The Inside Scoop


FROM THE KNOT EDITORS

The First Look

This renovated historic Farmhaus is the ideal setting for a rustic farm wedding filled with charm and natural beauty. The Allen Farmhaus in New Branfels, Texas, is a family-run farm and event space steeped in over a hundred years of design and experience. The farm includes over 52 acres of immaculate land with both indoor and outdoor ceremony and reception spaces. The Bridal Suite is the original Farmhaus itself, featuring 12-foot ceilings, a wet bar, several delicate, cozy spaces for bridal party prep. Also, offering a private Grooms Suite separate from the Bridal Suite. Caterers can also feel fully equipped in the large food prep area located in the barn itself, allowing a seamless catering experience throughout the night. Ceremony and reception spots include:

Barn. This uniquely structured, 100-foot-long barn includes side-by-side sliding doors, opening up the event to the Texan night air. Up to 250 guests can celebrate in this space during a seated affair, and up to 299 friends and family can enjoy a standing cocktail reception. Groups of over 300 can be accommodated with special arrangements. The space's neutral architecture allows for any and all rustic wedding themes, giving couples free reign to realize their vision.

Ceremony Site. There are several outdoor ceremony options, including underneath a beautiful 300 year old oak tree that features an incredible natural canopy, throughout the grounds of the farm or in front of the scenic barn. All selections allow for stunning first-look and ceremony photos.

Tented Reception. Plenty of open space is available for an outdoor tented reception, incorporating the panoramic views of countryside and historic architecture. A stunning bar area is situated just next to the space, flanked by two towering trees and creating a natural reception ambiance in the landscape of the space.

Vintage charm meets southern excellence

The Allen Farmhaus brings a fresh perspective to vintage charm. Located right outside of the New Braunfels city limits, these 52 acres of rolling hay fields provide an unparalleled backdrop for the perfect wedding. A majestic setting under a historic 300 year old oak tree, a perfectly framed view of the rolling land for miles, and custom made grand sliding barn doors are only a few of the many options for the ideal on site ceremony location. Our reception barn features sliding barn doors throughout the space, providing an unobstructed view straight through the structure. The focus on bringing the outdoors in has never been so perfectly captured.

Meet The Manager

Cassie and Maitlyn

Raised on a farm not too far from The Allen Farmhaus, sisters Cassie and Maitlyn had always dreamed of getting back to their roots and working together. After discussing the idea of starting a wedding venue together for years, the two decided to finally take a leap of faith together. In October 2015, the sisters traded in their pen and paper for power tools and started to renovate the Bridal Suite. Since then they have worked on numerous other projects at The Allen Farmhaus and never looked back. It brings them joy to share the property, its history, and its future with others.
