Hummingbird is the most amazing garden setting for a wedding and at a fraction of the cost of most of the wedding sites my husband and I had visited (some places up-charge to personalize the setting or turn on existing lights - not HH!!) The gardens are in bloom year-round and the team works together to keep the grounds, indoor and outdoor venues extremely well-kept... And that can be a hard thing to do in the Austin heat! It was the perfect setting for our wedding in late May :)
In regards to the team, Danny and Courtney are simply fabulous! They assist throughout the planning process and act as day-of planners, going above and beyond to make your special event spectacular. They are great with communication (especially email) and follow-through, very thorough, and help each couple by reviewing vendor contracts so that you don't experience any unnecessary charges or take on additional stress.
Just one look at the venue and you know this is a special place. An encounter with Danny and Courtney will let you know that it's run by a caring and exceptional team!

I don't even know where to begin because I am still so amazed at how wonderful this venue truly is. From the moment we took our first tour of the venue with Danny over a year ago, we knew immediately this was going to be our venue. Danny made us feel at ease, and knew exactly how to make me feel so special as a bride from the moment we met. Over the next year of planning, the staff at Hummingbird House never hesitated to answer my questions time and time again, and never made me feel silly for asking, even though I'm sure they hear THE SAME questions on a daily basis from every bride. Any time I had family or friends in from out of town, I was eager to show off my venue to them, and Danny and Courtney were always there with a smile to welcome them and show us around. The day of the wedding could not have been more perfect, and being able to get ready at the venue and feel totally relaxed was awesome. Courtney and Danny set up everything for us, and made the reception tent looking amazing beyond words. I did not lift one finger, and I felt pampered the entire day! During the reception, I constantly had guests coming up to me telling me how GORGEOUS the venue is and how they wished they knew about it before they got married. A few couples even told me they want to do their wedding all over again so they can have it at Hummingbird House. From beginning to end, this is the PERFECT venue for your special day and me and my husband felt like King and Queen of the day thanks to the beautiful setting and professionalism of Danny and Courtney and everyone at Hummingbird House that help make it a fantastic venue. THANK YOU for making our day so memorable!

We celebrated our wedding here taken along the path by Courtney. Since we booked the place late last year we were treated always with a positive and can do attitude to all the stupid questions we had to ask. We received prompt responses to our multiple calls and emails. A run through all the preparation details showed that they really know how to throw a party.
We provided our decoration (homemade) and shared out vision. We were amazed as how they carried out and how it surpassed our expectations. The place looked beautiful.
Courtney was around and on top of things during the rehearsal, ceremony and reception. We just had to be there and enjoy.
We were also surprised with our getaway car loaded with our change of clothes, wallets, cell phones, camera and everything we needed for our wedding night.
We are extremely happy with the Hummingbird House and their staff.

I was so pleased with my wedding at the HHouse! From the very beginning, I felt comfortable working with Courtney and Danny and they made an effort to make me feel special and like a valued customer. Two truly amazing people. Great communication - always called back or responded to emails - in a timely manner. They were so kind, and-oh-so importantly, organized! The wedding day was smooth and I hardly had to think about a thing - I was able to relax and enjoy, knowing it was all in good hands. Not sure that we could've have done without them! THANK YOU!
Great location - the venue is gorgeous if you're looking for an outdoor garden-y venue, and it's also easy for guests to find and close to hotels, compared to other outdoor venues.
They also recommended our caterer and that was a wonderful, delicious decision :)

Al I have to say is Danny and Courtney are absolutely amazing! They did a fantastic job pulling of our fairy tale wedding. Everything was absolutely perfect, could not have asked for anything better. This is the biggest hidden gem in Austin when it comes to a wedding venue, so glad we found it.

I saw the images online but they do not do HH justice, it is so much more beautiful in person! As soon as we walked into the garden I knew this was exactly where I wanted our wedding to be... The staff at Hummingbird House was FABULOUS! The day of the wedding was flawless and I know that it was because of the staff at HH... Danny and Courtney were easy to work with, extremely responsive and very professional from beginning to end. Anyone would feel at ease having their event here... thank you for making our day beautiful, wonderful and stress free!!!!

My wedding day was amazing, but it wouldn't be what it was without the Hummingbird House. Not only is this location so green and lush that you almost forget you are in TX, but Danny, Lauren, and Courtney take away so much of the stress of getting married. Anything I needed they were there! They even fought for me when one of my other venders was being difficult the day of the wedding.

I honestly cannot imagine a more perfect day than the one the Hummingbird House gave us for our wedding in May.
My husband and I had two distinct Austin "visions" and experiences for our wedding - he the hill country and I the outdoor/garden setting - but when we visited the Hummingbird House back in October, we were immediately struck by the natural beauty of the site and friendliness of the team. The decision was clear from the start.
Even though we were originally working through a coordinator who left HH, we weren't worried; Danny and his co-coordinators Courtney and Lauren made the arrangements absolutely seamless. I think our laid-back approach matched each other's pretty well, but I'm convinced that even the highest maintenance bride would feel at ease in their hands. They know all the answers to all the questions, will take care of all the questions you never knew to ask, and know how to make a party last all night long.
You will not be disappointed. Getting a chance to work with this team is an experience in itself. They really made everything very intentional, special and unique, and work their tails off to make it so. Too many details to count. We love Hummingbird House!

My husband Matt and I got married at the Hummingbird House this past April. Having a long engagement we communicated with the owner Danny over the course of a year and a half. We aren't from Austin so even with the last minute trips he would always accommodate our every request. Danny and the staff were so easy and helpful to work with. When the wedding day came everything was flawless, we didn't have to coordinate anything or worry about a single detail. Everything was beautiful and exactly as planned. If I had to do it all over again I wouldn't change a thing. They gave us everything we wanted and we are so happy we chose the Hummingird House for our wedding.

After meeting Danny at the Hummingbird House, my husband and I knew we wanted to book with them! On top of the beautiful venue, he and his team provided so much help - from suggesting the best vendors to work with to taking so much responsibility off our hands so we could focus on what really mattered. Our wedding wouldn't have been the most amazing day of our lives without the help from Danny and his team. Literally, every vendor they suggested had the same positive energy and willingness to work together to make our day perfect.
And the venue itself! We were floored on our first visit in January, but we couldn't have imagined a more perfect setting! It can be difficult maintaining a tropical garden in Texas, especially with last year's drought, but they did a spectacular job! I can't wait for a friend to get engaged so I can refer them to Danny and the Hummingbird House!

I can not begin to explain how fantastic my wedding was because of Danny and the Hummingbird House staff! From the planning to the day of Danny was so involved. We had three meetings but corresponded a lot through email. On the day of the wedding the Huumingbird House was so prepared. I really got to enjoy my day and really soak it up. I spent time with my bridesmaids and my groom it was just wonderful. We had the ceremony at a small chapel and Danny was there to get everyone ready and set. Once we were done there Danny was already at the Hummingbird House getting things ready. Once we got to the reception we tools pictures then we were sorted where the food was present almost instantly. I really am grateful to have had such a great support system during the weddi g so that my groom and I could really take it all in.

Hummingbird House is a gorgeous venue with a pool area, garden, gazebo, and everything you need to plan the perfect wedding. I wanted a venue where I could have the ceremony and reception so I wouldn't have to have extra time for driving to a different place and so we wouldn't have to worry about losing any family members between sites.
Danny, Lauren, and Courtney did an amazing job for me! Even though the lady I originally met with left, Danny assured me the transfer of details would go smoothly and that everything would be great. He was right. Everything was perfect!
HH is more expensive than other venues in the area, but it is incredible. It all comes down to what is most important to you. If a breathtaking venue is high on your list, check this place out. As soon as we saw HH, we knew we didn't want to even look anywhere else. We were lucky enough to get the last open Friday in April (it's a little less expensive than Saturday). The weather was perfect, the venue was perfect. Everyone commented and still comments on how incredible the site was.
My wedding was absolutely perfect, thanks to my details, Danny's vision, and his amazing staff who took care of absolutely everything, including the things that my detailed mind forgot to plan!
HH took care of details like the dance floor, lighting in the reception tent sheers and a monogram light for the dance floor, pads for the reception chairs, table linens, bartender, security guard, reserving the exit car that I wanted and couldn't find anywhere, organizing and running my entire wedding, and Danny had a cake stand that I borrowed when I couldn't find one anywhere else and was totally stressed out. He even put a ribbon around the edge of the cake stand to give it a little oomph.
If you leave your wedding in the capable and talented hands of Danny and his staff, you will not be disappointed. For me, the money I spent at HH was the best possible investment I could have made for the most special day of my life. They are worth every penny. Especially Danny. He is absolutely the best asset I had in the days leading up to my wedding day, and on the day itself, he was invaluable. I couldn't have done this without him.
The cost I'm listing is just for the time at HH itself. All of the other details like chair pads, lighting, dance floor, bartender, security guard, and exit car all cost extra. You can pick and choose which things you want/need based on which things are most important to you.
Your wedding can be as beautiful as you ever imagined or dreamed it could be with Hummingbird House and Danny.

My wedding at Hummingbird House was more beautiful than I ever imagined it could be. The landscaping, white lights, lanterns, and reception tent are gorgeous at any time of year. The staff, Danny and his team, were AMAZING. They made sure that everything ran smoothly and that I didn't have to worry about a thing, except maybe not to trip over my dress during the first dance. :) If I got stressed, a wink and a smile from Danny reassured me. Getting married at Hummingbird House felt like a fairy tale come true. I would highly recommend going to meet Danny to have a look around. You will not be disappointed!

I would recommend Hummingbird House to everyone! It's beautiful and well kept year around, and the tent is gorgeous! They have the BEST staff and wedding coordinators. Danny and his two assistants do everything for the bride & groom to make the day go perfect. I could not have had a better experience it was PERFECT!
