A Few Favorites From 2018

2018 was such a wonderful year.  Our goal has always been to create a one of kind, boutique wedding experience in Gruene Texas' only historic wedding venue.  Our company mantra is that are brides and grooms are priority number one!.  In order to create a unique wedding experience for them, we are currently renovating our pavilion, catering, and bar area.  The flow and ambiance will match with Gruene Estate's open air chapel, and the rustic elegance that our couples know and love!  We will do an official unveiling when renovations are complete.  In the meantime, here's just a couple of our favorite shots from 2018!

Colton and Erin's Gruene Estate Love Story

Erin and Colton were such a fun and laid back couple.  They had a very small, intimate, family wedding. Their day was relaxed and fun, yet beautiful.  Utilizing the natural beauty and elegance of Gruene Estate, they chose not to go overboard with decorations and flowers.  Everything was perfectly beautiful on its own, which allowed them to keep it simple, yet beautiful.

We love hearing about some of our couples favorite aspects of the day!  In Erin's own words,  here are a few of hers, "Seeing my son’s face during the ceremony,  he was so happy. Colton’s giant smile throughout the day and during our event made me feel so much joy...Riding down on the golf cart with my brother was very special, as my dad wasn’t able to attend the wedding because he was sick.  My little brother walked me down the isle which was really special...Having my hair and makeup done and feeling like a princess!"
