    Beautiful venue

    We loved having our wedding at the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center. As we had guests coming from all over the country, we wanted a space that felt very Austin and the center was perfect. There was so much for people to walk around and see and enjoy before the ceremony and during cocktail hour and so many options for where to have all the events of the evening. It rained most of the day, just clearing before the ceremony and that made all the blooms and plant life that much more lush. It was exquisitely beautiful and felt like a fairy tale. We also had to reschedule our wedding because of COVID and they couldn't have been more accommodating and helpful during the whole process.

    Best venue ever

    Such a beautiful and amazing venue! Once I found this place, I knew this was the one. SO many great areas for pictures and ceremony spaces. Caitlyn was very responsive and helped us find a new date when we decided to postpone. Couldn’t be happier! Also our guests couldn’t stop talking about how beautiful the venue is :).

    Gorgeous Venue

    The Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center provides a picturesque, natural, Austin-y place for a wedding. The natural stone, wood, and metal elements of the facilities alongside the expansive fields of wildflowers in the springtime are what drew us to this place and ultimately why we chose it as our wedding venue. The Wildflower Center also carries a lot of history and heritage which you can feel when you step onto the gorgeous grounds. As a wedding venue, it was perfect for us because it had a rain plan if it did rain, we had a place to get ready onsite, and it was well priced. The venue was extremely clean and well kept for our big day. They are continually making updates to the property to keep it well maintained and appealing to couples looking to get married there in the future. The only downfall of this venue is that your ceremony cannot start before 6:30 pm which can make for a late dinner and reception for your guests. There are also a lot of restrictions on things you can and cannot do there since it’s a nature and wildflower conservatory. Other than that, this venue was a home run for us and we would highly recommend it to anyone else looking for a wedding venue in Austin, Texas.
