Gruene Estate

San Antonio



Nestled in the heart of the hill country, Gruene Estate is the perfect place to say “I do”. The Gruene Estate, the original Gruene homestead, spreads over 15 acres in New Braunfels, Texas located conveniently between Austin and San Antonio. The secluded property consists of several structures including the 1857 home of Ernst and Antoinette Gruene, a charming wedding chapel with antique European stained glass windows, clusters of crystal chandeliers, a brass bell tower, as well as an open-air pavilion and other historical housing. Say your nuptials in the beautiful chapel beneath soaring white rafters and a stunning backdrop of the pastoral countryside through the windows. After your beautiful ceremony, the rustically romantic pavilion sets the stage for a romantic reception celebration. Lights twinkle above the wooden tables and chairs as the sun sets on the Texas hills. You and your guests will dine and dance together, creating memories to last a lifetime. As the stars come out, your picture-perfect day comes to a close just the way you’ve dreamed of at Gruene Estate.
