Book Your Wedding with The Chandelier of Gruene
A BALLROOM IN NEW BRAUNFELS, TX
Situated in New Braunfels, Texas, The Chandelier of Gruene is a brand new wedding venue that is perfect for couples who desire a country-feel while still having access to all of the latest amenities. The 12,000-square-foot property is lined with mature oak trees and has a multitude of first-look photo spots. Below is a list of the indoor and outdoor spaces that are available for either a ceremony or reception.
The Bridal Suite. The onsite bridal suite features a beautiful walkway that leads straight to the chapel. The building is divided up into a room for the bride and her bridesmaids and a room for the groom and his groomsmen. The cathedral ceilings make the suites feel more spacious. Lounge chairs and full-length mirrors can be found in both. The ladies get a makeup bar, while the men have a flat-screen television.
The Chapel. Step through the antique doors and you'll discover the beautiful open truss ceiling and the picturesque windows that look out across the immaculately manicured lawn. The chapel features multiple chandeliers and a bell that the bride and groom are encouraged to ring after being pronounced husband and wife.
The Hall. "Stunning" is the best word to describe the 12,000-square-foot Hall, which is able to accommodate up to 500 friends and family members. The facility is climate controlled for year-round use and has 10-foot sliding doors that allow you to make a grand entrance. The 32-foot ceilings are sure to impress, as are the exposed wooden beams.
The Patio. Just outside the magnificent hall is a 3,200-square-foot outdoor patio. This covered space can be used as a place to entertain guests or to host a cocktail reception. In addition to chandeliers for lighting, the patio has its own large gas fire pit and a row of rocking chairs.
What You Should Know
The staff at The Chandelier of Gruene work hard to ensure that every bride and groom feel special. Should you need assistance with anything during the planning of your ceremony or reception, the team is ready and willing to give a helping hand. Couples are free to use any vendor they wish, which allows them to stick within their budget. If you aren't sure who to use, however, the staff has a vendor list you can work from.
Once the contracts are signed, the bride and groom's wedding date is secured, and they are given exclusive use of the facility for the day specified. Not only will the couple receive the attention they deserve on their special day, but they will find the ceremony and reception feel more private.

We had our wedding here a couple of weeks ago and could not have asked for anything more! The Chandelier of Gruene is hands down the most stunning venue in Texas! (Our guests thought so, too!) Myra, the owner, is such a pleasure to work with and will make sure all of your needs are met. We had over 420 people at our wedding and there was PLENTY of room to dance and sit! All in all, we could not have asked for a better venue! Make your dreams come true at The Chandelier of Gruene!!
My fiancé and I visited The Chandelier of Gruene when they had just barely started construction. Myra, the owner, joyfully shared her vision for the venue and as we walked through what would be the chapel, we felt like it was where we were supposed to be married. Now the venue is completed and it is BEAUTIFUL. It has the dreamiest chapel with a reception hall just across the way. You can tell much thought & heart went into this place. The venue owners care deeply for their clients and they are such a pleasure to work with! I have been so confident in our venue decision throughout this whole process. They are incredibly helpful- they have provided us with a checklist to guide us and each time I have called or emailed with questions they are quick to respond. Amazing venue, amazing owners! Can't wait to get married here in one month from today!
Amazing venue! We attended the Batey wedding in August . The Chapel takes your breath away it’s beautiful. The Chandelier is the whole package of perfect.
We booked The Chandelier of Gruene in January while still under construction. Although there was not even sheetrock up yet, we knew this place was going to be something special. Myra and Chelsea were very responsive to every email I sent in the wedding planning process and allowed me to tour the venue 3 or 4 times with family and vendors while planning our big day. Our wedding was on September 23rd and it was the most beautiful setting I could have ever imagined. From exchanging our vows in the open-air chapel, to cocktail hour under beautiful oak trees, to the beautiful reception space where we danced the night away, everything was simply perfect. I highly recommend this venue if you are in search of an elegant Texas hill country wedding!!!
From the moment we saw The Chandelier of Gruene, we knew it was perfect venue for us (and it wasn't even completely built yet)! Myra is an amazing, amazing, amazing person and was always so kind when my family and I had a bajillion questions. I highly recommend The Chandelier of Gruene -- we received so many comments about how beautiful the venue was, and how it was "literally a fairy tale" with deer in the background. I would do it all over again with The Chandelier. They made our special day truly amazing.
We loved the Chandelier of Gruene and all of our guests said it was the most beautiful venue they have ever been to! The Zunker family was always available to help us and we were so impressed with how professional they were. This place is a dream, you won't regret it! -The Durans
This venue was absolutely my dream come true! There is nothing like it in the south Texas area. My mom and I went to tour before anything even had a roof and it was already everything I had ever wanted! Myra and her family go above and beyond to make sure your questions are answered in a very timely manner as well as help you with anything you may need throughout your wedding planning process. I honestly cannot say or think of anything negative about this venue or the people who run it. The chapel is perfect, the reception hall is spacious and beautiful, the bridal suite as well as the groom suite are big and gorgeous... everything was perfect!! Our wedding day was everything we ever dreamed it would be and more. You're not going to find another venue more perfect than The Chandelier of Gruene!! I promise!!
Absolutely beautiful venue! It was truly a dream come true to be married here!
I am currently living out of town and my fiancé and my parents went to look at the Chandelier of Gruene before the framing was even finished. They fell in love with the renditions and with Myra, and we ended up booking before I even had the chance to see it. Although at the time I was apprehensive about booking a venue that was not built and I had never seen, I am SO thankful that we did. The Chandelier of Gruene is absolutely beautiful and looks exactly like the renditions that sold us in the first place. I cannot wait to get married here in December and I would recommend the Chandelier of Gruene and Mrya to everyone!!
We booked The Chandelier of Gruene before the frame was up!! My daughter saw the vision and WOW!! I am so glad she did!! It is magnificent venue!! From the beginning Myra and her family were always available to answer our questions and concerns right away. Kaitlyn's wedding day was a dream and Myra and Tim went over and above to make sure that the whole wedding day experience was absolutely perfect!! And it was!! When we expressed our concern about the hot weather during the rehearsal the night before Myra ran out and bought fans to be strategically place behind the bridesmaids during the ceremony. Although Kaitlyn's wedding day may have been the hottest day of the year so far it really wasn't noticeable in the open air chapel during the ceremony. The reception hall was perfect for our large wedding and the bridal suite was ideal for our 10 bridesmaids, MOB & MOG and makeup artist. The reception was everything that we could have dreamed it would be right down to the sparkler exit and Myra and Tim were on sight making sure that we had everything we needed as the night unfolded. If you are planning a wedding in Texas you MUST consider The Chandelier of Gruene!! Beautiful Venue, fun town with lots of things to do!! You won't regret it!!
Meet The Owner
In 2011, Myra and Tim purchased property that had a beautiful ranch home nestled among majestic oaks. It was a private oasis of Texas Hill Country, but yet so close to everything, including Historic Gruene, Texas just minutes away. Their long term vision was to incorporate the home into an exquisite wedding & events venue with a warm and welcoming feel just like the ranch home had offered for so many years prior.
