About

Tiny T Ranch is a country wedding venue in Garfield, right on the edge of Travis County and Bastrop counties, and approximately 20 minutes east of downtown Austin, Texas. This charming 30-acre property features a large, rambling ranch house, a quaint and cosy chapel, and a lovely, spacious pavilion. Owner Spike Gillespie loves hosting weddings and other special events. Tiny T Ranch is the fulfilment of a lifelong dream, and Spike would be delighted and honored to make her beautiful ranch the perfect setting for your special day.

Facilities and Capacity

Tiny T Ranch is available for engagement parties, showers, rehearsal dinners, ceremonies, and receptions. The venue offers both indoor and uncovered outdoor event spaces. The ranch can accommodate up to 130 guests. The chapel seats up to 30 people, and the Molly Ivins Pavilion reception hall can comfortably hold 90 guests. Spike is an experienced wedding celebrant. She has been uniting couples throughout the Hill Country since 2006. She believes that you shouldn't have to spend the equivalent of a down payment to have a good time. You can rent the space for a couple of hours or a full day. Whatever your wedding vision, Spike wants to give you and your guests an experience to remember.

    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!

    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.

    I attended a weekend writing retreat held at the Tiny T Ranch and found it to be a fantastic venue. The house is roomy and comfortable easily accommodating the ten or so people who gathered to write. The grounds are lovely and include the Tiny Chapel perfect for an intimate wedding or a large affair. The Molly Ivins Pavillion offers a great space no matter what your event. I’ve since attended a memorial service, a public reading by local authors, and several other events at the ranch and cannot recommend it highly enough. Spike Gillespie acts as officiant, hostess, ringleader - whatever your event requires. She does so with grace, kindness, humor, and ferocity. You won’t be disappointed if you choose the Tiny T Ranch for your event.
