    A Texas Hill Country Garden Wedding To Remember!

    The Gardens of Cranesbury View is an amazing venue and it was the perfect setting for our wedding and reception. Our guests are still telling us how beautiful our outdoor ceremony was, how wonderful the suggested vendors were, and how much fun they had in the gardens. This is all thanks to Amy and her team!

    The venue has recently finished large renovations since we booked our date and all changes were for the best! Groomsmen now have the entirety of the lower floor in the main house, while the bride and bridesmaids have their run of the top level (including the balcony). The ceremony site has also been given some TLC, with a walkway and surrounding greenery. Additionally, Amy offers many decorations for rent, a concise and helpful list of vendors, tips and tricks to best use her venue, and complimentary roaming chickens. :D

    Amy truly cares about her venue and desires to improve upon it with each and every booking. She lives and breathes weddings, so be ready to match your excitement to hers! You’ll be glad to have Amy on your side and to have this amazing piece of Texas hill country in your memories.

    Thank you for everything!

    Amy was very helpful

    This place is perfect, my personal style didn't match the traditional styles the venues of texas have to offer. The gardens of cranesbury view however was exactly what I was looking for.

    Our wedding on June 12, 2020

    When we visited the Gardens of Cranesbury View for the first time, we instantly knew this was the venue for us! Everything about the gardens is absolutely beautiful. I love how the entire venue displays the beauty of God's creation. I also love the European style set in the Texas hill country. Even one of our guests from Italy said it was the most beautiful wedding venue he has ever seen! Our wedding day couldn't have been more perfect, even in the midst of a pandemic! We chose Amy as our wedding coordinator as well, and she did an amazing job creating the wedding of our dreams. Because of her we didn't have to worry about all the little details; she took care of everything so we wouldn't have to! I feel so blessed we had Amy's expertise, and I'm so thankful we chose the Gardens of Cranesbury View!

    Absolutely perfect venue, exceeded our expectations

    Absolutely stunning setting for our wedding, could not have been happier! When we first visited TGCV we were immediately taken with the grounds and how lovely and well maintained the gardens were. We were determined to stick to our budget and Amy helped us select a wedding date and day that would meet our pricing, and gave us a list of vendors to use--all of whom were professional and reasonably priced. After a lot of searching and price checking, we booked Amy for her coordinating services as well which was really the key to how exceptional our day was. We were able to drop items/decorations off early to alleviate same day stresses, she asked for our vision on the things we were specific about and used her years of experience to fill in the rest and perfectly captured the feeling we wanted for our day. We had a large wedding party but she was still able to move quickly and professionally through the rehearsal with our rowdy crew. The wedding day went like literal clockwork and it was breathtaking to see the stunning grounds set up in the way my fiance and I had imagined. Every detail was tended to which made our day completely carefree and Amy kept things running smoothly. Our guests absolutely loved being able to tour the gardens throughout the evening. I can't possibly recommend this venue or this vendor as highly as they deserve, by the time your wedding day is done you will know just as we did that this was the best decision you could've made!

    Perfect Venue for the Best Day Ever!

    My husband Campbell and I got married at this venue in mid-December , and it is absolutely stunning! It was so beautiful that some of our guests took their Christmas card photos here while waiting for the ceremony to start LOL. Amy (the owner) made us feel seen and known as a couple, and worked hard to create such a special day. Instead of feeling like just another number cycled through the venue, we felt truly loved and celebrated. She is personable and genuine, two character traits that can be rare to find in the wedding industry.

    Not only did we have the pleasure of having our wedding at her venue, but we also booked Amy as our wedding coordinator and florist. Since horticulture is Amy’s specialty, the flowers were AMAZING and are still alive in my kitchen long after the wedding. As a coordinator, Amy made sure the day ran smoothly and was thoughtful enough to schedule in time for my husband and I to celebrate alone in the bridal suite. During the reception, she also gave us plenty of time to eat (which hardly ever happens at a wedding). She was a fierce protector of our time and made sure we weren’t bothered at all by communicating with the other vendors on our behalf. Campbell and I are so grateful for Amy, and couldn’t have imagined the day without her!

    Fairytale Garden Wedding

    Our wedding at The Gardens of Cranesbury View was a dream! We got so many compliments on the beautiful gardens and romantic feel of the venue. Amy took care of everything and kept the whole day running smooth. My family and I didn't have to stress or worry, she made sure everything was perfect. We are so grateful to her and her team. Our wedding day felt like a fairytale. We are so happy we choose The Gardens of Cranesbury View for our day!

    Caring and professional coordinator

    Amy takes amazing care of her clients. My guests commented on how beautiful the venue was, and my mother commented on how everything during the wedding went smoothly because she was our wedding coordinator.
    She went above and beyond to make sure that everything was set up correctly for the wedding. At our 30 day meeting, she asked a lot of questions that I forgot to think about for the wedding, like appetizers during cocktail hour!
    She also took time to set up the decorations beautifully, just the way that I wanted it. She's very detail oriented, responsible, and overall just "on top of everything".
    Furthermore, she's a local business that supports and recommends other local businesses around New Braunfels/San Antonio areas. I recommend her venue to the fullest.

    Amy and hunter did fabulous the day of the wedding. Everything was set up and they had everything in order. Things ran smoothly and they do everything they can to prevent stress on the bride and groom. As for the venue itself it is breath taking. It is a beautiful European inspired garden that wows. I would recommend this venue for your big day!

    Where to begin. Mrs Amy is such an amazing coordinator. You feel like you are apart of her family with the hospitality she provides. I felt like we were in great hands the entire process. I love plans and timelines and to have her on the same page, was fantastic. She is always upbeat and happy but very professional. Her gardens are spectacular and the rose bushes were in bloom on our wedding day. If you’re lucky, you might even get to see a chicken!:) I have only great things to say about the Gardens of Cranesbury View!! It was the wedding of my dreams.

    When I had my first tour with Amy, I felt extremely comfortable and stress free! I knew she would listen to our wants and desires, and jump through hoops to make it happen, thats just who she is. There is no coordinator out there like Amy. Also the venue is STUNNING. It's on the top of a hill, so when you're near the gazebo there is a gorgeous view of the hill country with a nice breeze. One of the most beautiful venues I've ever been to.

    If I could give 10 stars, I would! My wedding was flawless. My husband & I loved- every. single. second. Amy & her team did an OUTSTANDING job of making sure everything ran smoothly. I HIGHLY recommend Amy as your wedding coordinator. It is worth every single penny. Starting from her positive attitude during the initial tour to {FAST FORWARD} a year later- big hugs & love during the send off- Amy never missed a beat. She spent time & effort getting to know our families & their cultures. She took careful notes & took special attention to detail. Amy knows EXACTLY what she is doing & her coordination helps keep you on track. Amy's coordination definitely helped us plan our perfect wedding day. We both worked full time during the planning of our wedding & Amy was always there to answer questions & assure us that we were on the right track. She does an amazing job of getting in touch with your vendors, as well as, offering tips to ensure a smooth day. We fell in love with the venue & will always have this special place in our hearts. Amy & Sarah were just incredibly sweet to every single guest. We had the wedding of our dreams & couldn't ask for anymore. We've been married a little over 3 weeks & not a day has gone by where we don't talk about our wedding & the fun we had. Our guests also have continuously mentioned to us how much fun they had & how beautiful the venue was. Thank you, Amy, Sarah, & Gardens of Cranesbury Team! Cheers to you!

    When my son and his bride chose The Gardens of Cranesbury View for a late August wedding, the thing we worried most about was the 100+ degree heat we might experience. Never in a million years did we expect to deal with Hurricane Harvey! From the beginning, Amy and her team made planning the wedding effortless. Both the bride and groom lived out of the area, so a lot of the planning was done long distance and finalized just a few days before the wedding. Amy's 20+ years of experience were invaluable! And when several other venues were forced to cancel their weddings August 26th because of the weather, Amy very calmly and very confidently assured us that everything would be perfect, and it was! Even when we decided early in the day to move the wedding up a hour to better accommodate our guests, she coordinated with all the vendors and provided seamless service! Having an indoor wedding at the venue wasn't their first choice, but everything was set up beautifully. When the ceremony was over, the ballroom instantly transformed from ceremony seating to the tables for the reception and party. Despite the fact that Harvey was blowing and going outside, you never knew it inside! Our families can't thank Amy enough for everything she and her team did that day. It was beautiful! And it was certainly memorable! And we were all blessed in the process!

    We had our wedding here in June, and it was an absolute dream! Amy is incredibly detail oriented and client focused. One of the biggest factors why we chose this venue was because Amy was so on top of everything, and makes you feel like family from the first time you speak with her. Leading up to the wedding she was always there to lend advice, help me put together last minute details, and was just a calming friend to talk to. I can't say enough good things about my experience with her. Even after the wedding, Amy takes such good care of you and makes sure your first steps into married life are absolutely perfect. The venue is so beautiful and we have such amazing pictures! Thank you for everything Amy! I can't recommend getting married here enough!

    The Wedding of my dreams!! I went to the Bridal Extravaganza with hopes of finding a venue. I found several that I wanted to see, with The Gardens of Cranesbury at the top of my list. When I got home my 2 maid of honors and I went through each flyer. At the top of Amy's flyer I wrote "She has her stuff in order!" (with several stars and smiley faces) Amy was so calm at the Extravaganza; when other vendors are barking at you to come look at their booth; she was calming and pleasant. Amy's venue was the first venue my fiancé and I looked at. Amy gave me a tour of the facility and it was breathtaking. It was everything I had hoped for. She took me down the path that I would be walking with my father and I couldn't hold back the tears. It just felt right! We looked at 3 other venues, but none of them gave me the same feeling as I did at The Gardens of Cranesbury View. To top it all off, I used Amy as my venue, florist and coordinator. She made planning a wedding easy!! With the coordinator package she told me exactly what I needed to be doing and when, what outside vendors she recommended and took all the stress off of me. The flowers were gorgeous!! From the bouquets to the flower arrangements on the table and the gazebo, it was stunning and the pictures turned out beautiful. Many guests told me that I looked like a page right out of Alice in Wonderland. Amy and her staff comes highly recommended!!!

    My wife found The Gardens in a magazine and loved it from the start, and only fell more in love after seeing the venue in person and meeting with Amy the first time. We knew then and there that this was our venue and could not have made a better choice as far as I'm concerned. Amy stayed on top of everything from day one all the way through the day of the wedding. She made it clear what we had to do on our end and there was never any confusion (on a side note, not one of the other venues that we looked into would have provided someone to help us throughout the process on the level that Amy does, which was another amazing perk). She communicates wonderfully and made us incredibly proud to say that she made sure our wedding went on perfectly, and I couldn't have asked for a better day, I only wish it could have gone on longer! She deserves every bit of praise that she gets!

    This venue made our wedding a complete dream wedding. Amy really captured my dream and our friends and family were amazed and that's what we wanted. If we could do it again, we would do it here again. The staff were amazing people and made us feel so welcomed and at home, we were stressed free. Everything was so very well organized and went smoothly. The first time we met Amy we were welcomed with opened arms and working with her was amazingly easy. We got so many compliments on our wedding and we cant thank Amy and her assistances enough for all the hard work they did for us. The view was amazing itself and made it extra special. I remember our guests reactions, from just driving through the gate they were wowed!!!!!! And that was amazing for us. I loved how amy was there for the ceremony and reception and just made sure we were doing great. And the venders that she referred us to were amazing as well and new how things went the day of the wedding and they themselves would tell was that Amy was an amazing women. So I would definitely recommend this venue and the amazing staff as well. Thank you again to Amy and her staff for making our day a Special one and one to remember!

    We must've toured every wedding reception venue in New Braunfels, and worried we wouldn't find a place that would work, we came to our last appointment with Amy Collins. From the moment we met her and saw the grounds, we were so relieved- it was perfect! Amy took care of everything, from providing great vendor recommendations, to timelines, to decorating suggestions, she knows her business inside and out! We weren't stressed once during the planning process! Amy's even included in the price as the best day-of coordinator you could ever ask for. She made sure everything flowed smoothly on wedding day, and all of the little extras were taken care of. Neither we nor our families had to worry about a thing other than having fun! Our friends and family keep telling us how great our wedding was and how much fun they had! That's all we could've ever asked for.

    Our wedding was in the rainiest May on record, but we worried not! Not only is this venue lovely inside and out, but we knew our special day was in the hands of the best in the business. Amy and her staff have done it all. They helped us talk through our vision of our special day and select the vendors that they have seen best meet those visions. Amy stuck to our budget and helped us negotiate what was really important to us. And have you seen the Gardens' flower arrangements? Gorgeous. So as our wedding approached, we didn't have to worry about whether we'd get married beneath the elegant gazebo overlooking rolling, largely undeveloped Hill Country in all directions--or whether rain would chase us into the still lovely ballroom with charming finishings and big windows overlooking the courtyard. We knew that Amy and her staff would pull off a spectacular event either way. Yes, the rain miraculously held off and we got the outdoor ceremony of our dreams, but what we cherish most looking back is the joy and encouragement Amy shared with us as we planned--and the prayers she prayed over us as we began this new chapter in our lives.

    Amy with the Gardens of Cranesbury View really put this venue above and beyond any other venue that we look at during our process. Not only is the property beautiful and something you don't find much of, but the quality of service that Amy provided was what really made our experience with her seamless. She is the main person of contact that you deal with through the whole process and she is truly passionate and cares about the couples getting married. She has really thought of everything when she created her venue to make it run smoothly and not show any of the back of house process that goes on. And her manicured gardens are a paradise for Photographers and videographers to catch some amazing shots with Butterflies and beautiful flowers everywhere. I would definitely recommend this venue to anyone I come across looking to get married in the Hill Country!
