love winter weddings!  It's so much quiter around town, and that time of year is usually pretty mild in Central Texas.  Most people don't realize, but December is actually a good month for outdoor weddings here in the Hill Country.  Christy and Brian are New Braunfels locals, and we were so lucky to have them at Gruene Estate.  Their day was captured perfectly by Twinty Photography from Austin Texas.  There wedding had so many unique decorations and personal touches.  It was truly a beautiful event!    

Gruene Estate is a wedding and event venue in the heart of the Texas Hill Country.  The original Gruene family homestead and 17 manicured acres create the perfect mix of country and chic.  Our one of a kind open air chapel and stained glass windows create the perfect place to say "I do"! We are currently booking for 2018, so call or email us today to schedule a tour!

What an amazing year at Gruene Estate.  When we stop to look back at all the events we did, time just seemed to fly right by.  We truly had a great time working with all our brides.  Honestly, there's not a lot of professions that allow you to work with so many different people and enjoy the best day of their lives.  We want to say thank you to all of ya'll who were part of this past year.  

2016 brought some changes to Gruene Estate, all in a positive way.  For starters, we added Carey Millington from Bash Events.  She is now our in house Co-oridinator and is doing a terrific job.  She brings 14 years of planning experience, and a wealth of knowledge of area vendors.  Carey is now included in your wedding package and is able to help brides throughout the planning process.  It has been great having her on the Gruene Estate team.  We are now able to provide brides with better service throught out the entirety of their planning experience.  

We received the The Knot Best of Award and Wedding Wire's Couple's Choice Award.  This is the fourth year in a row that we have recieved both those awards, and this is a testament to the excellence and quality product that Gruene Estate is offering the Hillcountry wedding market.  We also won Borrowed and Blues Best of Award for the most romantic venue in the San Antonio market.  This is a real honor, because this award is voted on by other industry vendors who see lots of other venues.  This reaffirms that we have stayed the course of our original vision, which is to provide brides with a one of a kind wedding experience in the Texas Hill Country.  

We are so thankful for such a wonderful year.  The changes at Gruene Estate have helped us provide a better experience for our brides.  Our staff is looking forward to making 2017 better then 2016.  We are excited about all that is on the horizon, and thank all our loyal customers and staff!
