About

On WeddingWire since 2021

The Chapel at Gruene is a boutique wedding venue tucked away in the heart of New Braunfels, Texas. Located on ten private acres of beautiful Texan farmland, this picturesque chapel and enclosed reception hall provides once-in-a-lifetime occasions with a rustic yet elegant setting. It features everything a couple needs to bring their "I do's" to life, including stunning natural surroundings, a dedicated management team, and inviting overnight lodging.

Facilities and Capacity

The Chapel at Gruene can comfortably accommodate intimate weddings of up to 100 guests. The quaint and charming chapel is designed to resemble a classic country barn, complete with white shiplap walls, long white benches, high ceiling beams, and beautiful barn doors. A short path will then lead you to the newly completed enclosed reception hall where your celebration will take place. This ornate space features a modern French Country aesthetic, stunning exposed wooden beams, and exquisite chandeliers and lighting throughout. Your friends and family can mingle in the outdoor area where wooden cocktail tables and outdoor games are set up for cocktail hour. You can celebrate your love story under the Texan night sky in a romantic woodlands setting. You are free to decorate both spaces according to your wedding theme and tastes.

Services Offered

At The Chapel at Gruene, we are ready to help you put every detail in place so that you can enjoy your wedding to the fullest. We provide on site assistance to give you extra peace of mind throughout the day. Outside vendors are also permitted so that you can truly celebrate your day the way you have envisioned.

Lodging

So your loved ones can enjoy a restful night’s stay, the beautifully appointed cottages sleep up to 25 people and are included in your wedding package. Once the reception is over, the party may be carried over and continued at the cottages where we have firepits, horseshoes, and an outdoor seating area.

Plan your wedding at this beautiful venue!!

My husband and I first visited the venue a year before our wedding. And as soon as we first came onto the property, we immediately knew it was the one! And it's only grown to be more beautiful over time.

From the chapel's open walls concept, the immaculate landscaping, to the absolutely stunning reception hall, everything will astound you and your guests. It is the perfect blend of elegant and elevated, but not stuffy and too formal that guests won't feel comfortable letting loose. Having the cottages reserved for the night was a huge plus, as a few friends, family, and my partner and I spent the evening by the firepit and we could turn in whenever we choose to.

The owner, Michael, and the venue manager, Shelby, were as amazing as the grounds. We met Michael back last October and the love and pride he takes in his venue shows with his dedication and responsiveness. He is excellent with communication and is so helpful with questions (and I had A LOT of questions). Shelby was hired towards the end countdown of our wedding, but she was sure to impress us with her professionalism, her adaptability, and her keen eye to even the smallest details. She was so amazingly kind and Michael could not have put his venue in better hands!

All in all, my partner and I loved our day and we feel incredibly honored to have been able to host it at the Chapel at Gruene. Shelby, your support both before and after the day was so appreciated, and I cannot thank you enough. Michael, I hope you and your family continue to be proud of your venue, it is incredible!

Best value venue a bride could ask for!


We had the most amazing experience at The Chapel at Gruene. It was the perfect venue for our intimate destination wedding of 90 guests. Everyone loved staying in Gruene, and the cabins were perfect for our local guests. The property was beautifully manicured, and the wildflowers were abundant during our March wedding! We had a more formal, sit-down, plated dinner. I was going for a whimsical, garden-party vibe, and I was initially worried whether the venue could provide the more formal atmosphere I was looking for. It totally did! It is not just for brides looking for a rustic venue! We had a magical night and our guests could not stop raving. Michael and his team did an excellent job ensuring that our night was perfect. Plus, we saved so much money because of the excellent decor collection! You won’t regret booking this venue!

The Best Wedding Day Experience

Our wedding at The Chapel at Gruene was so perfect. The venue itself is so naturally beautiful, especially during the springtime. The staff were so sweet, professional, and helpful. The provided decor collection is perfect and saved us from spending a lot of our budget on decor. So happy we booked with The Chapel at Gruene.

Owner

We LOVE seeing couples getting married and making lasting memories. We've been involved in the wedding industry for over 6 years and, with Jesus leading us, started The Chapel at Gruene in the fall of 2021.

We wanted to create a venue that we would have wanted to get married at! It was important to have a mix of indoor and outdoor space in a quaint setting that is convenient for guests. With our on-site lodging, our couples can spend more time with their family and friends!
