A new place for weddings and receptions, Gruene Estate

With all the rustic charm of Texas and the romantic elegance of France, Gruene Estate is New Braunfels’ newest wedding venue.

Owners, Danny and Anna Lisa Tamez have created a unique and beautiful setting for couples to begin their lives together.

Stained glass windows from an old church in England were the inspiration for the open-air chapel that seats up to 200 wedding guests.  As the bride enters through the large wooden doors from France, a bell in the bell tower announces her arrival.

 

Make a Plan B

Written by Katie @ Lovebird Productions

outdoor_weddingWhen planning my wedding I always dreamed of having an outdoor shindig. From the beginning, I wanted stars, sunsets, lights and a fog machine (true story). I searched various places to find just the right venue. The ultimate goal for Rusty and I was to plan an outdoor wedding weekend. We wanted friends and family to get to spend the whole weekend having a wonderful time. How often do you get to spend time just enjoying each others company? It also helped spreading things out over the weekend for those who traveled long distances. So did I make a plan B?

Written by NB Bride

Bride with tan in white wedding gownEverything looks better with a tan…especially a white wedding gown! Every bride wants to glow on her special day, and now there’s a safe, sunless way to tan.

Tantogo is the premier spray tanning salon in New Braunfels. Owner Brandi Mayo, a registered esthetician, was working in a popular local salon in 2010 when she hit on the idea of opening her own spray tan business. Her husband, Neel, agreed to partner with her and in mid-2010 they sprayed their first customer in their home. But with two small, curious children underfoot, the tanning booth was soon moved into the couple’s garage.

Honesty With Dress Shopping

Written by Katie @ Lovebird Productions

Hi all! Tuesday is already here. I decided that it was time for one of those really honest posts. Let's not waste any time and dive right in.

How cute are they? Boho, you are the best. I figured that we should talk a bit about dress shopping aka the day every girl dreams of. I can remember tagging along to many dress shopping adventures with my friends. I just knew that when my day came I would wear a sweetheart neckline, capped sleeve, flowing gown based on all my "experience." When it was finally my time, I stuck with those style gowns. Guess what? They were a bust. What I thought was going to be my wedding dress style was completely off.

The Joy of Inspiration Boards

Written by Katie @ Lovebird Productions

It might be hard to believe but there was a time when Pinterest didn't exist. A time when wedding blogs were new to the world wide web and ladies planned their wedding based off of magazines, books or what their cousins wedding was like. Gasp! It can be done but thank goodness the wedding world is full of fabulous inspiration. Whether it is a blog post or a picture in a magazine, we are surrounded by stunning images and creativity.
