Book Your Wedding with The Chandelier of Gruene


About Us

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. To-be-weds are welcome to use the facility's tables and chairs during the reception, as well as decorations. With the beauty of the buildings, you may opt to skip out on any fancy linens. The lighting and sound systems are top-notch, so you won't have any trouble making the place light up or entertaining your guests.


Extra Perks

Directly next to the hall is a small lodge that can be booked by the family of the bride and groom. The lodge features four bedrooms that fit a total of 16 guests. There's even a garage that has games for the entire family, such as air hockey and foosball.

  • Swimming pool
  • Wireless Internet service
  • Complimentary parking
  • Liability insurance

My fiancé and I visited The Chandelier of Gruene when they had just barely started construction.

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!!

Read More 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.

Meet The Owner

Myra Zunker

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.
