Get married in a secret garden

Since the first moment we saw Hummingbird House, we knew it was where we wanted to get married. The venue is a beautiful secret garden with so many great spaces for guests to mingle and play games. The Hummingbird House team maintains the grounds so well that you hardly need any decorations - it is so beautiful on its own! Our photographer and videographer both commented on how easy it would be to shoot/film at Hummingbird House because there are so many spectacular spaces. The pictures we鈥檝e gotten so far are breathtaking and seem like they were taken in some magical forest.
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!

As the mother-of-the-groom this past weekend, I was not directly involved with all of the venue details as were my lovely daughter-in-law and her family. I didn't know what to expect!! When we showed up for the rehearsal, HH literally had everything under control. The coordinators working with the wedding party were professional and personal exuding a warmth that went beyond their job. Then, the next day, as the rain stopped and the sun broke through the clouds HH again made the day easy, stress-less, and fun. The decor was just as we had all dreamed it would be -- from my vantage point, there was nothing left undone. From ensuring that our bride was out of sight from most early arriving guests and the groom, to gently making sure we were all where we were supposed be when we were supposed to be there, HH was there for us. Each one of the coordinators was discreetly present each step of the way gently moving us and reminding us of our time line while at the same time allowing the spirit to move us all toward an amazing celebration of marriage to be remembered. I highly recommend HH to all prospective brides and grooms!!

The French Summer Garden Brunch of our Dreams!!

We chose this venue because of the natural beauty of the grounds. Danny was so kind and helpful and ansered all of our question. The venue was gorgeous. The two suites on the property for getting ready were amazing. We also loved that there were chairs, tables, and a climate controlled tent included in the rental! This made our rental process weven easier. We did silk a couple silk flower garlands, but didn't need to allocate a ton for florals since the venue was decked out in plants and flowers already!
