Gruene Estate, A Hill Country Wedding Venue

I'm so happy to show you these beautiful rustic wedding photos at the Gruene Estate in Gruene, Texas. I loved second shooting this wedding with a very dear friend/sister of mine Alyse Lea Photography. This was the first time shooting almost 5 full rolls of film! I can’t even believe I did it, but it’s a start. I love how the film images are creamy and sharp at the same time. If you love the feel of these images its because they are mostly film since I was able to second shoot I was able to shoot more film than I normally do being able have more room for error. I highly suggest if you want to start shooting film to do it for weddings you second shoot once you have taken all of the pictures that your main photographer wants/needs you to do for them on digital, and of course always make sure it is okay with the main photographer.......Click Here To Link To Article

Chelsea and Jay...Beautiful Gruene Estate Wedding

Spring is finally here.  With all the rain we had early in the year and plenty of sunshine and cool weather, it came a little earlier then usual.  Everything is really turning green and we are in full wedding mode here at Gruene Estate.  One of the great aspects of working at Gruene Estate is that we have the unique privelege of getting to see most of our couples wedding pictures.  Gary Blake Photography came out and shot Jay and Chelsea's special day and did a great job capturing those special moments that really show you what the day was like.

We are so happy for Chelsea and Jay, and we wish them best of luck.  Their day was perfect as they were joined in marriage in Gruene Estate's open air chapel.  Upon conclusion of the ceremony, they danced the night away in our open air pavilion.  Their table decorations were spectacular, as they brought in tons of vintage dishes and colored glass bottles that made each place setting unique and memorable.  The Gruene Estate staff is so glad that we could be part of their special day.   

Congratulations Natalia and Adam

Horses, paper punch garlands, vibrant floral arrangements, a beautiful couple deeply in love — this wedding has it all. Natalia and Adam exchanged vows at the stunning Gruene Estate in the most adorable open-air chapel, following by a colorful reception with heaps of handmade touches. Jessica Scott Photography and Rosehip Flora‘s work shine in this wedding!

Meredith and Jace

 Meredith and Jace, what a lovely couple!  We really enjyoed getting to know these two wonderful people.  Their wedding day was absolutely spectacular and we think these photos from Shy Photography are absolutely amazing and capture the day perfectly.  We have a lot of weddings here at Gruene Estate, they are all beautiful and special in their own way, but the floral arangements were incredible.  They were done by Kyla Beesley at Jackson Durham.   Check more of their amazing photos at Shy Photography's blog.  

Fun, easy, & relaxing.

Texas country charm is already built in.
