Fall is here! Do you know what the means? The Texas sun is going to give us a break so we can fully enjoy outdoor weddings. Woohoo!
Last week I had the opportunity to visit The Chandelier of Gruene in New Braunfels, TX. This venue boasts a beautiful open-air chapel that seats up to 300 guests, and as you may have a guessed, a dazzling chandelier at the entrance to the chapel and at the ceremony stage. Not only is the space aesthetically pleasing, but it’s also prepared with 3 indoor speakers for your ceremony music, an outdoor speaker for guests to rhythmically float into the ceremony, and side coverings in case of sideways blowing rain.
Most importantly, there is a chapel bell to ring in the celebration of your marriage!
Now, let’s travel over to the reception just a minute walk away. During your walk, you’ll pass towering oaks and maybe see a few friendly deer along the way. Before we stop at reception, let’s stop for a few drinks on the patio for cocktail hour!
We’ve made it to the towering, rustic reception hall. For those of you with big families, this space can host up to 500 guests or can be intimately squared off with drapes for smaller gatherings. The hall provides space for a DJ/band, a projector for your monogram or sweet photos, optional suspended flower boxes to enchant your guests, tables/chairs ready to go, pin lighting to accent florals and the cake table, and onsite bridal suites to quickly access your belongings.
As another wedding planner colleague put it, The Chandelier was intentionally designed to host seamless weddings. We love that it’s a one-stop-shop for everything a couple would need to execute a beautifully, curated day.
