LOVED this venue!

We found the LBJ Wildflower Center through my husband's mom, and we immediately knew it was the perfect venue for us. Since this venue isn't made for weddings, there are some logistics to take into account. For example, weddings can only start at 6 pm and the LBJ Wildflower Center has certain vendors it prefers to work with. But the venue is incredibly beautiful, especially in the spring, and we love that we will be able to visit the center in the future. The LBJ staff also led us to our planner, Kristin Catter Events!

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.

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鈥檛 be happier! Also our guests couldn鈥檛 stop talking about how beautiful the venue is :).
