Tiny T Ranch is truly a Austin, TX treasure! My wife, Jodi and I -- both practicing Catholics -- were wrestling with where to tie the knot after 11 years together as a couple when we met found ourselves at Tiny T Ranch one rainy night for a benefit concert hosted by Spike Gillespie. I was feeling frustrated by our inability to get married in the church when Spike opened her arms to us as if we were family, inviting us to get married at her homey, quirky, serene ranch just outside of Austin. She graciously gave us access to the ranch the entire wedding weekend, from Thursday through Sunday, and was beyond accommodating with our requests to use outside vendors, decorate the premises, and have our friends stay at the ranch with us. She even turned us on to her friend and fantastic caterer, Joanna at El Dorado Cafe (delicious and VERY affordable!) who, in turn, also treated us like family. We were married on Saturday, September 23, 2017, and the weekend was absolutely magical! And since we had the venue all weekend, we were able to keep costs low by having friends and family help us decorate starting on Thursday afternoon and we even had access on Sunday to clean up. Spike is a true gem! She was extremely responsive to all of our questions and concerns, and most importantly her top priority was our happiness. She allowed us to realize our dream wedding, which was her first priority, and opened the door for a weekend full of love. I highly HIGHLY recommend Tiny T Ranch for the most memorable, enjoyable and affordable Austin wedding out there! Thank you Spike and Tiny T Ranch!Sent on 11/27/2017

Amazing venue, great host, feels like home
When planning our wedding, we had one philosophy: work with people that are as excited about our wedding as we are. Spike is just about as warm, funny, interesting, and engaging as they come. The venue itself is breathtaking in the springtime, with the tiny chapel rising up from the wildflowers. The huge pavilion and pasture were a great fit for our 140 guests. My personal favorite thing was being able to stay at the ranch for four days. I wish we could've stayed four more! It's a relaxing, clean, and comfortable place for a wedding party to get ready. We loved the longhorns, horse, and donkey as well as the barn cats and chickens! Don't hesitate to check this place out - it's better than I can describe. I hope we can work with Spike again!Sent on 06/10/2019

Best Weekend Ever
I had my wedding here over the weekend and it was perfect for what I wanted. We had the venue from Thurs. to Sun. and it was so amazing. We had a ton of people in and out on Fri. and Sat. and we never felt over crowded inside the house. The chapel on the property is the reason I choose it and everyone loved it. I loved the reception area as I felt in other venues we would have been swallowed up by the size of it. We loved the indoor outdoor option of the reception and so did our guests. Spike, the owner was amazing to work with. She was very accommodating and when asked for suggestions on vendors she had quite a few choices. I ended up using 2 of the vendors she suggested and they worked out well. If you are looking for a place to have an outdoor wedding that you don't have to come and go on the same day and want to make a weekend of it, this is the place for you! We were also allowed to bring our dogs with us and that was a great help as well.Sent on 04/30/2019
