Gruene Estate, a wedding and event venue located at 1030 River Road, New Braunfels, will celebrate its 10-year anniversary in May.

The venue offers an open-air chapel, a large covered reception area with a stage and a catering kitchen space along with lodging for guests both on-site and at several historic buildings in downtown New Braunfels.

Owners Daniel and Anna Lisa Tamez purchased the property—which once was the site of the 1856 settlement of Ernst and Antoinette Gruene—in 2011 and began holding weddings in 2013.

"I want everyone to feel the thing I feel the most [at Gruene Estate] is just comfort and a sense of peace. The history speaks to your soul; it's super authentic," Gruene Estates Manager Melinde Henderson said.

The venue hosted around 130 weddings in 2022. Tours and inquiries for reservations can be found on its website. 830-318-5582.
