We knew we were going to get married at The Chandelier of Gruene before we were even engaged. Just looking at it, you can tell it's a beautiful open air chapel and reception hall. What you don't see at that point, is the amazing staff. The Zunker family and all their staff were absolutely phenomenal. Always professional, attentive to detail, and quick to respond to any questions we had. They were amazing to work with. The location was beautiful, our wedding looked as if it was out of a fairy tale. The beautiful chapel fit all our guests, the patio where we held cocktail hour was laid out beautifully, and the reception hall was so clean and perfect. Even in the summer, it never felt too hot under the oak trees. Ringing the bell after our ceremony, topped the whole experience off and we got some great pictures out of it. We can't thank the Chandelier of Gruene enough for our beautiful wedding!Sent on 06/13/2019

I can't say enough great things!!!
This wedding venue was the first place we visited and I just KNEW! I HAD to get married here.Sent on 09/05/2019
G O R G E O U S ! ! ! This place is a dream. I booked like 10 months in advance (and booked it for the busy season) - we honestly got lucky. Everyone is so professional and helpful. I would literally email them wondering what a dimension of a window is and she'd go out and measure and email me back in like 10 minutes...!!! Awesome. They know what they're doing and they really care about their brides and grooms and everyone that follows. We were blown away and (for obvious reasons) Chandelier of Gruene holds such a special place in our hearts.
Chandelier of Gruene's reply:Your wedding day was STUNNING!! We absolutely loved working with you and you're vendors. We are always beyond excited to hear we were able to give our couples a place to make their own and bring their Dream Day to life! Thank you for you review. We wish you both a life full of love and laughs!

Our wedding was beautifully amazing and besides my wife being the most beautiful bride ever, the Chandelier of Gruene was the chief reason in making the most perfect amazing wedding ever. I have been to many wedding venues in the Hill Country and this one is hands down the best (nothing compares)!! Everything you could want and need is right there on the property. The option to use the Ranch house next door worked perfectly for my wife and her family. The bride and groom suites on property are perfect for getting ready and pre-wedding bonding. The chapel makes for a very intimate romantic wedding with plenty of room for our 260 guests. The cocktail bar under the oak trees was perfect for our cocktail hour that immediately followed our ceremony. The spacious venue hall and the ability to set the seating and tables were you would like helps creates a unique and personalized experience. The team at The Chandelier was so responsive and was so helpful in making sure everything was to our liking and perfect for our special day! The Chandelier at Gruene is so perfect and I can promise you, you will not be disappointed if you decide to choose The Chandelier of Gruene for your special day! It was one of the most amazing days of our lives so far. Thank you so much to The Chandelier of Gruene!!Sent on 06/04/2019
