Get married in a secret garden
Even in the Texas summer, our guests still wanted to be outside sipping drinks and hanging out in the garden during the reception. The air-conditioned tent was a wonderful respite from the heat during our June wedding. The floor to ceiling windows and the white drapery make the tent magical.
Danny Hatt (the owner) is incredible! He was so patient with our incessant questions and accommodated many of our requests. Danny has such positive energy and helped ensure our day was exactly what we wanted it to be. We could not recommend Hummingbird House enough!

Hummingbird House is so perfectly tucked away, it' s a little oasis in Austin! I love the ceremony space... so quaint and the absolute perfect garden wedding. Receptions are divine in a stunning white tent and makes for beautiful photos which I love! The staff is personable and extremely helpful, can't wait to shoot my next wedding there!
I highly recommend Hummingbird House for weddings. It is a beautiful setting that appears to be in the country, yet very close to the City of Austin.
Had the pleasure of working with the Hummingbird House! Such a beautiful venue! We look forward to working together again in the future!
