Tie the knot in taste with these styled violet vows at The Chandelier of Gruene! Rustic in design with some Germanic touches reflecting the rich history of Gruene, this florally adorned venue feels like what love is all about. In this gallery, Janeane Marie Photography captures beautiful, light-filled shots around the space and floral installations carefully created by Bouquets of Austin, such as an oversized arch in garden shades to match the venue’s grand cathedral windows. Romantic pillar candles around the base of the arrangements was the perfect final touch. The Chandelier of Gruene is located on a spectacular, secluded acreage in the Texas Hill Country just minutes from historic Gruene, Texas. As you enter the wedding venue, an oak canopied lane leads you to a picturesque open-air chapel nestled amongst a grassy meadow surrounded by majestic towering oaks. Throughout the property, you will find architectural treasures such as cathedral ceilings, hand-troweled walls, lanterns and several glass chandeliers. We love the way it looks with some romantic floral design to add color and warmth! Read on for a note from the florist about the inspiration behind the flowers and design that made these violet vows so sweet. Cheers!

From the florist, Stephanie of Bouquets of Austin: “I took one look at the gorgeous cathedral-style windows at The Chandelier of Gruene and knew that a romantic oversized garden arch would be the perfect design.  The ‘arch’ was designed in a modern, dissected, asymmetrical style. Luxurious and oversized, plus just over 12 feet tall,  it featured a garden of blooms in shades of purples and lavenders – Ocean song, cool water, Andrea and quicksand roses along with varieties of stock, larkspur, delphinium, anemones and tulips complemented the base of native smilax foliage; finished with assorted sized pillar candles for that final romantic touch!”
