The Hummingbird House is a wedding venue located in South Austin, Texas. This private space, which provides couples with garden settings in which to exchange their vows, was formerly a country home. Tom Tinguely, who is a horticultural expert, personally planned and tended to the gardens. These gardens reflect his labor of love and are truly a whimsical escape for couples and guests. With Tom’s lovely gardens, combined with the experience of his partner who is an event and wedding planner, the venue has been able to successfully plan and host hundreds of events on the property.
Facilities and Capacity
At the Hummingbird House, couples and guests will be surrounded by both carefully planned flowers and trees found throughout the property’s five-plus acres. Throughout the gardens, lighting has been placed to provide the perfect glow. For an outdoor ceremony, the courtyard provides the perfect tropical setting. This oasis also includes a 400-square-foot cocktail tent for your after-ceremony gatherings. To keep you and your guests comfortable regardless of the weather, you can select the climate-controlled pavilion. Here in this elegant 3,200-square-foot space, you will get to experience the glass panel walls as well as elegant decorations such as the crystal chandeliers. Just in case the weather decides not to cooperate, couples can move their ceremony into the reception pavilion so that their wedding can still take place. Even though the Hummingbird House is known for its romantic gardens, couples can also host their ceremony and reception indoors. The venue can accommodate up to 224 of your friends and family on your special day. To help you get ready in style, the property has a bridal suite and a groom’s suite. The bridal suite comes prepared with features such as a salon and dressing room, while the groom’s suite features relaxing elements such as leather sofas and a foosball table.
Many of the spaces, such as the courtyard, come complete with chairs and tables so that you have everything you need to host your ceremony and celebration on the property. Other decorations you can add include centerpieces, drapery, lighting, tent accessories, and more. The team at the Hummingbird House can help you with planning your big day. Other services include:

The Hummingbird House is beautiful! Everyone loved it and thinks it creates a "fairy tale" wedding. I agree, it was a wonderful venue. Danny, one of the owners showed us around. He was great. Courtney helped us along the way and was there through the rehearsal and big day making sure everything went smoothly. She did an amazing job, and you would be lucky to have her helping you through your wedding day. There is a designed bridal suite and groom's suite, which is great (and not available at all venues). Everything is outside, beautifully manicured lawns and flower beds, and has super cute lighting all around. The package includes the wedding seating and tables and chairs at the receptions which is a big savings. We loved that there was a tented reception area, dedicated area for the wedding, and a separate bar area. We had a cocktail hour while we were taking pictures and there was plenty of space for yard games and guests to sit, drink and chat. Courtney helped with all of the set up the day of as well as packing everything up and getting it into cars for us to get it home. Overall, is was perfect and we were so happy that we decided to go with Hummingbird House.

Hummingbird House is a fantasy venue straight from our dreams with a staff that is marvelous to work with. We discovered this venue online and setup a tour right away. The venue speaks for itself, with a beautiful garden that doesn't need much decoration at all, especially for the ceremony. We had our wedding at the end of March and the gazebo was fully flowered and our guests made so many compliments about the venue. Not only that, but Danny and Courtney were amazing to work with! Danny was kind and made us feel welcome right away on our tour, and Courtney, our day of coordinator.... no words can describe how helpful she was on our big day. From coordinating with our vendors and making sure everything went smoothly, to mitigating surprises that inevitably come up on a wedding day, she made our day perfect and made things that could have been disastrous funny memories.
They also are a really flexible venue that allows you to pick the vendors that will make your day special, but they don't leave you in the dark and do provide awesome preferred vendors as well.
Cannot recommend this venue enough!

This venue is amazing! I looked at several venues in Austin but nothing compared to the natural beauty and amazing outdoor/indoor space for our wedding. Courtney, the wedding coordinator, is super responsive and willing to work with you on any questions that you have in order to make your wedding day perfect!

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!
