The Chandelier of Gruene is a new Hill Country wedding venue in New Braunfels, Texas. It’s charming, modern, and all-around perfect! Not only is the venue beautiful, but the ladies who own and manage it are the sweetest! Myra and her girls are so very helpful, and you can tell they really love their couples. I’ve had the privilege of photographing The Chandelier a couple of times now, and I wanted to share everything I know about this beautiful venue!
First things first, their reception barn is beautiful and holds up to FIVE HUNDRED people! Having an intimate wedding? Don’t worry, whether you’re having 50 guests or 500, it will look beautiful!it also has beautiful iron doors with a chandelier to welcome you and your guests. Something I love about this venue is the preparation rooms. The guys have this fun antique bar in their suite!
And the girls have this beautiful window light! It is complete with a wall-to-wall mirror with beauty chairs and plenty of getting ready space! Here comes my all-time favorite thing about this venue: The open-air little white wedding chapel. It’s A-dorable!
It’s the perfect spot to have your ceremony. These photos are actually from a fun styled shoot that I photographed last month! The Petal Post is responsible for these pretty flowers :) Imagine having your first kiss under this beautiful chandelier! *insert all the heart eyes here* My favorite part about my favorite chapel: The bell that couples ring together after they seal the deal. There’s also this luscious light that is every photographer’s DREAM!
Sydney and Bryan are a real couple who modeled for us. Their 4 year anniversary was just a couple of days after this, so it was kind of like their anniversary session! They were so sweet and they killed it in the best way. Something unique about this barn is the exposed Chicago brick on the wall that peeks through in a subtle way. And, of course, the mother of all chandeliers. You HAVE to see this in person! Another great feature in the reception barn is the uplighting! You can customize it to any color to coordinate with your wedding. We chose ivory. There’s an ample amount of space to have a lounge area set up. This beautiful furniture and accessories are from Rustic Romance Rentals.
