Ravanne and Shane A Texas Hill Country Wedding at Gruene Estate

Y'all,  we just received some amazing photos from Lindsey Mueller Photography from Austin Texas.  She shot a spring wedding at Gruene Estate that was truly amazing.  The details from Raveanne and Shane's day are truly unique and beautiful.  

It is always the little things that make the big picture so bright.  One aspect that they did really well, was to bring in vintage furniture rentals and create really special hang out areas.  They had a really neat kids tee pee area that was to die for, a vintage hammock setup, and a really neat photo booth.  If you haven't been to Gruene Estate lately, we have recently added some additional patio space that was largely unused in past events.  These areas are great for adding lounge areas, photo booths, bar space, or even catering spaces.  Take a look at these photos, as there are some great ideas for future brides or brides to be!

Here is a list of additional venodors:

Caterer: Cartewheels Catering 

Florist: Edens Echo

Ross and Julie, A Gruene Estate Fairy-tale Wedding


 This amazing film was shot by PhotoHouse Films from Austin.  Ross and Julie's wedding was basiclly a true life fairy-tale at our open air chapel at Gruene Estate.  This video captures the sweetest vows I think that we have ever heard.  Watching these amazing moments on film, reminds of us why we love our job so much.  I mean serioulsy, we can't think of a more rewarding way to see the by product of our hard work.  Watching two people become one and, and then the emotion that is displayed in the process.  The responsibility is overwhelming, but it is totally worth it!  Call or email us today to come and tour the grounds!  

Courtney & Jonathan, A Wedding at Gruene Estate


We recently recieved some great new wedding videos from our friends at PhotoHouse Films from Austin Texas.  This video is from Courtney and Jonathans wedding from last year.  The footage is amazing!  I do want to just add that we have made some changes to Gruene's original open air chapel.  We added arbors on both sides so that we can accomodate up to 250 rain or shine. This footage was shot before the addition, so it looks a little different now.  

Gruene Estate is the Texas Hill Country's premier open air wedding venue.  The historic Gruene family home, built in 1855, our original open air chapel, and rustic pavilion are the centerpieces of the venue.  Located on 17 acres in the heart of New Braunfels and Gruene, we are ideally situated to take advantage of all our amazing towns have to offer.  Call or email us to book your tour today!




Feeling Honored....14 Open-Air Chapels That Will Rival Jason Mraz’s Outdoor Wedding Venue


Photo by Local Embers & Co.

Our vision for Gruene Estate was to create a one of kind wedding and event venue in the heart of the Texas Hill Country.  We searched long and hard for very unique pieces that would make our chapel and venue a special place.  We are all about the details at Gruene Estate.

Through a source in San Antonio, we found our authentic stained glass windows that were removed from a church in the South of England.  The concept of our chapel was for guest to be able to experience the beauty and open fields of the historic Gruene family farm.  One hundred and fifty years ago, the Gruene's could have chosen any locaion, but they chose this one for the natural beauty of the land.  The open sides of the chapel allow nature to be part of the ceremony.  

We are so honored to be freatured by Brit+Co. in, 14 Open-Air Chapels That Will Rival Jason Mraz's Outdoor Wedding Venue.  To be included in a list with some of these other venues is truly humbling!  We are so thankful and proud that we are able such a unique wedding experience in the heart of historic Gruene Texas and New Braunfels..

Fun, easy, & relaxing.

Texas country charm is already built in.
