Brides Maides Are Off The Hook---Theirs an App For That!


You don't need to get all of your bridesmaids together to tie bows on wedding favors anymore. Instead, lots of couples are enlisting wedding planning help through apps like TaskRabbit to take on any small to-dos, TouristEye to help plan the honeymoon itinerary, and (ahem) The Knot Wedding Planner app to find and get in touch with all of the right wedding pros. Being a wedding guest is easier this year too. All of the major registries make it easy to buy gifts straight from your phone, and Uber and Lyft ensure guests don't have trouble finding a ride at the end of the night.

9 Apps You Need For Your Wedding!

Drone Wedding Photos and GoPro Videos


If you want a view of your wedding from every angle imaginable then try this trend. Some photographers are getting in on the action by using drones to capture aerial shots, like the view of your ceremony from overhead and the amazing scenery. Videographers are doing it too by bringing along GoPro cameras to the wedding in addition to their video cameras. The cool part about these is that they can be attached to a "selfie stick" to get ultra-creative shots of you and your guests on the dance floor and record your guests’ candid reactions as they enter the reception.

Congratulations to The Williamsons

Congratulations to Kyla and Bryan Williamson!  They were joined in union at Gruene Estate's open air wedding chapel on April 18th, 2015.  Despite the heavy rain storms that have plagued the New Braunfels area, the wedding was perfect and the weather was clear for their special day (check out some of the photos with the amazing evening sky back drop!).  This couple, who is from the strawberry capital of Poteet, made homemade strawberry jam as souvenirs for their wedding guests.  We wish you the best of luck, and we are very proud to have been part of your amazing day!

Fantastic Engagement Photo

We wanted to thank Karleigh and Patrick for sending us this great shot from their recent engagement photo shoot at Gruene Estate.  This cute couple will be tying the knot at G.E. in April of 2016.  Photo credit goes to Shelby Nicole Photography of New Braunfels.  We're looking forward to being a part of your special day!

Fun, easy, & relaxing.
