Massive heritage live oak trees and gorgeous gardens surround the Villa and provide your guests with a unique and romantic ambiance.With an annual average of 272 days free from rain, Garden Grove offers exceptional outdoor ceremony and receptions sites that can scale from an intimate soiree of less than 80 to much larger events. Your imagination will run wild with the possibilities... host your guests around the soothing sound of water falls trickling into our 50,000 gallon pool, under the big Texas sky on the expansive Lower Green or the cool shade of soaring oak trees on the Upper Green. Or, seat guests on the covered veranda that wraps around the 6,000+ SF Villa. Watch the dance of hummingbirds around the gardens and simply relax…
Do you dream of a fairy tale wedding under the soaring peaks of a sail cloth tent with flags flying like those in Harry Potter? Add our gorgeous sculptured high peak sailcloth tent, dance floor and professional fireworks for an event that guests will remember for a lifetime!
What makes Garden Grove Austin unique is our total commitment to excellence! Our goal is to provide you with the best possible offerings for the services we provide and to help you find the best vendors for those services we do not. To ensure you have a relaxing experience, we only schedule one event a weekend. Which means absolutely no clock-watching and you are welcome to book the venue for one day, overnight, or weekend, stay.
Many of our guests choose to arrive the day before the wedding with the bridal party. Host a rehearsal dinner or the bridesmaids in the Villa for the evening while the groomsmen lounge in the Club House sports bar or play a round of disc golf.
Grab a drink at the bar and dance the night away around the string-lit pool. Toast marshmallows in the fire pit while star gazing for under the expansive Austin, Texas sky. Or watch movies on the green with our 13’ projection screen!
Schedule a late night visit from one of Austin's finest food trucks for your guest's delight! Sleep up to 34 in the Villa and Cabanas on memory foam beds with 1,500 thread count sheets or Glamp in tents on the Lower Green under the stars.
Come visit us at Garden Grove Austin, and experience it for yourself!

I can't begin to express how wonderful it was to have my wedding at Garden Grove. My husband and I were married on 4/8/2017 and it was PERFECT.Sent on 05/29/2017

We had visited about 10 other venues that we were mostly underwhelmed by. Then we walked into Garden Grove and immediately knew that was where we'd be getting married. Jani and Shon greeted us with champagne and gave us the grand tour. Then we sat down under the trees and got to know each other. Jani and Shon live on the property and it's basically their home. They have weddings there because they love inviting families into their home for these wonderful celebrations. We did pay a little more for Garden Grove than the other venues we were looking at, but what we got for our money was SO MUCH MORE.
The property is stunning. It's like a California winery (without the wine). Shon is an amazing gardener. He spends so much time cultivating the gardens to the point that we hardly needed a florist. The natural beauty of Garden Grove was what made us want to get married there - we didn't have to add much at all.
Jani and Shon are also incredible, honest people. I loved getting to know them and spending time with them leading up to the wedding. Jani realized a few months after I'd paid her in full that she had accidentally charged me unnecessarily for taxes. She immediately cut us a check. I was so appreciative, as there are many people out there who would have kept the extra cash.
Another thing that was really helpful was that they only do one wedding per weekend so they can give you their full attention AND flexibility (which becomes important when you have deliveries and clean up to tend to).
If you want to be married in a garden under the trees on a beautiful estate out in hill country, Garden Grove is the way to go.

Garden Grove for the win
We highly recommend Garden Grove Event Venue! Jani and Shon, the owners, go above and beyond to help make sure your day can include everything you ever dreamed of. The property is beautiful all on its own, we did not even feel that any decorations were needed. Every guest was in awe of the venue, it’s beauty was the main topic of conversation. We booked the venue Friday - Sunday, so all of our wedding party could stay in the beautifully decorated and exceptionally comfortable cabins. We got to stay in the gorgeous honeymoon suite. For the wedding, we were able to use the many “yard games” they have available, which all of our guests (especially the kiddos) had a blast playing with. Garden Grove was especially perfect for a summer wedding as there is plenty of places with a/c for guests to hang out indoors (sitting room, game room, bar, etc), but also tons of shade under the trees so that even outside didn’t feel too bad.Sent on 06/29/2019
Being a same-sex couple, we were worried about venues in Texas taking issue with us. Where other venue people had given us strange looks, Jani and Shon never even batted at eye! They were so supportive, and helped us problem solve all of the somewhat non-traditional ideas we had in our heads. Throughout the whole planning process, they were there to answer any questions we had- or offer suggestions when we needed them. Wedding planning is HARD, but working with Garden Grove definitely relieved so much of that stress. We left Sunday morning feeling like we had gained another set of parents.
You really cannot go wrong booking Garden Grove for one of the most special days of your life. HIGHLY recommended!

Jani and Shon Saliga, the owners of Garden Grove, are the most amazing people to help you plan your wedding! We planned our wedding a year and a half in advance, and the whole time we felt them by our side. They were always open to give tours to family members that wanted to see the venue and even if we wanted to just stop by for a chat. They are so flexible, basically all the decisions are up to you. It’s such a better experience when there are no required vendors, it allows you to make the wedding truly yours. The venue is beautiful and they put SO MUCH care and dedication into making sure the venue is naturally beautiful and that you can utilize any space you’d like. I highly recommend having your wedding at Garden Grove!Sent on 02/07/2019
