Austin Wedding Venue – Hummingbird House

Hummingbird House is the best garden wedding venue in Austin, Texas!

Here at Nikk Nguyen Photo, we are huge fans of the Hummingbird House! We truly believe it is the best garden wedding venue in Austin, Texas. 

Hummingbird House is located in South Austin, about 12 miles from downtown. Given how perfectly pristine and peaceful this lush garden property is, you would never guess it’s so close to the hustle and bustle of the city. 

This venue, which is owned by Tom Tinguely, originally started out as his home. He is a horticultural expert, and he actually has spent over 25 years curating and caring for the gardens on this property. He has been invested in making Hummingbird House the most magical place in Austin for a long time!

Have your romantic garden wedding ceremony at the outdoor courtyard

If you want to get married at Hummingbird House, we highly recommend holding your wedding ceremony at the outdoor courtyard. This part of the venue offers more than five acres of gorgeous landscaping and lush gardens and can seat up to 200 guests.

The endless number of vibrant, colorful plants here make the gardens feel like a private, tropical island. Plus, there are classic stone and brick walkways, sophisticated statues, soft landscape lighting, crystal clear pools, and flowing fountains throughout the property as well.

Whether you get married under the romantic gazebo or want a more minimal backdrop, such as the garden’s white stone and wood wall, Hummingbird House’s courtyard is the perfect place for an elegant garden wedding ceremony!

Hummingbird House’s glass pavilion is perfect for a grand reception

After you say “I do!” in the beautiful courtyard, it’s time to celebrate the rest of the night away! Hummingbird House has an ideal set up for your cocktail hour before the reception: a giant white-top tent with sheer draping and a large chandelier on the inside ceiling. This tent is great because it still matches the glamorous, classy feel of the gardens, yet it’s also casual enough so you can relax and let loose with your loved ones.

For the actual reception, Hummingbird House has a grand, glass-walled pavilion. To say it’s stunning would be an understatement! Plus, the floor-to-ceiling glass walls give you and your guests an awesome view of the gardens.

Similar to the cocktail tent, the pavilion’s ceiling also has sheer, silk draping and three sparkling crystal chandeliers. It feels like you’re in a fairytale ballroom, surrounded by lush flowers and plants just feet away.  It doesn’t get any more romantic and beautiful than this!

You’ll love the amenities at this award-winning Austin wedding venue

Hummingbird House offers plenty of fabulous amenities to couples who choose the property for their wedding venue. For example, luxury tables and chairs are included in this venue’s wedding packages, so you have what you need for both the ceremony and reception. (Luxury bathrooms are available for use on the property as well.)

The bride and her entourage can get ready in the spacious Bridal Suite, which includes a lounge, dressing room, salon, and covered patio. Also, there are plenty of mirrors in the suite so you can see how gorgeous you look from every angle!

Don’t worry, there’s a suite for the groom and groomsmen, too! This space has tons of fun features, such as a foosball table, leather sofa, mahogany wood, and mini fridge.

The gorgeous grounds and wonderful amenities make it obvious why Hummingbird House has won many awards for being a top Austin wedding venue.

Testimonials

Darian Awstan

“This wedding venue is the best in Austin. It feels like a breath of fresh air upon walking in and feels like a floral oasis. It is absolutely beautiful and perfect in every way. I loved that there was so much space for guests to venture out into during the reception and how it didn’t confine guests to one space. The ceremony area is so gorgeous that we didn’t add many extra decorations. The AC in the reception area is the best touch during a summer wedding in Texas. Danny was our on-site manager and was the best and most fun to work with. He always met us with high energy, helpful suggestions and solutions. He was professional at all times and made our wedding vision come true. I would not change a thing about our special day being held at Hummingbird House.”

“HIGHLY recommend this venue. There really is nothing else like it and the pictures don’t do it justice. It’s gorgeous and there’s so many prime mingling spots for guests. Courtyards with string lights, greenery everywhere, it’s beautiful. Danny is also so great to work with so it’s the icing on the cake!”
