Vendor Feature: The Cigar Vault on Buda’s Historic Main Street

We absolutely love being a part of the Buda, Tx community. Located just 15 mins south of downtown Austin, Buda's Historic Main Street boast a unique and ever-growing variety of shops and restaurants. One of our favorites is The Cigar Vault. Aptly named for its residence in the location of the old city bank, the Cigar Vault’s walk-in humidor is located in an actual vault! We also love the cozy indoor lounge, wine bar and beer garden — in addition to their extensive collection of cigars of course. We are thrilled that this great Buda, TX business will be attending our Winter Engagement Event.

Vendor Feature: Simply Delicious Custom Cakes

There is nothing sweeter than the decadent treats served at weddings! Simply Delicious' desserts and cakes are not only gorgeous, they are also totally scrumptious — our favorite is the coconut!  Candace and her team have been part of several weddings and shoots here over the past 2 years and we are so excited to have them participate in our 2nd Annual Winter Engagement Event on January 13th!  Candace's beautiful cakes and treat will take your breath away!

Sneak Peek of our Tent and Cabanas

We couldn't wait to share this sneak peek of our new Tidewater tent and Cabanas for overnight glamping!! We'll have more to show next week with amazing photos from Al Gawlik Photography but in the mean time enjoy this lovely film from Adam Grumbo!! 

Coming This Fall!!

We are so excited to announce the addition of a gorgeous Tidewater Sail Cloth Tent to our many amenities here at Garden Grove.

This luxurious high peaked tent is perfect for romantic receptions, elegant dinners and even a "Plan B" for inclement weather (but let’s be honest -- a "Plan B" never looked so good!!). To better serve our clients, our tent can be configured from a 59’ x 39’ foot print for more intimate events of 50 to 150 guests to as large as 59’ x 69’ for 350 or more guests! This sculpted white sail cloth tent glows at night and is simply a stunning work of art. It will allow your guests to experience our gorgeous gardens and Texas Hill Country views in luxury!

We can't wait to share photos of some tented weddings and events we have coming up this fall! We have other great additions in the works, too!! So if you haven't found your venue yet, make sure to come by for a tour and see all the gorgeous happenings at Garden Grove!!

Brittany and Josh's Romantic Summer Wedding: Jessica Frey Photography

Brittany and Josh's Summer Wedding was true magic! A casual vibe kept the day intimate and full of special family moments. From their hand gathered bouquets full of succulents straight from their yard, to some of the best Texas BBQ we've ever had; this was a absolute dream day. AND did you catch the dreamy light in Jessica Frey's gorgeous photographs?!? What a spectacular capture of our gorgeous Texas Hill Country.
