About Gruene Estate

Gruene Estate is a farm in the San Antonio, Texas area with 15 sprawling acres for a couple’s wedding. This property’s historic inn and other vintage buildings serve as picturesque locations for photographs and memories, especially with the colorful glow of the many stained glass windows. Couples will find this radiant property in New Braunfels, Texas, a 45-minute drive from downtown San Antonio.

Facilities and Capacity
Up to 250 guests can join couples for their wedding at Gruene Estate. This farm combines nature with antiquity for the perfect rustic vintage event. Couples can exchange vows in the quaint and unassuming chapel. From the front, the chapel looks like any antique building with stained glass windows and a bell tower, however, upon entering guests will discover that the chapel has no walls save for the front facade of the structure. This open-air building ensures couples and guests don't overheat during the ceremony, which takes place in front of three tall stained glass windows with no walls between them. After the light and airy ceremony, couples and guests can head to the open-air pavilion for the reception celebration. The pavilion is long and rustic, with a bar and plenty of space for dining and dancing the night away.

Services Offered
The staff at Gruene Estate wants to make every wedding special. To do this, they offer the following event services for couples:

  • Accommodations
  • All-inclusive packages
  • Bridal suite
  • Event planning
  • Liability insurance
  • Lighting/sound
  • Parking
  • Wireless Internet


Accommodation
This facility sleeps up to 12 overnight guests thanks to two separate structures on the property. The original Gruene Family Farmhouse and the Cottage Studio both welcome couples and overnight guests after a night of wedding festivities.

History
The history of the site dates back to 1856, when Ernest Gruene first purchased the wooden structure on a half-acre of property. Gruene had come to America after growing up in Germany and marrying Antoinette Kloepper, seeking a better life and his own freedom. Ernest first built the Welsh Barn, where his family lived until the completion of the modest farmhouse. The property and family increased, and the current owners of the Gruene Estate aim to keep it true to its roots and heritage.

    My planning experience has been so great

    Everyone at Gruene Estate has been so helpful through the entire process. I was so scared of how this was going to go, it’s been stress free thanks to all their help.

    Beautiful Farmhouse Style Gruene Wedding

    This venue was perfect for my husband and I to say "I do" and celebrate with our friends and family! We loved not only the setup, atmosphere, and design, but the price, too! The staff is very friendly and helpful. They ensured we had our plan completed and walked us through every step of the way. They even provide decorations to help set up the big day that are beautiful and really tie into the design of the venue. I am so happy we decided to get married at Gruene Estate!!
