The Chandelier of Gruene came to reality after years of thought, research & prayers. In 2011, Myra and Tim purchased property that had a beautiful ranch home nestled among majestic oaks. It was a private oasis of Texas Hill Country, but yet so close to everything, including Historic Gruene, Texas just minutes away. They knew it had so much potential and before long they turned the property into Escondida de Gruene, a vacation rental and gathering place for family vacations and events hosting guests from all over the world.
Their long term vision was to incorporate the home into an exquisite wedding & events venue with a warm and welcoming feel just like the ranch home had offered for so many years prior. With Myra’s work career having started in the bridal industry some 35 years ago as a bridal consultant at a family owned bridal boutique, the purchase of the property and her and her husband’s vision in mind, she realized that she still had that burning passion to be part of the bridal industry. So here she is 35 years later, married (34 years and counting), has two beautiful daughters, gained two wonderful sons (in law) and two precious granddaughters.
Now she is back in the industry again, this time with her family at her side sharing that same passion. Together, they have turned that vision in to a reality. Ready to share their legacy built on the foundation of love provided from Myra’s parent’s marriage of 66 years and Tim’s parent’s marriage of 61 years, they are excited and blessed to bring this amazing venue to future married couples hoping they will find the same love and friendship that their family has found.
