From Gruene Estate...Holly and Patrick had an intimate and beautiful wedding at Gruene Estate. The inspiration for their day, was a rustic natural setting, with neutral tones that blended into the beautiful landscape that is Gruene Estate. Wed in our original open-air chapel, Holly and Patrick were meant to be from the very beginning. Having attended high school together, but not actually knowing each other, they met after college at an event when Holly was home visiting family. A courtship ensued. They soon realized that throughout their lives they were often at the same events and in the same social circles but did not know each other. Knowing that Holly was "the one", Patrick proposed on a romantic Hill Country get away at Enchanted Rock.
